The film stars Vicky Kaushal as Govinda Waghmare, Bhumi Pednekar as Gauri Waghmar (Govinda’s wife), and Kiara Advani as Sukubai Deshmukh, aka Suku (Govinda’s girlfriend).
The film surrounds Govinda, a dance choreographer with a struggling marriage life.
He is always quarrelling with his wife, Gauri.
Gauri demands a sum of 2 crore rupees for the divorce settlement, which Govinda cannot afford because of the ongoing court case with his father’s first wife and her son for his bungalow.
Govinda’s father, Gopi Vishwakarma, had two marriages: Govinda’s mother, Asha (2nd wife), and his first wife was Charulatta Vishwakarma (mother of Vishnu Vishwakarma).
When Gopi died, in his will, he named the bungalow after his second wife, Asha’s name because of which his first wife, Charulatta, and his son Vishnu fired a court case against Gopi and his mother, Asha.
The case went on for 14 years without an outcome.
Govinda and his lawyer friend Kaustubh Godbole were also about to lose the case.
The film showcased that Govinda successfully fooled everyone Suku, Vishnu, Charulatta, Inspector Javed, Ajin Dhankar and his son Sandy.
I’m sure after watching the film. You will have questions like how he fooled everyone and collected 7 cr from Ajit Dharkar and Vishnu.
Because everyone used to think of him as a fool in the film, well have watched the film couple of times, and here is what we understood.
Govinda Naam Mera: How did Govinda collect 7 cr from Ajit Dharkar and Vishnu?
Govinda wasn’t a fool after all because when Gopi and Asha’s wedding pictures were exposed in court, he apprehended that there was some snitch inside the house.
Govinda first suspected Manju to be the snitch when he followed her.
He found out that Suku was also involved and giving Manju money.
At first, he was shocked, but when he started following Suku.
He found out that Suku was with Vishnu from the beginning.
Govinda also identified that the bungalow was never his father’s.
It belonged to Government, and BMC will take it over soon.
Therefore Govinda made a plan; he informed Kaustubh about his mother’s paralysis and then involved Gauri in his plan to act dead.
Plus, he involved Baldev, the life insurance guy, to retrieve Gauri’s insurance money for the faked death.
Then to retrieve 7 crores out of Ajit Dhankar, Sandy and Vishnu, Govinda first lures Sandy in and steals five crores worth of cocaine.
After that, he makes Suku realise that his wife Gauri is dead, and he will bury her in the garden.
In reality, Govinda was buying time so that Suku could stay with vanishing the shreds of evidence of the false murder.
While Suku was busy doing that, Gauri mixed inositol and baby powder to make a false drug and placed it in Sandy’s bag.
Asha was also following Suku while Suku was secretly keeping the evidence of the false murder somewhere safe so that those could be used later on.
But after Suku left that place, Asha burned all the evidence after Suku.
Asha then went to Suku’s home and placed the bag of the false drug.
Govinda and Asha then had to set up Javed.
First, Asha acted as a servant who was in dire need of a job, and by going to Javed’s home, Asha secretly placed the gun that Javed had earlier sold to Govinda and also the packet of 750 gm of original cocaine.
Then Govinda and Kaustubh lured Sandy by giving him another packet containing 750 gm of cocaine in exchange for rupees 5 crores.
So from here, Govinda got the first 5 crores next 2 crores he got from selling his father’s home, which was about to be taken over by BMC, to his stepbrother Vishnu.
Therefore, Govinda successfully retrieved a total of 7 crores, left Mumbai with Gauri Asha and Kaustubh and settled in Goa.
