Shivaay, directed by Ajay Devgn and starring the star in the lead role, is in theatres today.
Story of the movie:
The story of Shivaay revolves around an innocent Himalayan mountaineer Ajay Devgn (Shivaay), who falls in love with Olga (Erika Kaar). Olga has to go back to Bulgaria after her fling (read: falling TRULY-MADLY-DEEPLY in love) with Shivaay. Right before leaving for her country, Olga finds out that she is pregnant. She doesn’t want to have the child, but Shivaay wants his ‘adhi family’. So screw the woman’s decision; all hail Shivaay’s persuasion, and nine months later, bingo! The child is born. Olga goes back to Bulgaria and Shivaay climbs mountain peaks with his daughter Gaura (Abigail).
One not-so-fine day, Gaura discovers that her mother is alive and in Bulgaria, as opposed to Shivaay’s story that she is dead. The rest of the story involves Ajay Devgn saving the children of Bulgaria from child trafficking.
Script of the film:
Sandeep and Robin have penned a brilliant screenplay, which keeps viewers engaged and entertained throughout the movie, which is a bit lengthy and slow in parts.
How the film’s Direction:
The film’s direction is superb. The film is quite rich in terms of visual. The stunning cinematography captures the mountains like no Hindi film has managed so far.Is the best camera work in the film. The film is a visual delight and takes you on a tours of many breathtaking locales.
Ajay Devgn: Ajay Devgn has played the lead role in Shivaay and has given his career’s best performance, which is award worthy. He stuns you with his nerve-racking action and stunts and makes you cry in emotional scenes.
Sayyeshaa Saigal, Erika Kaar and Abigail Eames have done justice to their roles. Vir Das, Girish Karnad, Saurabh Shukla and Bijou Thaangjam are also among the big assets of the movie.
Music of the film: The film’s music is amazing. Mithoon’s soulful music, beautiful picturisation and brilliant choreography of action and stunts are the attractions on the technical front.
What’s Good: “Shivaay“, which is bankrolled by Ajay Devgn FFilms, has rich production values, which are on par with Hollywood standards. The one aspect Shivaay wins in is the locations and the way they have been captured on camera.
What’s Bad: And that’s where the problem lies. Devgn employs all his too-familiar tricks (slo-mo walk, slit eyes, scything arms and legs) from his one man army south remakes, and makes us forget that he is trying for a character. However, the film has its issues, biggest being its run-time (3 hours) and thus, poor editing.
Watch or Not: If you are an Ajay Devgn fan, shut this tab right now and go watch “Shivaay” right now.
