July 5, 2013, 12:47 pm
Comedy might appear easy onscreen. But in reality, making people laugh continually is a mammoth task. We tell you about the actors whose sharp sense of humor had the viewers in splits.
'Raanjhanaa' has been a hit with the viewers also because of Swara Bhaskar and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. While Swara doesn't mind spouting cuss words, Zeeshan gets to speak some of the best one liners in the film.
Anupam Kher with his flawless acting proves to the viewers why nobody can replace him and why he will continue to be the face of comedy in Bollywood. In 'Special Chabbis', Anupam Kher and Akshay Kumar play con men who dupe people posing as CBI officers.
After wowing fans with his acting skills in comedy caper 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama', Divyendu Sharma was seen in another comedy entertainer 'Chashme Baddoor'. The actor speaks some of the best and interesting lines from the film. What makes his role more impressive is his more tongue-in-cheek shaayris.
'Go Goa Gone', Bollywood's first zom-com found several takers. Event though the film revolves around exploring crime in Goa, it has been dealt with in an interestingly amusing way. The film became an instant hit because of the interesting chemistry between Kunal Khemu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari.
Paresh Rawal needs no introduction. With iconic roles in movies Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, OMG: Oh My God!, De Dana Dan, Hera Pheri to his credit, Paresh Rawal impresses the viewers with his obvious puns. He plays Narayandas, eccentric brother%u2013in-law of Sher Singh (Mahesh Manjrekar) in the film 'Special Chabbis'.
Even though 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola' starred Anushka Sharma and Imran Khan, actors who have a huge fan following, the film, as expected, belongs to Pankaj Kapur. Pankaj's impeccable comic timings and sharp sense of humor can't be ignored. With this film he proves, the veterans don't have any competition.
Ram Kapoor's quick and concrete expressions, and the perfection with which he spouts hilarious and abusive words in the film, make his character stand out. The overweight Punjabi father played by Ram is interesting for the way he yells and criticizes his son.
It is the enthusiasm which Varun Sharma shows in getting familiar with the college life, that makes his character so endearing. In 'Fukrey' he shows he has all the qualities to have movie buffs rolling the aisles.
Vidya Balan, who made headlines for delivering back-to-back hits in 2012, was seen in Rajkumar Gupta's 'Ghanchakkar'. Even though the film left many disappointed, Vidya Balan did justice to her role of a loud and boisterous Punjabi married woman. Her tacky style sense and constant use of the expression, 'Hain?!' did appear funny to many.
Saurabh Shukla essays an extremely serious role that of a judge in 'Jolly LLB'. But his ability to crack jokes to which people can relate to, and at time, speaking in an appropriate tone, have the viewers in splits.
