Shiva is a 2006 Indian Hindi-language action film produced and directed by Ram Gopal Varma. The film was a prequel to the original 1990, Shiva, which is a remake of the 1989 Telugu film of the same name. The film was screened at New York Asian Film Festival. The film was dubbed in Telugu as Shiva 2006.[1] Later was dubbed in Tamil as Udhayam 2006. The movie was failure at box office.


The film begins with the brutal murder of a Mumbai man named John by a group of gangsters led by ruthless kingpin Bappu Ganesh (Upendra Limaye). As time goes on, Bappu becomes more and more powerful, until he manages to seize power from the government of Maharashtra and make himself chief minister of the state to seize all of Maharashtra's money. Shiva Swarassi (Mohit Ahlawat) is a poor slum-dweller who, after watching his parents being brutally murdered by Bappu's men, decides that it's time to get rid of Bappu. He gets the people of Dharavi Slum in Mumbai together and forms a rebellion against him.



The music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja. The song "Saara Yeh Aalam" is based on "Ananda Ragam" from the Tamil film Panneer Pushpangal (1981).[2]
