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)

De Dana Dan has it's moments for sure...
16 January 2010 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Priyadarshan's multi-starrer comedy 'De Dana Dan' is a film that you'll remember, not today, but in years to come. Here's way: Zany entertainers like these never get it right at the ticket window or with the film pundits during it's release... But, over the years, it gains a cult following.

'De Dana Dan' is non-stop non-sense with everything going-over-broad. Be it the length, the screaming, the complications, the confusion. 'De Dana Dan' is probably the best example for 'Escapist Cinema', a town where the word logic seems alien. Priyadarshan is a veteran, but his cinema {talking about his super-hits} have always been comedies... so whenever you tune in any hit-flick of this National-Award Winner please leave your brains safely at home.

Coming to Performances: There are almost 25-26 characters in the film, in which each has a character to portray. Surprisingly, all excel in their respective parts. But the ones who stand out are: Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, Archana Puran Singh, Neha Dhupia, Shakti Kapoor, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav & Vikram Gokhale.

'De Dana Dan' is funny, but loud, lengthy & non-sense. Watch this, but don't forget to lock your brains at home.
