Storyline

Singapore-based Nitin Bankar's education was paid for by his employer, Kuljeet Kaur, and he, after the passing of his father, works as an unpaid maid-chauffeur for her until such time he pays off whatever she had spent. He is in love with gorgeous Anjali Kakkad but her father refuses to give his consent for this alliance. Desperate to get out of this situation, Nitin attempts suicide, albeit in vain, and then cooks up a scheme to abduct Kuljeet's pet, Mulchand, demand a hefty ransom, and then marry Anjali. He seeks assistance from his equally deadbeat-courier deliveryman, Ram Mishra, who wants to wed tall and pretty Manpreet Oberoi, and both book a room in Pan Pacific Hotel. However, Murphy's Law and a host of assorted characters get involved - resulting in hilarious and uncontrollable chaos. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Hilarious slapstick
22 October 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Most people say this is stupid movie making with no story and a rubbish movie, that is simply not true.

This movie does have a story, a smart one at that also. Most people say it doesn't, what were you people doing when the movie was playing its a simple story and a different from all the other comedies we've been seeing.

The songs were pretty good even thought they were just chucked in but its PRIYADARSHAN so we know stupid stuff will be happening

Priyadarshan does a good job at directing. There are so many characters in one hotel about 26 and he manages to make them all have a fair part in the movie.

The performances were awesome Akshay was fantastic his face expressions to the way he talks is hilarious. Suneil does very good too and makes us laugh. Everybody else does a great job to making it more hilarious

In the end de dana dan is a slapstick comedy that does make you laugh. I don't know what people were expecting that made it a let down. Of course it not 3 idiots but as far as slapstick's go it is funny unlike a lot coming out recently like Rascals. So leave your brains behind and go watch this crazy and hilarious comedy.
