| Its all star power to blame.
Bodyguard seems to be a follow up of Dabbang and Ready, Salman Khan's previous blockbuster but it seems a more messy mash up of these earlier versions. The film didn't show any promise neither from its trailer neither when the reel starts rolling. As the painfully hilarious proceedings go on there is no way you can concentrate except to wonder how far Salman's star power is going to drag this film. It is evident that the director has put all his test on Salman and played a rather bold step. Not surprisingly the movie will be a crowd pleasure for many a viewer but there a re many who will be fatigued by its lack of plot and tactless story telling.

Meant to be a love story the movie is as predictable as a five year old can imagine. But the most painful scenes are the incessant annoying jokes from the side characters and the naive portrayal of the lead character.May be fat jokes were never this bad. In this male star power driven film there is definitely no space for Kareena Kapoor to show her talent. Whatever but as time passes by and peril hovers on the female lead the action scenes we are fed is not that brilliant too. As many previous films have proved that hero worship is not bad for box office but at least they should be made credible enough for all to believe or at best convincing. But no Bodyguard is a far cry from this and instead we get is a lot of crappy and cheap special effects. And the last and the most important scene of unbuttoning Salman's shirt was by far the worst creativity anyone can come up with. Its really sad that after so much of crazy mishaps there was some substance at the climax of the film. Though the writing at the climax should be praised it is too less an too little after two hours of stupidity.

At least Salman's charisma works enough for you to wait till the end. Its surprising that a single performance can put such leverage to a film as such. And a special applaud to the song 'Teri Meri' which was much better than all other mediocre tracks. At the end it doesn't seem fair that a single star and a single song put so many audiences through the film. May be such case shouldn't be criticized rather appraised for such a daring feat.
