I was trying to figure out how to round out Govinda week, but I really didn't want to do anything else right now after Hatya. So I thought I'd throw together a few outtakes -- some screencaps from the film that didn't make it into my post, and yet, so deserve a look-see. Also? Still no spoilers -- I carefully left behind some shots (oh, some lovely stuff, too, but that should be even further motivation to go watch the film) which really did give stuff away.
This I took just because it was so beautiful and evocative:
These are for Govinda's Fan Girl No. 1:
(You should see the looks Sapna/Neelam gives him in that scene....)
And I totally forgot to mention that the music was done by the disco-licious Bappi Lahiri, which means we get just the right dose of cracktastic in this film:
(This song is from a dream Sapna has when she realizes she has fallen in love with Sagar. I'm with Sapna, it is *totally* my dream to dance on a giant tabla with Govinda.)
And despite what he says here:
There are fight scenes, and he does beat people up, and the action scenes are So Fine and yet so quick, so this is all you get:
And yet, the film is strewn with scenes so beautiful and tender they make your heart ache:
I truly believe that everyone who watches Salaam-e-Ishq and falls in love with Govinda as Raju Taxiwala should immediately watch Hatya as their second Govinda experience. In fact, I think all copies of SEI should come with a free copy of Hatya, just to ensure they don't have, say Money Hai Toh Honey Hai as the next image of Govinda burned into their brains.
And now, please? Someone? Please give him a wonderful role? Have I not given you enough evidence that he is both capable and worthy?
