It might not have been a very bright idea to launch a trailer a day after Baahubali 2: The Conclusion trailer hit the internet. But Naam Shabana makers decided to take the risk. Naam Shabana trailer 2 is here. The Taapsee Pannu starrer action thriller is already creating a good buzz, and this attempt will add to it. Provided its doesn’t gets lost in the Baahubali frenzy that is trending on top.
Serving as a spin off as well as prequel to 2015 hit Baby, Naam Shabana has a some high octane action sequences. While majority of action movies these days depend heavily on CGI and VFX for thrill, Naam Shabana brings in a touch of realism with believable stunts. But Naam Shabana 2 trailer focuses more on the espionage aspect of the movie.The spy genre is not much explored in Bollywood, and hence Naam Shabana looks like a breath of fresh air. And to top that it has been backed by the popularity of Baby, Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar. It will tell the story about how Shabana got integrated with the Indian intelligence services. There is no particular scene in the new trailer that leaves a mark.
Akshay Kumar has more screen time in this new trailer, and we are not complaining. We understand that Akshay’s presence will play a crucial role in bringing the audience to the theaters, but we hope his part is not the backbone of the plot.
With movies like Akira, Force 2 and Naam Shabana, that day is not far when Bollywood will also attempt making Lara Croft-ish movies. It is about time we make the women in Bollywood kick ass, literally.
Apart from Taapsee, Naam Shabana also stars Prithviraj, Manoj Bajpayee. Danny Denzongpa, Anupam Kher and Akshay Kumar appear in a cameo, reprising their roles from Baby. The movie has been written by Neeraj Pandey and has been directed by Shivam Nair.
