BodyGuard Movie Review (1st On Net)


What is Bodyguard all about ?
A melodramatic love story laced with comedy and a twist in the tale.

Is this an entertainer or a tearjerker ?
A perfect blend of entertainment which dominates the first half and sentiment which takes the centre stage in the second half. Sentiment is the mainstay in the film.

How are the performances ?Venkatesh-Trishna-Bodyguard-Telugu-Movie-Review-Pics
Venkatesh is at his elemental best as Bodyguard Venkatadri. Comic scenes in the first half are a cakewalk for a seasoned actor like Venkatesh. Sentiment scenes are performed with equal ease by him. Trisha gets a meaty role and she does complete justice to the character. Saloni performs well within her limits. Prakash Raj gets to do what he does in every other film these days. Other actors like Ali, Subba Raju, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Jayaprakash Reddy and MS Narayana are adequate.

What about the all important story and dialogues ?
Lets not waste time talking about the story which is no secret to anybody who follows Indian film industry as this has already been made in 3 different languages. Dialogues are adequate and at times extremely funny in comedy scenes. Sentiment dialogues could have been a bit better but there is nothing much to complain about.

What about the music ?
Songs are a definite plus for the film and S.S.Thaman scores well in BGM department. He has done a wonderful job in elevating the mood of the film be it in romantic scenes or action scenes.

Other technical departments and production values ?
Editing and cinematography are adequate. Songs are canned in picturesque locations and production values for the remainder of the film are top notch.

Gopichand Malineni…How did he handle the remake ?
Gopichand by and large did stick to the original version of the film and made a faithful remake of the Malayalam version of the movie. He succeeded in making a entertaining first half and a riveting second half.
