Top Ten Bollywood Comedies ( MY picks)

  Movies are considered as one of the best recreation resource

known to man. We all grew up watching our stars on the silverscreen and

this silverscreen has shown us all kinds of wmotions feelings. Here is

my list of the Top ten hindi movie comedies of all time

Image hosted by  GOLMAAL(1979)   one of the

classic tale of fake twin brothers ram prasad and dashrath prasad Amol

Palekar playing the duo role one of the honest and hard working Clerk

and the other part as the carefree so called "Modern" guy.Utpal dutt

givin a performance of life time making the movie memorable.

Bombay TO GOA (1972)  A

classic comedy by the king of of comedy himself MEHMOOD. BOmbay to Goa

is a movie about a bus trip from Bombay to Goa and how the events

unfold on the way. AMitabh bachan's few of early movies

the movie is a pack of comedians and from first shot to last cut the

movie makes u roll on the floor.With songs like "DEkha na " the movie

catches your attention your thrill and keeps you involved for the whole


Image hosted by PADOSAN(1968)  Great

teaming up of Kishore KUmar Sunil Dutt Om Prakash and MEHMOOD yes this

movie defines pure humor. BHOLA (Sunil dutt) plays the yound chap who

falls in love with his next door neighbour  (padosan) BINDU (Saira

Banu) but he is unable to express his love for the girl so he tries to

impress her by the singing skills of his friend and GURU (Kishore Kumar

) the only problem in the way is Master ji (MEhmood) and this leads to

a fight for BINDU in which BHolas wins in the end . Where songs like "

ek chatur naar " meri pyari bindu " gave a new touch to comic songs

then songs like " Meri samne wali " and "Kehna hai' took melody to new

heights . A true classic and timeless comedy.

Image hosted by Andaz APna Apna (1994) a

manic ride with two useless dreamers from small towns Amar( amir) and

Prem(salman), they both want to marry a rich foreign return girl

Raveena ( raveena tandon) they both try to impress her and outdo each

other karishma plays ravina's frnd and there is Paresh Rawal palying

the double role of Teza Seth and Bajaj . Shakti Kapoor playing the

ultimate Crime <Mastrer GOGo . the movie is full of geek activities

salman khan saying "oyee ma" and Amir "Hai la " the movie is  fun

ride absolutely brilliant.

Jaane Bhi do YAARON( 1983)  Packed with some

of the best actors of Indian film industry many of them coming straight

from the drama school. One of the best Dark Comedy  of Bollywood.

This one hits the system ,It is a satire with Vinod

(Naseeruddin Shah) and Sudhir (Ravi Vaswani) as photographers in search

of work.

They get an assignment from the editor of a magazine called

�Khabardar�. They witness a murder and are dragged into the corrupt

real estate deals with politicians and bureaucrats. THe "MAHabharat's

play" scene are some of the most hillarious moments on indian

silverscreen.and yeah SAtish Shah def playing the best dead body role.

Image hosted by CHACHI 420 (1998)

This is Indian style of doing things and for the first time an indian

movie outshined an Hollywood movie. AN adaptation of Robbie william;s

Mrs Doubtfire this movie includes had the brigade of actors like Kamal

hasan playin the desperate father( jayprakash) who in his efforts to

stop his family from fallign apart starts baby sittin his own daughter

as CHachi .. things go fine but then Seth Durga Prasad (Amrish Puri) falls in love with chachi and then Jay's land lord Hari Bhai Paresh Rawal also falls in for Chachi.In the course of time CHachi also developes an enemy his father-in-law�s secretary (Om Puri). then there is endless cofusion and comedy to roll you off ur seat.

Chupke Chupke (1975)
Dr. Parimal Tripathi

(Dharamendra) is a Botany professor who falls in love with Archana (Sharmila
Tagore). She thinks the world of her brother-in-law or

Raghav (Om Prakash) as she calls him, thinking that he is one of the smartest guys around.Parimal decides to take him on with his comic Hindi (as
is a stickler for purity of language), impersonating as a driver. The plot thickens when he ropes in his friends Sukumar (Amitabh Bachchan), Prashant (Asrani) and Archana�s brother (David). He totally perplexes the poor old �jijjaji� with unheard of
words and phrases. He throws a bombshell when he elopes with Archana leaving
jijjaji and her sister completely
shocked and helpless. Meanwhile Sukumar posing as Dr. Parimal Tripathi falls in
love with Prashant�s sister (Jaya Bhaduri) adding another dimension to
this funfest. The highpoint of this comic caper is the perfect timing that
Dharamendra and Om Prakash share making their scenes a treat to watch. The
comedy is not in your face or slapstick instead its situational and

Image hosted by Hera Pheri 2000 One

of the biggest surprise excep paresh rawal Both AKshau Kumar and suneil

shetty were not considered as comedians but this movie defied all

speculations. Priyadarshan made a movie full of commotion and enuff

slapstick humor. Shyam (Sunil Shetty) and Raju

(Akshay Kumar) are paying guests at the

home of a generous garage owner, Baburao (Paresh Rawal). All three are

broke and

dream of becoming millionaires. Raju hatches a plot of rescuing the


granddaughter of a rich businessman and keeping the ransom. Things get


chaotic when they get stuck between the kidnappers, the businessman and


police. Om Puri and Asrani play interesting cameos in the film. BAburao

played by paresh rawal is one of the greatest character portrayed in


MUNNA BHAI M.B.B.S. (2003 )
Sanjay Dutt plays Murli Prasad Sharma or Munna, a local

bhai turned fake doctor. His parents live in a village and think that their son

is as upright and respectable as them. He has made them believe that he is a

doctor. When they visit him, his transition from a bhai to a doctor makes you

roll with laughter.

Munna decides tht he wil become a real doctor and tries to fulfill his

parent's dreams but the problem in the way to success is

Asthana (Boman Irani) is brilliant as the hyper

doctor who believes in �laughter therapy' he is the person who in the

first place exposed Munna's mockery to his father (Sunil Dutt). 

Munna gets help from his whole gang including hsi best frnd CIRCUIT(

arshad warsi ). then there is also a love angle going on between MUNNA

and the Doctor SApna( GAuri ) Best part of the movie are the scenes of

Dr Astahan and Munna . " MAMU" catching its way after the movie
