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)

Damn funny! Go watch it!
1 December 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

De Dana Dan is one of the finest comedies in recent times, we all know Priyadarshan is an expert on the field of comedy, this movie belongs to his top movies next to Hera Pheri, Hungama and Garam Masala.

The movie started off on a hilarious note, continued to the climax in a hilarious way, and ended in a perfect typical Priyadarshan way! I always liked Sunil Shetty and know he is very underrated, Akshay Kumar and Sunil were both outstanding, and delivered rib-tickling performances.

The supporting cast is excellent, Paresh Rawal, Asrani, Johnny Lever, Shakti Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Sharat Saxena.. everyone! Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy didn't really have much scope, or funny scenes..

Plusses : Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Johnny Lever, REALLY funny moments and a few nice songs.

Minus : The songs pop out of nowhere, but we are kind of used to that with Priyadarshan aren't we?

Go for it, you won't be disappointed!
