    16 Best Comedy Movies Of Bollywood

    YouTube

    While drama-filled motivational and inspirational films were always done right, We personally believe that Bollywood has evolved significantly when it comes to comedy movies. There was a time when comedy was all about lame jokes, sexist comments, fake background laughs, and even double meaning dialogues that were frankly, gross. Well, we have to accept that a lot has changed over time and Bollywood writers have a better approach towards comedy that involves realistic plots and sketches. Here are some of the best Bollywood funny movies that we think you can watch and re-watch several times.

    Hera Pheri

    Three flatmates accidentally get involved in a kidnapping case that guarantees them a lot of money without harming anyone. Who wouldn’t take it, right? Well, we wouldn’t if we knew there’d be so many errors of comedy! Hera Pheri is undoubtedly one of the best Bollywood comedy movies of all time and most of its dialogues are used as memes even today. Why? Because Ye Baburao ka style hai!
