Genre: Comedy/Drama/Romance

Starring: Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, Katrina Kaif, Paresh Rawal, Sameera Reddy, Neha Dhupia, Manoj Joshi, Chunky Pandey

A standard formula has been set when it comes to hardcore comedy in Indian Cinema. The same cliched star cast, stale overused jokes, pure stupidity, usual mess-ups and foreign locations. De Dana Dan doesn't even try to be slightly different from the lot, in fact a lot of bits and pieces of this movie has been strongly influenced by a previously seen movie Do Knot Disturb. Nitin (Kumar) is very frustrated with his work and his life. He is deeply in love with Anjali (Kaif) but cant marry her cause hes broke. He tries to commit suicide but is saved by courier boy Ram Mishra (Shetty). Ram too has a similar sob story to tell. He loves Manpreet (Reddy) but like Nitin, cant afford to marry her. The duo are contemplating on suicide when they get a sudden brilliant idea of kidnapping Nitin's mistresses beloved dog. The kidnapping happens, but the dog escapes. The police are under the impression that it is Nitin who has been kidnapped and go on a man-hunt. On the other hand, Harbans Chadda (Rawal) is a businessman who is on the verge of going bankrupt. He wants to get his son Nonny (Pandey) married so that he can pay-off his debts with the dowry. His wedding is fixed with Manpreet and is due to take place at a lavish Singapore hotel. A host of other stupid side stories adorn the main story line and when there are too many cooks, the broth is bound to get spoilt. The first half of the movie is pretty much boring and quite slow. It's only when the confusion at the hotel starts happening when you actually feel like laughing. The movie uses overused methods to make you laugh hard which just doesn't work anymore. Not worth wasting a Saturday night.

Thumbs up: The song 'paisa paisa' and Asrani in the Chinese get up
