Film Review
De Dana Dan A rib tickling comedy

Starring: Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Katrina Kaif, Sameera Raddy, Paresh Raval, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, Neha Dhupia, Asrani, Johny Lever
Directed by Priyadarshan

Here we have another rib tickling comedy film by Priyadarshan who has given huge hit comedies like Hera Pheri, Hulchal, Bhagam Bhag, Bhul Bhulaiya among the best ones directed by him. De Dana Dan is a fun film with 25 actors in a major situational comedy where there is confusion galore.

Two broke best friends + their rich girlfriends desperate to marry them + the girls' respective fathers desperate to marry them off elsewhere. + a bankrupt businessman who's getting his useless son engaged to every heiress in town to pay off his debts.

Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar

There are also assorted characters like a Chinese don, a hired assassin, a rich selfish lady, an ACB officer, a club dancer, an ambassador, a young frustrated wife, a letch, a drunken waiter, a dead body nobody wants and above all... Moolchandji - the most pampered dog in the world.
These characters enjoy their antics in De Dana Dan...

Akshay Kumar is Nitin. This hard core action hero displays his funny bone along with Ram (Suniel Shetty).

Anjali (Katrina Kaif) is Nitin's girlfriend while Manpreet (Sameera Raddy) is Ram's.

Harbans Chadda (Paresh Raval) is on the run from the ACB. This once rich businessman is heavily into debts, that he is actually auctioning off his idiotic son Noli (Chunky Pandey) to the highest dowry giver. Noli is supposedly a computer engineer who finds himself getting engaged to all the rich heiresses in town to pay off his father's debts.

Kakkad (Tinu Anand) is Anjali's father who was once almost a pauper. Having won a lottery ticket, he is now rich and wants Anjali to marry a rich man - and Nitin certainly does not fit into that category.

Inspector Wilson Pereira (Sharad Saxena) is the ACB officer in Singapore who has been hunting Chadda for long. But never having met him in person, he gets fooled by Chadda over and over again.

Neha Dhupia is a club dancer. Her quick hands match her quick mind as she picks pockets with great style. There is also an Indian Ambassador to Singapore (Vikram Gokhale) who leads a blameless life, till he finds himself cast as an unlikely letch doing unmentionable stuff behind his wife's back!

Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy

Lamba (Manoj Joshi) is one of the richest men in Singapore. Thinking that he's found a fitting match in Noli for his daughter Manpreet, little does he know what a wild ride he's in for. Rajpal Yadav is a waiter who is always drunk. Giving out wrong keys and breaking glasses, he's undoubtedly the most useless waiter. Archana Puran Singh is a rich wicked lady. Nitin works for her... he has to continue working for her till his debts are repaid. The lady boss treats Nitin like a dog and keeps him on a tight leash. It at all she has feelings; they are reserved for her pet dog Moolchandji.

Asrani is the Chinese don. He can kill to order and also deliver dead bodies to order. The trouble starts when somebody orders a dead body but nobody claims it.

Johny Lever is a hired assassin. He is the don's no.1 supari killer who specializes in 'death by accident'. But he too lands in trouble when he gets a wrong photo and tries to kill the wrong man...

Aditi Gowatrikar is Chadda's second wife. She is young and pretty and wants to steal from her husband to run away with her young boyfriend. Shakti Kapoor is letch no.1. Married five times already, whenever he sees a beautiful girl, he either marries her or buys her love. Now a club dancer - Neha Dhupia has caught his fancy...

Throw in a kidnapping, mistaken identities and mistaken room numbers; an assassin on the prowl, a wedding... there’s mayhem all around. The songs Paise Remix and Rishte Naate rendered by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Suzanne Demello are worth a mention.

Multiple stars, multiple madness, even though there are moments of silliness, it is an actually funny movie in most parts. Even if you sneeze, you miss a link. It is one of the funniest movies in recent times.
