Chachi 420 (1997)

Kamal Haasan helmed and starred in this remake of the 1996 Tamil film Avvai Shanmughi about a man who impersonates an elderly nanny to win back his wife (Tabu) and daughter (Fatima Sana Shaikh) to great comic effect, including accidentally seducing his former father-in-law (Amrish Puri).

Haseena Maan Jayegi (1999)

Sanjay Dutt and Govinda starred in this David Dhawan comedy about two young men who are always up to no good, pulling one prank after another on a host of people, including their exasperated father.

Baadshah (1999)

While essentially an Abbas-Mustan thriller, the film features far too many moments of comedic value to not be considered a comedy. It is a testament of how good a comic actor Shah Rukh Khan is, and of Johny Lever's mere presence being enough to elevate a scene.
