Why remake a shoddy, tasteless British comedy? Why be so fixated on Western entertainment when we've so much literary and pulp talent out here?
Just leave aside these vital questions and focus on the ensemble cast of "Daddy Cool" that sparkles with borrowed wit. The Goan setting and the quaint rooms housing distraught emotions keep us smiling.
The setting is a Christian funeral. But at times the funeral jokes have us coughing in embarrassment. The dead man has two sons - a responsible, young bespectacled householder (Suniel Shetty) and a carefree cassanova novelist (Ashish Chowdhary) who flies in jetlagged just in time for daddy's funeral
