Deaf critic movie review of Naam Shabana
A hearing perspective:
Naam Shabana is a Hindi action and thriller film. It is directed by Shivam Nair and produced by Friday Filmworks.
It traces the origin of Shabana and her journey of how she became a part of the film ‘Baby’.
The film stars Taapsee Pannu as Shabana, Manoj Bajpayee as officer Ranvir, Prithviraj Sukumaran as villain Tony in a short role and Akshay Kumar as Ajay in a special role.
The film introduces Shabana as a college student and a Kudo champ living in Mumbai with her widowed mother.
One day, when Shabana and her boyfriend Jai were returning home, a group of four boys end up teasing Shabana.
Shabana gets into a fight with the boys and this results in Jai losing his life.
The way Shabana takes her revenge from the four boys and trains herself to join a secret mission led by Ranvir and Ajay to kill Tony forms the remaining part of the story.
First half of the film is very slow and there are times when one gets bored. The film picks up its real pace only in the second half.
The full movie belongs to Taapsee Pannu who has delivered a great performance.
The film is a one-time watch for Taapsee and ‘Baby’ movie fans.
