Bodyguard - Preview

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

For once, a film made me wish it didn't have a story and was the usual Salman Khan "cool". That, at least I'm prepared for. The attempt at putting in sorry, convoluted twists just kill whatever other fun you could have had.

"More of the same" I can whine and cry my heart out, but some Salman Khan enthusiasts can dance with joy at the prospect of watching "more of the same" from him. Movies such as these are beyond reviews and opinions for die-hard fans.

But the Salman-cynic in me has something to look forward to. Yes, you read that right. One, I liked Salman's last film, Ready a lot more than I expected to (that's not saying much, even so). So who knows, I might just find something to like in the film. For example, Kareena Kapoor can be pretty good at comic timing if the director wishes so.

Also, usually no one expects a story from a film in this genre of action comedy. But, I was surprised by this still that tells a story by itself.

Still from Bodyguard You can tell that Salman Khan is nervous and Kareena Kapoor is pretty amused by this nervousness. It tells me that I can look forward to some decent acting too.

Don't worry, these little things won't make my hopes too high. Because for every positive thing that I can come up with, the trailer surely has something that will make me roll my eyes.

"mujhpar ek ehsaan karna, ki mujhpar koi ehsaan na karna" (Do me a favor, that you never do me a favor.) Are you trying to confuse me so well that I don't know whether to do you a favor or not? (For the uninitiated, that is a Dabangg)

Anyway, I think this one will be another festival for Salman Khan fans and for non-believers like me, there might just be a thing here and a thing there to keep us amused. If not, it's always fun to be amongst a bunch of people who love their Salman Khan films.
