If Greg House believed ‘everybody lies’, Sakar Raut, the director of 'Shivya', believes ‘everybody abuses’. Not that there’s any comparison between the two (House is far better, obviously), but why else would someone use ‘Ti dete, to deto, saglech detat…. Shivya!’ as a tagline for their film?
True to its name, the film has ample number of cuss words, which also explains the ‘A’ certification. There’s no harm in using a cuss word in a film when there’s a need for it, but here, abusive language is used just for the heck of it. It gets so freaking (see, how we avoided the ‘F’ word there) annoying that you can’t help but pity the actors mouthing the words. Yes, Shivya has a good thought at heart. It brings to focus how abusive language can land you in trouble and turn your life upside-down. But all that after giving a crash-course in cuss words.
Our protagonist Raghav (Bhushan Pradhan) is a hot-headed youngster who is ready to blurt out abuses at the drop of a hat. However, this habit gets him into an argument with his girlfriend Sharwari’s (Sanskruti Balgude) father and all hell breaks loose. Meanwhile, Sharwari’s family finds her a groom, Vikrant (Piyush Ranade), who happens to be Raghav’s nemesis. The only way out for Raghav is to give up the abuses and rescue Shawari from the villainous Vikrant.
The film could’ve worked as a love-story anyway. But by including cuss words, Raut not only added an unnecessary angle to it but also restricted his viewer base. Bhushan and Sanskruti have a good chemistry as a result of their pairings before. Piyush as the villain is convincing.
Cinema often inspires viewers and Shivya does too; it inspires you to use its title to describe the viewing experience.
