Bhagam Bhag: The new era of Akshay Kumar and Govinda and my view

Bhagam Bhag is a comedy movie. Directed by Priyadarshan, Bhagam Bhag stars three popular Bollywood actors.

The actors and actresses who worked in Bhagam Bhag are- Govinda, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Tanushree Dutta, Rajpal Yadav, Shakti Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, and Maushmi Udeshi. In the movie, Akshay Kumar played the character of ‘Bunty’ and Govinda ‘Babla.’

In Bhagam Bhag, Akshay Kumar and Govinda played the role of theatre actors. They perform in various countries around the world. In Bhagam Bhag, they played the characters of bad people. They always flirt with Tanushree Dutta, a beautiful actress who works in their group. The group was supposed to perform at a show in London. Everything was final but then Tanushree Dutta leaves the group after Akshay Kumar behaved badly with her. The group went to London without Tanushree. After arriving in London, Akshay Kumar and Govinda go out in search of an actress for their group. This starts a series of hilarious events in the movie.

In Bhagam Bhag, Akshay Kumar and Govinda performed very well. Other actors also played their part very well. The movie was shot in abroad.

Songs are the part and parcel of Hindi movies. Bhagam Bhag came with some fabulous music tracks. Out of them, two songs were very much enjoyable. They are: ‘Signal’ and ‘Tere bin.’ ‘Signal,’ which was sung by famous Indian pop singer Remo Fernandes is a comedy song. It was picturised on Tanushree Dutta, Akshay Kumar, Govinda and Paresh Rawal. The other song, ‘Tere Bin’ was a romantic number with hummable music and great lyrics. ‘Tere Bin’ went on to become the most popular song of the movie.

Govinda: Govinda has been acting in Hindi movies since 1986 and one of the most successful actors of Bollywood commercial cinema. He can play any type of role. Her acting talent and immense popularity has enabled him to continue acting with actors who are very younger than him. It is a great ability and an evidence of the Govinda’s supreme acting capacity. Almost all his movies did great business in India. His debut movie, Ilzaam (1986) had a huge success in the box office. His latest movie, Money Hai Toh Honey Hai was released in 2008.

Akshay Kumar: Though he is junior to Govinda, his on screen performance is the biggest proof of his acting talent. Akshay Kumar rose to fame in the 90s as an action hero in Bollywood but later he switched to romantic and comedy movies and found success at the box office.

One of the major weaknesses of Bhagam Bhaag is its non sense climax. Since it was a comedy movie, people enjoyed it very much.
