On the occasion of World Laughter Day, we want to give you one more reason to laugh. After all, as Charlie Chaplin once said, “a day without laughter is a day wasted.”
Here’s a list of our top 5 (and all-time favorite) Bollywood comedy films that will have you rolling with laughter:
Andaz Apna Apna (1994)
A cult and a classic. Andaz Apna Apna is a film all 90’s kids grew up watching and loving. The story is about two boys Amar and Prem, who chase a simple get-rich-quick scheme of marrying a rich heiress Raveena. But the heiress has another surprise for them – enter Karishma.
If your go-to birthday wish “Heppy Budday Rabbit,” know who “Tilu” is, can effortlessly dance to “dhaakki tiki,” and if you can hear the GIF above (comment & share with us the dialogue) – you’re definitely not a kachcha khiladi. You rightfully belong to the AAA fan-club!
Hera Pheri (2000)
Hera Pheri brought together four serious who gave us a classic comedy of errors. The eccentric trio of Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal share an apartment and often find themselves bizarre situations. One such situation lands them an opportunity to make a quick buck, but leads them to a whole lot of comical trouble.
Who remembers the song Anuradha (Tabu) sings to woo Shyam (Suniel Shetty)?
Haseena Maan Jaayegi (1999)
Govinda and David Dhawan were a comical force to be reckoned with in the 90s.
The rich bratty brothers, Sonu and Monu fall in love in with sisters Pooja and Ritu, creating ruckus all over town to convince Gulzarilal for their hand in marriage.
Haseena Maan Jaayegi gave Govinda a well-deserved status of Comedy King with one of his greatest performances as Monu and chacha ji… because jo chacha hai wahi bhateeja hai, aur jo bhateeja hai wahi chacha hai (in Nepali watchman’s voice).
Judwaa is a comedy with a little bit of drama revolving around two Sallu’s, Raja & Prem Malhotra – twins who were separated at birth. While one grows up in the lap of luxury, the other lives like an orphan with his friend Rangeela.
The over-the-top chemistry between Mala (Karishma Kapoor) and Raja (Salman Khan), and the twins (both Salman Khan) made it a laughter riot.
While Judwaa 2 was a good effort at recreating the magic, the original remains a classic and inimitable.
Chal Mere Bhai (2000)
Surprisingly, not many have watched this sweet little gem. Chal Mere Bhai is a story of two brothers who live a lavish life. Their lives turn upside-down when a new secretary joins their business and both brothers fall in love with her.
The charming comedy shows the bond between brothers, filled with some light as well as super ham moments. A must-watch if you miss the 90s Salman Khan with Karishma Kapoor.
