Vicky Kaushal-led Govinda Naam Mera trailer is out. Disney+ Hotstar dropped a musical trailer for the upcoming tale of a small-time dance choreographer who becomes a murder suspect when his abusive wife’s antics get too far. Shashank Khaitan, who rose to prominence with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, is writing and directing the film under Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions banner. Curiously, the film was originally marketed as part of Amazon Prime Video’s lineup in April and has now changed hands to Disney+ Hotstar. Govinda Naam Mera is out on December 16 on the platform.
The Govinda Naam Mera trailer opens with our titular character (Kaushal) dreaming of his colleague/girlfriend Suku (Kiara Advani) with whom he hopes to spend his life. That fantasy is soon shattered when his wife Gauri (Bhumi Pednekar) kicks him awake to attend to the ringing doorbell and treats him like some sort of loser. The already dysfunctional relationship only worsens when Govinda is introduced to his wife’s unnamed boyfriend, played by Viraj Ghelani (Little Things). Tired of the constant bickering and his hypocrisy when it comes to extramarital affairs, he begs Gauri for a divorce, only to be met with a pat reply, “You want a divorce, don’t you? Give me Rs. 2 crores and get what you will have.” It turns out that Govinda is already deeply in debt and on the verge of losing his house.
Midway through the Govinda Naam Mera trailer, our lead snaps and pulls out a gun with the intent to kill. “Hey Manju, please don’t scream,” she tells the panicked housekeeper. “He doesn’t have the guts to shoot me.” Although not explicitly shown, the trailer suggests that Govinda was successful in his act, albeit not at the exact moment, prompting the housekeeper to inform the local cops. Dayanand Shetty (CID) plays the senior officer who takes charge of the investigation and locks up both Govinda and Suku even though he has been unable to locate the body. “Everybody knows about the murder, except the police,” he says directly to the audience. “How sad.”
Production on Govinda Naam Mera began in March 2021 after Kaushal replaced Varun Dhawan (Bhediya) in the Karan Johar-produced film. Filming had to be halted for several weeks in April when leads Kaushal and Pednekar tested positive for COVID-19. At the time, the film was reportedly called Mr. Lele.
Govinda Naam Mera premieres on December 16 on Disney+ Hotstar.
