Yet another fantastic movie by Akshay Kumar that made me laugh??
August 22, 2016
De Dana Dan might have a big list of actors in it, but it utilizes all of them equally and shows how a great comedy movie should be like.

Funny in some parts but overall a pretty lame plot. The songs are terrible...

Quite a funny comedy to be fair

As funny as Phir Hera Pheri, not as funny as the original Hera Pheri (same director) , but still brings you a lot of laughs! All it needs to it, is a better script, and it would be a mass entertainer!

Recommended!
Verdict = Semi Hit

Completely incomprehensible storyline, but a stellar cast of Bollywood's comedians keeps the slapstick hilarious and watchable.

Akshay Kumar if he starts making any more faces then, he can well be named the Indian Jim Carrey, specially the Masked version. Suniel Shetty and Sameera Reddy are a perfect match, well built, rounded, grounded, have the accent, both come from down South; why didnt someone think of them earlier. On Katrina, i believe movies are being re-scripted and the dialogues are re-written and probably even the locations are more foreign or foreigner dominated once this lady signs on (also observed in Ajab Prem Ki..).

The story like any typical Priyadarshan movie the comedy ones (Hungama, Hulchul, Hera Pheri) where you know due to a lot of confusion there will be a lot of commotion because of lack of communication between all the characters. Ok, this is the same Priyadarshan who has also made the Kala Pani and other award winning movies. But then coming back to his comedy version, its starts with two characters Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty and then the girlfriends are introduced Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy respectively. Then parents and some bosses, killers, dancers, hookers, waiters, and the list will continue... are brought into the picture. Then there is lot of money at stake, there is a kidnapping, and then all are put together all under one roof the Pan Pacific Hotel in Singapore. 1000 times they should the name of the Hotel where they were staying, how can one forget?

I am glad that there are so many actors in the movie, so Akshay doesnt dominate the screen so much. The other Johnny Lever who tries to play a hitman; Rajpal Yadav who is a corrupt waiter; Manoj Joshi - father of the bride; Neha Dhupia hot headed hooker, who cares only about the money - these actors are quiet commendable. Paresh Rawal is wasted in the movie.

Once in the movie, sometimes you feel it becomes a drag; sometimes you feel too many songs. This one for sure you feel that you have not understood a joke even though the whole crowd in the theatre is laughing, dont despair their are intellectual capabilities do not match with yours.

This is not a spoiler but in the climax scene you have digitally (badly) done; water rushing across all the hallways in the hotel. Very similar to the Titanic one, dont even bother thinking how it happened. In the process, the audience is left confused yet again> Will the actors drown in them, will swim they in it, will they have funny slides made out of it, or what? cause the whole place is filled with water rushing and very bad extras reacting scared, but you can see through them that there is no water in front of them.

I can only say confused, go watch it, dont have any expectations, laugh when the crowd laughs, or you will left out on the joke.

Few Laughs but basically just an average movie. This is no HERA PHERI.Johny Lever is good.

Two broke best friends and their rich girlfriends desperate to marry them. The girl's respective fathers desperate to marry them off elsewhere. A bankrupt businessman who is getting his useless son engaged to every heiress in town to pay off his debts. Assorted characters like a Chinese don, a hired assassin, a rich bitch, 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. Throw in a kidnapping, mistaken identities and mistaken room numbers, an assassin on the prowl and a wedding. And, relish the mayhem.

screenplay and plot could have been better and tighter. its a below average comedy with i must say good laughs. towards the end scene were hilarious, starts off slow and boring but i liked the part of the story where these all the 100s of these character collides in this hotel i liked that part. other wise an ok time pass movie. acting was awful, songs were bad.

For a bit of nonsense entertainment with almost every comedian in the Hindi film industry joining the party... leave the thinking brain at home

Even for Akshay Kumar's standard it is lame.

½ May 31, 2010
a typical Priyadarshan multi starrer & his typical crap.. It's not funny.. it's not got a good story.. it's not got good direction.. it's not got a single good performance.. it's literally got nothing.. Never watch this movie..!
½ May 25, 2010
pathetic!! priyadarshan has lost it. or rumor has it. he doesn't want to docomic stuff anymore. but producers are only eager to use him as a cashcow! so he might just have made it half-heartedly, no actually he didn't put his heart at all.

Definitely he's one of the most alented director India has seen. last year he also won national award for sm south indian movie!
