This wedding season, BollyCurry offers you a ride
through the most eminent wedding scenarios of Bollywood. It is a known
fact that Punjabi weddings are the liveliest of the lot, thanks to their
share of butter-chicken and vodka-whisky. So how can Bollywood fall
behind when it comes to getting drunk? Read below for some of the best
shot scenes of actors getting drunk on-screen, unplugged.
First on the list is the legendary Angry Young Man of B-Town,
Amitabh Bachchan, in Amar Akbar Anthony
his famous anger fits is replaced with a hilarious bouts of humour.
After being beaten, Anthony's (Bachchan) heart to heart conversation
with his own reflection erupts bouts of laughter from the audience. With
his advice of caution, his "told you so" and him bandaging the mirror
for his own benefit, Bachchan took the aftereffects of drinking to a
whole new level of comedy.
Next up we have the celebrated Indian maestro who excelled in his share of tragic films - Dilip Kumar. Devdas
of the most enduring films of Indian cinema and a lot of it is due to
the attribution of Kumar. Throughout the movie, Kumar plays the role of a
heartbroken man who drowns himself in the respite of alcohol. The
excellent manner in which Kumar portrayed the character of Devdas was
one of the reasons why the movie is an all time classic.
After a serious drama, we have another scene that will tickle your funny bones - Dharmendra Singh Deol in Sholay.
high, climbing the water tank, creating a hill out of a mole for the
whole village to see and finally winning the girl's hand for marriage is
not something you see every day, and it came as naturally to Dharmendra
as he would've been kicking some goons around, added with a welcoming
touch of hilarity.
comes to characters that play drunkards, people cannot move on without
mentioning the one name that rules people's hearts, drunk or otherwise
- Shah Rukh Khan. In Devdas
(2002), Khan re-enacted and brought
to life the character of Devdas, only with an added pinch of his own
style, as well as the flavor of modernity. The scene where he grieves
over how everyone wants him to give up all that is important to him
strikes a heartbreaking chord with the audience, leaving viewers full of
sympathy for the man who lost it all.
wanting to let the men steal the show, the last name on list is that of
an actress who is currently giving the top dogs of the industry a run
for their money - Deepika Padukone in Cocktail
the rolling of the introductory credits to the scene where she vents
her frustration in getting drunk and wasted, Padukone nails it all with
impeccability. Shedding the Plain Jane image, she turned innumerable
heads with that drunk-chic avatar of hers.
Apart from the above listed names, there are a few others who ought to be mentioned - Rajesh Khanna in Anand, Amitabh Bachchan in Sharabi, Kajol Devgn in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta in Kal Ho Naa Ho, and Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi in Munnabhai M.B.B.S.
