  1. another rehash of hera pheri?

    • First user review of DDD :

      So, the much awaited comedy released early since of thanksgiving. I had decent expectations since of Priyadarshan and hera pheri team. However, Akshay’s recent luck hasn’t been great with movies. So does the movie deliver. The answer is a mixture of YES and NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      To begin, its a routine comedy movie from Priyan with not that great of a script but a bunch of misunderstood events packed with some BRILLIANT dialogues. That’s the best DDD does. It’s a one time watch at the best becuase of some witty stuff. Priyandarshan has a real weak script but he still entices the viewer through some hilarios scenes but thats expected from him.

      My favorite scenes-
      Dog kidnap scene
      Suniel-akki scenes about suicide
      Rajpal yadav scenes
      akki stuck in closet
      indian amabassador scenes
      Paresh Rawal scene before climax

      The film starts off slow and then picks up momentum after half hour. Song are totally placed at the wrong times. Priyan does an okay job but better is expected. That katrina sari song is not shown. Plus the climax with the water overflood is not that funny as was expected.

      The film works because of some good performances. No surprise, its Paresh Rawals movie. Suniel was good. Akki was routine but I have to admit he was brlliant in two or three scenes. Kat,sammera have no roles. Johny and asrani are very good. Rajpal is outstanding. The supporting cast is outstanding.

      Overall, a decent watch at the best. No way near HERA PHERI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO FOR IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      MY RATING 2.75/5

      PS: Night show was 40% packed. response very mixed………………………………….VEER-BRILLIANTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT………………………SALMAN CAME ON SCREEN AND CROWD WENT MAD…………………………….ONE OF THE BEST THEATERICAL TRAILERS I HAVE EVER SEEN

  6. m srk fan but i will watch this movie as it seems to be promising n 12 of us are going frst day frst show..

  7. vrrr tralier is on
    it is Brilliant

  8. OH MY GOD i just watched VEER promo.
    i dont know wat to say. amazing amazing promo
    Sallu is gonna kick ass.
    even those who dont like hime cant ignore him in dis film

  9. well the promo is a bit confusing but sallu looks in good
    form!
    guys what is youre prediction for DDD opening weekend ??

  10. OK Guys this is it.. just watched De Dana Dan and believe me its a disappointment. a messy, confusing, utter nonsense.
    surprisingly the movie released on wednesday and a bug bite me to watch it first day first show. there is the whole industry in the movie to name with Akshay kumar, Sunil Shetty, Paresh rawal, Katrina Kaif, Sameery Reddy, Neha Dupia, Rajpal yadav, Asrani, Shakti kapoor, Sarat sexana, Tinu anand, Johnny lever, vikram gokle, bla bla bla.. u got all of them but the script is mis leading and comic timings are too bad and the songs pops up n e time any where one feels like going for a strawl as the picturization of songs is so bad over all priyadarshini lost it all this time. hardly at 3 places you feel like laughing other then that its a pale tale. the lead girls have no scope at all they are like show pieces n both the lead guys have white hair’s they are grown old y dont they just bleach them black?
    there is one thing to feel good about is the climax i.e. the whole swiming pool comes down with a bomb blast and beautifully it’s been showed the water comes from the terrace passing thru each floor flooding the rooms, kitchen, lobies, n finaly at the ground floor. but again the end is too bad and plain. over all akshay kumar kept upto his standard of his new title “King of Trash” congrats

  11. i forgot to mention, Veer Trailer is as bad as the movie de dana dan. salmans diologue delivery is so poor looks so ordinary. no much expectations from the movie.

  12. aha jacktackle where u watched it it is wednesday have a chill pill movie will release tomorrow for advance previews

  13. i just think u r a hater

  14. hi karan i’m in kuwait n the prints are released here already and i’ve narated the story of the movie which is not been told any where cant you see that? n i’m no hater but yes i hate it when we expect too much and we get bullshit in return. i tot akshay could shut his critics with this movie. but he failed and i’m disappointed

  15. well this everyone knows that the story is like this and
    the main attraction will be the climax, nothing new and songs are
    already on air and well they r picturised beautifully and can u send me the cinemas name where u watched it, cause the film will
    just release in canada on wednesday thats it

  16. today is wednesday in kuwait and it released in … wait a minute. i hope it’s not n e thing like u r gona complain to the distributers in india that its been released in kuwait on wednesday. is it? n e ways the theaters are 360 mall & avenues n i dont have to proov n e thing to u. its best if u dont watch it in theaters u can even watch a cam print or pre-dvd print which will be available on download on friday. which song according to you is picturized well?? it only sounds beautiful when u listen to Pritams audio of DDD but when u watch them in the movie, they becomes irritating. you will witness it yourself trust me

  17. and huh check out this site for the movie listing in kuwait
    http://www.kncc.com

  18. well there are no shows from today but i called a friend out in the
    usa he has seen the film also today and he said 4 out of 5 he said fantastic entertainer

  19. Watched it in USA – Movie is terrbile and below expectations. Most places i yawned and thought of walking off. Very few scenes are funny. Will do bad business.

  20. well guys have seen the film awesome movie the comedy is the very best what a situational comedy and yeees akshay is back with a bang watch his comedy just awesome and paresh for me the show stealer great great entertainment haha watch out for some veryyyy funny scences from the climax hahaha u will cry while laughing

  21. heyyy thxxx yuvraj now i am bit delighted greattt DDD will be the biggest hit till 3 idots comes

  22. heyyy thxxx yuvraj now i am bit delighted

  23. DDD is looking very great comedy film.might be hit film.akki is back with hit.

  24. hey karan no doubt ddd will bee a hit andits a matter of choice as jactackle said he diddnt like it but my frnd in usa watched it an he liked it too much that he is gonna watch it atleast twice..he said punches are very good..

  25. guys watched ddd awesome movie akshay is back.. its basically a comedy and it will glue u to the seats and its a rib-tickling comedy.its a must watch movie

  26. SRK fans go and watch stupid terrorist movies like MNIK and Kurbaan.
    family comedies is not your cup of tea.

  27. btw people who are u telling crap ?
    SRK is king of craps.Just saw his Om Shanti Om and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
    These 2 are such utter nonsense films that they have left Mithun’s B-Grade 1990s films far behind and such films are loved by this overseas people.

  28. Om Shanti Om – a stupid spoof on Bollywood.
    These film make stupid Hollywood spoofs like Disaster Movie/Meet The Spartans look world classics.

  29. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi – A crap film ever from Yash Chopra’s production House.
    These film should be awarded award for assaulting minds of viewers.
    They are still thinking that if we shave our facial hair our wife will not recognise us.

  30. Now say you jacktakie guys who thinks candyfloss films like DDLJ,Kuch Kuch Hota Hai,Kal Ho Na Ho,KANK (people made joke of extramarital Affairs) and these two mentioned craps above as classic Indian films.

  31. Jackietakie
    “script is misleading”.
    First of all do you know what is meaning of script ?
    First come out of SRK fan mania and then talk about films.

    ENJOT THOSE KIDS CRYING OVER BAD REVIEWS OF DDD

  34. The above review is from Faridoon.. He normally is spot on with this comments. But rajeev Masand has expected will blast this movie..

    Rajeev in twitter: De Dana Dan: Whose idea of comedy is this? It’s a migraine-inducing monstrosity! Take your Saridon with you. Don’t say u weren’t warned.

  35. @Jacktackle….stop spreading fake news.
    VEER promo is just outstanding. beyond imagination in Bollywood. And Dialogue delivery was great…YE MERE DUTTA KI TALWAR SIRF FIRANGIO KI GARDANO KE LIYE HAI…..What a powerful dialogue…none could have presented better than him. The last dialogue was bit subtle, could’ve been better if bolder….btw..Salman hasn’t dubbed yet. Dialogues will be more powerful after dubbing…..said the producer. SALMAN & VEER will rule in 2010.
