Kalpana Lajmi’s directorial debut tells a story of extramarital sex in the tea gardens of Assam. Priyam (Azmi), married to the staid but loving Ved (Shah), has an affair with her former boyfriend Jeet (Shaikh) while her husband is away. She becomes pregnant. Having already had one miscarriage, she is determined to keep the baby despite her boyfriend’s protests. On his return, Ved eventually accepts both his unfaithful wife and her baby. Lajmi explained that she set the story in Assam to link the heroine’s innocence and later loneliness with the environment, but the easier if less sympathetic explanation is reviewer Aloknanda Datta’s (in Splice, July 1986) suggestion that the gardens merely provide an exotic backdrop. Famous Assamese singer-composer Hazarika contributes some fine compositions, overcoming the mandatory emphasis on regional folk-music in films set in exotic locales.
Ryan B (ru) wrote: Predictable French farce of a wannabe gay dad making bubba with an Argentine surrogate. Baby Love is a film begging to be taken seriously but due to the heavy-laden cliches and the somewhat preposterous plot mechanics, the movie fails to rise above the stock-standard drama-filled nature of a pedestrian gay flick. And that really is a shame since there was so much potential here to explore the relatively new frontier of gay parenting.

Cela devrait tre intressant si seulement le film ne durait pas deux longues heures et quart et si seulement les acteurs avaient tous t du calibre de Jean Reno, plutt pas trop mal ici. A la place, James Franco, Martin Henderson et les autres acteurs principaux (quasiment tous inconnus) sont extrmement mauvais, l'action franchement rptitive et les CGI dgotants. Flyboys est un film bte, long et ennuyeux, trois dfauts assez rdhibitoires, vous en conviendrez.
Pedro J (jp) wrote: Behind captivating visuals and a surprising performance by Ohgo, lies what's arguably Geisha's (biggest) weakness - the story. The vibrant colors that surround the film are never capable of hiding the undeveloped romance between Sayuri and the Chairman, which culminates in a pleasing, yet predictable climax.
