Shivaay - Top Reviews

Not a shred of originality in this father-daughter copy of 'Taken' plus 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', unless you are fascinated by snow, tattoos, and foreign locales where really bad foreign people live. Ajay Devgn, has a huge fan following as an action hero does not disappoint, but the CGI finishing does. And you begin hating Kailash Kher singing annoyingly in the background during emotional scenes and the title song playing ad nauseam during the action scenes.

This Ajay Devgn video game gets more unwatchable with each minute -- and there are 173 of them,'

Stellar action, tepid drama

Ajay Devgn's Film is a Misfire of Himalayan Proportions
Ajay's never-ending saga is high on action but lacks soul

Devgn’s directorial venture Shivaay is ambitious to a fault. Almost every single scene of its foolish script is designed to showcase his bravado and appeal at the expense of content and coherence
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
Watching Ajay Devgn’s brainless actioner is like watching a turd drop. For three hours. In slow-motion.

Ajay Devgn's Film is a Misfire of Himalayan Proportions
Absolutely nothing happens. Besides Devgn, who we know is happening anyway. So you sit back and enjoy Shivaay. Just please don’t ask why!

This is the best Diwali gift for the audience and never miss to watch it. This is the best action movie of all time in India as a level of Hollywood. This movie is worth of every single penny, so better book your ticket now.

The music of Shivaay is largely situational, though 'Darkhaast' is the one that will definitely play on much beyond the film's run in theatres

Overall, the title, which resonates with magnetic appeal lacks conviction.
This is Ajay Devgn’s show all the way

Shivaay' is extremely high on action quotient and very low on its drama and screenplay level.

Box Office Capsule
On the whole, 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. At the Box-Office, the extended weekend in the form of the festival holiday will prove to be bountiful for the film. Don’t miss this one.
