Daddy Cool (Hindi)

Cast: Suniel Shetty, Sharat Saxena, , Rajpal Yadav

Director: K. Murli Mohan Rao

When there are more than half a dozen films in a week, some of them are just fulfilling the ritual of release. This is one of those. Inspired by Death At A Funeral, director K. Murli Mohan Rao makes a mockery of the original black comedy and the tradition.

No, one is not conservative; he has simply lost the plot.

The dialogues make you squirm, some of the situations are downright obnoxious and the performances are appalling. A family gets together for the funeral of Douglas (Sharat Saxena).

Except for his elder son Steven (Suniel Shetty) nobody is concerned about the service.

Each one has his own agenda.

After a series of moronic spoofs, things take a turn when an uninvited guest, Andrew (Rajpal Yadav) alleges that he shared a ‘relationship’ with Douglas.

He wants money to keep his mouth shut. We want everybody to follow suit.

Nothing cool about this assembly of fools!

A.K.
