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.

    Ok Jaanu Movie Review

    The film starts on a fresh note however the Bollywood audience witnessed many similar films in the past. It is the performances which make the film going and the songs are completely melodious and have presented well on screen. The interval episodes make the film interesting however the entire first half of Ok Jaanu is completely predictable. The second half of Ok Jaanu dips down badly after a convincing and interesting first half. The movie turns emotional and the dose of sentiment leave the audience irritated. The pace slows down as time proceeds and the pre-climax episodes spoil the entire film’s flavour. The climax of Ok Jaanu has been positive however the second half of Ok Jaanu is a huge disappointment.

    Dangal Movie Review

    Dangal is completely about wrestling and the first half of the film looks entertaining and gripping. Though the pace of the film has been slow, the performances and the power-packed performances of the lead actors take the film to the next level completely. The first half of Dangal takes over the family emotions and it takes ample time to get you indulged into the film’s plot. The interval episodes make Dangal a masterpiece.A sports biopic will sure be predictable and Dangal is not an exception at all. However the second half is all about the journey of Mahavir’s daughters how they work hard and end up at the International level makes the film. The climax and the emotional content strike a chord completely and are the major highlights of the film. On the whole Dangal is a must watch film because of the gripping narration and the power-packed performances.

    Wajah Tum Ho Movie Review

    The first half of Wajah Tum Ho offers nothing much except the same old, routine and predictable narration that we have seen in many crime romantic thrillers. The plot has nothing new to reveal however the director tried to bluff the audience as if the film has interesting twirls. The songs have been decent however the romantic episodes too looked fake. The interval episodes look completely unusual and on the whole the first half of Wajah Tum Ho offers nothing. After such a disappointing first half, the audience expected less obviously however the film dips down even further during the second half. Even the songs fail to impress the audience and the female leads irritate the audience with their glamorous acts. The special songs test the patience of the audience and the climax has been shot in a hurry. On the whole the second half of Wajah Tum Ho too offers nothing.

    Befikre Movie Review

    Aditya Chopra’s 'Befikre', created a stir with sizzling trailer. The film is all about the modern day relationships and how individuals today are lost in translation of concepts such as commitment, acceptance and the ultimate leap of faith that love is. The first half of the film is light-hearted. It moves through Dharam and Shyra’s past and present relationship.  The second half slips too much in terms of logic. The story drags towards the climax.

    Kahaani 2 Movie Review

    Kahaani 2 is nothing less when it is compared to the first instalment. The story has been well blended and the entire first half of the film is a sure shot classic. One cannot predict any episode from the film and the entire first half of Kahaani 2 is completely intriguing. The technical aspects elevate the film well and one will sure get impressed for the content throughout the first half. After an exceptional first half, one expects a gripping and stupendous second half which did not happen. However the film lives up the expectations. Some of the episodes have been loosely adopted and some are left unnatural. The pre-climax episodes bring back the needed interest and the climax has been showcased well. On the whole the second half of Kahaani 2 fall short but is sure not a disappointment.

    Dear Zindagi Movie Review

    The first half of Dear Zindagi rarely has something to express and it looks completely clitched. The screenplay has been hammered enough that it makes no difference. The entire first half has been wasted without revealing anything to the audience. Some of the episodes impress the audience but they make no impact on the whole. The visuals have been fresh and the interval episodes looked simple. On the whole the first half of Dear Zindagi is a disappointment.The second half of Dear Zindagi has been decent however it tests the patience of the audience. Some of the episodes have been dragged without any need. Once again the songs looked decent and the cinematography is the major highlight of the film. With many unusual episodes, Dear Zindagi looks slammed on the whole and the second half has been better but it too falls short of the expectations.
