If you do find yourself laughing on a few occasions, it’s mostly out of disbelief at just how shockingly bad this film turns out to be. The acting is an assembly line of over-the-top, ham jobs from a cast that is possibly the most ineffective you’ve ever seen. A special mention of Aftab Shivdasani, Chunky Pandey and Vrajesh Hirjee who take the cake for being the most annoying actors on screen.Contrived and unimaginative, this remake pales in comparison to Death At A Funeral. I’m going with half, yes just half out of five for Daddy Cool; it’s a dead duck of a film that ought to be promptly buried just like its protagonist.

The movie’s whacky ensemble includes a struggling writer (Shetty) who is bullied by his wife, a character whose wife suspects he is sleeping around and a cousin whose boyfriend (Aftab) has mistakenly taken hallucinogenic pills. But none of them are as interesting or intriguing as the pint-sized stranger (Rajpal Yadav) who walks in and lovingly fondles the coffin. It is his disclosures that lead to a situational comedy that leaves you with half a smile after the show is over.
Director K Murali Mohan Rao has helmed several interesting 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 fascinating to say, but that’s missing here. Even the end is so bizarre, with members of this detached family suddenly professing love for one another.

Starring some of Bollywood’s most reliable funny men, Daddy Cool is endurable upto the interval. Half way through the film you feel it’s like any other mundane comedy that’s okay while it lasts. But the quality of houmour goes horribly down hill with every passing minute in the second half.What works as a s** comedy in one languge, needn’t be equally funny in another. This movie is totally uncool.
