As Bad As You Can Get : Bodyguard

There are legendary movies , there are great movies , there are bad movies , there are Walkout movies and then there is BODYGUARD.A film that makes you wonder about all the decision's youve taken in life and suddenly conclude: YES this was the worst you made to go and watch it .
To start of the atrocious piece of cinema that bodyguard serve's on your plate is through scenes which make a Rajnikant admit he could not have pulled it off.Salman khan's character starts of with a dabang meets shivaji meets singham style action sequence and some really good use of the dolby surround sound and a legendary Rerun of the famous Sholay dialogue by Asrani " Aadhe idhar jao aadhe udhar jao baaki mere peeche aao ".you are 10 minutes into the movie and you are already thinking about your fear's coming true.
End of some Dolby powered fight scene's , introduction of Familiar characters/actors in a salman movie and then comes the women .Kareena and her friend seem to be the only shining light in the movie - shows how desparate your search is to find some positives while bearing oddly about 150 mins.Then starts the making of a love story a love story which has no meaning which has conventional approach and a dumbf**k bodyguard who is all devoted to his Kartavya to protect a girl.
The movie drags to a painful interval and you know there is as much to go as much as you already managed to survive .the battle is just half won and it gets worse in the 2nd half of the movie with a tale of love deciet betrayal , lies sacrifice somehow all culminating to a final end product which makes you wonder what cinema has progressed to.the climax is particularly worth laughing ( that is if u haven still walked out of the movie yet ) where salman and his crew pull of a DDLJ KKHH plot and one little annoying kid who is showcasing his emotional side too much .
Movies like these make you wonder why our cinema has not progressed beyond a certain level , its not to blame the makers but the viewers as well . A crappy movie like this goes on and Shatters box office records grossing 20 odd crores on the First day itself , where as a pure piece of cinematic brilliance like some of the work by the really good directors of the country are satisfied if it breaks even too.
Cinema should be about portraying passion towards film making and not just vying commercial success.I am glad in the khan ruled world of bollywood there are still makers like Anurag Kashyap,Dibakar banerjee etc who make films out of pure passion and vision to satisfy maybe a small but a worthy audience without falling for the temptation of the box office gains.
All and all a poorly executed movie with no meaning what - so - ever and for all those who still wanna watch it well cant convince them ... Life is too short to do so many other imp things in life.
P.S - i have never written anything ever in my life , my first reaction to a movie on a blog , pardon me for the errors and everything , and if u read this after watchin the movie i know no mistake of mine could make your evening worse.
