Here is the complete film.

About Taandav

Muvizz.com debuts in production and proudly presents Taandav. It is a story of a rejected policeman who feels Taandav of thoughts in his brain and unleshes a Taandav in the end. The movie is directed by Devashish Makhija and Manoj Bajpayee is in the lead role. The movie is released on 5th Feb in Mumbai and is released on Youtube on the same day. The movie has crossed 5,00,000 views in just 1 week.


The movie starts with a Ganpati Visarjan bandobast, where a Head Constable is charged to have his duty all night long. He was under a thought process. His daughter couldn’t get admission in the school because the donation was not affordable to him. Even after seeing a bag of money (counting more than 12 lacs), he honestly did his duty. His colleagues felt cheated on this. His wife shut the door on his face. Standing in the loud music of Visarjan, 2 men came to him over a matter. He takes his gun out and asks them to dance. It brings out his dance and he kept on doing it like a Taandav. His colleagues record a video of it and he got suspended in the end.

My Take

We all know the word Taandav. It is dance of Lord Shiva which is indication of destruction. In the beginning, I saw people dancing with the mask on and a Head Constable was watching them. I felt that there might be some criminals who will be killed in a shootout in next few minutes. But in the next minute, I am proved wrong. He was at his daughter’s school for admission where he falls short in paying donation. Then I got into the movie and understood that this is taandav of his thoughts.

Initially I thought, How can they show a story in just 11 minutes that too with a big star like Manoj Bajpayee. But the director Devashish Makhija has directed it well and kept it up to the mark. I enjoyed the movie. This is a story of every mankind. The music by Nucleya will bring out Taandav from every person who is under stress.

My Ratings : 8.5 / 10
