One Line Review: If youโ€™re gonna remake something better make it good.

 Coolie No. 1
(2020) on IMDb
YouTube Trailer Coolie No. 1

Starring: Varun Dhawan, Sara Ali Khan, Rajpal Yadav

Director: David Dhawan

Release Date: 25th December 2020



To all the Bollywood guys out there who are responsible for the happening of films: Stop it guys! This remake thing isnโ€™t cool anymore. First Judwaa now Coolie no. 1. If youโ€™re gonna remake something, at least make it better than the original.

The trailer motivated me to stop watching the films and study (probably thatโ€™s why theyโ€™ve removed the like or dislike option).

4/10 from my side. And that’s being generous.


So the plot is thereโ€™s a guy, Raju,ย who is a coolie but posing as a prince to marry a girl whoโ€™s father wants only but a good man and a bright future for his daughter. The father finds out the reality but the guy further adds to the lie that he has a twin brother. So the confusion goes on.

What’s to Like/Dislike?

Everything ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

Is there anything exciting about this story? Like really, even just one thing. No, right? Iโ€™m writing a personal review for this movie but I swear to god there isnโ€™t anything to write about. My mind went blank. Maybe it’s because of the castโ€™s acting (Over-acting).

Varun Dhawanโ€™s constant mimicry of Mithun throughout the whole movie was just gut-wrenching pain. Sara was plain. Period.

Comedy ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

Letโ€™s talk about comedy. Comedy Kaha hai? They ran out of punchlines or what? Thereโ€™s a lot, I mean a lot of nonveg and double meaning references used, which might have been OK if they were funny. Except they were cringy (Like really, How could โ€œMa Ka Ghoslaโ€ be funny?).

The only good thing that happened to this movie is Rajpal Yadav. Respect to that man, who survived under such an undertalented pandemic. Seriously, guys, Rajpal Yadav wasnโ€™t joking around, he meant business.

Farewell Words

Iโ€™m attaching a condition here. If youโ€™ve seen the original โ€œCoolie No.1โ€, then donโ€™t watch this one. Thereโ€™s plenty of disappointment waiting for you. If you havenโ€™t, then you can definitely add this to your watching list, as youโ€™ve nothing to compare it to.

Wonder Woman 1984 is a better option, which Iโ€™ll be reveiwing soon.
