Hera Pheri (2000)

We don’t think many comedy movies in Bollywood topped the level of Hera Pheri or its sequel Phir Hera Pheri (2006). With Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal in the lead, this movie became a cult classic and went on to win multiple filmfare awards. The movie revolves around three lower middle-class residents who are in desperate need of money – which leads to some seriously funny situations. Hera Pheri will become your absolute favorite and will never be too much even after multiple watches. Moreover, you would relate more to the rapidly spreading sticker and meme game revolving around this movie!

Chup Chup Ke (2006)

Directed by Priyadarshan, Chup Chup Ke is a masterpiece of a movie that has everything from drama and comedy to emotions and morals. The storyline doesn’t really make much sense but it does succeed in providing back to back comedy which will have you laughing non-stop. This movie is a family entertainer and has comedy legends like Rajpal Yadav and Paresh Rawal who steal the cake with their expressions and dialogue delivery.

Welcome (2007) 

Another family entertainer, Welcome is one of the first comedy movies in Bollywood that come to mind when thinking about some of the treasures that this industry has produced. The brilliant cast of this movie like Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Sanjay Mishra take it to the top of its game. It is entertaining, hilarious, oozes talent and is just unforgettable. Welcome is a story of mafia brothers on a mission to give their sister in marriage to a respectable household.

Dhamaal (2007) 

When four broke and homeless people learn about some hidden treasure, they are determined to find it no matter what.
