De Dana Dan is a romantic comedy film directed by Priyadarshan and released in 2009. It features an ensemble cast including Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Katrina Kaif, Sameera Reddy, Paresh Rawal and others. The movie is set in Singapore and revolves around two friends who are in desperate need of money and try to come up with different ways to get rich quick.

The story starts with Nitin (Akshay Kumar), a smart and charming but unemployed man who dreams of becoming wealthy. He is deeply in love with his girlfriend Anjali (Katrina Kaif) and wants to marry her, but her father (played by Paresh Rawal) doesn't approve of their relationship due to Nitin's financial status. In order to win his approval, Nitin decides to get rich overnight.

Nitin approaches his former classmate and now a wealthy businessman, Ram (Suniel Shetty), to help him with some money-making ideas. Ram agrees and suggests a plan to kidnap his own beloved pet dog and demand a ransom from his rich father-in-law. Nitin and Ram carry out the plan but it backfires and they face a lot of unexpected consequences.

To further complicate matters, Nitin owes a huge debt to a local don, Peshawarwala (played by Johnny Lever), and is constantly in fear of him. Peshawarwala gives Nitin a deadline to repay the loan, which adds to his pressure to come up with a solution quickly.

Meanwhile, Anjali's father arranges her marriage to a wealthy man and she reluctantly agrees to marry him. This distresses Nitin, who feels helpless to stop the marriage. In a last-ditch effort, Nitin and Ram come up with another plan to get rich quickly. They join a beauty pageant with the hope of winning the prize money. However, things don't go according to plan and they find themselves in a chaotic situation.

De Dana Dan has a fast-paced plot with lots of comedic situations and misadventures. The film's director, Priyadarshan, is known for his knack for making successful comedies and this movie is no exception. The dialogues are witty, the performances are impressive, and the music is enjoyable. Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty share great chemistry on screen, and their comic timing is impeccable. Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous and adds to the glam quotient in the few scenes she appears in.

The supporting cast is equally brilliant, with actors like Paresh Rawal, Sameera Reddy, and Johnny Lever delivering noteworthy performances. The movie's climax is chaotic and hilarious, with multiple characters getting stuck in a hotel's revolving door.

Overall, De Dana Dan is a fun-filled roller-coaster ride that will leave you entertained and amused.
