Dec 21, 2017
Whenever we talk about comedy in Bollywood, there’s one actor who cannot be miss is Govinda. He is indeed Bollywood’s funny man and naturally has a huge fan following. Govinda ruled the box office in 90s and gave some huge hits and if it weren’t for him, 90s Bollywood would have been very different from what we remember. He carried the ultimate swag in everything he did. From his funny fashion sense to the impeccable dancing and great comedy timing.
As he turns 54 today, we recall Govinda’s best comedy films:
It was his first hit comedy film and was directed by his then mentor David Dhawan. It was a dual role for him and also had Chunkey Pandey, Kader Khan and that adorable monkey! This movie became an all time blockbuster and kick started his career as a funny man and a leading actor in a comic role.
Govinda is known for his film Raja Babu till date and we can’t fathom how funny and hilarious this film was. This film was also directed by David Dhawan and had memorable antics with Shakti Kapoor. He played the no-good country bumpkin who falls for a well educated uptown girl played by Karisma Kapoor.
Hero No. 1
Govinda, David Dhawan, Karisma Kapoor and Kader Khan were the “it” gang of comedy in the 90s. This film along with the gang had Paresh Rawal as well. Recipe for success? The son of a wealthy business man lives as a domestic help in his girl friend’s house to solve all the problems. Yes, that was the basic story line which has been influenced from Rajesh Khanna starrer Bawarchi.
Bade Miyan Chote Miyan
Bade Miyan Chote Miyan is David Dhawan’s successful remake of the Hollywood film “Bad Boys” featuring Govinda and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead roles. This film gave an opportunity to Govinda to outshine Bachchan Sahab. Govinda was at his best in the film – full of energy and mischief!
David Dhawan and Govinda are the quintessential director-actor Jodi and reunited after a gap through this film. This film also stars Salman Khan and is the remake of another Hollywood film ‘Hitch’. Govinda plays a patient to love doctor Salman Khan and learns how to woo women. The film was a huge success.
This list of Govinda’s best comedy film shows how he can take up any avatar with ease and makes the character his own. On his birthday we wish him all the luck and love and wait for another amazing Govinda film in the future.
