    Naam Shabana Music Review

    Despite being a song-less film, ‘Baby’ (2015) had a fairly good album consisting of four tracks. ‘Naam Shabana’, a prequel to the aforementioned film, traces the journey of Shabana Khan (Taapsee Pannu) as circumstances force her to take up joining a crime fighting unit.

Oh My God’ (with […] More
