Ajay Devgn starrer Shivaay trailer has finally released after much anticipation. Shivaay is a Himalayan mountaineer who is an innocent everyman and yet is capable of the transformer into a mean destroyer when he needs to protect his family.
Ajay shared the trailer on his Twitter account with caption: ना आदि ना अंत है उसका, वो सबका ना इनका उनका, वही शून्य है वही इकाय, जिसके भीतर बसा शिवाय। Watch #ShivaayTrailer (It doesn’t have a beginning and it doesn’t have an end, it doesn’t belong to anybody. It is emptiness and it is everything that has Shivaay nesting in it).
Ajay emerges as the main force in the entire trailer. His narrative praising Lord Shiva and his expressions seem to match step by step. Ajay is quintessentially intense in most scenes. But there are also snatches of distraught, brooding expressions that Ajay carries off well. Ajay’s monologue about Shiva has seeped into almost every frame of the trailer. The use of allusions to Shiva while exploring his various aspects is interesting and intriguing. It will be interesting to see how the movie connects the different layers of Lord Shiva to that of a common man. As Ajay said, “There is no beginning and no end. He is indivisible, equally to all. He is nothing yet everything. Shiva is in all of us,” in his deep baritone, every scene seems to come alive on screen.
The trailer doesn’t give away much but seems to be a story about a man with a mission and how he goes about facing challenges in the face of circumstances. Ajay’s scenes with child actor Abigail Eames also seem to be a common thread all along the trailer. And it also seems to the only real bond between two people in the trailer. We can’t see much of both female leads, Erika Kaar and Sayyeshaa Saigal in the trailer.
The cinematography of the trailer stands out. The whole trailer shifts between a swanky town and a long range of mountains. The scenes of snow-clad mountains and glaciers are simply breathtaking. At times, we are even reminded of the ‘wall’ and ‘winters’ from Game of Thrones.
Other supporting cast seem to just linger in the background. All in all, the trailer is filled with some fascinating action sequences, suspense, and drama. And leaves one anticipating to watch the movie. Shivaay will have a worldwide release on October 28th this year on Diwali.
