Priyadarshan’s ‘Hera Pheri’ had the deadly combo of Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suneil Shetty in the lead. During its release in the country, the film grossed a whopping Rs. 17,25,00,000.

Andaaz Apna Apna

Andaz Apna Apna

This cult classic featured the now superstars- Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. The film has been a favourite of many. The talks of a sequel to the film are always doing the rounds.

During its release in 1994, the film didn’t fare well at the box office. But over the years its funny one-liners, entertaining drama and melodious songs have turned it into an all-time favourite comedy.

Chennai Express


The Rohit Shetty flick broke several records in India and abroad on its release and became the fastest film to collect Rs 100 crore at the box office.

The film, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone was widely appreciated, with its music, especially “Lungi Dance” by Yo Yo Honey Singh, becoming a rage.
All the Bollywood fans, don’t miss the chance!

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro


Kundan Shah’s multi-starrer ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ with Nasseruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Satish Shah Bhakti Barve and Satish Kaushik is still looked up for the way the scenes were shot. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, a black comedy, is also remembered for its famous Mahabharata scene.

The biggest plus of the film though was it’s clean comedy which made it a hit among all the sections and age groups of the society.

Gol Maal (1979)


Considered to be one of the finest comedy films of all times, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Gol Maal’ is perhaps on top of the list of those born in the 70s. The movie had some of the finest performances by Utpal Dutt and Amol Palekar.

The movie was so good that it’s remake “Bol Bachchan” also became a huge hit, grossing over 100 crores at the box-office.

Padosan (1978)


Padosan was a hilarious love story between two neighbours, played by Sunil Dutt and Saira Banu. Legendary singer Kishore Kumar as Sunil Dutt’s singing teacher and friend was the icing on the cake.

The music of the film was a rage too. An added plus,we say!
