Unintentionally Funny, Must-Watch Bollywood Movies: De Dana Dan

Not considering this one, Akshay Kumar has had exactly Four big releases this year. All four have, in some capacity, made an appearance on this here website. You can read three of them:

And Here – http://www.thevigilidiot.com/2009/04/13/tasveer/

So when I got up this morning, I had big hopes for De Dana Dan. Because there is no way any actor can deliver 5 spoofworthy movies in a row, right? That’d be like the box office equivalent of Liverpool’s season this year. But alas, about 10 minutes into the movie, I could tell that, like the Scousers, I was, in fact, expecting too much. About 30 minutes into the movie, my brain started the slow process of disintegration into mush. And at the end of the Two & A Half something hours the movie lasted, I just wanted a hug.

Forget the comic panels, to even say that I could explain the movie in essay format, with just normal words, is like saying that I could explain Schrödinger’s Equations of Quantum Physics as retheorised by Roger Penrose. Nah, that might be exaggerating things a little. Because I’m pretty sure summarising Schrödinger’s theory is actually the easier task.

  10. Priyadarsan says:

    Screw you all !

  11. Sohaib says:

    Was it just me or that hot, wet song with Katrina and Akshay never showed up in the movie, thus defrauding all honest paying customers?

    • Sahil Rizwan says:

      Nooooooooo! It wasn’t just you, bro! 2 hours and 45 minutes the movie lasted, and THAT was the 5 minutes the editors decided to cut out for the earlier screenings! Absolute Fail! X-(

  12. Debjani says:

    Ashwin told me to watch out for this one 😛
    Off The Record has always been great!
    All the best!!

  13. ajnabi says:

    Now see what you’ve done, Sahil? You upset Priyadarshan so badly he forgot how to spell his name. I hope you’re proud.

  14. Sahil Rizwan says:

    Thank you dear readers! Keep subscribing! =)

  15. Swapnil says:

    This is an amazing site. Keep up the good work dude, you rock !!

    my fav: Kurbaan

  16. Neeraj says:

    Sahil man, you have to do a webcomic review of Mission Istanbul! I see it figures in the ghati list but please do this one! Its like a modern Gunda if you know what I mean. Looking forward to it 😉

  17. Nidhi says:

  19. Pankaj Hirway says:

    Awesome work………
    waiting for a MEME

  20. Moony says:

    Amazingggg work dudee!!! 😀 hahahahah made my dayyy! xD

  21. Well, I don’t have much use for widgets since I subscribe via RSS. This site is totally invaluable though. I’m never going to waste money on a Bollywood movie again.

  22. Vasanth says:

    Awesome man! Its better than watching the movies actually. Blogrolled you…

  23. blueberry32 says:

    Haha.. and finally a ‘Search’ button! Please please oh please do Ajab Prem?

    • Sahil Rizwan says:

      Hehe, the search button was always there no? About Ajab Prem, I dunno. You can’t really spoof a slapstick comedy. Unless it’s really, REALLY, bad! XD

      • Aditi says:

        oh trust me, ajab prem….. is one of the dumbest movies u’ll ever cum across…. the last scene is the worst…with the villains getting an electric shock in a pool of god-knows-what, and flying up and down in IN SYNC!!!!!!!!!! *cringe*, *cringe*, *cringe*!!!!!!!!!

        P.S. – totally hooked to ur comics…. :)

  24. anita says:

    oh man, this is hilarious. been reading your work since kurbaan, and now i’m waiting for more turkeys to come up just to see what your spin is! great work :)

  25. Lucifer says:

    No reviews of Paa or Radio? Need Paa, man. It is possibly the most eagerly awaited movie that I don’t ever want to see.

  26. Vaarun says:

    hilarious hahahahahha but dude u forgot to mention the biggest akshay kumar movie in ur intro…Chandni Chowk to China u gotta do dat one as well man

  27. amol says:

    ohh this is Fawesome! One day I got Kurbaan’s strip, I did not know the site. just now I got to know and bookmarked immediately.

  28. Sahil Rizwan says:

    Thanks Varun & Amol. I have mentioned Chandni Chowk to China somewhere on the site. Don’t think it’s in comic strip form though. =)

  29. Sib says:

    Priyadarshan takes awesome malayalam movies with great comic scenes/dialogues and then puts them into his stupid formulaic model with misunderstandings and dumb chase sequences and screws it up. Which is why, most mallus who have seen the originals never watch his Hindi movies!

    • Sahil Rizwan says:

      That is true! As a genetic Malayali myself, I can attest to that. This guy just butchered Manichitrathazhu. Although, I was surprised he didn’t find a way to end Bhool Bhulaya with a chase sequence! =p

  30. kong kahn says:

    dude a movie that i would have never watched unless it was through your site…man this is doper than the tum mile+ aftab double dhamaka

  31. DaddyBird says:

    Heheh, great review! Although you didn’t mention one of the best things about the movie: for most of the second half of the film, Akshay Kumar’s character ends up locked in a closet and you don’t see much of him until near the end. This is a wonderful thing, that should happen in more of his movies! 😉
