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)

Dreadful
20 June 2011 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

De Dana Dan directed by Priyadarshan is awful!

This Comedy movie turns out to be a horror one.Seriously! You actually tend to cry not because of the jokes but because you have wasted your time and money on this movie.

The only thing that made me smile in this movie was Johnny Lever.He simply is mind-blowing!

Talking about the story,was there supposed to be a story? Screenplay is penned very bad.

The music is below average Performances-Johnny Lever is the star of the show!Akshay Kumar is okay.Suniel Shetty is average,Katrina Kaif is fair.Sameera Reddy is bad. Asrani is plain.Chunky Pandey is decent.Paresh Rawal,Vikram Gokhale,Rajpal Yadav,Aditi Govitrikar,Shakti Kapoor,Neha Dhupia,Tinnu Anand,Manoj Joshi,Sharat Saxena and Archana Puran Singh ham.

On the whole,De Dana Dan is a letdown.
