Well known internal bias: Huge fan of Salman
Bodyguard is so far the weakest one in the recent run of Salman starrers starting with Wanted and going onto Dabanng and Ready. Of course, Salman plays himself to perfection and gives you your money's worth if it's only him you have come to watch but the movie as a whole disappoints.
Salman plays the straight bodyguard who is assigned to protect Kareena from some goondas who want to kidnap/ kill her to hit back at her dad. Well, she is never in great danger from what we can see and to kill her boredom and get him off her back she pretends to be a girl in love with him and keeps calling him on a phone with the most irritating ring tone ever. Well, he falls in love with a voice and then the twists and turns ensue. Suffice to say, nothing much happens till the interval except for lots of Salman.
Kareena is perky but has the wierdestdress sense here. The rest of the cast is not much to talk about. The songs are quite ok and of course I love to watch him dance.
However, a couple of funny dialogues and some trademark Salluisms like his shirt coming off or a signature dialogue do not make up for some shoddy acting, fat man juvenile jokes and a weak script.
The movie is time pass still, and there are a couple of chillar throwing moments, but just about. I think its time for our man to stop being generous to his relatives and take more care of himself. Watered down versions of himself will not help him maintain his superstardom.
