Okay let’s get straight to the point — Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay doesn’t stand up to the expectations it had built through its fantastically cut trailer. However, the film does have a few moments that are worth your penny.
Here’s what appealed to us in this out and out action thriller, directed by Ajay Devgn.
When it’s an Ajay Devgn film you are bound to be treated to some kickass action sequences, after all, action is this man’s forte. He has set a benchmark for himself ever since he made an incredible entry standing atop two bikes in his debut film – Phool Aur Kaante. So when it’s a film starring him and directed by him, action has to be in abundance. Shivaay is packed with high-octane, jaw-dropping action sequences. So if you are an action-thriller addict, Shivaay should be your go-to film this weekend. The car chase scene, though a tad long, is so far the best car-chase sequence one has seen on Indian screen.
Another strength of Shivaay is its VFX. The visual effects are pretty decent giving the film a very Hollywood-ish feel. NY VFXWAllA deserves a pat on their back for a job well-done.
The Father-Daughter Relationship
While the film may pass off as an action-thriller, at the core, it’s a film that explores the beautiful relationship between a father and his daughter. There are plenty of moments between Shivaay (Ajay Devgn) and his daughter Gaura (Abigail Eames) that pluck at your heartstrings and the song ‘Tera Naal Ishqa’ wonderfully captures the father-daughter bond. Ajay and Abigail are simply adorable.
After watching this film, one thing that you would really want to do is either go for a trek to the majestic snow-clad Himalayas or pack your bags and head to Bulgaria. The locations captured in Shivaay are completely breathtaking.
While he is an action star, one can’t even refute the fact that Ajay Devgn is a fine actor. And in the midst of all the action, you also see the actor deliver a memorable performance. The angst, the anger, the love — Ajay has done justice to every emotion of his character. Whether you are an Ajay Devgn fan or not, you cannot not like the man in this film.
