Shivaay is meant to be larger than life, and a completely different experience than many other Bollywood adventure films have been able to offer.
The problem lies with a story that I don't quite understand. Ajay Devgn employs the hero-esque role and takes everyone to mountains and cliffs and icy areas in Bulgaria. And I still just don't get it.
I think the problem lies in the overzealous production value Ajay Devgn insisted in putting into his film. His directorial venture falls short because of its ability to engage us in the core. In an effort to surpass all expectations, Ajay Devgn has not met any expectations. Don't get me wrong - the locales are beautiful, the cinematography is top-notch. But that's where the positives end. The film offers little in terms of any engaging plot, and fails to even reach a comprehension level that the most non-Bollywood filmmgoer would understand.
I wish I could delve into the story more but I'm not sure I can outline the story in any way that would make sense - because it didn't make sense to me. The film drags on for far too long to try to make sense but it fails. No good actors can salvage this film.
This one has to be skipped.
