direction and technical side
During the promotion of “Govinda Naam Mera” it was said many times that this film is an experiment.. because a murder-mystery has rarely been served in this way. However, director Shashank Khaitan tries his best to deliver a nice spicy story here but fails to impress. The film takes so long to reach its height that by then you are full of boredom. The first half passes at a very slow pace, where neither the connection with the character nor the screenplay is felt. The pace picks up in the second half. Some twists and turns work. But going till the climax, the film once again reaches the slope. Some thrill works in the film, but completely disappoints in terms of comedy. Charu Shree Rai’s editing is very average or can be said to be bad. Many scenes seem repetitive, cuts are clearly visible in the scene. At the same time, the music of the film also bores.
Talking about acting, Vicky Kaushal and Kiara Advani complement each other. Their effortless chemistry is palpable, while Bhumi Pednekar as the boss lady expected better. She stays with almost a single gesture for as long as she is in the entire film. Vicky Kaushal has handled the rest of the film, where he falls completely flat when it comes to comedy. There is also some lack of dialogue here. Rarely does a comic line tickle your fancy in this film. Renuka Shahane as Vicky Kaushal’s mother, Amey Wagh as a lawyer and Viraj Ghelani as Bhumi’s boyfriend have done well.
On the whole, “Govinda Naam Mera” is one film that will leave you disappointed if you sit down to watch it with high expectations. In terms of suspense and thrill, the film may get a few marks, but it completely disappoints in comedy. 2.5 stars to “Govinda Naam Mera” from Filmbeat.
