Synopsis

When it comes to being punctual and doing his duties perfectly, bodyguard Lovely Singh (Salman Khan) is unmatchable. Taking great pride in what he does, he spares no effort in giving his everything to his profession.

Assigned to guard Divya (Kareena Kapoor), the daughter of business tycoon Sartaj Rana, Lovely accompanies her to 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 plan to trap him in a fake love affair. She becomes an anonymous admirer of his and starts hounding him, expressing her 'feelings' in no uncertain terms. Lovely, however, proves to be a tough nut to crack, and it takes quite a doing from her side to penetrate his fort-like exterior. But once she succeeds in doing so, he transforms into a completely different person. Divya is triumphant and is all set to relish her regained freedom.

But things take an unexpected turn when she learns a few things about Lovely Singh—things that she never could've imagined! And she soon finds herself trapped in a dilemma that she's unable to resolve. And with her, soon enough, Lovely Singh finds himself ensnared in a web of lies, trickery and deceit.

BODYGUARD is a story of conflict—between innocence and mischief, love and power, and life and death.

  • 5 stars "this was such a good movie !!!!!!!!!!"
  • 4 stars "Entertaining movie - This Khan rocks!"
  • 4 stars "Let me say, BODYGUARD is a typical Salman entertainer, yet there are moments in its second hour specifically that make it stand apart from all Salman starters we have witnessed in the recent past, which includes WANTED, DABANGG and READY. On the whole, BODYGUARD 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. Salman Khan carries the film on his broad and brawny shoulders and that alone is the imperative reason for watching this film. BODYGUARD should emerge his third festive hit and fourth super-success at the ticket window. Feroz"
