Naam Shabana celeb review: Taapsee Pannu and Akshay Kumar’s film called slick, intense and hard hitting by Bollywood celebrities
Taapsee Pannu starrer Naam Shabana a spin-off on her character from Akshay Kumar starrer Baby has garnered huge applause from Bollywood celebrities. The new movie puts the spotlight on Taapsee Pannu. She is joined by Manoj Bajpayee and Anupam Kher in her new venture. Akshay Kumar makes a special cameo in the film. The movie tells her journey from the typical girl-next-door to becoming a secret agent. This movie has not been directed by Neeraj Pandey who held the helm of the first film Baby but has Shivam Nair as the director.
Naam Shabana has been marketed as Taapsee Pannu’s film and the lead actors or male stars have all taken a backseat. In order to get into the skin of the character Taapsee Pannu learned Japanese martial arts and Israeli form of self-defense. Taapsee Pannu has been in the news recently for speaking against patriarchy and showed forms of self defense for girls with Akshay Kumar. Here in this movie she is joined by Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzogpa and Prithviraj Sukmuran as the main antagonist. Akshay Kumar has a short but a powerful role in the movie. The Bolywood celebs who saw the movie have been all praises for the film and the cast. However, the critics are less pleased with the story and the treatment. The critics who saw the film at the press show felt that the movie was too predictable while others felt that Taapsee Pannu had more impact in Baby. However, it all boils down to the audience’s reactions to the movie; after all they are the ones who make the movie a hit or a miss.
