New Delhi: Govinda Naam Mera, which released on the streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar, has all the trappings of a quintessential Bollywood entertainer. There is drama, comedy, song and dance, and a murder mystery element as well. From the trailer to the songs, fans have been hooked on what the movie and the lead actors Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani and Bhumi Pednekar have to offer. For the unversed, the film stars Vicky Kaushal as Govinda Waghmare, a broke background dancer who is married (to Bhumi) – who cheats on him and occasionally beats him up. He is also in love with a fellow background dancer played by Kiara. How this motley crew gets mixed up in a murder forms the crux of the story.
