Naam Shabana Movie Review:
In Bollywood Trend is going on for years to make sequels. Even if you talk about ‘Naam Shabana’, under the banner of Akshay Kumar, this movie is a prequel of the movie ‘Baby’, which was a big hit at the box office. The story of Naam Shabana is not ahead of ‘Baby’ but rather before of ‘Baby’’s story. The news is that the production company wanted to make this film with the title ‘Baby 2’, but Akshay did not want to add the word ‘Baby’ to the film, hence the title of the film was ‘Naam Shabana’.
By the way, the production company of the film claims that the film is based on a true incident, which was made with some cinematic Liberty. Incidentally, Akshay starrer Baby was seen in climax, and the character of Taapsee was about twenty minutes and now the character of Akshay Kumar has been reduced to about twenty minutes in the film. Of course, the title of the movie should not be Baby, but the role of Anupam Kher, Danny and Murli Sharma in the film is no different from ‘Baby’.
Yes, it is a different matter that Murali Sharma’s character is undoubtedly different from the previous film, but his minister’s PA character can not connect with this film anywhere. While the USP of the previous film was the best act of the previous film, the powerful script and Akshay Kumar, the only USP of the film is Taapsee Pannu.
Well, if some of the previous films of director of the film Shivam Nayar were to seen, her previous films could not do anything at the box office. In such a case, the name of the good banner ‘Naam Shabana’ is a box office hit with the starry star.
Shabana Khan (Taapsee Pannu) childhood is passing in the house looking at domestic discord. Shabana’s mother definitely took the marriage, but after the marriage, things changed so much that her married life ruined. Shabana’s father often beat her mother in the presence of Shabana at home, and her mother always used to call Shabana for help. After all, one day the scale of Shabana’s patience was broken. He fiercely attacked her father’s head that her father had died. Shabana has been sentenced to two years by the Juvenile Court.
The eyes of special Task Force chief Ranvir Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) fixed on Shabana when he killed her father. During college study, Shabana learned martial arts – judo karate and participated in many judo competitions. One day, her lover Jay is murdered in front of Shabana’s eyes. But the police is not doing anything by saying that there is no proof. In such circumstances, Task Force Chief Ranbir Shabana helps. With the help of Ranbir, Shabana conveys Jai’s killer to her conclusion.
Now Shabana become part of the task force, Shabana is sent to Malaysia after trends for a particular mission. She faces Tony alias Mikhail (Prithviraj Sukumaran), who supplies dangerous weapons to many terrorist organizations in the world. Here the helpers of the task force Ajay (Akshay Kumar) and Shukla ji (Anupam Kher) are also helping Shabana.
After ‘Pink’, Tapi once proved himself to be the industry’s best actor, who has the power to hit the film on her own. Action film on Taapsee, Stunt Scene is the largest USP of ther movie. In the role of Chief of the Task Force, Manoj Bajpai is very good. While Akshay Kumar played his role properly. Then Anupam Kher, Danny and Murli Sharma did what they did in the previous film.
Shivam Nayar has done the hardest work on the character of Fight Scenes and on Taapsee. At the same time, the script did not pay much attention, and that is why the interval pre-film is about to identify Shabana. After Interval, there are several turn after one in the story, which has managed to bind the audience to the story. Nayar also holds songs in the film which weakens the speed of the movie and increases the film’s duration unnecessarily.
The name of T series (music company) associated with the film. So in the story, two or three songs fit inexplicably. But the same songs remained the minus point of the film.
Why watch this film:
If you have seen ‘Baby’ then watch this movie. This time, the reason for watching the movie is not renewable. But the best acting of Taapsee Pannu as well as her dangerous action sequences to help the body without any body double.
