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.

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.
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
Katrina Kaif and Sameera
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
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
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.
