Bang Bang Bang Laugh Riot!!!
With the team joins hands back again, the expectations are nothing short of yet another "Hera Pheri". The team needed a desperate hit to redeem themselves from the recent spate of flops in everybody's kitty. Needless to say the pressure surmounts and result is "De Dana Dan".

De Dana Dan gives the opportunity to see all the Priyan's regulars under one roof. There is little something for everybody and to what extent the character is justified is a debate for another day.

The laugh-riot owing to comedy of errors bear uncanny resemblance to Priyan's earlier outing "Hungama". There are streaks of "One Two Three" (under-rated, IMO). The writer should be applauded for being able to weave the intricate complex mesh of sub-plots and integrate it into the main storyline. On the same note, the director deserves brownie points for being able to cross the deliverable milestone. No doubt there is breadth in terms of sub-plots, however the downside is lack of depth in it. By the time a character and the sub-plot sinks into the audience, the story moves on. And when the tributaries join in, the confusion starts to seep in.

In terms of performance the lead performers are do a fine job ie. Akki, Paresh, Suniel, Katrina in descending order of of screen time. Sameera Reddy hardly leaves an impression. The supporting cast as mentioned earlier are Priyan's regulars and seem under-utilised. But hey-ho, everybody seemed to have enjoyed the overseas holiday during the shoot. On that note, it seems basing the story in Malaysia was an overkill. Lets not forget "Hera Pheri" worked because of the simplicity which the audience were instantly able to connect.

Pritam's songs deserve a special mention, great foot-tapping numbers are justified adequately with their picturisation.

Finally Priyan could have come up with a better climax rather the water- shed.
