Bollywood simply does not do it as it used to. Recently, the quality of movies has decreased significantly, particularly in the comedy genre. There are fewer and fewer legendary films being released these days, and it’s quite terrible to see that we don’t get that quality stuff any longer.

Back in the 2000s, one memorable film after another was released, and the majority of them are still relevant today. If a movie like Welcome or Hera Pheri appears on TV, you can sure that a lot of people are watching it for the hundredth time.

So, here’s a look back at the films that pushed humour to new heights over a decade ago:

What an incredible film. The plot, the acting, and the realistic depiction of the common person. This film managed to be both hilarious and realistic at the same time.

Anupam Kher and his sons’ deception of Boman Irani into returning the land he illegally took from them is a work of art. What a sweet film that anyone may enjoy with their entire family.

Abhay Deol is one of today’s best and most underappreciated actors. He makes such excellent movies and tells such interesting stories, but he rarely receives the credit he deserves.

He’s so endearing that he had us all cheer for the’superchord’ in this film, and the whole thing is just amazing.

This is one of the most quotable films to ever come out of Bollywood, and the fact that it is still current after more than a decade qualifies it as a classic.

Uday Shetty and Majnu Bhai play some of the most strange roles in the film, yet they work so well together.

And it was around this period that Akshay Kumar appeared in so many films, all of which were flawless.

This film, which is the perfect situational comedy full of miscommunications and visual gags, does not receive the attention it deserves.

Akshay Kumar and John Abraham have more chemistry than many famous Bollywood couples, and their dynamic in this film makes it a must-see.

Furthermore, the entire running around moments with all the women in the home missing each other are enough to make anyone laugh out loud.

The first Golmaal film was a masterpiece, and not simply in comparison to the subsequent sequels. The bizarre plot, the over-the-top acting, and wasooli bhai combine to form an entertaining film.

This should have been a one-hit wonder because the sequels did not add anything to the legacy of the first one.

Vinay Pathak seems to portray a same character in every film he appears in, and he does it really well.

This is another film that we probably haven’t thought about in a long time, but it deserves a lot more recognition. Back in 2007, the low-budget film accomplished a lot, and the entertaining film is certainly worth seeing.

All of Priyadarshan’s films feature a chaotic ending with all of the characters gathered in one area.

Because there was so much miscommunication, so much uncertainty, and so many Anjalis, the film had to climax with a comical battle and the end of a love triangle.

These are the types of wholesome comedies that really need to return.

Please, Bollywood, do better.
