Shivaay ( Ajay Devgn) is a mountaineer who conducts treks in the Himalayas. On one of his tours, he meets Olga (Erika Kaar) who hails from Bulgaria. After he saves her life in a deadly avalanche, the duo fall in love.

Olga becomes pregnant and is not willing to give birth to a child but on Shivaay’s insistence, she agrees to deliver the child but refuses to raise it with him and leaves to Bulgaria.

Nine years later,Shivaay is happy living with his daughter Gaura (Abigail Eames). After learning that her mother is alive, Gaura forces Shivaay to take her to Bulgaria to meet Olga.

During their visit, Gaura gets kidnapped by a child trafficking gang and thus begins Shivaay’s cat and mouse chase with the kidnappers.

Will he be able to save Gaura? How far will a father to go for the safety of his daughter?

 

PERFORMANCE :

Ajay Devgn has put his heart and soul as a director in SHIVAAY, which is pretty much evident in every frame of the film. Ajay Devgn comes out with flying colours as a director of SHIVAAY. He has successfully managed to package the product named ‘SHIVAAY’ in the right manner so as to suit the taste of the cinegoers.

Erika Kaar could have rather spoken in English than the awkward Hindi that we are subjected to.

Sayyesha’s role is too small and I’m not sure if Shivaay is the best choice for her debut. She does not get noticed in this role.

Abigail Eames does a good job at emoting stuff since her character is speech impaired.

Girish Karnad and Vir Das are extremely unnecessary characters in the film.

The film’s cinematography by Aseem Bajaj is simply outstanding. Even though the music (Mithoon) of SHIVAAY is not impressive (title track notwithstanding),

 

POSITIVE : 

locations

cinematography of Shivaay

Actions scene 

 

NEGATIVE : 

lengthy run-time

Fail to emotional connect 

 

FINAL VERDICT : 

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. Prepare for action and stunts like never before....
