One liner –> Seriously, was a re-make really needed ??
In terms of acting, Javed Jaffrey is the only one who appears sane.
The story is a mash-up of Dhawan's 90's work and lacks novelty by far. To add to it, the execution is lacklustre.
In terms of acting, the leads — Varun disappoints when he undermines his talent with so-called-massy-movie while Sara
plays the dumb part to the tee.
For a movie in comedy genre, Farhad's humorless writing fails to make caliber actors like Paresh, Johnny and Rajpal to
tickle our bone…
The runtime of 135 minutes too is a drag.
In terms of songs, the team dint spend any effort and simply re-used the old hits of the same movie as is. Way to go !
Overall, stay far far away from this version of coolie.
