Mahashivratri 2022: Watch these bollywood films to experience the powers of Shiva


Mumbai: Like romance and action, religion has also been the subject and background of countless films in Indian cinema. From ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960), ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977), ‘Oh My God’ (2012) and ‘PK’ (2014), there have been many films flouting religion-based themes. And directing a film with a religious plot, many makers have paid tribute to Lord Shiva in one form or the other over the years. On Mahashivratri, it is the best time for devotees to revisit the below-mentioned movies that celebrate the magical powers of the deity, also known as Neelkanth.

1. Except:

The Ajay Devgn-starrer ‘Shivaay’ is a must-see for any Shiva devotee as it deals with the human element of God. Ajay played the character of a mountaineer named Shivaay in the film. With the film released in 2016, Ajay, who also helmed the project, tried to portray Lord Shiva’s flaws apart from his goodness. He has made a mistake, people can fool him too. He is good at heart. It’s terrible when it turns violent. That’s what humans are. Shiva, I think is the only God who has all the elements,” Ajay had said in an interview. The title track of the film ‘Bolo Har Har’ is also dedicated to Lord Shiva and proves that the film depicts Lord Shiva as all evil. Interestingly, Ajay is a staunch follower of Lord Shiva in real life as well. Reportedly, he has got a big tattoo on his chest which is the symbol of Om along with the face of Shiva .

2. Kedarnathi

Thanks to filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor for beautifully portraying Kedarnath, a religious town in Uttarakhand’s Rudraprayag district that became important because of the ancient Kedarnath temple, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva, through his film. Released in 2018, ‘Kedarnath’ is set against the backdrop of the 2013 Uttarakhand floods. The film primarily revolves around Hindu pilgrim Mukku (played by Sara Ali Khan) and a Muslim coolie Mansoor (late Sushant Singh Rajput) who fall in love during their journey to Kedarnath. When you serve another human being, Shiva resides in you – one of the important messages the film conveys. Also, listening to Amit Trivedi’s soulful devotional song ‘Namo Namo’ from the film this Mahashivratri will surely act as a cherry on the cake.

3. Bahubali

The festival of Mahashivratri helps the devotees to know better about their god and be closer to him, and interestingly, the superhit movie ‘Baahubali’ includes such factors. The actor plays the role of a man named Prabhas in the film. Shiva who grows up to become a great devotee of Lord Shiva. His true devotion was displayed on screen when he carried the huge Shivling on his shoulders. The film also has a song dedicated to Lord Shiva, ‘Kaun Hai Woh’, which is played when Prabhas holds the idol of the deity.

4. Satellite Shankar

Like others, Sooraj Pancholi’s ‘Satellite Shankar’ also has a Shiva connect. In the film, Sooraj can temporarily teleport his fellow jawans to their loved ones using a device that has something to do with Lord Shiva. The film was directed by Irfan Kamal.

The year 2022 is very special for the devotees of Lord Shiva as Ayan Mukerji is coming up with a big budget film ‘Brahmastra’ which is dedicated to the third eye god. In the film, Ranbir Kapoor will be seen playing the role of a character named Shiva, who has special powers. The official logo of the upcoming project was unveiled at the Ardh Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj on the auspicious occasion of Mahashivratri in 2019. Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt are also a part of the film. The list did not stop here.

Devotees will also get to see superstar Akshay Kumar playing the role of Lord Shiva in ‘Oh My God 2’. Akshay had shared two posters of OMG 2 in October last year, one of which features him in a look inspired by Lord Shiva. The first poster shows Akshay in blue, with his eyes closed and hair in dreadlocks. ‘Rakh Vishwas, Tu Hai Shiv Ka Das’ can be seen written on the poster. The second poster depicts a blue hand, probably of God, holding the hand of a young boy.

So, after worshiping Lord Shiva this Mahashivratri on 1st March, don’t forget to turn on your TV set and watch the various features of the deity in a filmy manner.

Om Namah Shivay!
