Daddy Cool - Movie Review

Cast :: Sunil Shetty, Aarti Chhabria, Aashish Chaudhary, Tulip Joshi, Aaftab Shivdasani, Javed Jaffrey, Kim Sharma, Sophie Choudry, Rajpal Yadav, Chunky Pandey, Suhasini Mulay, Vijay Patkar, Prem Chopra, Vrajesh Hirjee.

The remake may not necessarily be as exciting as the original ones. That's what you recognize when you watch the Hindi version of DEATH AT A FUNERAL called DADDY COOL. Sadly, DADDY COOL is just not cool. There are plenty of reasons why..

First, this supposedly laugh riot fails to tickle your funny bone, excepting in a scene or two.

Second, the concept is more suited for a play. Setting an entire film on one location, with the story taking place in a span of a few hours, is not too electrifying.

DADDY COOL tries so hard to make you laugh, but falls flat on its face. The adverse part is, comedy in Hindi movies is now relegated to making faces on camera and that's what most actors in DADDY COOL do.

Another thing that goes against the film is its humour. It's stupid and rough. In this film, men roam around either in shirts, showing off their underpants [Chunky Pandey] or stand on a roof with just underclothes [Aftab Shivdasani] or tell people to remove their underclothes so that they can relieve themselves in a toilet [Prem Chopra asks Jaaved Jaffery to do so].

It is not understandable that what kind of comedy is this?

Chaos erupts during the funeral of Douglas [Sharat Saxena] when the grieved mourners are struck by drugs, romance, envy and a outrageous secret, all of which befall the family and friends.

Director K Murali Mohan Rao has directed several attractive films in the past, but what's this? Sure, DADDY COOL has a few entertaining moments, like the one when Rajpal Yadav reveals the secret [that Sharat Saxena was gay and Rajpal and he were lovers], but the remaining sub-plots fail to cut ice. Adding multiple sub-plots is fine as long as each sub-plot has something interesting to say, but that is what missing in the movie. Even the end is so bizarre, with members of this detached family suddenly professing love for one another.

There's just one song [Raghav Sachar] at the start [a tuneful number] and one towards the end. Dialogues are strictly okay.

With a weak screenplay on hand, there's not much the actors can do. The ones who try hard and manage are Suniel Shetty, Jaaved Jaffery, Sophie Choudry, Chunky Pandey and Prem Chopra.

On the whole, DADDY COOL fails to deliver what it promises - laughter and entertainment.
