    Verdict - Decent watch especially for the ladies and families

    Bodyguard as a story surprises me. Remade in four languages now, the film has done decent business in all, with some record breaking money being earned in the Hindi version. Telugu version of this film too seems set to be a hit this festive season.

    The story here in Telugu is much more truer to the original Malayalam version, doing away with the trappings Hindi one had thanks to Salman Khan. Venkatesh plays a bodyguard hired by a political heavy weight to protect his daughter Trisha. Trisha plays a game of an anonymous caller falling in love with Venky, and eventually does fall for him. Twists and turns later, the two meet.

    Despite being the fourth time, Bodyguard has a fresh Telugu appeal to it, though much of the situations don't really change in the entire film. Trisha is charming and does a good job, though much is not asked from her in the story.

    Venkatesh gives his character the trademark emotional substance, impressing in the emotional parts. He has excelled in roles like these in family entertainers earlier, and Bodyguard is no different. Te climax especially is sure to be a huge crowd puller.

    Releasing on the heels of the Mahesh Babu starrer Businessman, Bodyguard is a tested formula of love and emotional family melodrama with a dose of action that can rarely go wrong. With the Sankranti season in, it sure will work.

    Watch it if only to find comfort in the usual formula of a Telugu film.
