The era of the 90s was a special time for the Hindi film industry as well as Bollywood fans due to the hardworking actors and filmmakers. The popular faces took Bollywood to a whole other level of fame and reputation. Among those actors, Govinda was the one with the knowledge of wit that converted a regular audience into his die-hard fans. In 1995, His Coolie no 1 movie was a huge success for Hindi cinema because of its comedy genre and the acting skills.
Now, the director of Coolie no 1, David Dhawan recreated the fun and humor by making the sequel of the film. Besides the name, every element including cast, setting, and scene sequencing is supposedly different for the 1st version of the film. In the new Bollywood movie Coolie no 1, David’s son, Varun Dhawan is replacing Govinda and playing the lead hero.
Director David Dhawan made plenty of films with the famous male and female actors of Bollywood.

For instance he recently made Judwaa 2, in which the hero was his son Varun who replaced Salman khan. Judwaa 2 was ranked among the highest-grossing films of 2017.

Plot and characters of Govinda’s Coolie No 1
The movie was a combination of action, comedy, and love that involved Govinda as the hero and Karishma Kapoor as the heroine. Govinda was a Coolie (laborer) by profession who started to live a double life to marry the love of his life. To do so, he had to look rich; consequently, he pulled favors through his peers to look like a filthy rich landlord and finally married the girl. However, he faced difficulties and challenges to keep his dual identities hidden. Ultimately, Karishma’s father found out the truth about the hero’s real profession.

Criticism Against The Movie And Actors
The viewpoints of the audience are the way to understand their thoughts regarding any piece of work whether it is a movie, drama, painting, or even a person’s voice. In the case of this new Bollywood movie, which is not really new several opinions also depict negative contemplations regarding the film but mostly the actors.
Today, almost every person is familiar with the term nepotism. Seemingly, some entities aren’t a fan of Dhawan’s due to their alleged link with the favoritism or nepotism in the industry. People supposedly assume that Varun is the byproduct of nepotism and Mr. senior Dhawan doesn’t give others a chance in movies. Varun Dhawan is known for many films including Main Tera Hero, Student Of The Year, Street Dancer 3D, and many more. On the contrary, as per the critics, Coolie no. 1 is only a platform to make to Junior Dhawan a star above all. Some think, that David casts his son when there are no movies that Varun is eligible to do. Not just him but Sara Ali Khan is also facing negativity for being Saif Ali Khan’s daughter.
Bollywood does face huge criticism for promoting nepotism but it doesn’t impact the viewership of the movies, since the audience usually goes for what entertains them.
