One formula of Bollywood movies has always seemed to work
really well, so for this month and the next, BollyCurry has decided to
analyze this well-tried formula. As you can tell by the title we are analyzing
the very hilarious comic bromance
of Bollywood movies! Some have been used more
than once, while others not so much. This month, BollyCurry brings to you some
of the most bromantic jodis
from the 1990s
to the early 2000s.
First up is the ever hilarious bromantic jodi
of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan from Andaz Apna Apna
(1994). It seems that
the inception of fighting, hating, and then joining forces began with this
comic twosome. From the beginning, Amar (Aamir Khan) and Prem (Salman Khan),
read as Amar Prem, were at loggerheads with each other since they both wanted
to marry the rich girl. Their fights proved to be the comic backbone of the
movie as people laughed at Amar as a fake patient and Prem as a fake doctor or
at the two as fake nawabs. This bromance was loved widely because many
people felt that there was no acting involved and that Aamir and Salman were
just being themselves!
greedy, but we definitely want to see this hit twosome come back in some
project together to fight with each other, but then gang up to save the
It seems Salman Khan is more than happy to appear with any actor in a comedy movie. After Aamir Khan, another actor that Salman
created a comic jodi with was Sanjay
Dutt in Chal Mere Bhai (2000). Their
funny and loving nature proved to be quite different than most bromantic jodis. Salman as the younger, child-like,
hilarious brother created a great rapport with Sanjay as the older, responsible,
brooding brother. Their jodi together
was loving, hilarious, and made you just want to get together and have a good
say it: we're greedy and we wanted them together in more movies because they
weren't just comic, they were emotional, they were loving, and they shared a
great rapport both onscreen and offscreen.
Next up is the funny and serious jodi
of Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff. Appearing together in thirteen
movies, this hit twosome has brought every possible emotion out in
Since the beginning, Anil has always played the funny, child-like, comic
character matched with Jackie's quiet, serious, strong character. But
them together and you have a formula for success. Whether it be Anil's
to bring Jackie together with his love in Ram
(1989) or their antics to escape dressed as gorillas in Karma
(1986), this jodi
is sure to make you laugh. They have come together time and
time again to prove that they are the undisputed comic jodi
. A hit jodi
indeed as they came together after
almost 12 years to do two movies in 2013.
is more than satisfied with all the movies this hit jodi has appeared in, though
we wished that for once Jackie had played the comic, child-like character and
Anil the serious, brooding character.
Remember the hilarious Haseena
(1999), Jodi No. 1
and Ek Aur Ek Gyarah
was one thing all three movies had in common: Govinda and Sanjay Dutt. Of course,
the rhyming or one breath names were also common: Sonu Monu of Haseena Maan Jaayegi
, Jai Veeru of Jodi No. 1
, and Tara Sitara of Ek Aur Ek Gyarah
. This hit bromantic jodi
were friends and brothers who stood
by each other through thick and thin, often giving viewers a myriad of
hilarious scenes in the process. They would always end up running from
someone or the other
and taking on assumed identities to woo the females paired opposite
would then end up in a crisis due to their assumed identities where,
the run-of-the-mill action, they would save the day with their comic
intelligence. This jodi
together in other movies as well, but those have been action flicks versus these comic flicks.
guilty of being greedy, but we really wished that we had at least 10 or 11
films with this unassuming, being-in-the-wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time hit
When we talk about Govinda how can we forget his
with Kader Khan?!!
This hit jodi
is so popular that at
one time they appeared in every movie together. Acting in over forty movies together,
Kader Khan often played the role of a father or a chacha
to Govinda. Yet their bromance was always hilarious and
comic, whether it be Govinda's character running away from Kader Khan's
character or the two working together to solve the problems in the movies. They
have always managed to make anything hilarious, no matter the situation
and there is no way any viewer can watch their movie without laughing. The
movies often also had hilarious songs, which just enhanced the comic timing. This bromantic jodi
of the biggest hits that could ever be.
ourselves here as we are no longer greedy. After appearing in over 40 films together
we believe that we have seen this jodi together in every way possible!
Now we bring forward a bromantic threesome, the only one of
this list. They are Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal
from the hit
movie Hera Pheri
(2000) and the
semi-hit Phir Hera Pheri
first came out, who knew
that this bromance would become so loved. Raju (Akshay Kumar) and Shyam's
(Suniel Shetty) fights along with Baburao's (Paresh Rawal) hilarious comments made
this threesome much loved. After six years they came together again in Phir Hera Pheri
(2006). While the movie
didn't do as well, this bromance was again a super-hit success, which has now
led to the announcement of a third film in the series.
bromance is so comic that we can't wait for the third film in the series! We
hope that they come together in something apart from the Hera Pheri
series as well.
Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan are another hit comic jodi
who have starred in several movies
together. Their bromance often had Saif playing the role of a funny, somewhat
stupid guy while Akshay would play the role of a the more intelligent, quiet guy. Like with
other such bromances, this bromance was also very popular and that is why this jodi
was repeated a couple of times.
Saif's hilarious antics mixed with Akshay's action was a real treat. Whether it
was Main Khiladi Tu Anari
(1994) or Tu Chor Main Sipahi
(1996), these two made
viewers laugh and definitely earned a place in our list of bromantic comedy jodis
at all greedy here as we say it's time to bring the lovely classic time back
when Akshay was playing the action hero and Saif was playing the hilarious
Saif Ali Khan
also made a great hit bromantic jodi with Shah
Rukh Khan in Kal Ho Naa Ho
They really stole the show with their hilarious fake gay jokes, as they set out to make
Naina (Preity Zinta) realize her love for Rohit (Saif Ali Khan) and also
change her perception on life. Their hilarious antics as friends and their
bromance was enough to make any emotional sequence into a hilarious comedy.
They repeated their impeccable comic chemistry as hosts of that year's Filmfare Awards and had
everyone laughing at every small joke and action.
wishing that these two great actors are seen together again soon maybe
doing a Dostana this time, as their bromance is one for the records!
Finally, Paresh Rawal and Johnny Lever, the eternal comic
duo, make this month's list! Appearing in over twenty-five films together, you can
always expect to see something comic when these two appear together in a movie.
Their fights and their friendship always make for a great laugh. Whether it be
a couple of fighting scenes such as in Phir
(2006) or their friendship and working together in Hadh Kar Di Aapne
(2000), their antics
are bound to have you laughing out loud!
We have been
so greedy that we decided to redeem ourselves here a bit more and say that we're
more than happy to have seen this bromance in over 25 films together.
This month we brought to you some of the most popular bromantic jodis from the 1990s and early 2000s.
They are bound to make you laugh in any situation and with any action of
theirs. So here's signing off this month as this writer goes off to write about
another set of comic bromantic jodis from
the mid-2000s to now.
