Curling up with a nice meal and a comedy movie on Netflix or any other streaming platform is the solution to many adulting woes.

Check out some of the most highly sought comedy movies on Netflix to make it through the week:

Chup Chup Ke (2006)

For Rajpal Yadav fans, this is one romantic comedy movie on Netflix you cannot miss out on. A fun family entertainer, the humour of Chup Chup Ke has been immortalised in the online world with a plethora of fun memes. It’s the story of Jeetu (Shahid Kapoor), who is down on his luck and constantly loses money in business investments. After incurring a high debt, he decides to end his life by jumping into the river in front of a crowd so that his father can pay off his debts with insurance money.

Instead of drowning, he gets swept off into the sea, and Gundiya (Paresh Rawal) and Bandya (Rajpal Yadav), a couple of fishermen, rescue him.

He finds himself working at Prabhat Singh Chauhan’s (Om Puri) house as a servant because Gundiya and Bandya owe him money. That’s where he meets Meenakshi (Neha Dhupia) and Shruti (Kareena Kapoor), with whom his love story begins on a comedic note.

Rawal and Yadav are powerhouses of comedy. A bubbly Shahid Kapoor is a delight to watch as Jeet, whose web of lies gets convoluted with each conversation. The comedy is clean and natural, making it a fun watch for all ages.

The Other Guys (2010)

This movie overflows with hilarity from beginning to end. It’s a riff fest between Alan (Will Ferrell) and Terry (Mark Wahlberg), a pair of detectives at NYPD. They are at the bottom of the hierarchy of detectives and are trying to rise up the ranks by impressing the top detectives in the department, P.K. Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) and Christopher (Dwayne Johnson).

The great chemistry between Ferrell and Wahlberg underlines this buddy cop comedy. One-liners, witty remarks, and satirical commentary accompany an embezzlement scheme gone wrong.

While trying to investigate this, the cops experience some upheavals in their personal lives, with exes bringing in some hilarious twists. The film has a number of quotable lines that will provide nonstop entertainment.

This is the End (2013)

This horror comedy movie on Netflix is set in James Franco’s house. Six celebrities in LA find themselves stranded at his house when an apocalyptic event occurs during his housewarming party. With some people at the party waking up severely hungover, the ration of food and water fails to become a priority. 

There are demons, earthquakes, sinkholes, exorcisms, and so much more in this strangely hilarious movie in which the entire cast is playing an over-the-top version of themselves.

The self-indulgent humour exacerbates the ridiculousness of the situation and insults the celebrities throw at each other. But under all the inane comedy is a commentary on celebrity culture and religion. Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Seth Rogen, Rihanna, Paul Rudd, Channing Tatum – the list of stars in this comedy film is endless. And they all participate in the most rib-tickling conversations.

If you want to watch a comedy movie on Netflix that is a two hours laugh fest and features actors who don't take themselves seriously, this is the movie for you.

Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017)

This comedy movie is as sweet as Barfi and as funny as any rom-com of the early 2000s. It is a family entertainer that combines the innocence of small-town love with authentic situational humour. Bareilly Ki Barfi builds a small world filled to the brim with wit, nuance, and warmth.

Bitti (Kriti Sanon) is a witty and zealous girl from Bareilly whose parents are worried about her marriage prospects. Pankaj Tripathi, who plays her father, has just the right quick-witted responses to her disdain for marriage, and his comedic timing is impeccable.

Bitti runs away from home, and while at the train station, she reads a book called Bareilly Ki Barfi, which makes her feel heard because Barfi is a character she thinks was based on her. She decides to track down the author, Pritam Vidrohi (Rajkummar Rao) because she loves how much he appreciates Barfi in the book.

When she runs into Chirag Dubey (Ayushmann Khurrana), who owns the printing press where the book was published, they start bonding.

Chirag acts as Bitti’s messenger as she sends love letters to Pritam. But Chirag is actually the author, not Pritam, and he is head-over-heels in love with Bitti.

The comedy amps up when Chirag convinces Pritam, a simple, timid man, to be so obnoxious that Bitti would never pick him. His rash behaviour, hooligan-esque conduct, and constant switching from meek to mean provide comedic gold.

Luka Chuppi (2019)

Here’s another romantic comedy movie starring Kriti Sanon in a small-town romance. Guddu Shukla (Kartik Aaryan) and Rashmi (Sanon) fall in love while working together as news reporters in Mathura. Rashmi brings her progressive values to their romance by suggesting a live-in relationship first. With help from Abbas (Aparshakti Khurana), their co-worker and friend, they live together during a business trip in Gwalior.

Fooling neighbours in their conservative society, fighting off nitpicky family members such as the ever-so-hilarious Babulal (Pankaj Tripathi), and causing chaos in Guddu’s family, as well as fighting a larger political inclination towards traditional marriage — Guddu and Rashmi certainly have their work cut out for them. 

The movie treats these issues with a light touch, with the couple’s every attempt to have their relationship accepted ending in a fiasco. Their chemistry and the relatable and funny jibes at non-traditional romances make this comedy movie on Netflix a laugh riot.
