Bodyguard Movie Review (BD)

Rating: * * *  1/2

Movie Information: IMDB Link

Cast: Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Raj Babbar, Hazel, Mahesh Manjrekar

Direction: Siddique

Genre: Action, Romance, Humor

Duration: 2 hours 29 minutes

Movie Overview:

After Dabbang and Ready, this film is going to be third consecutive feather in Salman’s cap. The movie, is remade thrice, which itself proves its worth and impact on the box office. This version of the movie, as the other two is good.

But here’s the game, I felt a little disappointed with the treatment of the movie. The screenplay rushed at an odd pace. The first half was intriguing and speedy, but the second half stammers a bit. Again, in the last 20 minutes, we see a hurricane of emotions.

The movie has all the proportionate elements of a Masala Movie, but I seriously felt a letdown in the humor quotient of the movie. The so-called “Tsunami Singh” was a hugh disappointment, rather than him, his T Shirts looked funny. The dialogues were above average.

A die-hard Salman fan might get disappointed, but it was a pleasure seeing Salman in a romantic movie; that too; was totally unexpected. Music boosted the movie, due to which, the faulty screenplay gets sidelined.

After watching this one, my recent favorites from Salman goes in the following order.
1. Dabbang
2. Bodyguard
3. Wanted
4. Ready

Give it a try folks!


Quick Review:


Salman Khan is in top notch here. Kareena is back in the form. Mahesh Manjrekar, Aditya Pancholi, Raj Babbar are remarkable. Rajat Rawail as Tsunami is a letdown. He acts well sans comic timing. Hazel Keech (as friend of Kareena) is noteworthy.

Story And Screenplay:

Story and Screenplay by Siddique are both adopted from the original version. Story is good with strong subplots (though over looked in the movie), where as screenplay is inconsistant. Dialogues needed to be more powerful.

P.S. the phrase Main Maarta Kam, Ghasithta Zyada Hoon was missing in the movie (thanks to my friend who noticed it)

Editing And Cinematography:

Editing by Sanjay Sankla is good, he manages to keep the movie on track inspite of futile screenplay. Cinematography by Sejal Shah is marvelous. 

Music And Background Score:

This section proves to be the strongest backbone of the movie. Himesh Reshammiya has lived upto the expectations from the fans. Background score from Sandeep Shirodkar is top class.


It would be an amateur statement to state Siddique as a debutant.This man has 27 films on his credits (Tollywood, Kollywood and Bollywoood), out of which most of the movies have turned to be a cult hit. He is flawless on the director's chair.

Finally, watch it! Even if you are not a Salman Khan fan, you wont regret watching this one.

Rating:* * *1/2
