Govinda can challenge anybody and share screen with any legend
16 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Great actor, Great performance, Good storyline and Good music.

Govinda is an actor who has got least chance of acting though he is one of the best Bollywood actors and Naseeb is one of few movies in which he got the chance to show his acting and he proved that he is a great actor. No one can beat him in his style of acting. It's unique, only he can do such type of acting.

We know Govinda's acting talent in comedy films. He continued doing comedy films after the success of Aankhen. I think it is very unfortunate thing that actor like him, who can do all type of acting, has wasted in such one type of movies. Though it is always true that David Dhavan has given some very good comedy films with Govinda and we have really enjoyed it but it is also true that we could not get best out of him during all these years. Naseeb, Swarg, Hatya, Shola Aur Shabnam, Kyon Ki Main Jhooth Nahi Bolta, Khuddar, Dulara, Julm Ki Hukumat, Aag and Andolan are some of movies in which we can see different acting shades of Govinda. Unfortunately we could not see his more films of this kind of different roles during all these years.

I am definitely sure in my opinion that if he would have been given chance by top directors of the industry then we would have enjoyed excellent films and performance from Govinda and still if tailor made good roles like Sanjeev kumar are given to him than he can overshadow any actor and rule the film industry. I hope he will come with a bang if we are lucky.

I think one song of this film is really suits with Govinda's film career and also with us. "naseeb main nahi tha jo hamko mila nahi". We can say Govinda could not get what he deserves in terms of films, awards, big banner, top director's support, public recognition etc and that's why we could not get best out of this complete actor till date.

I really like one dialogue of this film spoken by Govinda. "I am a self made man. Mujhe kisi ki jarurat nahi hai-I don't need anybody."

Kadarkhan is one of the good actors in character role and combination of Govinda and Kadarkhan is always good as best in this movie. Music of the film given by Nadeem-Shravan is excellent and has all kind of tastes as sad song, romantic song, duet song and party song with piano makes it perfect album. I have no right to give less than 10 out of 10 to such an excellent performance. My rating to this movie is 10/10.
