Coolie No. 1 Review
Remakes in Bollywood are no surprise. From recreating the 90s magic to revisiting South cinema, Bollywood continues to mint money from this formula. Even though many of you might not be happy about COOLIE NO. 1 REVIEWthis strategy, I don’t have any problem. However, when I look at the number of hits Bollywood has had from such reincarnations, I become disappointed.
In my opinion, I see Bollywood getting crushed under the pressure of recreating the magic. Although there are a few instances where they outshine the ratio of “getting crushed under pressure.”
In one of such attempts, Amazon Prime took the responsibility of releasing David Dhawan’s Coolie No. 1. And unlike its original, the movie has broken all records of disappointment. Starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, the movie is a huge disaster on many levels. Let’s find out why?
Why Coolie No. 1 is a disaster?
I am starting with this as my first question with a very heavy heart – all thanks to the ruthlessly rubbish storyline and unbearable dialogues. When the world is driven more towards the reality of life, the Dhawan group has brought the most unrealistic and unfunny comedy. Unlike the original, the 2020s Coolie No. 1 has everything that no one would want to see.
Why is Coolie No. 1’s story broken?
The Dhawan squad is known to deliver some of the evergreen comedies. But the squad is forgetting something that time is changing. Gone are the times when adding songs between scenes used to work like a charm. Fortunately, the Indian audience is growing and has reached the point of self-realization. Plus, it’s high time that we Indians stop encouraging such shitty content. No offense to Dhawan style of film making, but I think even the professional need to revise.
What are those things that made Coolie No. 1 fail miserably?
I can quote many, but I will keep it limited because of humanity!
The movie is about a pundit who cannot withstand the insult by a father of two daughters. To teach him a lesson, he finds a coolie and makes him appear like a millionaire. Got bored, right? The storyline is already shouting, “I used to work back in 90s, please don’t ruin me in 2020.”
Next is the way this story is painted on the screen. See, having the all-time best actors of Indian cinema doesn’t guarantee that it will rock the boats for the audience. Your content must carry some weight to perform.
With a very stellar cast of comedians, the dialogues given to them were outdated and unfunny. And why is Rajpal Yadav stammering? There is no need. The man is capable enough to make the audience laugh via his acting, but no. Sad to see such a talent getting wasted.
Finally, Sahil Vaid is wow, man. He looked best while playing the supporting role for Varun in Humpty Sharma Ki Dhulania, and he looked okay in Coolie No. 1. I guess it’s the unfunny style of presenting this movie that became the reason for its downfall.
And hey, let’s not go there to what was Sara Ali Khan doing in the movie? It was like watching Kiara Advani in Laxmii.
Is Coolie No. 1?
Yeah, but from the negative side of the scale. Instead of wasting your time on Coolie No. 1, switch to AK vs. AK. And start your new year the jhakkas way. Another recommendation from my end is Wonder Woman 1984 and Soul by Disney Pixar.
