GOVINDA NAAM MERA is the story of a man in deep trouble. Govinda Waghmare (Vicky Kaushal), a Bollywood background dancer and aspiring choreographer, is unhappily married to Gauri (Bhumi Pednekar). They live in a mansion in the heart of Mumbai but it’s in a legal dispute. Govinda’s father Gopi Vishwakarma… (Wilson Tiger) was married to Charulata (Veenah Naair) and had a son, Vishnu (Akshay Gunawat) down South. But in the late 80s, he came to Mumbai, had an affair with Govinda’s mother Asha Waghmare (Renuka Shahane) and she gave birth to a son (Govinda). He then died, leaving behind the mansion Asha Niwas with Asha becoming the owner. Since then, Charulata and Vishnu are fighting in Court to claim ownership of the mansion. While Govinda is fighting this case on one hand, on the other hand, his marriage is on the rocks. Gauri dominates him and he’s unable to retort. He asks for divorce but Gauri demands Rs. 2 crores that her family had paid Govinda as dowry. Govinda is having an extra-marital affair with Suku (Kiara Advani), who’s also a fellow dancer. Though she loves him dearly, she’s fed up with Govinda’s problems and wants him to leave his wife as soon as possible. Govinda, meanwhile, is fed up with Gauri’s behaviour and he buys a gun for Rs. 2 lakhs from Inspector Javed (Dayanand Shetty). However, he doesn’t have the guts to shoot her. He hasn’t paid Javed the amount to buy the gun and the cop is constantly harassing him over it. At this point, Govinda and Suku get a golden chance of earning Rs. 8 lakhs. They are asked to choreograph a music video for Sandeep Dharkar aka Sandy (Jeeva), the son of dreaded politician Ajit Dharkar (Sayaji Shinde). They agree but the shoot doesn’t go as intended. Ajit is furious and instead of paying them, he asks them to refund him the amount spent on shooting the song, which is a whopping Rs. 30 lakhs! In short, Govinda is in trouble from all sides. At this point, fortune smiles upon him but it also brings with it a share of problems. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
