Chupke Chupke (1975)
Chupke Chupke is an all-time favourite for many. With impeccable performances by Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Asrani and Om Prakash, the comedy-drama will lighten up a dull day and boost your spirits when you are feeling low. It has Dharmendra’s character Pyaare Mohan playing a prank on his brother-in-law who is obsessed with the purity of a language. The witty banter between him and Om Prakash is one of the high points of the comedy caper. Songs Lyrics 4 you
A story of identical twins and mistaken identities, based on Shakespeare’s play ‘A Comedy of Errors’, Angoor is one of the finest Bollywood comedies ever made. Be it Sanjeev Kumar’s straight-faced dialogue delivery or Deven Verma’s impeccable expressions, everything about the film is flawless.

Andaz Apna Apna (1994)

Dil Chahta Hai (2001)
Dil Chahta Hai is one of the best bromance films ever made in Bollywood. Farhan Akhtar sketched three most relatable characters in Sid (Akshaye Khanna), Akash (Aamir Khan) and Sameer (Saif Ali Khan). He showcased Indian youth the way it is. Even the love stories in this atypical coming-of-age are very interesting. They are different yet relatable.
Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003)
Munna Bhai M.B.B.S introduced movie buffs to a new form of ‘bhaigiri’ and highlighted how sometimes people who are unwell could also be treated with love instead of the strict behaviour of the doctors. The phrase ‘Jaadu Ki Jhappi’ became popular after this movie.
Jab We Met (2007)
“Main Apni Favourite Hoon”, “Akeli Ladki Khuli Tijori Ki Tarah Hoti Hai” and “Sikhni Hoon Main Bhatinda Ki” are some of the dialogues which seeped into our daily conversations after Imtiaz Ali introduced us to the girl-next-door Geet (Kareena Kapoor Khan) and suave Aditya Kashyap (Shahid Kapoor) in Jab We Met. Even today, the film finds a place in the list of movies which can brighten up your dull day.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011)
If you liked watching the bonding between friends in Dil Chahta Hai, watch Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara too. It is a story of three friends who take a bachelor’s trip to Spain.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015)
In Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Ayushmann Khurrana plays a frustrated middle-class husband Prem Prakash Tiwari who marries an overweight Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar) because of family pressure. With references to Kumar Sanu, cassette players and VCDs, the film invoked 90s nostalgia. Watch this one if you are looking for a light entertainer, some great performances not just by the lead actors but also by the supporting cast and good music.
