Taapsee Pannu starrer ‘Naam Shabana’ is all set for its release. Directed by Shivam Nair, the film is a prequel to the 2015 film ‘Baby’.
Story of the movie: The film is about Shabana (Taapsee Pannu) a girl with a dark past, who lives with her mother. After days of misery when she finally finds love in college mate Jay (Taher Shabbir Mithaiwala), fate plays another cruel strike. Jay dies an early, unfateful death that leaves Shabana devastated, clueless. As she is lunatically looking for a revenge to Jay’s untimely death, she gets calls from a mysterious agency, offering her help. In lieu of the help, she gets to be part of risky, sometimes life-threatening operations. What are all those operations after all? Which agency are they talking about? Will Taapsee succeed in vanquishing her love’s murderers? What does the future have in store for her? is the crux of the story.
Star Performance: Taapsee Pannu delivered a brilliant performance. On the other hand, Anupam Kher and Prithviraj Sukumaran have done justice to their roles. Akshay Kumar’s extended cameo is an interesting. While, Manoj Bajpayee has done a great job.
Music Direction: The film’s music is good.
Direction: The film’s direction is good and especially the location and action part is tremendous. Dialogues are also good. The first half indulges the protagonist and her love interest, Jai too much. It is only post-intermission, especially the last 35 minutes in which proceedings pick up. The story looks quite predictable.
Watch Or Not: The films can be watched once. Rest, your choice!
