Champion (2000) Review


OK
In this predictably epic Bollywood production, we are offered a rare action film in which a grizzled bodyguard/suspended cop is charged with caring for an orphan whose parents were killed in a suspicious plane crash. (Well, not that suspicious: We see our terrorist bad guy putting a bomb on the plane in the first scene.) Eventually bodyguard and killer meet, but not until we've made it through hours of song and dance -- including an absurd subplot involving the folks' secretary, who has dreams of being a professional singer. Not bad, but much too long and ridiculously meandering.
