The trailer for the upcoming movie, Naam Shabana was released recently. Directed by Shivam Nair and written by Neeraj Pandey, this movie is a spin-off of the 2015 hit, Baby, which was directed by Neeraj Pandey.
The Baby team is back, but this time, not Akshay Kumar, but Taapsee Pannu will be seen in the leading role. Naam Shabana is another action spy thriller which shall tell us the life of Shabana Khan – an agent in making.
The trailer looks fantastic and promises some edge of the seat action and suspense. We see Manoj Bajpayee (in his Special 26 style) leading the operations and narrating the story. The life history of Shabana Khan is shown and the trailer says it all. Motivated to take revenge, on the death of a close person, she becomes a part of the agency. Manoj Bajpayee, in a deal, promises her all the help and the training and asks her to do their work. The trailer shows that the movie has been shot in Malaysia.
We find out about the main antagonist, Tony aka Prithviraj Sukumaran, one of the world’s most wanted. On being asked if she has any help on a mission, Manoj Bajpayee says that he has sent one of the best and there we see, Akshay Kumar as Ajay Singh Rajput. We also get to see Anupam Kher as Om Prakash Shukla and Danny Denzongpa reprising their roles from Baby.
Taapsee impressed us with her short stint in Baby and she looks even fiercer in this movie. The Pink star reportedly went through an intensive training in the mixed martial arts to prepare for the role. It will be refreshing to see a woman agent in action and we are sure that Taapsee Pannu shall nail it. She proves the point that “One doesn’t need to be macho to be a badass.”
We eagerly look forward to the release of Naam Shabana on 31 March.
