This is part of Salman Khan’s trilogy quadrology after Wanted, Dabangg, Ready and now Bodyguard in remakes of South Indian movies with pumping slow motion /fast moving action and hummable songs, slapstick comedy, typical Bollywood drama and packaged in a nice box for you to eat and savour. This is not cinema in the class of gourmet, but cinema in the class of chat, gol gappas and hot dogs (if you get the metaphor- you will get the movie as well)
The movie is actually nice, the actors are well casted , for a change this is actually a script, the humor is bearable if 300 people in the movie theatre are laughing with you, in some places the comic scenes are good. Salman Khan starts with a wooden expression for his bodyguard facial expressions, but by the end Kareena Kapoor and Salman prove why they are the numero uno entertainers in the world’s largest movie crazy market (by volume of movies). I liked it better than Wanted and Ready, and almost as nice as Dabangg.
and yes Salman and Kareena look good together!
Watch it to enjoy, and take some pleasure from the simple things of life.
This is a movie that restores faith in the good old art of story telling with completely realistic but not in the face Computer Generated Effects.
Both Charles (as Prof X) and Erik (as Magneto) are awesome, but Erik steals the show as Michael FAsbbender plays the avenging Holocaust victim with complete and ruthless abandon. The use of Mad Men like costumes, and the flashback to history was awesome too, but the Russians were bad- same old chaps we have seen playing Russians in dozens of movies , slurring over their Rs. The interpolation of JFK, Cuban Missile Crisis and even the 1960’s chauvinistic humor really add on to this movie.
Watch it- good for both family and friends. Kevin Bacon is a steal, and lots of talented actors now join the Kevin Bacon game.
I just saw the Bollywood Movie , Ready (2011) starring Salman Khan and Asin. Salman Khan has been the Charlie Sheen of Indian Cinema for some time now, and the movie plays up to his charm, slapstick humor and slap full action.
Asin is a great actor, and this is not art for the sake of art- it is art to make the people laugh.
Enjoy it but with tempered expectations that you are in for some stupendous Bollywoodish humor.
