Daddy Cool Hindi Movie Review

Feature Film
Daddy Cool is a dud, a B-grade film that doesn't deserve a watch, neither in theatres nor on DVD.

Directed by K Murali Mohan Rao and starring Suniel Shetty, Ashish Chowdhry, Aftab Shivdasani, Aarti Chhabria, Tulip Joshi, Javed Jaffrey, Kim Sharma amongst others; Daddy Cool is an agonizing and disastrous desi remake of the satirical Hollywood film Death At A Funeral. With a shoddy plot and runtime of 1hr and 15min, the film is all about the atrocious affairs of a funeral house.


The first half of the movie is spent with the arrival of family and friends. While things get messy with each arrival, the worst is on when a friend reveals a dark secret about the deceased. Post interval portions are all about resolving the issues and finally paying respect to the deceased.


The movie falls flat beginning with the initial reels. Basically, the setting and the story is not suited for our tadka desi audience. The film is an exact replica and fails miserably to deliver even a tad bit of hilarity or entertainment of the original. Adding to the pain of a sloppy story are the pathetic performances by the character actors. While they try extremely hard to evoke laughter, they probably succeeded a couple of times, but that's about it.


Suniel Shetty tries hard, but fails. Jaaved Jaffery is good at times. Among the rest of the cast, some have nothing to do, others who have, ham!


Overall Daddy Cool is a dud, a B-grade film that doesn't deserve a watch, neither in theatres nor on DVD.
