The plot Lovely Singh (Khan) is unmatched in the field when it comes to carrying out his bodyguard duties, so when business tycoon Sartaj Rana (Babbar) has to hire a man to take care of his daughter, Divya (Kapoor), Singh's his number one go-to guy. But unlike her father, Divya isn't enamoured of Lovely's overzealous manner and starts plotting ways in which she can distract him, so she can carry on with her party-filled college life.

In an attempt to throw Lovely off-track, Divya decides to make him fall in love, telling her pals, "Once he gets hooked romantically, he'll leave me alone." But her cunning ploy to distract him with romance takes a long time to work, as Lovely proves a tough nut to crack. And when Divya learns a few hidden truths about her bodyguard, he soon gets caught in a web of lies, trickery and deceit.

What we liked In a word (or two), Salman Khan, Salman Khan, and did we mention Salman Khan? Sallu's still cashing in on his Dabangg clout, packing a punch even when the storyline isn't much to write home about (it's basically a remake of the 1992 Whitney Houston flick).

What we didn't like While Salman is a treat to watch, the audience may not be willing to watch him do the same routine all over again, so soon after Ready! And it's strange why director Siddique chose to remake his South Indian film flop for his Bollywood debut.

e+ says This one's strictly for Salman fans.
