Veera, the protagonist of the Tamil movie Raavanan, used to repeat a specific phrase throughout the movie, which was one of the few things not translated in the dubbed version I watched. It sounded like

dan...dan...dan...danaka!

Does this mean anything in the Tamil language, or is it some name, maybe related to the original Ramayana which the movie was supposedly based on to some degree (and which I'm totally unacquainted with)? Or was this just some kind of exclamation, without much literal meaning to it? And what was his intention for saying this? Was he trying to intimidate people with that, seeing that he used to say this in rather instense situations, or was this just part of his quite excessive character?
