Written by Guncha Khanna

We all know about Golmaal and Andaz Apna Apna as some classic comedies of Bollywood of all times. However, there were some movies that couldn’t do extremely well at the box office but were as good as any other class comedy. Since summer vacations are still going on, we thought why not give you a list of some lesser known comedies of Bollywood, some old – some new,  that one must watch.

  1. Do Dooni Chaar

Do Dooni Chaar is a 2010 Indian Hindi comedy-drama film produced by Arindam Chaudhuri, directed by Habib Faisal, and stars Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Aditi Vasudev and Archit Krishna in the lead roles. The film is about a middle-class school teacher who tries to keep his wife and children happy in inflationary times and dreams of buying a car. Quite funny and interesting.

  1. Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana

Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is a 2012 Indian comedy film produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Siddharth Roy Kapur and Anurag Kashyap and directed by Sameer Sharma. The story revolves around Omi, who after deceiving a gangster in London, flees to India. When he finds out that his family’s old restaurant is in a crisis, he decides to rediscover a secret recipe that will change their fortunes. It’s funny how a simple recipe is the whole plot of the movie.

  1. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is a 1983 Hindi comedy film directed by Kundan Shah. It is a dark satire on the rampant corruption in Indian politics, bureaucracy, news media and business, and stars an ensemble cast that includes the likes of Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Satish Shah, Satish Kaushik, Bhakti Barve and Neena Gupta. Ask your mom, and she would definitely know.

The story revolves around two womanisers who are surprised when their nerdy friend wins a beautiful girl’s heart. They then set into motion a wild and devious plot to break the lovebirds apart. A different and interesting story.

movie 4

  1. Rafoo Chakkar

Rafoo Chakkar is a 1975 Indian Hindi movie produced by Nadiadwala and directed by Narender Bedi. The movie was inspired by the American film Some Like It Hot. Even though it was a hit, it’s not really known much in today’s Bollywood world.
