Bodyguard Telugu Cinema Review
Presentation: The director has come up with an rehashed storyline and while the presentation was good, the narrative was not that intense. The dialogues were good at places, the script was written with moderate appeal and screenplay was steady. Background score was good and three songs were impressive. Cinematography was top notch. Editing was upto the mark. Costumes were trendy and stylish while the art department was colourful and rich. Venkatesh has come up with a balanced performance and he carried it well. Trisha looks pretty and very attractive in Sarees. Saloni looks sensuous and has that irresistible sex appeal in her. Prakash Raj was matured. Kota was brief. Ali was apt. Venu Madhav brought few smiles. Pragathi, Dharmavarapu gave the required support. The others didn’t have scope.
Opinion: The film is the remake of the Malayalam hit ‘Bodyguard’ and it has been lifted and shifted in the right manner barring few fight sequences. While the first half goes in a mild manner, it is the second half which gets into some momentum. The last twenty minutes is the key to the film which scores. Overall, the film has been made with high quality technical values and it could have created more impact if the comedy was strong and the length was trimmed. At the box office, this will appeal to the family audience, ladies and those who like matured romance so above average returns are expected.
verdict: Decent family entertainer
