Comedy is a great equalizer. The humor and wit transform our otherwise dull day to something bright and light. Now that we are in quarantine and the days are getting tougher, a good comedy film can truly be a great stress buster. Malayalam comedies are rich in humor and we can enjoy them on any given day. So here are some out-and-out Malayalam comedies that would make you laugh out loud.
Dasan (Mohanlal) and Vijayan (Sreenivasan) with their quick wit and sarcasm have in fact become companions to the Malayalee audience. Their dreams of building a business empire, them being cheated by Gafoor (Mammukoya) by dumping them at Madras instead of Dubai, their struggle in the city and encounter with Ananthan Nambiar (Thilakan) are all super hilarious and fun to watch. This one is truly a gem of comedies and is a must-watch.

“Thomaskutty… Vittoda” – no Malayalee would be unfamiliar with this dialogue. Not just this, the film is rich with many witty instances that would make you laugh hard.

The way they retort to each other, Appukkuttan’s innocence and how they handle their issues are too hilarious. This film forever will be one enjoyable watch.
