like that..

there is a scene in 'Jaane bhi do yaaron' which truly deserves to go down the annals of history as probably one of the best filmed comic scene in hindi movies...
those familiar with the movie might already have guessed it... the 'Mahabharatha' scene..
If there was ever a cinematic moment which deserved the word 'mad', then that was it...
Also, one more movie comes to my mind when I talk of hindi comedies... 'Andaaz Apna Apna'..
Now this is where everybody goes berserk.... if there was ever a movie whose climax was in true sense the 'finale' this was it... you just begin to wonder..how mad can this get.. and there you are..
crime master Gogo.. diamonds... damsels in distress... sasur-ji in trouble from his identical twin... goondas with guns.... Aamir and salman at their comic best... Aamir especially is plain crazy...
It just couldn't get any better... and each time I watch it.. it amuses me even more.

Watching movies is an experience... there are some which you watch alone.. and yet others where it doesn't matter whom you watch it with.. but yes.. fun is fun only in proper company.
Laughter works best when shared... You end up enjoying something even more, in later viewings.... but with proper company... One such movie for me was Padosan. I always liked it... but seeing it with someone who knows how to enjoy a film.. who can laugh at all the madness with all the heart.. its just a completly new experience.

Loads of crap comes out every other day bearing the tag 'comedy'. But only few get it right... and when you strike it right ... you have a classic on your hands.

lol! the Mahabharatha scene is comedy masterpiece! I cant help adding Bawarchi (Rajeh Khanna) and Khubsoorat(Rekha) all for the sake of "nirmal aanand" (don't ask "who?" =p)

ADR said...

Bawarchi yes and Khubsoorat always reminds me of 'girl-friend'and 'taash' :D

Also I seemed to have missed out a big one... 'Angoor' sanjeev kumar at his best...:)
