Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...works for varied reasons -- it has a simple, but captivating story with a dramatic twist in the tale, the chemistry between the lead actors is perfect and the music is well juxtaposed in the narrative. But its biggest USP is, without doubt, Salman Khan.

  • It's Salman all the way...

  • The viewer is not enthralled but bhaijaan has done the best that his comic strip straitjacket could allow him.

  • ...a good entertaining flick for the masses.

  • ...despite its glitches, the film is worth a watch. If you are a Salman fan, you shouldn't miss this one.

  • ...while Dabangg offered a precise volume of coolness and chutzpah, Ready went overboard with the shtick. Bodyguard, meanwhile, is on the underwhelming side.

    Critic rating (?)

  • He flexes his biceps, repeats mad dance moves, spouts whistle-deserving dialogues and yes, his shirt divorces his body once again. Predictable? Maybe, but who's complaining? Not bhaijan's fans for sure.

  • ...is endurable (and I say this without any condescension) for those who can forgive the haphazard story and be happy enjoying the songs and watching Salman and Kareena onscreen.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Only for diehard Salman Khan fans, Bodyguard has nothing to offer to the fastidious cineaste.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • For a change, there's a more definite story than usual but it's so convoluted and stupid, you’d have actually settled for a film with a lesser story, but which entertained more.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The reason you'll watch this film or would want to watch it is Salman Khan.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...if you value the mop on your scalp and the grey cells in your head and want to guard yourself against this potentially mind-numbing body blow, give it a miss.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • No question it's going to make a lot of money at the box-office, but you have to be a die-hard fan to forgive this film its many flaws.

  • This Id, it is Salman Mubarak. However, fans be warned that Bodyguard does not offer them the familiar Sallu bhaigiri.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Barring Kareena Kapoor, Bodyguard is a ham fest. A bad amalgam of faulty story, poor execution replete with tardiness.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Here's what this film's super-star should do next. Pick up, remake every regional blockbuster of Rajnikanth's from the recent past. That's what super-hero, cartoon character Salman is to the Hindi audiences by now: Rajnikanth for the excitable North.

    Critic rating (?)

  • At the time of writing, Bodyguard is on its way to shatter all box office records. Does it really matter what I think?

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Even Salman's charisma can't salvage the torture that Bodyguard is! It's high time he stopped doing remakes of South-Indian films. We have had enough!

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...can also safely be called In which Salman Continues to Give Us Those Ones. Let me count the ways.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • 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 a sorry, convoluted twists just kill whatever other fun you could have had.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • Until somebody comes up with a smart way to channelise his brawny appeal and knack for self-deprecating humour – as Abhinav Singh Kashyap did in Dabanng – we are condemned to watch bad films repeat themselves.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • But how long with audiences put up with bad films (like Ready and this one) just because they want to see Salman Khan?
