Movie Info

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

Critic Reviews for The Bodyguard (Kaavalan)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Forget the plot, this is a shameless showcase for its ageing, A-list lead.

Top Critic

Even more than its overwrought music-video numbers and needlessly complicated finale, Khan ups the movie's ridiculousness.

Village Voice
Top Critic

A twist near the end sends this contrived movie into a maudlin stratosphere from which it doesn't recover.

New York Times
Top Critic

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.

Film Journal International

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)

A very fun action/comedy/romance which is dragged down by on overlong coda. Salman Khan plays his well-honed earnest tough guy character again but I can't fault him for sticking with such a winning and amusing formula since he does it so well and I still enjoy it.

it was good-ish. The ending made me think "WHAT THE HELL!?" (not in the good way) while making me almost want to cry at the same time... but more "wth".

well choreographed stunt scenes and nice editing work, but the story developed into having two different identities. Started off as a light comedy but the twist in the end made it melodramatic and sort of killed it for me.
