Mr. Kulmeet Makkar, CEO, BIG Music & Home Entertainment, said, “Daddy Cool’s music is fast gaining popularity with audiences. The songs in the album are peppy; something that is loved by all generations and I’m sure RCom subscribers will enjoy greater interaction with the movie and music.”
Directed by K Murali Mohan Rao, the multi-starrer Daddy Cool is a comedy of errors. Raghav Sachar’s groovy and foot-tapping compositions have added zing to the music album from the stable of BIG Music.
With its hilarious plot, cheeky characters, and groovy music, Daddy Cool is sure to make waves among the Indian film-going audience. The film is about the funeral of a Goan named Douglas Lazarus, and the proceedings is not at all demure – the coffin makers deliver the wrong body; the dead man’s elder son Steven (Suniel Shetty) attempts at an eulogy which includes the description of the rivers in Goa; the younger son Brian (Ashish Chowdhry) who isn’t willing to take care of his widowed mother for the sake of his pet dogs; an insecure Nancy (Aarti Chhabria) who is Steven’s wife; a proud Mrs Lazarus (Suhasini Mulay) who doesn’t consider herself widowed yet. Then there is a doped and nervous Michael (Aftab Shivdasani); expressing his love for Maria (Tulip Joshi); her junkie brother (Chunky Pandey); a knife-wielding suspicious Jenny (Kim Sharma) who finds her husband Carlos (Jaaved Jaaffrey) pleading forgiveness from hot model Ayesha (Sophie Choudry). Confusions and misunderstanding galore, Daddy Cool is sure to tickle your ribs. Log onto www.daddycoolthefilm.com for more information.
