oy, the deflating football! ::face palm::

@Larissa Oh, but it's just so very, truly Salman, no?

To be honest, what's kind of bothering me about the Hindi version is all the talk of adding in item numbers. Oh -- and did you notice? The little person seems to be out, and a very big guy seems to be in. Interesting all of it, how stuff shifts in moving the story from one cinematic tradition to another.

Larissa

Yeah, very Salman, and very gross :-P (Although the *look* Kareena gives him is pretty hilarious, bless her!)

I can't believe how Hindi films have gone crazy over item numbers post-Munni! The only one I heard about for Bodyguard is a "James Bond inspired" opening credits number featuring Salman and Katrina Kaif.

I think the very big guy is playing the role that Vadivelu played in the Tamil version. Did Dileep have a goofy sidekick in the Malayalam version?

As for whether the little person will make it in or not, that remains to be seen! :-)

Re: comic sidekick: yes and no. Dileep's character doesn't arrive with one. When the he and the girls move into accomodations near the college, two of the household servants are sent with them, one of them they guy in the Mallu clip who whaps Dileep with the mop. So he serves as comic relief/sidekick sometimes, but he's much more in the background in the Mallu original.

Interesting comparison! Dileep is an actor who has only 1 strength and that is comedy. He is not that good in serious scenes and action movies, but in comedy he is no 1 in malayalam. I thought Body Gaurd did not exploit his comic skills enough, and tried too much to make him an action hero. That was one of the reasons I didn't enjoy the movie much.

I recently saw one of his old Hits on TV - Punjabi House. I recommmend you to check it out if you get a chance. :)

@meenkaran I'm kind of relieved to hear you didn't enjoy Bodyguard -- I really liked the story premise and the twist, and there's a lot of it I did like, but I found it kind of let me down overall. I've not seen a lot of Dileep's films, but I am quite struck at how he reminds me of Govinda in what I have seen, so perhaps it's no surprise that you say he's better in comedies.

I'll keep an eye out for Punjabi House :-)
