One day Dushyant comes to know about her activities during a police raid where she has been caught with her friends and his world comes crashing down. In this situation how he manages to understand her problem and tries to Sasha’s behavior makes the rest of the film. Little Baby has ingredients to make it a watchable affair. Storytelling is simple and sticks to the point. There are not many twists and turns in the film and screenplay is crisp.

What clicks and makes the happenings believable on the screen is Director Shekhar S Jha’s handling of the subject which is not a usual subject. He shows maturity in handling situations which are very difficult if one imagines them in real life. One such scene is when Priyanshu comes to know that his daughter is caught in a raid and brought to his own police station. Full marks to Shekhar S Jha for his direction.

Among actors, Priyanshu Chatterjee shows what he is capable of, in his portrayal of a helpless father. He is one actor who should be seen more often on the screen. He is much matured very calm and has given a very controlled performance. GulnazSiganporia as Priyanshu Chatterjee’s young daughter looks the part of today’s restless young adults, but she is a bit amateur in acting. Her dialogue delivery is more like shouting most of the time, this could have been controlled by the director. Shivani Mahajan as mother does not get much scope. The casting of other actors could have been better in such a sensitive film.

AniketKhandagale’s cinematography looks fresh and Dehradun looks good where the film is shot. Editor Aseem Chhabra’s editing keeps the film crisp and short. Dialogues (Rashid Iqbal &Shekhar S Jha) lack the required punch and needed much attention in diction and consistency especially for Gulanz’s part.


Little Baby goes into territory where not many films have gone i.e. father-daughter relationship and it makes a sincere effort to tell the story with much maturity and right emotions. It makes a good option if you looking for a film to watch this weekend.

Director Shekhar Jha’s film may be a little weak but gives the emotions to you completely. In the role of a helpless father, Priyanshu Chatterjee has done full justice to his character while Gulnaaz also leaves his mark in the character of a spoiled rebel girl.

Overall, it would not be wrong to say that Little Baby is not a very big star cast nor a backup of a big production house, but due to the equation of relationships and the story itself, the film keeps you tied and there are many questions. She produces. Hence the film can be seen.
