Shivaay is an action thriller film that revolves around the story of an innocent Himalayan mountaineer (Ajay Devgn), who transforms into a mean destroyer to protect his family. Actor Ajay Devgn has written the story for the movie, while Sandeep Srivastava and Robin Bhatt have penned the screenplay.
Ajay Devgn, who has handled multiple roles like actor, director and producer, has chosen a superb story, which has hardly been explored in Bollywood in the past. Sandeep and Robin have penned a brilliant screenplay, which keeps viewers engaged and entertained throughout the movie, which is a bit lengthy and slow in parts, say the audience.
Ajay Devgn has played the lead role in Shivaay and has given his career’s best performance, which is award worthy. He stuns you with his nerve-racking action and stunts and makes you cry in emotional scenes. Sayyeshaa Saigal, Erika Kaar and Abigail Eames have done justice to their roles. Vir Das, Girish Karnad, Saurabh Shukla and Bijou Thaangjam are also among the big assets of the movie, say the viewers.
Shivaay, which is bankrolled by Ajay Devgn FFilms, has rich production values, which are on par with Hollywood standards. The film is a visual delight and takes you on a tours of many breathtaking locales. Mithoon’s soulful music, beautiful picturisation and brilliant choreography of action and stunts are the attractions on the technical front.

“Shivaay ” Movie Story Line | Ajay Devgan, Erika Kaar
Shivaay (Ajay Devgn) spends time guiding tourists on high-altitude treks when not proving his mountaineering skills atop snow-clad Himalayan peaks. On one of these treks, Shivaay falls in love with Olga (Erika Kaar). Olga speaks flawless Hindi, Shivaay speaks some English. The morning after Shivaay impresses Olga with his tattoos (yes, not kidding), the group is on the trek. They see an avalanche coming their way. Everyone crosses over to the opposite peak. While trying to save an extraordinarily scared person, Shivaay and Olga are unable to make it before the avalanche hits them (but of course!).
Now take a moment. And breathe. Because what happens next is so ludicrous that… So Shivaay and Olga jump into a nearby tent RIGHT before the avalanche tosses it off into the abyss in between the two peaks. No, they don’t die. Nor fall into the abyss and hurt themselves. The tent is seen hanging between the peaks… and the people inside realise that they have fallen in love, and go on to consummate their relationship. Kissing, making love, et al, right there, hanging in the air.
Olga has to go back to Bulgaria after her fling (read: falling TRULY-MADLY-DEEPLY in love) with Shivaay. Right before leaving for her country, Olga finds out that she is pregnant. She doesn’t want to have the child, but Shivaay wants his ‘adhi family’. So screw the woman’s decision; all hail Shivaay’s persuasion, and nine months later, bingo! The child is born. Olga goes back to Bulgaria and Shivaay climbs mountain peaks with his daughter Gaura (Abigail).
The rest of the story involves Ajay Devgn saving the children of Bulgaria from child trafficking, finding a sex worker’s lost father, fending off numerous goons single-handedly, being dragged through half of the country with barely a scratch on his jeans and what not.
The story of Shivaay has more meanders than the river Nile. It starts off in the Himalayas, reaches half the world away in Bulgaria. While the location shifts only a few thousand miles, events in the story are light years away from any sense or logic.
Ajay Devgn has played the lead role in Shivaay and has given his career’s best performance.He stuns you with his nerve-racking action.
The VFX looks believable and the story moves fast as his love interest Erika Kaar appears.The film is a visual delight and takes you on a tours of many breathtaking locales.
Beautiful picturisation and brilliant choreography of action and stunts
An overdose of action and an overdose of melodrama.
Shivaay ultimately suffers from the malice of overdose.
Ajay actor is present is almost every other scene.
Vir Das should stick to doing stand-up comedy rather than overacting in cameo appearances.
