Baby is a 2015 Indian Tamil horror movie directed by D Suresh. The story revolves around a separated couple who later reunite to protect their daughter from being haunted.
Sakthi (Shira Gaarg) after separated from her husband lives with her 6 years old daughter Adhithi (Sathanya). In her apartment, Adhithi starts hearing a voice calling her name and was afraid initially. After celebrating her birthday, Adhithi finds a doll near her floor lift and again hears that voice which asks her to take the doll as her birthday gift and Adhithi starts developing a likeness towards that voice and start seeing a ghostly figure to which she gets attached soon. On one night, Adhithi draws the ghostly figure in a piece of paper and writes her name as Anne. When Sakthi notices this drawing, she was bit worried and even consults a Psychiatrist who in-turn advises her to spend more time with her child.
Sakthi gets mentally disturbed when one of her friend conveys her that Adhithi neither looks like Sakthi nor Shiva (Manoj Bharathiraja), her husband. She goes for a DNA test with Adhithi and the test results turn to be negative – their DNA did not match with each other. Upset with this, she directly goes to her husband Shiva’s apartment and demands to take her biological daughter Avanthika (Baby Srivarshini) with her who was living with her father all these years.
After a hot discussion between the two, Shiva reveals a flashback as follows: When Avanthika was born, she was taken to ICU unit as she had some respiratory problem. Shiva with help of doctor gets another new born from another ward and places near Sakthi who was still asleep. He does this to protect Sakthi as she was mentally too weak to hear her own baby is suffering from respiratory problem. Later, when his own baby recovers Shiva tells the truth to Sakthi and gives back the other to doctor. But this another baby seems to be child of Anne (Anjali Rao) who dies of post-delivery fit after she sees her child was not present when she woke up from delivery pain. Shiva on seeing this decides to take this baby also with him and replaces the child again when Sakthi was sleeping.
