Even though I am not a movie buff, surprising I have watched all of them, listed the poll.

Voted for hera pheri, but frankly, except Humgama, all are absolutely fantastic. Class acts! Really difficult to choose. I think, if "Padosan" was there, it would have found place in top 3.

Well there are so many of them .. Farooq Sheikh, Sanjeev Kumar, Utpal Dutt, Amol Palekar's movies have been awesome comedies with some good timings..

A few of my favs are : all in the list + angoor + rafoo chakkar (Rishi Kapoor, Gufi Pantel) + chashme badoor + angoor + chashme badoor.

There is one more movie with Farooq, Sajeev Kumar & Utpal Dutt, wherein Farooq Sheikh gets hit by a hockey ball while covering the match for a newspaper. Sanjeev Kumar convinces Farooq to sue his firm for 10 lakh rupees and convinces Farooq Sheikh to feign paralysis. On top of it all the company hires Utpal Dutt as the detective to investigate the case - its hilarious. I am forgeting the movie name - does somebody remember this name??

BTW, from the list it is JBDY

From this list, Golmaal for me! You don't need dialogues at all times to make you laugh or smile here. Just the expressions alone will make you laugh in so many scenes.

I guess what he means is that he is just too split to decide which ONE movie to vote for ...

Its impossible for anyone to not like Comedy !!


And its JBDY for me ... I almost voted for AAA but the difference here is that JBDY is a black comedy and makes a statement about exploitation/corruption yet manages to entertain ..which according to me is the most difficult combination to achieve ....

Well I found "Hera Pheri" as the all time favourite movie than any other Hindi, but then again the competition looks really fierce between all the other Hindi comedy movies...really hard to quote though!
