There is a vast catalogue of Hindi comedy movies listed on Amazon Prime. Choosing which one to watch can be a confusing choice. Here, we mention some tips you can use to make your selection process easier.
There is a wide range of types in the comedy genre. Different types will have different moods and comic elements. Here are some types to help you make your choices easier.
In theatre and art, comedy is used as a medium to attract the audience’s attention as humans tend to gravitate towards the comic. This is their way to use attention to point out to the most pressing issues that we face today and, initiate a dialogue about them. Thus, humour is strategic.
Movies like 3 Idiots, Hindi Medium and so on are some examples of how filmmakers use the element of humour and laughter to direct attention towards reality. Thus, taking movies as a manner of escaping reality, filmmakers, in a way, educate and make people more aware citizens. However, being a consumer of the message- we must exercise care to what we want to accept and what we don’t.
Watch these movies to feel motivated and understand specific issues like- global warming, homophobia etc., in a better and detailed manner. Each person tends to relate to the message in their unique ways, and thus, this can even become a good topic for discussion if you watch the given movie with a group of people.
The comic element of these movies is usually derived from the complications in the way of fulfilment of love between the actor and the actress.
If you want to watch something that does not put a lot of strain on your mind, then this genre of Bollywood films will work for you- this genre of Bollywood films will work for you. This right form of escape is sure to make you laugh and feel happier as you watch the movie.
Slapstick comedies refer to comedies which use awkward bodily actions and embarrassing events to create humour. This kind of humour is usually accompanied by wit and tact like Akshay Kumar's character in Hera Pheri.
This is a simple movie type under this genre and is loved by kids and adults alike. Such movies like Golmaal, Hera Pheri and more will make you cringe but also laugh a lot.
Before you choose a movie, be mindful of the audience you are going to watch it with. If the audience includes children, choose a movie with U or a U/A rating. U means that kids can freely view the content, whereas U/A entails that children below the age of twelve must view the content under the guidance of an adult.
If you are watching a movie with your romantic partner, a romantic comedy or a comedy-drama like Run can be a good option. If watching with friends, comedy-dramas like 3 Idiots can make for a memorable watch. Thus, always think about the people you are going to watch a movie with and then choose the movie.
Many movies seem to be good movies from the titles. However, only when you start watching do you realise that they may not be as good as you thought them to be. Thus, to make a good choice, check ratings and reviews.
Amazon Prime shows IMDb ratings of most movies in its catalogue. Choose the one that has a good rating. Further, read reviews from credible movie reviewing websites and news publications. Some of these include- IMDb, rotten tomatoes, Hindustan Times, First Post, and so on.
Lastly, it is a good idea to view the trailer. Most trailers are available to watch on Amazon Prime itself. They can be as short as one minute or as long as four minutes. They are also easily available on YouTube.
While directors do not limit themselves to a particular genre, it is a good idea to check the director of the movie you are going to watch as the direction has one of the most profound impacts on the viewing experience.
For example- the director of the movie Golmaal has executed the movie in such a way that not only did it make him famous as a director through his cinematic endeavour, but the movie was also loved by the audience.
Choose the ones whose movies you have liked in the past or the ones that are known for their talent. Priyadarshan and Rajkumar Hirani, for example, are good directors who have many great movies, especially comedies, to their credit. The former, for example, is known for situational comedies and the latter is known for his inspirational comedies.
When choosing a good movie to watch, you must look at the star-cast of the movie. While you must be already acquainted with the skills of the famous ones, giving a chance to fresh talent can be refreshing and an enriching experience as well. If you want to go with a movie with new-age artists- check for the artist’s professional background and any critical reviews of their performance if available.
Choosing the movie with a suitable actress/actor can also impact the depth to the story they bring through their performance. For example: Paresh Rawal is best suited for comic roles, seeing him in a thriller might not be the best experience and while Shah Rukh Khan is suited is different roles, many like him as a romantic actor.

With OTT platforms like Amazon Prime, choosing a movie can be confusing because of the sheer variety. However, if you know who is going to watch with you, what you expect from the movie- you will be able to make the right choice. We have provided you with a list which is a mix of some timeless art and some new age comedies- use these for your next movie binge session!
