The movie where Fawad Khan played a royal prince (and who was better than him) and fell in love with the quirky Sonam Kapoor! This movie also proved that Kirron Kher deserves trophies when it comes to playing cool moms!
It may be Rani’s (Kangana Ranaut) transformation story, but this simple story is also a great pick-up movie to watch. Maybe Rani’s naïve perspective added humor to a situation that never seemed funny. From getting mugged in a foreign country or ending up in a strip club, it’s a fun ride!
15. English Vinglish
This was the movie that brought the biggest audience to the fore in Indian cinema, but it’s the “housewife” that filmmakers tend to forget. The problems facing Indian housewives may never seem like big problems to other families, but that doesn’t mean they should be taken lightly.
16. Namastey London
From an introduction to Katrina Kaif’s village life to an iconic rugby match, the film is full of moments that will make you laugh out loud or get your heart pounding with renewed patriotism. It also helps that Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif look great together, and Himesh Reshammiya delivered one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.
The film was a very realistic portrayal of what it’s like to be a Bengali and a co-dependent parent. The movie is interesting because when it comes to topics like age and digestive issues, it’s very relevant to the situation presented, and it’s also one of Deepika’s best performances of all time.

Additionally, the main lead is an adorable dog; isn’t that what you want at the end of a tough day?

The master of straight-faced humor was Amol Palekar. Despite having a straightforward plot and a focus on false identities, this film managed to present a laughing riot.
27. Vicky Donor
This film, which had a rather odd subject, was masterfully performed by the entire cast. Additionally, the chemistry between Dr. Chaddha (Anu Kapoor) and Vicky (Ayushmann Khurrana) was far superior to that of the major actors. The coolest granny ever wins the award for this movie as well!
Given how many classic films are included on this list, it is simple to conclude that Bollywood had a superior sense of comedy in the past. And this romantic comedy (remember the tune Mere Saamne Wali Khidki Mein) does it justice.

Nobody anticipated the film to become such a hit, but it did! The irritated boyfriend’s iconic speech is on par with Chatur’s in 3 idiots, despite being clearly distorted in its depiction of relationship dynamics.

46. Andaz Apna Apna
Andaaz Apna Apna unquestionably qualifies. It was a movie that first had poor box office performance, but it has now become a crowd-pleasing classic.

The only issue is that he fails to inform the car’s illustrious owner. A breathless, rough, and erratic ride starts. For one incredible night, a naïve Rusy must avoid gunfire and bouncers while assuming the role of a perfect father.

50. Khichdi: The Movie
Narrated by Jacky and Chakki, the two sane children of the hilariously outlandish Parekh family. The film Khichdi is about a group of endearing misfits with a snail’s intellect and a hare-brained dream. Himanshu, Hansa’s brother, was born with the absurd dream of creating a legendary love tale. The fact that he has no romantic relationships and is unable to win over any sane woman is an entirely different thing.
However, Babuji’s oversimplified proclamation that for every stupid Praful, a stupider Hansa is produced proves to be accurate. As the title suggests, it’s all a ‘khichdi.’
I hope these recommendations helped you lay back after a stressful day. Tip: best enjoyed with your comfort food and a loved one to share the laughter!
