Aashiq Abu who has come with the family oriented Daddy Cool with Mammootty as the coolest daddy has met with mixed response from the audiences. While some may like to languish, the rest feel that it has gone a way too overboard. Mammootty has of late been trying to woo those audiences, children for whom innocence is the hallmark.
Mammootty comes across as a crime branch officer, C I Antony Simon who is extremely passionate only about two things in life – his son Aadi (Master Dhananjay) and Cricket. When the superstar decided to grace cricket in this movie, he could have perfected the nuances of game as well. His wife Annie (Richa Pallod) cannot tolerate his lazy approach towards life and often the couple have their own sweet bickerings with the lady of the household packing her bags and walking away to her house, which is apparently the apartment next to theirs.
