Ajay Devgn’s most ambitious project Shivaay is in theatres now. Directed and produced by Ajay Devgn himself, the movie stars Erika Kaar, Sayyeshha Saigal and Vir Das. The reviews are out and it seems that Ajay Devgn has once again failed as a director. Critics don’t seem to be impressed with Ajay Devgn’s film. We have received five reviews till now and most of then have been negative. Let’s read how the critics have rated and reviewed Shivaay. (Read: Shivaay Box Office Precision)
Shivaay Review By Sonup from Indian Express: The Ajay Devgn movie drags on and on, making it a literal snooze fest after a certain point. And that is perhaps Shivaay’s biggest shortcoming. Ajay’s strength lies in his acting. Unfortunately, the same gets lost in the midst of some mindless action which starts playing itself on loop every time the bad guys appear.

Shivaay Review By Bollywood Hungama: SHIVAAY is an emotional action thriller that touches upon the relationship between a father and his daughter and the extent to which he goes for her.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.
Rating: 3.5 stars

Shivaay Review By Devarsi from India Today: 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. 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.
Rating: 1.5 stars

Shivaay Review By Surabhi Redkar from Koimoi: The plot being inspired from Taken, a lengthy run-time and an epic fail at making any emotional connect. 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 and hence a 2/5 for the film.

Shivaay Review By Tushar Joshi from Bollywood Life: Shivaay has spectacular action scenes, perhaps the best we have seen this year. Watch it for that and the emotional storyline of a father-daughter relationship.
