Storyline

Wealthy Goa-based Income Tax Officer Douglas Lazarus passes away after exercising on his treadmill at a speed of 10.5. A funeral is arranged, relatives are notified, and his eldest hen-pecked son, Steven, prepares a farewell speech while most attendees would have preferred the second son, Brian, a successful Mumbai-based writer, to do so. At the funeral, things hilariously spiral out of control when Michael, the fiancé of Douglas' gorgeous niece, Maria, notices movement within the coffin. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

This is an awful comedy

Daddy Cool, directed by K Murali Mohan Rao, is a crude remake of the British comedy, Death At A Funeral, but in this film the laughs are hard to come by. The action's centered around a group of assorted relatives and friends who gather at the home of a recently departed chap (played by Sharat Saxena) to bid him a final farewell. But when drugs, sex, and an attempted murder are thrown into the mix, the funeral turns into something of a circus. Daddy Cool recycles many jokes from the original film -- the delivery of a wrong corpse, the inadvertent consumption of party drugs, and the entry of a mysterious stranger bearing a shocking secret -- but between the film's dialogue writers and actors, they manage to serve up every single one of them in a loud, slapstick, crass style. They throw in a few of their own jokes too -- the cat-and-mouse chase between a suspicious, nagging wife and the husband she's convinced is fooling around behind her back; also the track involving the voluptuous model hunting down the man she's agreed to sleep with in exchange for an advertising contract -- but these gags are clichéd and not very smart at all. 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.It's a dead duck of a film that ought to be promptly buried just like its protagonist.
