The original Coolie No. 1 features Kader Khan, Karisma Kapoor and Shakti Kapoor among others. The film was released in the year 1995 and was successful at the Box Office. It was the remake of 1991 Tamil film Chinna Mapillai. Govinda’s character in the film is a coolie by profession who falls in love with a rich man’s daughter (Karisma Kapoor). The father of the girl (Kader Khan) wants to marry her to a man who’s even richer. Therefore, Govinda lies to the girl and her father that he belongs to a rich family and even owns a grand villa at a posh area in the city. They get married and that’s when the confusions and embarrassment begin.
