Ajay Devgan’s Shivaay is basically Taken with a big helping of melodrama, and a lot of talking. A LOT of talking. Way too much talking.Frankly, that’s as much time it would take to watch Liam Neeson rescue his daughter in the first Taken, and then his wife in Taken 2 – those are both roughly 90-minute films. In the end, there’s little else to Shivaay than the eye-watering locations (both in the Himalayas and in Bulgaria), and occasionally poignant moments between Devgan and the little girl who plays his daughter. Everything else is noise. Way too much noise.I’m going with two out of five.

On the whole, Shivaay is a slow and often boring human drama with very limited emotional appeal and little entertainment value. It may find favour with the masses and single-screen cinema audiences but its run in the multiplexes will not be smooth at all. Given the high price at which it has been acquired by the distributors, it will entail heavy losses to them.

His wish to incessantly harp on the ‘father-daughter drama’ makes his action thriller dreary, an odd mishmash of multiple genres that leaves you exhausted.Boasting of great production values, we wish Ajay had invested in a better story as well.Overall, Ajay is unstoppable in Shivaay but you wish he wasn’t! Laced with visual excellence, you applaud his film’s larger than life canvas but despite the efforts, his second directorial venture fails to engage you.

Shivaay's kidnapped daughter, played by an adorable girl called Abigail Eames, is a mute child, which makes me believe that this film is, on some warped level, Devgn's version of Salman Khan's highly effective Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Except in the Devgnverse, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is replaced by Vir Das -- a decision that really tells you all you need to know about this film.

The Shivaay screenplay is predicated on a weak, arbitrary premise. The hero falls for a Bulgarian girl Olga (Polish actress Erika Kaar). But he is in no mood to accompany her to her homeland. "Shivaay Himalaya ke siva nahin jee sakta," he tells her rather airily. In fact, with Ajay Devgn not only acting but also directing, Shivaay is Singham (minus the khaki uniform) transported to Sofia and the Balkan mountains.

The Ajay Devgn movie drags on and on, making it a literal snooze fest after a certain point. And that is perhaps Shivaay’s biggest shortcoming.Ajay’s strength lies in his acting. Unfortunately, the same gets lost in the midst of some mindless action which starts playing itself on loop every time the bad guys appear. The stunts lack the finesse you would expect from an action-packed film and making matters worse is that they are badly choreographed, which take away the pleasure of watching Ajay perform some great moves while tackling the villains. Talking about villain, without letting the cat out, we have to say that this was the biggest let down.

SHIVAAY is an emotional action thriller that touches upon the relationship between a father and his daughter and the extent to which he goes for her.On the whole, SHIVAAY is a perfect emotional thriller that scores high on the account of its breathtaking visuals, amazing action and a high octane performance by Ajay Devgn. At the Box-Office, the extended weekend in the form of the festival holiday will prove to be bountiful for the film. Don’t miss this one.

The story of Shivaay has more meanders than the river Nile. It starts off in the Himalayas, reaches half the world away in Bulgaria. While the location shifts only a few thousand miles, events in the story are light years away from any sense or logic. Watch Shivaay if you have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE TO DO. Else watch a documentary on mountaineering. Or child trafficking. Or Bulgaria. Or whatever you want to. (Just a special mention for the company which made the tent that weathered pretty much everything.)

The plot being inspired from Taken, a lengthy run-time and an epic fail at making any emotional connect.Shivaay is an action drama that immense action but zero emotion. Strictly for Ajay Devgn fans because sitting through it for 2 hrs 40 min may be difficult for others. Shivaay seems high on never ending action and loud emotion. Visuals don’t fill the void of the missing storyline and hence a 2/5 for the film.

had Ajay decided to just act and blow us away with his action and emotional moments , Shivaay would be a different experience. The lengthy scenes and the second half that endlessly drags its feet are a true test of your patience. Shivaay could have easily been a shorter film with a more gripping narrative had the editing been a bit more stricter.Shivaay has spectacular action scenes, perhaps the best we have seen this year. Watch it for that and the emotional storyline of a father-daughter relationship.

  1. I'm watching first show on North country mall

  2. Shivaay Movie Review- Ajay Devgans Multi Crafstmanship Venture is def a One Time watch,without telling the story will say Great Picturesque for Eye,Positve points- Excellent Cinematography by Aseem bajaj esp of Himalaya & Bulgaria's beautiful scenery,High Octane Action by Tolga Degirmen,Ajays Acting,Negative Points- very Loose Editing by Dharmendra Sharma & slow screenplay by sandeep ,Slow & Weak Direction by Ajay,The Actress & baby girl Abigail Eames acting & their Hindi bcoz they are not native so thats fine but it certainly impacts the movie's intensity, Together its a Festive Watch & will make 95-100 Crore Bocz of Festival, Result- Semi Hit

  3. best of luck shivay ...specially ajay devgan .....nice effors as a director ....

  4. great movie with good story music acting.everything is fantastic

  5. I have just watched the film and it is a snooze fest to say the least. Ajay has spent way too much time with Rohit Shetty apparently, because this is a film that'd make him proud. Action is good and so are the backgrounds but it makes no sense for most part.You are better off watching Ae Dil Hai Mushkil where at least songs are good here songs are also average

  6. Wow what a high octane action and storyline. This movie will set a benchmark for bollywood when it comes to action, location, direction since its above and beyond compared to hollywood style.
    A must watch movie this Diwali!!! Super entertaining highly recommended!

  7. Maja aa gaya dekh ke. Mast movie hai yaar

  8. Hats off to ajay sir and the supporting cast.

    great movie with good story music acting.everything is fantastic.

    I am gonna watch this movie 2 times in theatre for the visual effects and Action sequences.

    Thank you ajay sir for the great diwali present.

  9. Hello,
    Just watched the movie.
    Well, first of all i would like to tell you that, this movie is not an emotoonal one rather it is a fully packed action thriller. So, avoid all the -ve reviews given above particularly Raja Sen, and Debarsi; bcz from the very beginning SHIVAAY is projected as an action thriller, so no point to review it as an emotional feature. Though, there are few emotional scenes but that was not what Ajay Devgan wanted to project in his dream movie.

    Now, its really enjoyable in many aspects like awesome locations, blood binding action scenes and cat mouse thriller.
    The 1st 1 hour is little stretched but in the second half, you will simply love it. Thrilling experience is really awesome. I am sure you will feel paisa vasool when you leave the Cinema hall.
    Go and enjoy it.

    Don't waste your money on some 90s love quadrant, that is the mix of two kkhh...

    We should inspire Ajay Devgan for his courage to make such a wonderful movie for Bollywood viewers. He has uplifted the standard of Bollywood.

    So, lets say SHIVAAAAYYYYY...

  10. Shivaay rocks , Fake reviews doesn't affect public response is Mindblowing ,outstanding just loved it ...!

  17. Great movie hai shivaay.... I would like to go with 4.5 stars.... MUST WATCH MOVIE

  18. All paki-devotees will surely go for ADHM. But from all angles, Shivaay scores much over and above ADHM.

  19. Shivaay is waste of time and was lengthy with stupid action sequences..story was ok..acting ajay sir did fantastic and others are all ok..2*..
    And ae dil hai muskhil is superb..same story but kjo makes it interesting.. in 2nd half bit slow..overall it's good 3*..

  20. It's awesome rating for Moveir is 4.5/5.

  21. good movie great action

  22. Shivaay movie its really unbeatable movie. As am into direction field I watch and am really very happy seeing it. He proved that Indian can make movie as like Hollywood movies. Everyone must watch this movie.Its a 5star movie.

  24. शिवाय:
    एक्शन आहा, इमोशन स्वाहा! [1.5/5]

    ‘शिवाय’ में अजय देवगन एक ऐसे पिता बने हैं, जो अपनी बेटी के लिए कुछ भी कर सकता है. पहाड़ों से छलांग लगा सकता है. बुल्गारिया की पुलिस फ़ोर्स और रशियन माफिया से अकेले लड़ सकता है. मौत को भी पीछे छोड़ सकता है. इस पिता के प्यार पर अनुष्का (सायेशा सहगल, सुमीत सहगल की बेटी) इतनी फ़िदा है कि अजय के किरदार में अपने पिता को देखने लगती है, हालाँकि वो शिवाय में अपने पति को तलाश रही है. फिल्म के सबसे आख़िरी और जरूरी पलों में अनुष्का शिवाय के सामने है, “जिन लड़कियों को अच्छे पिता मिलते हैं. उनके लिए अच्छे लड़कों की तलाश लम्बी हो जाती है. ऐसा नहीं है कि लड़के मिलते नहीं, पर उन्हें तलाश किसी और की होती है.” इस पूरे वाहियात वाकिये का फिल्म के किसी इमोशन से कुछ लेना देना नहीं है, शायद इसीलिए अनुष्का आखिर में बात साफ़ भी कर देती है, “मुझे खुद नहीं पता, मैं क्या कह रही हूँ?” फिल्म का सबसे ईमानदार पल है ये. वाकई में किसी को कुछ भी पता नहीं, क्या हो रहा है? क्यूँ हो रहा है? जो हो रहा है, बस हो रहा है.

    हाथ में चिलम पकड़े शिवाय (अजय देवगन) नंगे बदन बर्फ पर लेटा है. सैलानियों को बर्फीली चोटियों की सैर कराना काम है उसका. रोब-रुआब ऐसा, जैसे पूरा हिमालय उसी का है. खुद को भगवान् शिव से कम नहीं समझता. एक सैलानी जब पूछती है, “सिर्फ नाम ही है, या शिव जैसा और भी कुछ है?”, वो एक के बाद एक अपने बदन के सारे टैटू दिखाने लगता है. सैलानी बुल्गारिया की है. दोनों में प्यार होने की खानापूर्ति बर्फ़ खिसकने की एक दुर्घटना के बाद होती है. वोल्गा (एरिका कार) प्रेग्नेंट है, पर उसे बच्चा नहीं चाहिए. उसे बुल्गारिया लौटना है. शिवाय उसे जिस अंदाज़ में डिलीवरी तक रुकने और बच्चा दे कर जाने को कहता है, वो बहुत खौफनाक लगता है. वोल्गा जा चुकी है. गौरा (अबीगेल ईम्स) अपने पिता शिवाय के पास ही रहती है. घटनाएं तब करवट लेती हैं, जब गौरा को माँ के बारे में पता चलता है और वो बुल्गारिया जाने की जिद कर बैठती है.

    गौरा बोल नहीं सकती, मुझे नहीं पता उसका बोल न पाना उसके किरदार को किस तरह प्रभावित करता है? ‘बजरंगी भाईजान’ में मुन्नी बोल नहीं सकती, इसलिए अपने बारे में ज्यादा कुछ बता नहीं सकती. यहाँ कहानी में इस तरह की कोई बंदिश नहीं है. वजह सिर्फ दो ही हो सकती हैं, एक तो क्यूंकि अबीगेल विदेशी हैं, उनकी हिंदी शायद इतनी अच्छी न हो, पर ऐसा होता तो कटरीना कैफ हर फिल्म में गूंगी ही होतीं. बची दूसरी वजह, दर्शकों को इमोशनली जोड़े रखने के लिये. 3 घंटे 50 मिनट में आखिर हर हथकंडा तो अपनाना ही है.

    फिल्म में एक्शन देखने लायक है. बर्फीली चोटियों पर ट्रैकिंग के शॉट्स, बर्फ खिसकने का रोमांच और लम्बे-लम्बे ‘चेजिंग सीक्वेंस’! जिस जिस को भी हिंदी फिल्मों के एक्शन में ‘गुरुत्वाकर्षण’ के नियम की अनदेखी दिखती है, उनका इस फिल्म में पूरा ख्याल रखा गया है. यहाँ अजय गुंडों को मार कर हवा में तैराते नज़र नहीं आते, बल्कि यहाँ सब कुछ नीचे की ओर ही गिरता दिखाई देता है, किरदारों से लेकर कहानी में लॉजिक के इस्तेमाल तक. पहाड़ियों से छलांग लगाने में शिवाय को कोई झिझक या झंझट महसूस नहीं होती. वो कूदता है, गिरता चला जाता है, बीच-बीच में कलाबाजियां भी खा लेता है और नीचे पहुँचते पहुँचते खुद को संभाल भी लेता है. एक दृश्य में तो हेलीकाप्टर से गोलियों की बारिश हो रही है और शिवाय अपनी बेटी के साथ खुली सड़क पर आराम से भागा जा रहा है. चिलम की जरूरत अब हमें है.

    अजय देवगन गंभीर अभिनेता माने जाते हैं. अपनी आँखों से ही वो काफी कुछ कर और कह जाते हैं. इस बार भी उनकी आँखें पूरी स्क्रीन पर कई बार ‘टाइट क्लोज-अप’ में खुलती-बंद होती हैं. एक बार तो उनकी आँखों का इस्तेमाल ‘INTERMISSION’ में ‘I’ की जगह पे भी हो जाता है, पर काश इतने से ही काम चल जाता! हाँ, एक्शन में वो पूरी जान लड़ा देते हैं. एरिका और सायेशा दोनों अपने-अपने तरीके से आपको कुढ़ने-चिढ़ने पर मजबूर करती रहती हैं. मुझे पता है, बच्चों को हमेशा ‘क्यूट और स्वीट’ कहना चाहिए, चाहे वो कितने भी बद्तमीज़ और आक्रामक क्यूँ न हो. अबीगेल परदे पर ‘‘क्यूट और स्वीट’ ही लगती हैं. उनका बोल न पाना उनके लगातार चिल्लाने का बहाना बन जाता है. सायेशा अपने पिता के नक्शेकदम पर ही हैं. सिर्फ डायलाग बोल देना, दो लाइनों के बीच एक ‘पॉज’ दे देना और काम ख़तम!

    अंत में, ‘शिवाय’ आपके पैसे की बर्बादी नहीं है. आपका तो कुछ भी नहीं गया. बड़ा सोचिये, पॉजिटिव सोचिये. 120 करोड़ के साथ खिलवाड़ होते देखना भी अपने आप में कोई कम मजेदार खेल नहीं है. 300 रूपये खर्च कर के 4 घंटे ‘वातानुकूलित’ मल्टीप्लेक्स में बिताना भी किसी किसी के लिये फायदे का सौदा हो सकता है. [1.5.5]

    1. Gaurav's 2hrs 50 minutes long movie not 3 hrs 50 minutes. It seems you slept for 1 hour in between :)

    2. Thank you for correcting, bhai!

    3. Gaurav...vir das ka kya roll hai..?...its just like navaj in bajrangi...?

  25. Ajay Sir great movie sir thanks for the diwali present

  26. gaurav rai is the biggest stupid idiot as jercho would say.

    he doesn't know about anything and give his opinion on movies.

    He gave ae dil hai "vulgar" 3.5 stars. that movie was total crap worst movie from bollywood. kjo also paid him that's why he gave 3.5 stars.

    I've seen ae dil hai "vulgar" movie. I couldn't stand for 1 minute.

    He gave shivay 1.5 stars. it is a very good movie.

  27. It's very lovely
    Best dialogue "jinhe achhe pita milte haen unki talash lambi ho jati hae.
    Aesa nahi hae ki unhe aese ladke nahi milte par unhe kahin aor jana hota hae.

  28. This shows that how some paid medias are there and how the taste of all these critics are pathetic.If we ask all these critics who have given their negative reviews to make a movie together they will fail for sure.SHIVAAY is OUTSTANDING and ADHM seems good but last 15 minutes of the movie disappointed me and my friends..Please media don't do this. AJAY Rockksss and haters Shoccckkkeddd...

  29. For Shivaay I can only say one thing: lengthy. Mr. Ajay Devgn has choose an okay subject but he has done mistakes! One he has not executed it well and also it would have cut short by 40-50 mins then it would've been a good movie! I mean a climax of around 30-35 minutes is too much when we know that what's gonna happen! There are many scenes which could've been avoided and some scenes are too lengthy and stretched! What I found good was it's cinematography ! The way the Himalayan proportions are captured are superlative! Acting is good by all the cast! But a strong character of villain was needed! So overall an average movie! The editor must be blamed. Music is also not up to the mark! Only Darkhast is good! 2/5. Feeling sad for this movie as it is a dream project of Ajay Devgn. 😔

  30. Good movie and already got hit.. I don't know vr is the need or critics review .watch movie himself and decide .. it good from my side and hit also...aj tak kisi movie ko acha khte nhi suna kisi b reviewer ko

  31. Shivaay is the Best movie in this month it want's the filmfare award

  32. Shivaay is better than ae dil hai mushkil

  33. It is very best movie must see everyone.mindblowing acting done by ajay as his every film.i like it so much.


  35. Raja Sen to teeno Khan ki movie ka Achha review dega h bus
