And you do know who we are talking about when we say 'Comedy King'! It is none other than the man who can play with his eyebrows, who wears the most funkiest and colourful clothes, who dances like no one is watching and has the most amazing comic timing any lead actor has ever had- GOVINDA; jiski pant bhi sexy, jiski shirt bhi sexy, jiske baal bhi sexy jiski chaal bhi sexy haiâ€¦!
Even though we love all his moviesâ€¦specially the ones directed by David Dhawan, we bring to you the best five movies of Govinda.
After a spate of action, romantic and drama films in his previous flicks, doing what every hero does, Govinda did the action-comedy Aankhen along with Chunky Pandey. The movie went on to become the biggest hit of the year and Govinda was appreciated for his double role and his comedy! This movie ensured many more David Dhawan-Govinda movies in future!
2. Hero No.1:
With Coolie No.1, the duo of Dhawan and Govinda had set the standards 'high'. And surely, the second 'No.1' film didn't disappoint. Chart-topping songs, hit Jodi of Govinda and Karishma Kapoor along with Kader Khan, Paresh Rawal and Shakti Kapoor and the David Dhawan magic. The romantic-comedy was about the rich boy becoming a servant to win his lady love. The movie is another memorable one along with too many genuine comic scenes.
3. Deewana Mastana:
It would be impossible if we do not mention this movie! A 'Tom and Jerry' scenario between the street-smart Anil Kapoor and the innocent Govinda in a bid to get the gorgeous Juhi Chawla. The is one amazing comic caper along with a very special appearance by Salman Khan, yesâ€¦that's the cherry on top! If you yet haven't seen it, we recommend you to watch this one RIGHT NOW!
4. Saajan Chale Sasaural:
Two-timing in Bollywood always used to be serious drama. But then arrived the David Dhawan and Govinda duo to change the game! A fun-filled ride with Govinda two-timing between his two wives! So before you watch the Govinda starrer 'Sandwich' or watch Jr. Dhawan romancing two ladies in 'Main Tera Hero', make it a point to see where he learnt those tricks from! *winks*
5. Haseena Maan Jaayegi:
Govinda has always shared a great chemistry not only with his female co-stars but also the male co-stars! And this movie was another example of his amazing chemistry with Sanjay Dutt! The journey of two rich spoilt brats out to get the love of their lives and what follows is a fun-filled journey of too many people getting involved and confusion of identities. We completely enjoyed the bromance between Govinda and Sanjay.
It would be unfair if we do not mention how important Kader Khan, Johnny Lever, Paresh Rawal, Satish Kaushik and Shakti Kapoor have been in nearly all Govinda movies!
How we wish we could see more of Govinda back on the big screen; he had three releases this year and we wished he had more screen time in each of them!
Wishing him lots of luck for his future ventures and hoping he doesn't stay away from films for along!
