10 Songs that relive the 'Govinda Era'

MUMBAI: Bollywood in the 90s belonged to flamboyancy, indie music, romance and of course, Govinda. The actor known for his quirky dance numbers with his inimitable rhythm accompanied by his outstanding comic timing gave us a million reasons to remember him forever.

Calling him the Michael Jackson of India might be a tad presumptuous but his supercalifragilisticexpialidocious songs continue to be as evergreen as the ageless star.

Check out our favourite Govinda numbers here.

Akhiyon Se Goli Maray, Dulhe Raja (1998)

Singers- Sonu Nigam, Jaspinder Narula

‘Iske lambe lambe Kale Kale Nagin Se Baal, Rey Jee Ankhiyon Se Goli Marey’

This song can turn any gloomy mood into a jovial one.

Kisi Disco Mein Jaye, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998)

Singers- Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik

‘Meri Ram Kali Mein Tujhpe Dil-O-Jaan Se Marta Hoon, Lekin Ye Sach Hai Tere Bhai Se Darta Hoon’

We bet these lyrics and that tune are something you can't get out of your mind. Keep trying.

Meri Marzi, Gambler (1995)

Singer- Devang Patel

‘Mein Apni Shadi Mein Na Jaun, Meri Marzi, Mein Pairon Se Tabla Bajwaun Meri Marzi’

Those were the early days of rap and this is what you call an attitude-packed song.

Main Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha, Coolie No.1 (1995)

Singers- Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik

‘Mai Toh Raste Se Ja Raha Tha, Mai Toh Bhelpuree Kha Raha Tha, Mai Toh Ladkee Ghuma Raha, Tujhko Mirchi Lagi Toh Mein Kya Karun


Filled with entertainment and hilarious lyrics, this whacky track is a good score to groove on.

What is Mobile Number, Haseena Maan Jaayegi (1999)

Singers: Sonu Nigam, Alka Yagnik

‘What is Mobile Number, What is Your Smile Number, Karni Hai Private Baatein, What is your private number’

A cheesy one, but an addictive ditty from the 90’s that had the dubious distinction of being crowned the song of the millennium. Not by us.

Sona Kitna Sona Hai, Hero No.1 (1997)

Singers- Udit Narayan, Sushma Shrestha

‘Andar Kitni Garmi Hai Bahar Kitni Sardi Hai, Tune Bedardi Meri Halat Kaisi Kardi Hai’

Okay, ignore the lyrics. Focus on the melody.

Sarkaye Lo Khatiya, Raja Babu (1994)

Singers - Kumar Sanu, Sushma Shrestha

‘Sarkaye Lo Khatiya Jaada Lage, Jaade Mein Balma Pyara Lage’

Only Govinda could get away with impunity with such lyrics and dance moves and still not seem vulgar.

Husn Hai Suhana, Coolie No.1 (1995)

Singers: Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Chandana Dixit

‘Husn Hai Suhana Ishq Hai Divana, Roop Kaa Khazana Aaj Hai Lutana Aake Divane Mujhe Seene Se Laga’

Another one where Govinda gets away with borderline lyrics and equally suggestive moves. And you still can't get enough of him.

Ande Ka Funda, Jodi No.1 (2001)

Singer: Pratik Joseph

‘Ande Me Anda Anda, Funde Me Funda Anda, Ande Ka Anda Anda, Funde Ka Funda’

An engaging song that typifies the Govinda sense of comedy.

Aa Aa Ee Oo Oo Oo, Raja Babu (1994)

Singer: Abhijeet Bhattacharya

‘Rooth Ke Na Jao Meri Jaan, Paas mere aao Meri Jaan, Mein Angootha Chaap Padhna Aur

Likhna Jane Na’

Only Govinda could have the guts to captivate girls with these lyrics.
