5 reasons to watch Ajay Devgn starrer Shaitaan

A true actor is someone who always reinvents himself with each passing film. Considered to be one of Bollywood’s stellar actors Ajay Devgn, is one such actor, who has always been seen reinventing himself and his acting prowess with every film of his. Right from his debut film Phool Aur Kaante till this week’s release Shaitaan, which happens to be a horror film having black magic as its crux, Ajay Devgn has always wowed the audiences with his craft. Speaking of Shaitaan, which will be released this week, here are the five reasons that make this film a must watch!


Reason 1: Ajay Devgn! Is that even a question?
Whenever there is an Ajay Devgn film, do the audiences need any other reason to watch the film! Ditto for this week’s release Shaitaan, which stars Ajay Devgn in a leading role. The last few releases of Ajay Devgn have been of an extremely diverse genre. These releases include Runway 34 (wherein he played the role of Lieutenant Flight Captain), Drishyam 2 (how can anyone forget the iconic character of Vijay Salgaonkar) and the extremely loved film Bholaa.

This time round. Ajay Devgn will be seen in Shaitaan, a film that has been directed by the prolific filmmaker Vikas Bahl. Besides Ajay Devgn, the film also stars yet another stellar actor in the form of R Madhavan. The film Shaitaan also marks the first time pairing of Ajay Devgn with R Madhavan, which has made the audiences super excited to see the two superlative actors in one frame!

Reason 2: Superstars R. Madhavan and Jyotika
After having started off with humble beginnings on television, R. Madhavan has gone to not just create history, but also write his-story, but, on his own terms! Thanks to the selective section of the films that he has done so far in addition to the squeaky clean image that he enjoys off screen,
R.Madhavan aka Maddy has become an undisputed darling of the masses. Ditto for the southern superstar Jyotika, who is all set to capture the hearts and attention of the audiences with this film.

As for Shaitaan, this will be the first time, Maddy will be seen in the role of an antagonist, whose middle name seems to be smooth operator, as seen in the gripping trailers of the film which have been released so far.

Reason 3 : Vikas Bahl
This year seems to be the year of the filmmaker Vikas Bahl. While on one hand, his latest OTT release Sunflower 2 is doing exceptionally well amidst encouraging reports, on the other hand, Vikas is now all set to stun the audiences with the supernatural thriller Shaitaan. Given the ‘hit’ track record of Vikas Bahl, who has to his credit, of having made films like Queen, Super 30 and others, the audiences are rest assured that, Shaitaan will surely be yet another feather in the cap of Vikas.

Reason 4: Remake of the superhit Gujarati film ‘Vash’
Yes! The makers of Shaitaan had made it extremely clear that their film is an official remake of the superhit Gujarati film ‘Vash’. Considering that the film did wonders at the box office in Gujarati language, the audiences are not just hopeful, but are super confident that Shaitaan will surely break many records at the box office.

Reason 5: Film ‘premise’ of Shaitaan
We do agree that Shaitaan is an official remake of the superhit Gujarati film ‘Vash’, but those who have seen the latter have already started swearing by the super success of the former, only by seeing a mere glimpse of the film in its gripping and riveting trailer. Despite being a remake, the treatment that has been meted out to Shaitaan is what makes it totally different and also forms one of the driving points for the film to bring in the audiences to the theatres!

As for the film Shaitaan, besides Ajay Devgn and R Madhavan, the film also stars the southern superstar Jyotika and also Janki, the very young talent who had starred in the Gujarati film. Shaitaan is all set to be released in theatres on March 8.
