Movie Name: Coolie No 1

Coolie No 1 Cast: Sara Ali Khan, Varun Dhawan, Paresh Rawal, Sahil Vaid, Jaaved Jaaferi, Johnny Lever, Rajpal Yadav

Coolie No 1 Director: David Dhawan

Coolie No 1 has been one of the most talked about movies of the year for obvious reasons. It happens to be the remake of David Dhawan’s 1995 film of the same name wherein Varun Dhawan stepped into Govinda’s shoes, while Sara Ali Khan was seen playing Karisma Kapoor’s role. While there has been a trend of remaking classic movies in Bollywood, there were a lot of expectations from Varun starrer Coolie No 1. Besides given the fact that the Govinda starrer was a slice of life comedy with an irresistible charm, impeccable comic timings, Kader Khan’s stupendous dialogues and natural funny vibe, the expectations were at its peak.

However, Varun and Sara’s Coolie No 1 was a complete disappointment in almost every department without any masala or connectivity. The story of Coolie No 1 remains the same with few changes in the location. This time it is about Rozario (played by Paresh Rawal) a rich hotelier in Goa who ends up insulting matchmaker Jaikishan (played by Jaaved Jaaferi). The latter decides to plan revenge and gets Rozario’s daughter Sarah (played by Sara Ali Khan) to fall in love with coolie Raju (played by Varun Dhawan).

Despite having a legendary star cast, this new generation Coolie No 1 lacks the spark and falls flat when it comes to the fun vibe. David Dhawan has not only remade the story, scenes and dialogues, but he also played with some of the most iconic numbers from the original movie like ‘Husnn Hai Suhana’ and ‘Mirchi Lagi Toh’. Varun Dhawan, who had earlier replaced Salman Khan in Judwaa 2, should realise that he cannot recreate Salman and Govinda’s magic. On the other hand, Sara was a complete disappointment as she tried hard to add the glamour quotient in the movie.

Overall, with dull performances, no Govinda, Karisma, Kader Khan and David Dhawan’s original charm, slapstick humour, this Coolie No 1 is just a burdensome cringe-worthy watch.

Watch it or not? Well, if you are a true blue Govinda fan, this movie will leave you miffed. However, if you are looking for some brainless comedy with a touch of Varun Dhawan’s charm, you can watch it at your own risk.

The movie is entertaining and Varun did a good job. Sara is so terrible. She does not know how to act and dance. The movie could have been better with a good lead actress.

Sara doesn't know how to act and Varun overacts. A great lethal combination.

The movie is entertaining and Varun is good. Loved the performance of Rajpal Yadav. Sara is terrible; a perfect example of nepotism. She can neither act nor dance. Her costumes are terrible.

Varun & Sara both are the most irritating actors. And neither can act. Varun is one of the worst actors , always trying to be in Govinda’a shoe. Can’t even think of watching such a movie.

Half star is Enough. David dhawan should be jail for the movie and both leading actors should ban by the Bollywood

Obviously it was going to be a disaster. You could see that from a mile away. Dumb idea to remake it in first place.

Judwaa 2 was very good and entertaining film. He did complete justice in that film. Coolie no 1 is also full entertainment film. Just treat it like a new film and do not compare with original.

Anonymous 2 months ago

Then what's the point of remake,someone is trying to make a better movie out of the original one and for the movie so we can surely compare.I can assume the movie is bad based on the trailer with bad jokes and with extra added trending fan service
