David Dhawan is credited as the king of spice films. His films are aimed at audiences who crave for entertainment. In fact, except for a few exceptions, most of his films have made the audience smile and their producers and distributors laugh all the way to the bank. His success rate is, without a doubt.
That’s why his 45th directing venture COOLIE NO. Look forward to 1. However, this time, Dhawan Sr is competing with himself. 25 years ago, in 1995, he helmed a film starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor – not just for his humor, lyrics and drama, but for everything he loved. This is a film that is still fresh in our minds. Naturally, when he attempts to make a remake of the very-specifically entertainer, the updated version is minimally judged, perhaps with a magnifying glass.
Let’s get to the point. COOLIE is the updated / reboot version of NO. 1 equally entertaining? Comparison is inevitable. If Dhawan fights the scene, critics of the armchair will tear the updated version apart, while son Varun Dhawan – who reprises Govinda’s character – will severely step back to step into the shoes of a highly talented actor.
Be foreboding COOLIE NO. 1 is strictly for those who entertain mad. With a hunger for films that defy logic, motive and intelligence. The fungus is crystal clear: entertainment. make you laugh. To take you to a different world. The trailers expected us and prepared about COOLIE NO. 1 live up to those expectations.
Brief plot [no spoilers here]. COOLIE NO. 1 Coolie / Coolie tells the story of Raj [Varun Dhawan], Who falls in love with Sara [Sara Ali Khan]. However, his father [Paresh Rawal] Extremely curious that she marries a millionaire. Porter pretends to be a tycoon, but the cat soon gets out of the bag. What will happen next?
This is Dhawan Sr.’s updated version of COOLIE NO. 1 , Which in turn, was a remake of the Tamil film CHINNA MAPILLAI . The Dhawan scene retains the essence of Hindi origins – including some chartbusters – but is sprinkled with some fresh punches to suit the current times.
Like most Dhawan scene movies, COOLIE NO. 1 is a cheerful one who suffers from many humiliating situations. More of a fun-fest aimed at pleasing the hardcore public. The punches may sound blunt, but what works is the chemistry between Varun and Paresh that is the main reason why the proceedings work for the most part.
Additionally, actors who appear on the trip [Johny Lever, Jaaved Jaaferi, Rajpal Yadav] Increase in funny moments. On the other hand, some sequences appear forced and can be stopped. Especially at the beginning of the second hour.
COOLIE NO.1 QUIZ- Varun Dhawan vs Sara Ali Khan – PAISA VASOOL fight Govinda David Dhawan
Dhawan Sr is in a familiar area, so not much is in the attempt to fix it. The writing is unique. Also, funny one-liners make sure you have a constant smile on your face. The soundtrack is energetic and the idea is to retain the original songs of the 1995 film [‘Mirchi Lagi To’, ‘Husn Hain Suhana’] Is a master stroke, as these are timeless tunes.
Varun is easily seen in the character. The role demands that he play in the gallery and follow the actor dictate. The act can be loud and at times, he can avoid limitations, but it works well in a film of this genre. Paresh Rawal is being matched by Varun, which is an absolute pleasure to watch. In fact, the comic timing of the two actors is superb.
Sara Ali Khan has limited scope to prove her credibility. He is decent. Ditto for Shikha Talsania. Supporting characters – Sahil Vaid, Johnny Lever, Javed Jaffrey, Rajpal Yadav and Manoj Joshi – fit their parts brilliantly.
Overall, COOLIE NO. 1 is a typical David Dhawan entertainer – crazy, outrageous and over the top – but funny and entertaining. Sit back and enjoy this ride!
