Shivaay - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Action for the sake of action. Story that wavers in its focus. And long, way too long.

The visuals, the action all look super cool indeed. Nicely balances off the romance promised in the other Diwali release, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Other than these special effects and action sequences though, Shivaay's trailer barely holds a hook.

Sure, there is Ajay Devgn's intense look. But, the story looks just too ancillary to leave an impact. The little girl angle is too similar to that seen in Sultan and Rocky Handsome. It almost feels like since all “stars” are done with the police-officer-against-system theme, it is time now to take turns to do the child-as-companion one.

I think the only way to enjoy this one would be to go only and only for the action and make the most of it. Well, at least that's what I am going to do.

Firstpost - "isn't cohesive, and apart from some catchy parts in the songs here and there, you probably won't remember this one once Diwali has gone by."
koimoi - "3/5"
Milliblog - "Middling, barely functional soundtrack."
