Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998)

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan


Genre: Comedy/Drama/Action/Romance


Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Govinda, Raveena Tandon, Paresh Rawal, Ramya Krishnan, Anupam Kher


Inspired by the movie, Bad Boys, the movie narrates the antics of two police officers, Pyare Mohan (Govinda) and Arjun Singh (Bachchan). Although the two work in the same department, they despise each other especially because Pyare is in love with Arjun’s sister, Seema (Tandon). A notorious smuggler, Zorawar (Rawal) believes in the idea of eliminating any witness to his crimes and once such innocent by-stander, Neha (Krishnan) witnesses Zorawar kill her friend who was spying on Zorawar’s activities. Having escaped the clutches of Zorawar, Neha flees to the police and takes the protection of duo Anil and Pyaare. In a parallel plot, two small-time crooks, Bade (Bachchan) and Chote (Govinda) escape from prison and start looting and plundering. They soon discover that they look exactly like Anil and Pyaare and start impersonating them to their advantage. The movie is a laugh riot if you are into Govinda and his kind of humour. There are huge plot loopholes everywhere, unnecessary songs and horrible acting all over but yet the movie is hilarious with all credit being given to Govinda and Bachchan. Being the veteran actor that he is, Amitabh Bachchan amazingly pulled off the comedy with Govinda and his eccentric style with ease and never looked out of place. Paresh Rawal too made one of the best sadistic villains I have probably come across. His character had a brilliant mix of humour, cruelty and outright cunningness but was sadly lost in the shadow of the lead duo. One of the best Govinda movies and a must watch for cult followers.
