Kollywood has been entertaining us with all sorts of genres over a long time. But Tamil Comedy Movies have formed the major source of entertainment for the larger audience. Even though there exist numerous forms of humor, but do we care about all of them? For us, comedy means simply where we can laugh. It doesn’t matter which type of comedy is it. Many people have their favorite genre, like action, romance or thriller. But comedy is one genre where every person from child to old can enjoy it without thinking much. Such is the effect of comedy movies.

Evolution of Tamil Comedy Movies

Over the years, Tamil industry has produced multiple comedy movies. And these movies have always given us varied reasons to laugh. But was this the situation many years ago as well? There was a time when hardly few hilarious movies were released in a year. But today, out of every 5 Tamil movies released, 1-2 are comedy movies. And all this is possible because people today have started expressing their interest more towards such comedy genre. Box Office Collections is a proof that these movies are loved more than other genres in every market.

Even actors and actresses have also grown stupendously. They have started moving away from the cliche content and carving out their own niches. While some of them focus on doing action movies more, some like to do movies full of hilarious content. There are many such popular actors who have gained love and attention from audience solely based on their comedy roles. Kamal Haasan and Vijay are 2 of the top actors who have been famous for their comic timing.

Kamal Haasan Comedy

Let’s take an example of Kamal Haasan. He is one of the top Tamil Actors of today. Although he has given superhits in almost all genres, his comedy movies have been blockbusters. Some of his superhit comedies include Apoorva Sagodharargal (1989), Thenali (2000) and Panchathantiram (2002). These movies had such huge openings that people rushed to theatres in crowds to watch them. Apoorva Sagodharargal was a huge success in Tamil and hence was later dubbed in Hindi with the name, “Appu Raja”.

‘Michael Madana Kama Rajan’ is another movie of Kamal which saw him in 4 different roles of Michael, Madana, Kam, and Rajan. Later he did another movie, Dasavathaaram, which saw him in 10 different roles. Playing numerous different roles require huge talent. And Kamal Haasan truly proved that he deserves to be a king of comedy.

‘Chachi 420’ is Kamal’s blockbuster in Bollywood. In this movie, Kamal was duped as his daughter’s Chachi. The comic timing of the movie was perfect. And hence, it gained immense love from the people all around. Below is the list of some of his best comedy movies so far.

Do Only Top Actors Make Best Comedy Movies?

Usually, we see that Actors are given credits for best comedy movies. But neither the main lead nor the director deserves the full credits. It is only due to the whole team’s efforts that the movie becomes successful. And for comedy movie to succeed, each and every actor should have perfect comic timing. Even though actors make huge efforts for a movie, but let’s give some credits to comedians as well. Some of the popular Tamil Comedians are:

  • Yogi Babu
  • Thambi Ramaiah
  • Vivek
  • Karunakaran
  • Senthil
  • Kovai Sarala
  • Santhanam

to name a few. These are some of the comedians whom we all love. These actors are always a treat to watch.
