“if you value the mop on your scalp and the grey cells in your head and want guard yourself against this potentially mind-numbing body blow, give it a miss. Better be safe than sorry!”
“‘Bodyguard’ is a typical Salman entertainer, yet there are moments [in its second hour specifically] that make it stand apart from all Salman starrers we have witnessed in the recent past, which includes ‘Wanted’, ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Ready’.”
Bodyguard has been directed by Siddique. Including the Hindi version, the movie has already been released in four different languages, off which three has been directed by Siddique. It was first released in Malayalam on Aug 31st, then in Tamil followed by the current Hindi version. The next release is the Telugu version.
