Those who watched Neeraj Pandey’s Baby, feel in love with the cameo of Shabana shown in the movie. The love from fans led to urging the filmmakers in creating a whole 148 minute story on Shabana and it’s got everything that we all wanted to watch. The movie is about a special agent who is given the task by the Indian Intelligence Agencies for assassinating Prithviraj, a deadly arms dealer.
The movie is a lot about women empowerment and shows how women are no longer helpless. Even after the presence of actors like Akshay Kumar and Manoj Bajpayee, the limelight was only on Taapsee Pannu, which is definitely a good thing to have happened in our industry.
The movie also showcases the back story of Shabana, thus, proving why she became the woman she is today. While the first half is almost about Shabana’s love story with Jai, the other half is where the much awaited action starts. The action starts from Mumbai and then leads to Goa, then Vienna and then to Kuala Lumpur.
As action and drama lovers expect, it has a lot of twists and turns and one will enjoy themselves thoroughly throughout the second half.
In short, if you are in love with everything drama and action, Naam Shabana is the movie for you.
