Why Comedy Movies are Losing the Real Comic Effect?


The quality of comedy in the Hindi film industry is deteriorating with every passing day. Pure humorous movies are a rarity in the fraternity. The sleaze factor has increased in the movies. I feel like tearing my hair apart when I think of comedy movies in Bollwoodand 2012! I had no idea that the standards of slapstick comedy have further reduced. I really miss watching a good comedy film. The feelings of anger were ignited when I had to watch ‘GaliGali Mein ChorHai.’ It is supposed to be an amusing take on the corruption that is prevalent in India. Somebody please tell the makers of these movies that this kind of cinema is slumber producing. An item number by Veena Malik is not enough to save this movie and I think it can find a place in a list like not-so-top comedy movies of 2012. Another movie that continued fuelling my anger was Housefull 2. The success of this movie has proved that the genre of decent comedy is dying a slow death in our cinema. People are no more interested in quality and the presence of some stars is enough for them to enjoy a movie. The movie collected an opening amount of nearly 44 crores. Thankfully,Why Comedy Movies are Losing the Real Comic Effect? Articles the movie did not secure a membership in the 100 crores club. A great deal of hype would have been generated over that as well. Some customer reviews have bluntly pointed out that overacting¬†pacman 30th aniversary cannot illicit laughter. I hope the concerned actors take note and ensure that it is implemented in their future performances. What is in store for 2013? The scenario for 2013 does not look very promising. Chennai Express is up for release. For the first time, SRK and RohitShetty have collaborated for a movie. Lets wait and watch if this pairing can present quality comedy rather than mediocrity served on a platter. Though, consumer ratingson the trailer of the movie indicate that people are excited about this one. To clear a point, flying cars are not funny. Another movie that comes out in 2013 is ‘Himmatwala’. I hope the audience does not require ‘himmat’ to watch this movie.

. In the overseas market, the film has definitely opened as per expectations. People may pose an argument that raunchy or not, the film elicits laughter. The point is that the fine line between sleazy and funny is diminishing. It is becoming difficult to distinguish between funny and vulgar. The time of clean comedies is long gone. It is mixed with another genre to bring out the appeal. A clean 2013? The¬†upcoming comedy moviesof 2013 seem to be far better than the ones coming from Bollywood. The much awaited sequel, ‘Despicable Me 2’ releases and it has surely excited all animation movie lovers. The mix of comedy and animation seems to be very thrilling. By the looks of it, I think this is one of the promising movies of 2013. Smurfs 2 is another movie that has a shot of being one of the highest grossing movies of 2013. I am glad that the raunchy factor is less in 2013. For once, I can enjoy a comedy movie with my family.
