When it comes to comedy, nobody can beat Govinda! Those moves with the pelvic thrust, the impromptu improvisation of dialogues, over-the-top fashion choices, the impeccable comic timings, the expressions and the ‘bindass-ness’ all of these words are Govinda!
Till date, if I’m stuck in traffic or having a bad day, I just play Govinda songs or YouTube Govinda funny scenes and my day is all brightened up instantly.
Seriously, try singing ‘Kisi disco mein jaaye’ without the ‘uuh’ and even if you aren’t singing it, there’s a voice in your head that goes ‘uuh’. Can’t blame you, that man is infectious!
Over the years we’ve seen our Hero No.1 in different avatars. Among those Aunty No. 1, Coolie No.1, and Chachaji from Haseena Maan Jayegi are my absolute favourites! And every avatar of his has either made me laugh or has taught me some life lessons.
Let me list them out for you, so that you may feel like every colour but blue.
1. Remember that time when he went all nintakle pintakle?
If you love tongue twisters, this one’s for you!
2. He always spoke his mind out loud #MOL!
You can dedicate this one to your boss and thank Govinda later.
(Bade Miyan Chote Miyan)
3. He had swagger even before the word existed.
Intro ho toh aisa ho! (Takes notes)
(Coolie no 1)
4. The man owns the hashtag #NoFilter.
When you meet your partner’s ex and your mind goes like...
5. The man always believed in the saying “Jo hai, woh hai”
Roses maybe red, violets maybe blue, but some things he said made us go like “that’s so true!”
6. At times, he left us speechless.
Funny or not this comment made us LOL in usual Govinda Style
(Aap Ki Adalat)
I mean, look at that face with a straight face. I dare ya!
So, this weekend, call your yaars over, pour yourselves a glass of McDowell’s whisky and go go go Govinda!
