Comedy movies are considered family films. They are not even near to boring even after watching them several times. While the comedy films of today are mostly escapist in nature, some old gems from old times are no less than them. Below are some of Bollywoods’ funniest movies of all time.
1) Andaz Apna Apna
Released in 1994, Andaz Apna Apna is a comedy film directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. The movie stars Salman Khan, Amir Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Paresh Rawal, and Shakti Kapoor in the lead roles. Two boys compete to win the heart of an heiress and in turn, end up protecting her from crimes. While the film fared averagely when it hit the screens, it currently holds the reputation of being a cult classic. The dialogue of this movie has been quoted, re-quoted, and inducted into modern conversation and culture. That’s the greatness of this quirky comedy.
2) Chashme Baddoor
Released in 1981, Chashme Baddoor is a romantic-comedy film starring Farooq Sheikh, Deepti Naval, Rakesh Bedi, Ravi Baswani, and Saeed Jaffrey. The film is directed by Sai Paranipye.

A happy ending is lapped with oodles of laughter.
3) Hera Pheri

4) Gol Maal
