The last 15 minutes of Vicky, Kiara, and Bhumi’s film, Govinda Naam Mera, are the only ones in which the film’s plot remains undeveloped.

Name: Govinda Naam Mera

Director: Shashank Khaitan

Cast: Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani,Bhumi Pednekar

Rating: 2 / 5


Govinda (Vicky Kaushal) is married to Gauri (Bhumi Pednekar), but he has an affair with Suku (Kiara Advani). When Govinda’s step brother and stepmother enter the picture to claim the bungalow registered to their father, the love triangle takes on a new dimension. The dispute over property results in murders and even theft. Who is responsible for the murder? The answers can be found in Govinda Naam Mera.

What succeeds?

There are points in Govinda Naam Mera that pique the reader’s interest and transport them to the complex world of Govinda Waghmare. The final twenty minutes of the film, in which all the stories converge, are well-executed and have an impact. The film’s ensemble cast, which includes Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani, Bhumi Pednekar, Amey Wagh, Sayaji Shinde, Dayanand Shetty, Viraj Ghelani, and Renuka Shahane, maintains your faith in the story.

There are some humorous gags and one-liners, particularly those with Amey Wagh, that make you smile. The Bijli song is energetic, and Ranbir Kapoor’s cameo is invigorating.

What doesn’t work?

The plot of Govinda Naam Mera is rather unremarkable. While the film’s climax is intriguing, director Shashank Khaitan does not create an engaging path leading up to it. His characters are poorly written, as you never find yourself rooting for the protagonist, Govinda. While the humor works in a few scenes, the story lacks the necessary elements to generate frequent laughter.

Some subplots are woven into the narrative to add intrigue, but they serve more as a distraction. The cast is comprised of seasoned actors, but the majority of them are underutilized. The film’s plot is so uninteresting that nothing occurs in the first half, and the suspense element only begins at the halfway point. Govinda Naam Mera is a film in which, scene after scene, you anticipate some conflict, but the conclusion of each sequence leaves you wanting more. For the conclusion to be effective, the plot required more intense conflicts and funnier humor.


Govinda Naam Mera is Vicky Kaushal’s first foray into what could be termed a commercial comic thriller, and the actor performs admirably in the role of Govinda, despite appearing awkward in a few shots. Vicky could feel at home in the space of commercial Hindi film melodramas with the right film. Kiara Advani’s performance in the film is exceptional and unquestionably sets her apart from the rest. The entire scene depicting her incarceration is one of the best in the film. Bhumi Pednekar performs admirably as a domineering wife, but the character lacks enough nuances. As a lawyer, Amey Wagh is a hoot, and some of his antiques remind us of Ritesh Deshmukh from the world of Housefull. Viraj Ghelani is respectable, whereas Jeeva’s over-the-top musician character has some hilarious moments. Renuka Shahane, Sayaji Shinde, and Dayanand Shetty are all squandered. Ranbir Kapoor’s cameo is charming.

Final Conclusion

The plot of Govinda Naam Mera is rather unremarkable, and nothing really comes together until the final twenty minutes, which contain some unexpected turns. The film attempts to achieve balance by combining the worlds of commercial comedy and dark comedy, but ends up being neither.
