Trivia

When the film released, there were speculations that it was a sequel to Awara Paagal Deewana, which had almost the same star cast (Akshay, Sunil, Paresh, Johny Lever,Om Puri) - even the font used was same - but that was proved wrong. See more »

Goofs

During the scene when Shahid, Rimii and Akshay meet in Dubai for the first time Akshay's look is inconsistent. In long shots Akshay has a clean shaved short hair look, while in close shots Akshay wears a stubble and his hair is in front of his face. See more »

Quotes

Rocky: [regarding Tanya] First husband. Very good person. Only one bad habit. Smoking. Once, he burnt the cigarette and was blasted.
Murugan: Blasted?
Rocky: He was standing at the petrol pump!

There Is Something About Tanya
26 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Despite being an Indianized version of There Is Something About Mary, DHP is a really entertaining film. So, you get the idea of the story.

Akshay Kumar is really good in the film. Paresh Rawal is also good, but not as much as he was in Awara Paagal Deewana or Hera Pheri. Shahid Kapoor and Rimii Sen give decent performances. Johnny Lever and Vijay Raaz are good in their supporting roles. Good to see Johnny Lever back in his comedic form.

But it is Suniel Shetty who is the surprise packet in DHP. Good see him in a good role. He makes the best use of it. He has plenty of scenes where he manages to raise some of the biggest laughs.

On the whole, DHP is a thoroughly enjoyable entertainer. Good doses of comedy, gloss, music and stunts.
