How old were you when you knew the lyrics were real partnerThe song “Soni De Nakhre” is “Kehndi pump up the jam…”? The song, just like the movie, is still etched in our memory for more reasons than one.
The partner was musical, stylish, funny and more. Despite being an official remake of the popular Will Smith comedy Hitch, it has been adapted to suit the taste of the Indian audience. She had Salman Khan as love guru and Govinda as his client. She also had fashion icons Katrina Kaif and Lara Dutta, and some pretty cool costumes.
Just before Partner happened, Govinda was trying to get rid of his political image. He had turned to David Dhawan, expressing his desire to return. “David said no movie would be sold just in my name. Govinda said in an interview dated 2019. Partner was a two-hero movie, but no competition emerged as to what the other movie was. Instead, Salman and Govinda had great chemistry going on and each other’s energy bounced back. some.
It was a phase when Govinda did not have much support from the industry. But Salman Khan He came to his rescue, helped him revive his career. “Once I was leaving the set, and randomly, my heart wished. I told Salman ‘I feel like you’re not going to look back after this movie,’ and that’s exactly what happened,” Govinda said.
Jinx-breaking partner Salman and Govinda were facing off at the box office. Partner, at least Salman, put them back in the game. Salman followed her success with Wanted, and the tables turned for him.
But for Salman, facing the camera with Govinda It was a dream come true and a scary one. “It’s a story of love and flattery with Govinda. How much comedy can you do when you work with him? I was terrified of being on screen with Govinda for the first 17 years of my life,” Salman said in a throwback interview.
The partner was perfect for Bollywood. Salman agrees, too. According to him, it was all about comedy and dance, the two strengths of Govinda.
Partner is shown Salman as Casanova, while Govinda is a self-confident maniac, who approaches the love guru to impress his lady, who played Katrina in his boss. This was another problem. Salman and Katrina have already made the hit movie Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya. They were a fan-favorite couple, and people wanted to see more of their onscreen chemistry. But in Partner, she was cast opposite Govinda and Lara Dutta was paired with Salman.
Partner was more David Dhawan’s urban story. It was also among his last songs. It had releases like Do Knot Disturb, Main Tera Hero, Judwaa 2 and Coolie No 1 in later years, but none of them managed to leave a mark like their previous movie.
The partner was a plus for all the cast as well. She enhanced Katrina and Lara’s life and gave a new lease of life Govinda And Salman. Its build may be slow in the first half, but it was a fun center ride. Bhaskar and Prem bhai “Partner-ship” can surely give youItni KochiEven 15 years after release!
