Jyoti Sharma Bawa | Hindustan Times: - | 2/10
This is not a reboot, it feels like a spoof and it is best not to tamper with nostalgia ... Full Review

Ronak Kotecha | Times of India: 2.5/5 | 5/10
An over-the-top comedy that’s stuck in time. So the only trick to get entertained by this insanity is to admit how loud and pointless it is without comparing it with the original ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 1/5 | 2/10
Not A Patch On Govinda-Karisma's Film. Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan's Coolie No 1 is half-hearted attempt at situational comedy. The remake of the 1995 film of the same name doesn't have similar funny vibes ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 2/10
Offensive And Unfunny. The low IQ humour of the film, will make you cringe ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1/5 | 2/10
Zero wit, no flair. When you see Varun Dhawan, who has channelled Govinda in many of his films much better, tread almost the same path, mouthing almost the same lines, there’s no laughter, only despair ... Full Review

Avinash Ramachandran | The New Indian Express: 2/5 | 4/10
Varun Dhawan tries to salvage a mirthless remake. The premise is the same. The names are almost the same. Heck, even the dialogues are the same. Coolie No 1 has not a single bone of originality that helps it stand apart from the original ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 1/5 | 2/10
The film does not take into account that the world has changed since the David Dhawan-Govinda combo churned out hit after hit with their mad capers ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh | Bollywood Hungama: 3.5/5 | 7/10
COOLIE NO. 1 is a typical David Dhawan entertainer — crazy, outrageous and over the top — but funny and entertaining. Sit back and enjoy this ride! ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2/5 | 4/10
If you’ve to watch it for comical performances, you have many options to choose between; if you’ve to watch it for its story, you have the original ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 1/5 | 2/10
In Coolie No. ItShouldNeverHaveBeenDone, the pace lags, the worn-out formulae are a bore, Dhawan Junior is off colour, Sara Ali Khan is a mere glamorous prop looking bizarre in the kind of outfits that looked awful when Karisma Kapoor wore them in the 1990s and are just as horrendous in 2020 ... Full Review

Tiasa Bhowal | India Today: 3/5 | 6/10
Despite a formidable cast taking the centre stage, filmmaker David Dhawan does little to bring novelty to his story telling and the film loses its charm ... Full Review

Sangeetha Devi Dundoo | The Hindu: - | 2/10
This redux is a tedious watch. Barring nostalgic value, there’s nothing else going for the new version of ‘Coolie No. 1’ ... Full Review

Syed Firdaus Ashraf | Rediff: 1/5 | 2/10
Coolie No 1 is a cheap comedy for silly people. Davidji, please come up with a new script next time! ... Full Review

Ritika Handoo | DNAIndia: 3/5 | 6/10
All in all, watch 'Coolie No. 1' if you really are fans of Varun and Sara - but please remember there's nothing number 1 about it, and the makers did warn you with Mirchi Lagi Toh, Main Kya Karu? ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 2/10
The same, only much worse. David Dhawan's remake of his 1995 hit, starring his son, Varun Dhawan, is missing the only ingredient that matters: Govinda ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 2/10
Even most of the tunes are reworked. If this movie can claim anything as its own, it is the creation of a new philosophical theory. “What is... is what?” says Raju in his nurse avatar – an apt description of this endeavour as well as the larger misguided attempt to remake old favourites ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 3/5 | 6/10
Varun Dhawan-starrer is a paisa vasool entertainer. 'Coolie No 1' is an entertainer that hits the right notes ... Full Review Sonia Chopra | Sify: 1/5 | 2/10
Not funny, not entertaining! The rehashed version of Coolie No 1 is problematic right from the word Go! ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 2/5 | 4/10
David Dhawan's latest directorial Coolie No. 1 turns out to be a weaker twin of the 1995 film. All Govinda fans out there, steer clear of this one! ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 1/4 | 2/10
This needless remake of David Dhawan’s 1995 film is not funny, simply fails to come out of the 'wannabe funny film' zone ... Full Review

Masala: 0.5/5 | 1/10
David Dhawan’s intolerable remake is the final nail in the coffin for Bollywood's 2020 films. In a year that wasn’t short on disastrous movies this one really takes the cake ... Full Review

Binged: 2/5 | 4/10
A Bland Remake With Energetic Lead ... Full Review

Kriti Tulsiani | Zoom TV: 1/5 | 2/10
A lot about Coolie No. 1 feels jaded. Even for those who might want to rely on madcap cinema for a few no-brainer chuckles amid the pandemic, the film's idea seems to be stuck in the '90s with nothing new to offer ... Full Review

IANS | India TV: - | 3/10
Amusing, how you tend to subconsciously recall Govinda in specific scenes as Varun tries repeating random antics. That can surely be the biggest failure for a remake. ... Full Review

Cine Blitz: - | 2/10
In Coolie No. 1 Varun is humiliating himself with poor comic timing, which Govinda never struggled with. Sara Ali Khan reprising the role played by Karisma Kapoor has been reduced to an eye candy in minis ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 0.5/5 | 1/10
Doesn’t Score on Humour, Story or Acting. A copy will always be a copy. Sara is so visibly uncomfortable and out of place that it was a pain watching her ... Full Review

Khaleej Times: 2/5 | 4/10
Varun Dhawan tries to do a Govinda and fails in this unoriginal mess ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 2/5 | 4/10
If you too have nothing to do, watch the film. Otherwise, get into the wi-fi time machine and go revisit the 1995 film ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Varun Dhawan tries hard but the film fails due to lazy writing and some uninspired comic sequences. This one is a lacklustre remake ... Full Review

Ranpreet Kaur | PinkVilla: - | 3/10
Well, if you are a true blue Govinda fan, this movie will leave you miffed. However, if you are looking for some brainless comedy with a touch of Varun Dhawan’s charm, you can watch it at your own risk ... Full Review

Spotboye: 1.5/5 | 3/10
The Dearth Of Humour In This Varun Dhawan-Sara Ali Khan Starrer Will Make You Revisit The Original, Pronto ... Full Review

Peeping Moon: 3/5 | 6/10
Coolie No. 1 could be Santa's Christmas present for you, only if you are an honest VD fan. 'Cause as you know, heaven on the dock man, Varun Dhawan rocks man! ... Full Review

The Hans India: 3/5 | 6/10
Coolie No. 1 movie is a complete entertainer… Being crazy, joy-filled and rib-tickling one, this flick can turn into the best festive treat for all the movie buffs ... Full Review

Meeta Kabra | Wogma: - | 0/10
No, I hadn't expected anything else. Got exactly what I had signed up for and more on each count, misogyny at its worst and more ... Full Review

Now Running: 2/5 | 4/10
Coolie No. 1 is so cheesy that it belongs and should have only belonged to the 1990s. It is a remake of director David Dhawan's 1995 film of the same name. I have not seen that Govinda film, but I could still tell how ludicrous and problematic this Coolie No. 1 is ... Full Review
