There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.
Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.
Hope this is helpful!!

linkage on inside of door has come undone. take off inside door panel and you will find a small rod that goes to the lock mechanism where the door closes opposite the hinges. follow the handle to the door lock.the nylon bushing may have broken.they are cheap to purchase at auto part stores.

go inside, lift on handle, then beat the **** out of the door pounding it like your trapped in it trying to get out. latch mechanism is probably corroded and froze shut. once open, spray with wd40 and work the lever a lot. then get door panel off to see if handle is broken inside

Are the doors manual or auto? Are your door lock actuators engaging when you hit the open/close button? Did you check all your fuses to make sure there all good? If every thing is checking good, and the door wont open from inside or outside, then your problem is : Inside your door are a series of rods, one goes from your inner door handle straight to the door lock assembly (it is dislocated from opening the door roughly) and one goes from the actuator to the door lock assembly which I believe also is dislocated, only way to fix this problem is to weasel your way through the edge of the door panel with a very long screwdriver (16-20") and a light and try to trigger the mechanism directly on the lock to open. This is alittle tricky and might require a trained technician to perform because with the door closed your panel might not come off which will raise the risk of destroying your door panel, in the long run paying a little money could save you a lot more if you break that panel!
