Bad Luck Govinda Review

`Bad Luck Govind` - more about pessimism than luck (IANS Film Review )

 Rating: *

How many times have you cursed your luck when things don`t fall into place? Have you ever blown your superstition balloon to such extremes that when it bursts, you have to seek shelter under another superstition - say self-derived lucky numbers?

You bet you have and you do, every day.

This time, while watching Varun Khanna`s maiden Bollywood venture, you are likely to curse yourself for being in the hall.

At a time when small-budget movies in Bollywood are raising hopes of good content-based dramas, “Bad Luck Govind” fails to impress. It has a dry script, exaggerated expressions and a meaningless plot.

Weaved around a down-on-luck young man Govind (Gaurav) from Delhi, who is both compulsive and obsessive in nature, the film is more about his endeavours to be a persistent pessimist than people labelling him a so-called loser.

It starts with Govind introducing himself as the underweight champion of the “bad luck” belt - and it gets worse.

If cows stop producing milk when he passes by, he is the one who is to be blamed. Underworld bookies losing a cricket match or a coma patient skipping his heartbeat all depend on Govind`s presence nearby.

A (not so) hilarious incident with news anchor Mamta (Archana) lands him in Mumbai and his life takes a turn when he collides with six underworld bookies and a nurse (Hrishitaa).

Govind is used by one party to bring ill luck to the other. The mayhem that follows cannot be redeemed even by the use of the Buddhist chant `Nam Myoho Renge Kyo` that means waking up to believe in yourself to change oneself and the world around.

There is very little to say about the heroine, because she is hardly ever on screen for any length of time.

As for the hero, VJ-turned-actor Gaurav`s attempts to perpetually plaster himself with vulnerable looks simply does not work. Even his frequent prefixing of an elongated Delhi-wala “ji” before every utterance seems more of a dialogue reminder than a genuine Delhi accent.

To sit through this, the audience needs all the luck it has.

Bad Luck Govinda Synopsis

Bad Luck Govind is the story of an obsessive, compulsive, down-on-his-luck, young man Govind (VJ Gaurav Kapur), who has somewhat of a mind-blowing disconnect with the higher powers of the universe.

His luck is such that even cows stop producing milk when he walks by a tabela. Even fresh milk instantly curdles when poured into a cup of tea.

A hilarious national incident with news anchor Mamta (special appearance Archana Puran Singh) lands Govind in Mumbai from his native Delhi, where the stage is now set for Bad Luck Govind, when six madcap underworld “bhai” satta bookies (Govind Namdev, Parmeet Sethi, Vrajesh Hirjee, Lalit Mohan Tiwari and Ganesh Yadav) and a gorgeous nurse (Hrishitaa Bhatt), collide - as their collective kismat’s and luck intertwine to explode as well implode in more ways than one can keep count.

What follows, is madness, mayhem and hyper drama as Govind learns to romance life and rediscover faith in the power of positive.
