Ratings:2/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN News18

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.
