Watch It for Govinda & Kader Khan!
16 August 2011 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

'Coolie No. 1' deserves a watch for the sheer magic of Govinda & Kader Khan. The Supremely Talented Actors, pitch in incredible performances, that stand out.

'Coolie No. 1' directed by David Dhawan, was a Box-Office Smash Hit back in 1995. It's an entertaining film, that is worth your time. A Story about complications within a few people, unfolds on screen, with some really entertaining moments.

The Writing Material is up-to the mark, while the Dialogue are excellent. Dhawan's Direction is nice. Cinematography & Editing are decent. Music by Anand-Milind & Shyam-Surender, is foot-tapping. Performance-Wise: Govinda & Kader Khan, as told, deliver incredible performances. And even their on-screen chemistry, is top-notch. Sadashiv Amrapurkar & Shakti Kapoor are funny, as well. Karisma Kapoor is passable. Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Harish, Kanchan & Mahesh Anand lend good support.

On the whole, A Must See for Govinda & Kader Khan devotees!
