Heyy Babyy
6.3OTTplay Rating
It indeed takes a village to raise a child. The film lays its premise on this proverb and comically shows how difficult it is to bring up a baby, even though it had three men helping each other. The film revolves around three womanisers played by Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan and Ritesh Deshmukh, who find a baby at their doorstep one fine day. They ask every woman they have slept with if they got pregnant and left the baby. All in no vain, the film, directed by Sajid Khan, then follows the three taking care of the baby and how their one-night stands turn to sleepless nights with all the crying and soiled diapers and bowls of baby food.
