Coolie No 1 Trailer Reaction: Varun Dhawan Compared to Govinda, Called Out for 'Overacting'
The trailer of Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan's Coolie No.1 was released today. The comedy is a remake of the iconic movie starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor that was released in 1995. The trailer shows Varun in multiple avatars - from trying to recreate Govinda's charm to mimicking Mithun Chakraborty. Some of the original songs have also been included in the remake.
The trailer has sparked off a comparison between Govinda and Varun, and as expected, a section of fans are not impressed. Memes to criticise Varun's performance have surfaced on Twitter already. "My Reaction After watching coolie No 1 Trailer. And Specially Loved to See That Varun Dhavan Did Work on His Overacting To Do More Overacting," tweeted one user.

Trailer seems to be interesting. But at the same time it gives flavour Govinda & Karishma stater CoolieNo1. #SaraAliKhan can’t match to Karishma for sure. #VarunDhawan is also ok but by watching trailer can say @SirPareshRawal Ji steal limelight. #CoolieNo1 #CoolieNo1Trailer pic.twitter.com/Cfdf4coUra— Hitakshi Buch (@BuchHitakshi) November 28, 2020
Some tweets called for a boycott of the trailer over the issue of nepotism. "Boycott #CoolieNo1Trailer to teach the lesson to Nepo kids. The only way to give Justice to SSR. They have also disabled the like and dislike count. This fear is good," read a tweet.

The official synopsis of David Dhawan's 45th film reads: After being insulted by a rich businessman named Rozario, pandit Jai Kishen teaches him a lesson by getting his daughter married to Raju - a Coolie posing as a millionaire. Soon Raju’s real identity is exposed but he cooks up a story of having a filthy rich twin. One lie leads to another and things start to go out of hand.
Coolie No. 1 will premiere exclusively on December 25, 2020 on Amazon Prime Video.
