It's Mahashivrati, an occasion that is marked by being up all night long, singing praises of Lord Shiva. Over the years, there have been several films that have celebrated the power of the Lord. And for cinephiles, could there be a better way than to mark an occasion through films? 

Here are 5 films that you can watch today that celebrate the glory of Lord Shiva.

Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva
Ranbir Kapoor plays a man named Shiva, an orphan who possesses pyrokinetic powers and discovers that he is an astra, a weapon of enormous energy. He sets out on a quest to prevent the strongest of the astras, the Brahmāstra, from falling into the wrong hands.

Prabhas' character in Baahubali: The Beginning is named Shiva, and he is a devotee of Lord Shiva. Who can forget the iconic scene from the film, when he carries a huge shivalinga on his shoulder that he moves from under a waterfall? 

Bolo Har Har from Shivaay is among the most popular film songs dedicated to Lord Shiva. Ajay Devgn's character, Shivaay, is loosely based on Lord Shiva; he is a mountaineer who drinks bhaang, smokes, and is violent. And like Lord Shiva, he also becomes the destroyer of evil.

Set against the backdrop of the 2013 Uttarakhand floods, this 2018 film that stars the late Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan is about a Hindu pilgrim (Sara) and a Muslim porter (Sushant) who fall in love during the trek to Kedarnath. We are sure that you will be humming the tunes of Namo Namo all night this Mahashivratri.

Satellite Shankar
Sooraj Pancholi plays Shankar, a soldier in the Indian army who is a Shiv bhakth. He is a do-gooder, who doesn't seek appreciation for what he does. He goes on leave for eight days, and the entire town rallys behind him to help him keep his promise of returning on time.
