At the end of a long day, all we need is a Laughter Therapy. There’s nothing better than a good laugh. And the comedy movies are like good medicine in any event.
Watching a comedy movie alone can never be as exciting as in a group. But the trouble comes when you have to choose a film that both you and your significant other won’t find repulsive or unexciting. And most of the movies that seem funny often end up being too crude and full of inappropriate language.
So, here are the top 10 clean comedy movies for a good laugh
After Sholay, Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan together in a single film, it had to be epic! The love triangle, clashes, situational humor, and most of all, the character acting done by Om Prakash made this film absolutely hilarious.
2. Golmaal (The Original One)
Golmaal is considered as one of the best comedy movies ever made in Bollywood. A job hunt, a hockey match, a fake mustache… confusion was never so funny. Utpal Dutt’s cacophonous laughter and shrieks are still a legend.
The epic song battle between Sunil Dutt and Mahmood– they did it before song battles became cool! And made us laugh at the same time. This is the movie we can watch any number of times, and still not get bored of it.
4. Chachi 420
The desperation of a divorced man to be with his only child forces him to take the guise of the child’s nanny. Situations get really messy when a father-in-law falls in love with his son-in-law disguised as a lady(Chachi 420).
While the film fared averagely when it hit the screens, but it still holds the reputation of being a cult classic. The dialogue of this movie has been quoted, re-quoted and even inducted into modern conversation and culture also. That’s the greatness of this amazing comedy film.
Hungama without a doubt is one of the best Bollywood comedy films. If you wish to enjoy a laughter-filled evening with your family, this is a must-watch. This one should rank high on your watch list.
7. Hera Pheri
Three broke friends, a lot of debt, a wrong number, and the consequent kidnapping that ensues, Hera Pheri is a laughter riot and has some really good acting by the lead trio. Throw in a side plot involving a wrong phone call and a kidnapping and you know you are hurtling towards a typical Priyadarshan climax full of confusion and deception.
Endearing as a character, and hilarious as a plot, Munna Bhai became a popular figure among all the ‘Bhais’ of Mumbai. There were many aping his style and sense of humor, and the film itself became a thumping success.
In 2006, Priyadarshan directed Malamaal Weekly and the movie was well-appreciated and received positive reviews by the audience. Although, there were multiple actors Paresh Rawal and Om Puri played the lead roles that took the movie to the highest level comedy.
One of the biggest blockbusters which contained many memorable dialogues and became the gold standard in masala movies in Bollywood. Three siblings Amar, Akbar, and Anthony grew up independently separated in a park having no knowledge of one another. But reunited when coincidently they all give blood at the same hospital. This film should be on the top of your watch list if you enjoy clean and classy comedies.
