Comedy Movies In India: Comedy is a communal hug – a “jaadu ki jhappi” as Raju Hirani’s Munnabhai would have it – that Bollywood has churned out in the best of times and bleakest of times. When Hindi cinema is at its inspired high watermark madness, it can be a lot of fun – both for the audience and filmmakers and crew behind the making of the film. Thinking of Half Ticket, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, or Andaz Apna Apna, one often wonders if the cast and crew had as much fun making them as we had to watch them. But in many cases, we do know that it was not all play and party on the sets.
