One of veteran actor Utpal Dutt’s most impressive performances, Golmaal was a laugh riot. Once again dwelling on disguises and mistaken identities, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s comedy of errors gave us some fantastic music from RD Burman and was the recipient of several awards. Perhaps Amol Palekar’s career best performance, playing Ram Prasad and Laxman Prasad Sharma. Remember the scene where the feisty Dina Pathak quickly transforming herself from a high society woman to a middle class mother?
This Hrishikesh Mukherjee directed film along with dialogues penned by Gulzar was a classic comedy. With her brilliant comic timing, Rekha’s performance won her praise as well as awards. Ashok Kumar, Bindu, Rakesh Roshan…the cast was a delightful bunch. A movie you can watch again and again and again.
This hugely popular 1968 film starring Sunil Dutt and Saira Banu was another light-hearted comedy and had wonderful music from by RD Burman. The movie was a fun riot, adding to the madness were superb comic performances by Mehmood and Kishore Kumar. ‘Mere Saamnewali Khidki mein…’ is undoubtedly had the funniest picturisation of all times.
In this dark satire on the wide-spread corruption in Indian politics and the media industry, Naseeruddin Shah and Ravi Baswani kicked up a storm of laughter with their incredible comic timing. This film is also rated as one of the Top 25 must-see Bollywood films. Oh yes, Satish Shah was dead brilliant as he played a corpse throughout the film.
This romantic comedy that dwells on a love triangle, once again saw good performances by the star cast that included Deepti Naval, Rakesh Dedi and Farooq Sheikh. The film was directed by Sai Paranjpye.
Directed by Basu Chatterjee, Khatta Meetha saw veteran actors Utpal Dutt and Pearl Padamsee come together on screen as an elderly couple with their separate entourage of kids. New found situations and surroundings give rise to comic situations with hilarious after-effects.
Basu Chatterjee’s romantic comedy 'Baton Baton Mein' sees Pearl Padamsee once again along with Amol Palekar and Tina Munim. The film that is famous for its comic dialogues and good music has been a favourite along the years.
A slice from real life, this gem from Sai Paranjpe deals with the perennial problem of show-offs walking away with all the credit, while the meek end up with nothing, in spite of the hard work. Naseeruddin Shah plays a smart aleck and Farooq Sheikh his innocent friend. Dipti Naval is the simple neighbourhood girl coveted by both the guys. Absolutely delightful.
With hilarious dialogues and situational comedy, the 1988 'Maalamaal' starred Naseeruddin Shah and Poonam Dhillon. A hilarious sequence of incidents ensues when the character played by Naseeruddin inherits a huge sum of money and is at a loss on how to spend it.
This film starring Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla was directed by Mahesh Bhatt and was one of the most successful films of the 90s. Apart from stellar performances by Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla, this cute comedy has three adorable child artists.
This film is a cauldron of comedy, action, love and thrilling sequences augmented with some impressive performances by Anil Kapoor and Sridevi. With the film’s songs becoming popular Bollywood chartbusters, we would love to see who Mr India would take on next after the curtains came down on the original movie.
This adorable romantic comedy brought back the Shah Rukh-Juhi Chawla jodi on screen. The film is a wonderful amalgamation of romance, heart-break, aspirations and great music. SRK plays a gray, real life character and excels in it.
