Critic Reviews Shivaay

  • Times of India | Review By -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-6/10
Overall, Ajay is unstoppable in Shivaay but you wish he wasn’t! Laced with visual excellence, you applaud his film’s larger than life canvas but despite the efforts, his second directorial venture fails to engage you emotionally.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-4/10
What Ajay Devgan the star deserved, was a sharper director and a better script. In the end, there’s little else to Shivaay than the eye-watering locations (both in the Himalayas and in Bulgaria), and occasionally poignant moments between Devgan and the little girl who plays his daughter. Everything else is noise. Way too much noise.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4/10
Visually, there is much going for this film, especially with cinematographer Aseem Bajaj making the most of the striking Balkan canvas and painting breathtakingly pretty pictures on it. But Shivaay is a misfire of Himalayan proportions.

  • Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-2/10
Devgn might believe Shivaay is a piece of Shiv, but there's an obvious typo there. To evoke a truly superb avalanche-filled film, this one may as well have been called Force Manure.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-5/10
The ingredients are there, but loose ends restrict Shivaay from becoming a smooth ride. Devgn’s stunts are a treat to watch, but that’s about it. Shivaay treks trough high altitudes, but the film keeps waiting for him to return to the valley with a string attached to his legs.

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-4/10
One can predict the knocks and punches and dives and VFX-aided saves without as much as batting an eyelid. Although I liked that one long take chase around the police headquarters, at best Shivaay is a terrific looking terrible film.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-4/10
You just have to be the world’s biggest Ajay Devgn fan to keep your eyes peeled over 2 hours, 50 minutes, on him, all through a film. Given Mista D has been around for two-and-half decades on the big screen, I’m sure such fans are one too many.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Sonup Sahadevan Rating-4/10
The stunts lack the finesse you would expect from an action-packed film and making matters worse is that they are badly choreographed, which take away the pleasure of watching Ajay perform some great moves while tackling the villains.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-4/10
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 seems high on never ending action and loud emotion. Visuals don’t fill the void of the missing storyline.

  • India Today | Review By -Ananya Bhattacharya Rating-3/10
Watch Shivaay if you have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE TO DO. Else watch a documentary on mountaineering. Or child trafficking. Or Bulgaria. Or whatever you want to. (Just a special mention for the company which made the tent that weathered pretty much everything.)

  • Filmfare | Review By -Rachit Gupta Rating-5/10
It offers an action film experience at par with western standards. It wants to be a genuinely intelligent action movie. But its affinity to be overtly emotional gets the better of it. With  crisper editing and less melodrama, Shivaay could’ve been the best of the year. But the ‘more is less’ approach just doesn’t work out.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-6/10
The lengthy scenes and the second half that endlessly drags its feet are a true test of your patience. Shivaay could have easily been a shorter film with a more gripping narrative had the editing been a bit more stricter.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Review Rating-7/10
The film’s cinematography by Aseem Bajaj is simply outstanding. Full marks to him for making SHIVAAY look so grand and beautiful, surely making it a big screen experience. 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.
