Story

Shivaay is the story of a dare devil mountaineer Shivaay (Ajay Devgn) and during a trek, Shivaay falls in love with a Bulgarian tourist Olga (Erika Kaar) after which the duo turn intimate. The result is a baby which Olga refuses to raise and returns back to Bulgaria. Shivaay names the child Guara (Abigail Eames) and after nine years, she comes to know that her mom is alive. Shivaay and Gaura flies to Bulgaria after which the real danger knocks them. The rest of Shivaay is all about how they fight against and locate Olga. Watch the film to know about the rest.

The first half of Shivaay has been dead slow and it tests the patience of the audience completely. The slow pace kills the film’s flavour despite of the grand visuals throughout. The film has been shot in beautiful locales and is made on a lavish budget. However the emotional drama has been quite poor and some of the episodes look completely unusual. On the whole with an interesting interval bang, the first half of Shivaay has its moments but it is a disappointment for sure.

The second half of the movie has enough dose of action episodes and VFX effects which have been perfectly blended on screen. However the movie lacks the needed soul for the audience to get emotionally connected. This kills the complete flavour of the film and most of the episodes have been dragged much. The climax looks too lengthy and without many interesting episodes, the second half of Shivaay is strictly for Ajay Devgn’s fans.

Performance :

Ajay Devgn drags out his best as Shivaay and he has been stupendous on screen. Thoroughly energetic he strikes a chord with his performance in the film. Erika Kaar has been apt for her role as a Bulgarian and she has been impressive all over. Sayesha Saigal has been smart and decent in her role. Abigail Eames has been decent in her role and carried her role with ease. Vir Das has been wasted and Girish Karnad’s role has been completely old fashioned. All the other actors delivered out their best for the film.

The story of the film lacked enough depth though it has been interesting. The screenplay and the dialogues lacked emotional feel and flavour. The cinematography made the film vast and lavish throughout. The music and the background score have been apt completely. The production values looked lavish and Ajay Devgn fails to strike the emotional chord as a director.

Final Word

Shivaay has some stupendous visuals throughout but the film lacks an interesting narration. Ajay Devgn’s stunning show and the VFX effects are the only saviours.

    Golmaal Again Movie Review

    Golmaal Again has been focussed mostly on entertainment which has been laced with horrifying episodes. The film is not a comedy unlike the previous installments of Golmaal and is laced with loads of horror. The songs have been shot well and the first half of Golmaal Again looks decent with enough dose of entertainment. The second half of Golmaal Again dips down though it has dose of entertainment. Some of the episodes have been repeated and have been taken from the previous installments. Some of the episodes fail to make any impact however the climax of the film has been thoroughly engaging. On the whole, the second half of Golmaal Again is a disappoinment but manages to sail finally.

    Secret Superstar Movie Review

    Secret Superstar starts on an interesting note and it explains all the small and interesting aspects of the lead characters. Before execution, Secret Superstar has been penned well and is perfectly presented on screen. The performances along with the background score and the way the film has been executed will blow everyone away. The entire first half frames up the film beautifully and makes a strong impact across the audience. The second half has been exceptional right from the first frame and is a treat to watch. Aamir Khan will be seen in an extended cameo and Zaira Wasim tops the show with her flawless and stupendous performance. The pre-climax episodes elevate the film and the climax has been hard hitting. Secret Superstar has a beautiful second half which conveys a strong message for every Indian.

    Judwaa 2 Movie Review

    Judwaa 2 has been promising and entertaining right from the first frame. Varun Dhawan carried the entire film on his shoulders and he is a treat to watch. He excelled completely in the comic scenes and Judwaa 2 is his best film till date. Though the plot has been completely predictable, it is the entertainment, action and the songs which leave the audience entertaining. The first half of Judwaa 2 has been decent and lives up the expectations. The second half of Judwaa 2 too stands decent because of the entertainment levels. All the characters have been recreated from the original and not much homework has been done. The makers have been completely focused on the entertainment and the glamour. The songs have been shot well and they come at the right time in the film. The climax has been quite appealing and on the whole the second half too is a passable ride completely.
