Ha, ha, ha! He, he, he! Hu, hu, hu! Ho, ho, ho!
When we think of comedy, this series is probably the first that comes into anyone's mind. We're talking about Rohit Shetty's successful trilogy: Golmaal! It all began in 2006 with Golmaal - Fun Unlimited, which introduced 4 jobless, happy-go-lucky youngsters: Gopal (Ajay Devgn), Madhav (Arshad Warsi), Laxman (Sharman Joshi in first, Shreyas Talpade in second two), and, of course, everyone's favorite, the mute Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor). A fact that many people do not know, the name of the movie stands for thier names: Go for Gopal, L for Laxman, Ma for Madhav, and L for Lucky. Shreyas Talpade entered as the new Laxman in 2008 in the second installment of the movie, Golmaal Returns, with a brief explanation that Sharman Joshi's character Laxman was dead. This trilogy continued its success with 2010's Golmaal 3. It's Let Laugh Day and what better way to laugh then to watch this foursome at their comic best?
"Main Baburao Ganpatrao Apte." Recognize this line? It's from two very famous comedy movies: Hera Pheri and Phir Hera Pheri. A movie about 3 jobless, middle-class males: Raju (Akshay Kumar), Ghanshyam, in short Shyam (Suniel Shetty), and Baburao Ganpatrao Apte called Babu Bhaiyya (Paresh Rawal). Despite the fact that they are frustrated with their life, they are living it with laughter and fun. Both movies are known for the comic fights between the trio and then for the elaborate (and long) climax scenes which is Priyadarshan's trademark. You cannot but help and laugh at these mindless chase sequences where finally all the issues are resolved with a happily ever after ending!
Circuit and Munna. Who can forget these two names! We're talking about the one and only Munnabhai M.B.B.S. When the movie released in 2003, people couldn't stop laughing at Circuit's (Arshad Warsi) antics and Munnabhai's (Sanjay Dutt) fights with the professors. Munnabhai and Circuit were goons but with a twist. Unlike most of the hindi film goons (who usually tease the heroine and then get beaten by the hero), Munnabhai and Circuit were "social workers" with a heart of gold. The two did things that brought smiles to other people's faces. They helped people out by making other peoples lives miserable. And when the two entered Dr. Asthana's (Boman Irani) life, they turned his life into a maze of craziness with hilarious results. The statutory warning at the beginning of the movie says it all! This movie is bound to make you laugh!
Hungama, the next movie on our list, is another classic Priyadarshan and Paresh Rawal movie. This duo always makes viewers laugh with their sometimes subtle, sometimes in-your-face comedy. This movie revolves around the lives of Jeetu (Akshay Khanna) and Nandu (Aftab Shivdasani), both who are from rich families, but go against their families will to fulfill their own dreams. When Anjali (Rimi Sen) enters into their lives, everything turns upside down and inside out. Radheshyam Tiwari (Paresh Rawal), Anjali Tiwari (Shoma Anand), and Tejabhai (Shakti Kapoor), among others, are all there to add much fun to the craziness. And, of course, the movie ends with the regular chaotic climax sequence.
Sameer (Salman Khan) is an angry young man with anger management issues. He moves to Goa after making a promise to his grandmother that he won't get angry. Here he meets Rani (Priyanka Chopra), whom he falls in love with. But soon trouble arrives in the form of Sunny (Akshay Kumar), who leaves no chance of trying to make Sameer get angry. That's the beginning of Mujhse Shaadi Karoge. The various sequences between Sameer and Sunny make for a fine laugh, especially the scene when Sameer drinks quite a bit and starts seeing seven Sunnys.Watch this movie and do tell us at BollyCurry whether we're right or not.
This movie is not the regular run-of-the-mill, in-your-face comedy movie. Yet, this movie surely is quite a comedy! Delhi Belly mainly revolves around 3 roommates: Tashi (Imran Khan), Nitin Beri (Kunaal Roy Kapur), and Arup (Vir Das). The three come across a package when Sonia (Shenaz Treasurywala) gives the package to Tashi to deliver. This package soon gets lost and the movie delivers quite a hilarious sequence as the 3 friends go about Delhi searching for this package and attempting to deliver it to the right location. A must watch for all movie lovers!
Seek as a remake of 1979's Golmaal this movie is a hilarious side-splitting laugh riot! With Prithviraj Raghuvanshi's (Ajay Devgn) hilarious English translations and Abbas Ali's (Abhishek Bachchan) attempts to save his job and life, Bol Bachchan is sure to keep you holding your sides in your attempt to control your laughter. Krushna Abhishek and Asrani only add to the comedy timing of the movie with their fights of Ravi and Shastri. And like all Rohit Shetty movies, there is bound to be lots of tod-phod as villains are beaten, cars are broken, and heroines are saved.
You may not think of this movie as an out-and-out comedy movie, and you are right. 3 Idiots was a mix of everything. A little bit of comedy, a little bit of drama, a little bit of realism, a little bit of romanticism, 3 Idiots has it all! No one can forget Ranchhoddas "Rancho" Shamladas Chhanchad's (Aamir Khan) hilarious times at the Imperial College of Engineering, where he makes friends in the form of Farhan (R. Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi). Here he makes Professor Viru "Virus" Sahastrabuddhe's (Boman Irani) life hell as he keeps causing trouble in Chatur "Silencer" Ramalingam (Omi Vaidya). It's hard to forget the famous "balatkar" speech, orso we think, at BollyCurry.
Partner brings together the hit duo Govinda and David Dhawan along with Salman Khan. Prem (Salman Khan) meets Bhaskar Diwakar Chaudhary (Govinda), who loves his boss Priya Jaisingh (Katrina Kaif), but is unable to express this love. Being Love Guru, Prem eventually decides to help Bhaskar. He also meets Naina (Lara Dutta) and Chhota Don (Rajpal Yadav). He falls in love with Naina, who is always running from Chhota Don. The story and the comedy revolves around Prem's attempts to get Naina and his attempts to help Bhaskar become a sophisticated man who Priya would like, though Priya falls in love with the simpleton Bhaskar. Bound to make you emotional and also to make you laugh, Partner is a complete package.
Finally, we bring to you a small budget, but big laughter movie, Tere Bin Laden. Ali Hassan (Ali Zafar) is a Pakistani reporter who wants to migrate to US for a better life, but on his way there he ends up scaring his fellow passengers and flight crew members when he uses the words "hijack" and "bomb" too many times during his audition. He is deported back to Pakistan, is refused a visa 6 times in 7 years, and he has lost all hope. Then he meets Noora (Pradhuman Singh), who looks like Osama Bin Laden and decides to make a fake Osama tape to fulfill his dreams. Ali Hassan's antics are sure to keep you laughing and we at BollyCurry strongly recommend that you go and watch this movie.
It's Let's Laugh Day and hence, BollyCurry, has decided that today we're all going to have some masti, some fun, and laugh loads. Go and watch Bollywood's best comedy films. We only named a few out of the plenty that are out there!But remember don't just laugh because it's Let's Laugh Day. Laugh everyday of your life because as Charlie Chaplin has said, "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
