Gogola is a Bollywood monster film from 1966 based on another monster film, Gojira. It is suspected to be the only monster movie to come from Bollywood.
The movie starts with a group of teens seeing the titular monster and running to the police, who refuse to believe them. No one listens to them until the monster comes ashore and destroys a city. Nothing can stop it, and it trashes the city before going back to the sea. A scientist discovers a poison that can destroy the monster and goes against the wishes of his lover to kill it. His rival follows him and kills him, planning to steal the fame and the girlfriend. Gogola kills him before succumbing to the lethal poison.
