Storyline

Pandit Shaadiram Gharjore is a village match-maker. When he takes some guy's family to see Malti, Hoshyaarchand (her father) insult the family and throw them out, saying he wants a son-in-law at least 40 times wealthier than he. Panditji is so humiliated that he vows to do something about Hoshyaarchand's ego. This is where the story begins. Panditji goes to his friend, Raju (Coolie No. 1) (who, by the way, has fallen in love with this rich girl since he saw her picture before panditji took the random guy's family to see her), and convinces him to pretend to be the son of the richest man in Asia. After a lot of bootlicking on the part of Hoshyaarchand, Malti and Raju get married. The rest of the film revolves around upholding this bit of deception, and gets quite interesting.... :) Written by Gita Lal <trinetri@i-2000.com>

Truly One of Govinda's best film
27 October 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Coolie no.1 has maintained a good reputation for its comedy till today.Govinda's talents has been completely Utilised by David Dhawan from beginning till end of the movie. A memorable movie of Govinda for his best performance.The movie also has a good story. Govinda was best as Coolie comparing to his other roles.This movie has been an important movie which laid path for his successful career.Govinda cracks best jokes along with the funny Kader Khan .His scenes with Shakti Kapoor are the best funniest scenes in the movie.Of course there was a beautiful chemistry between Govinda and Karisma in this movie.The funniest Dialogues delivered by Govinda in this movie are remembered from kids till old one.Absolutely One of Govinda's best film.
