Summary

This entertaining story is based in Singapore, where Nitin works as an unpaid worker for Kuljeet Kaur, in lieu of the education loan his father took from her. He is in love with a wealthy girl named Anjali but faces opposition from her rich dad. His friend, Ram, works as a courier agent and loves Manpreet, a girl who is way richer than him. The intense pressure from their girls drives them towards kidnapping Kuljeet’s dog, Moolchand, and extract money from the rich and evil Kuljeet. However, their plan backfires when the dog runs away and news of Nitin’s kidnapping spreads everywhere. Will they get any money and marry their girls? Priyadarshan develops great amusement by playing with identities and pandemonium.

The movie  starts out funny but gradually becomes more and more exhausting. The film sticks to what seems to have become the standard formula for Bollywood comedies. You recall Daddy Cool, Do Knot Disturb, All the Best – De Dana Dan is one more from that school of laughter. The film gets more tedious as

Priyadarshan, refusing as always to call himself a director — ‘filmed by,’ proclaim his credits — attempts to stitch together this ragtag quilt in his usual style, ending up with a stupidly elaborate monstrosity.All manner of morons — philanderers, dognappers, murderers, hookers, marriagable daughters and dumb-waiters — congregate in a plush Singapore hotel, and chaos

De Dana Dan will almost certainly end up giving you a headache. Unless you revel in comedy where every character shrieks and screams, women are spoken of in a degrading manner and loud decibel levels give you a kick, this one’s not for you. Not that the film does not have its moments. But when
