Salman delivers one of his best performances in recent times. He makes magnificent use of his tough physique and soft face. Salman’s fans are sure to lap this knockout performance in a big way. BODYGUARD would be incomplete without Kareena’s contribution. Some roles are tailor-made for actresses who can deliver with aplomb and who better than Kareena to infuse life in a challenging character. She looks gorgeous [as always] and gives this character the dignity that it deserves. Raj Babbar is perfect. Mahesh Manjrekar is as usual. Aditya Pancholi, in a cameo, stages a welcome comeback. He’s first-rate. Rajat Rawail is a joy to watch. He’s truly funny. Hazel is quite good. Asrani and Vidya Sinha are okay in their respective parts.

Two things are certain now. ONE. Salman Khan is the darling of the masses. TWO. Straight from the horse’s mouth we hear that he and Katrina Kaif are no longer a couple. “Yeh Madam Katrina Kaif ki tasveer hai. Yeh assignment khatam ho chukka hai,” says Salman as Lovely Singh the BODYGUARD when he is accidentally given a wrong photograph of the girl he has to guard.

So the question you really need to ask here is: what is your expectation from Bodyguard? This query isn’t directed at die-hard fans of Bollywood’s beloved ‘Bhai’, of course. They’re too dedicated to read reviews. Personally though, I have, without any snob value, enjoyed his brand of buffoonery and brawn on every occasion he justified or rose above the written material.
After Dabangg, my expectations were on an all-time high. Since Ready, they’ve been unswervingly low.
But the afore-mentioned audience in Screen 2 and its exuberant anticipation rubbed off on me as I braced myself for something that wasn’t meant to be logical,
