Choosing the funniest films to have ever appeared on screen is a subjective and quite honestly arbitrary process. Regardless of one’s liking for cinematic humor, a laugh is a laugh. In Bollywood, Akshay Kumar is the only action superstar that shines at comedy. He has appeared in films that have established him as India’s most commercially successful comedy actors. Akshay has acted in some hilarious films that have gone on to become cult favorites and are comedy gold. So, here are the top comedies from the actor that you should watch.
- Raksha Bandhan
Raksha Bandhan is the newest addition to Akshay’s list of comedy-drama movies. Aanand L. Rai’s directorial movie portrays the actor in the role of Lala Kedarnath He is the eldest brother of 4 sisters who runs a chaat shop. Lala promises his dying mother that he would get married only after marrying his sisters into suitable homes. The narrative shows how he juggles his relationship with his childhood love Sapna and responsibilities towards his family. Raksha Bandhan also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Sadia Khateeb, Deepika Khanna, and Smrithi Srikanth among others in lead roles. The movie is set for a digital premiere on ZEE5 Global on 5th October 2022.
- Bachchhan Paandey
With a stone stare and tough attire, Akshay plays the role of Daku Bachchan Pandey. Since violence is a major topic of “Bachchan Pandey,” some of the scenes in the film are downright horrifying. At the same time, the film features amusing jokes from Arshad Warsi, Sanjay Mishra, and Pankaj Tripathi that will amuse you. Farhad Samji is in charge of directing the comedy-action film. The cast includes Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi, Jacqueline Fernandez, Pankaj Tripathi, Prateik Babbar, and Sanjay Mishra.
- Good Newzz
Another great addition to the list of Hindi movies in the comedy genre. The movie plot is unique and has a lot of emotional scenes. Apart from Kumar the film also stars Kareena Kapoor, Diljeet Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in key roles. Directed by Raj Mehta, the film touches on several issues, including IVF, the difficulties expectant moms face, the value placed on blood ties, and many others. The film’s easygoing comedy manages to uncover genuine humor and sadness in a high-concept idea that is entirely believable in real life and makes it a must-watch movie.
Asif, the role that Kumar portrays, is a devoted husband who will do anything to make his wife Rashmi (Kiara Advani) happy. In an odd turn of events, the family home experiences weird occurrences as the couple plans to visit Kiara’s parents on their 25th wedding anniversary. In addition, Asif is showing signs of becoming a spiteful spirit, Laxmii, which is not who he claims to be. While also attempting to be a parody of long-held beliefs and biases, the film contains many funny moments. No doubt it’s worth watching!
- Housefull 4
Sajid Khan knows how to get the most out of Akshay and brings out the best in him in Housefull 4. One of the most difficult things to achieve is a facial comedy, and Kumar succeeds in this. Even when he is silent, he is entertaining. Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbabanda, Pooja Hegde, Chunky Panday, Johnny Lever, Ranjeet, Jamie Lever, and Rana Dagubatti are among the star-studded cast members of the movie. The pleasure in Housefull 4 is blatant, outrageous, and ridiculous. It has been a while since there was a genuine comedy flick that was just humor, nothing else. An ideal weekend watch!
