When it comes to being punctual and doing his duties perfectly, Lovely Singh is unmatchable. Taking great pride in what he does, he spares no effort in giving his everything to his profession. Summoned for an assignment of guarding Divya, the daughter of Sartaj Rana, a business tycoon, Lovely Singh accompanies her to her campus, but ends up rubbing her the wrong way with his over-protective nature and paranoia about security. She finds him to be a major obstacle in leading a regular campus life. To throw him off-track and get him out of the way, she comes up with a 'master-plan'- that of trapping him in a fake love affair. -- (C) Reliance … More

Critic Reviews for The Bodyguard (Kaavalan)
This spin on the 1992 Kevin Costner/Whitney Houston movie about a bodyguard who falls for his difficult charge is silly and derivative, but sneakily entertaining nonetheless.
Even more than its overwrought music-video numbers and needlessly complicated finale, Khan ups the movie's ridiculousness.
A twist near the end sends this contrived movie into a maudlin stratosphere from which it doesn't recover.
Here the fight and stunt sequences are afforded as much care and attention as the song and dance scenes; it's all top-notch stuff.
Audience Reviews for The Bodyguard (Kaavalan)
Bodyguard, another one of Salman's Bollywood masala movie doesn't really catch you as a good one. It has a good story but the songs make it a torture sometimes.
I think this movie could have been a better movie with the action deducted from it. With Salman just a bodyguard not saving people like a super hero and a plain love story. I think it would have reached out to the audience more, with the same ending.
Salman Khan was never an outstanding actor and now even in his comedy roles he seems to be overacting a lot now. Even Kareena Kapoor, one of the tops who are great on the big screen were seen overacting.
The Action scenes were very unrealistic. Salman's character made him look like a superman.
In short, it's just a comic entertainer. A one time watching family movie.
