The first reaction after looking at the trailer of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan’s ‘Coolie No 1’ is ‘Over-the-top’. The trailer is filled with rich locations, loud comedy, Sara’s irresistible glamour and Varun’s artificial performance. The film directed by David Dhawan is releasing on 25th December on Amazon Prime Video.
The is a remake of old Govinda’s super hit film and David Dhawan decided to remake it with his son. Varun became already acted in remakes and scored hits like ‘Main Tera Hero’, ‘Judwaa 2’ and others. The story of ‘Coolie No 1’ is too silly as a railway coolie falls in love with a rich girl whose dad aims to marry her to a richer businessman. The confusion comedy filled with double meaning dialogues and slapstick humour might be liked by some but not everyone.
The only saving grace apart from its richness is Sara Ali Khan’s stunning glamour. She looks absolutely gorgeous in trendy outfits and sizzles in skimpy beachwear on multiple occasions during the course of the trailer. It is better not to talk about her acting skills. On the whole, ‘Coolie No 1’ which happens to be David Dhawan’s 45th film is too loud, silly and gets on your nerves. It is a good thing that the film is releasing in the OTT platform.
