Awesome..... :D
28 October 2016 | by pradipta-115-192840See all my reviews

Hollywood style action. What's Good: Just like the trailer, the locations and cinematography of Shivaay are completely breathtaking.

What's Bad: The plot being inspired from Taken, a lengthy run-time and an epic fail at making any emotional connect.

Loo Break: Needed most in the stretched climax & Ajay-Erika's awkward love-making scene!

Watch or Not?: 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 is an Ajay Devgn show all the way. He is literally there in every frame of the film. Although, he rarely gets a chance to show off his acting chops in the midst of all the action. While he seems better in the second half, his act in the love story seems a little childish.

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.
