Gobinda is the tertiary antagonist of the 1983 James Bond film Octopussy. He is Kamal Khan's primary and most loyal henchman.

He was portrayed by Kabir Bedi.

Role

When 007 defeats Kamal in a game of backgammon, Gobinda crushes the dice with his bare hands (kind of like Oddjob crushing the golf ball with his bare hand you know). Then later, Gobinda and Kamal's other henchmen chase Bond and Vijay through the streets of Delhi driving Tuk - Tuks and tries to shoot 007 and Vijay but fails in doing so. Gobinda acts as Kamal's sidekick and security and knocks out Bond, in his hotel room, after Magda seduces him and steals the real Faberge egg. Gobinda takes 007 to Kamal's home, where 007 finds out that Kamal Khan is working with Orlov.

Later, Gobinda fights Bond on Octopussy's train in Germany, but fails in killing him when Bond falls off the train. He notices 007 when they are leaving the circus and informs Kamal, who says to let 007 keep going and that he'll soon die by the explosion. 007 and Octopussy manage to deactivate the bomb and return to India to attack Kamal Khan. During the assault on and in Kamal's palace, Octopussy gets captured by Kamal and Gobinda, who escape the palace and into a plane.

007 follows them and jumps on the plane and disables one of its engines. Kamal then orders Gobinda to go out where 007 is and kill him. Even though Gobinda is scared to go out, he does so, but ends up falling to his death when 007 knocks him off the plane.
