Storyline

Sangli-based Shiva Kumar re-locates to Mumbai to live with his brother, Daksh; Bhabi, Manasi; and their son. He gets recruited as a Sub-Inspector with Mumbai Police, and Manasi hopes that he will accept Haftas like other police officers so that they can improve their standard of living. Instead, Shiva befriends a rebel journalist from Daily News Analysis (D.N.A.), Sandhya Joshi, who is determined to expose the nexus between the police and the underworld; and incurs the wrath of his superiors as well as a former underworld don, Bappu, who is now an influential politician. After apprehending a vicious killer, Kutney, from Malaysia, Shiva is summoned by Home Minister, Manohar Shirke - and it is this meeting that will alter Shiva's life forever.

Very good movie.
17 December 2006 | by (Copenhagen , Denmark) – See all my reviews

One thing I have learned is not to believe the critics and judge a movie just by reading there Reviews.

Shiva is surprisingly a very good movie with good action and a very good story. The story has been seen in many movies before: A cop coming to a town which is ruled by gangsters and the head is a minister, but they way RGV has directed the movie and told the story is brilliant.

I have never doubted that the Main Actor in this movie has very good potential in being a Big Actor one day, he has got the looks and most of all his acting is very good. This is his second movie after James where he did a great job as well, and lifted the entire movie on his shoulder. The actress is OK but she still needs to take some acting classes if she want to stick in Bollywood.

Overall it is a very good movie, and don't judge the movie before you have seen it, I have and I loved it..:)
