While Ajay Devgn might not be in two minds for releasing his film with Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, it might just turn out to be a bad decision. Shivaay, to state the least is the definition of OTT (Over the top, for all you know).
The film establishes with a shot of Devgan lying bare chest atop a mountain and after that, the next 172 minutes are absolutely an over dose of Ajay. Though the man does justice with his razor sharp acting chops, the film is a mountain of torture in itself.
What could have been an absolutely mind flocking cinema’s epitome turns out to be a dull monotonous show.
Shivaay is about a father-daughter, who reach Bulgaria to meet the separated mother but get embroiled in the tangles of prostitution. What follows is worth avoiding.
The debutant Erika Kaar is a misfit as much as her heavily English clad Hindi dialogues. The music is a disappointment and only the visuals and cinematography can keep you hooked to the seat but just for a while.
Ajay is in his finesse but there comes a time when you want the screen to be fresher than that.
The Shivaay angle, the constructor and destroyer angle is tried to brought out but in the endlessly dragging emotional overture, you’re lost. All in all, this is trek you better avoid !
