Here Are 10 Best Telugu Comedy Films That Are Available On Amazon Prime
Hello Guru Prema Kosame
Among the recently released films, Ram Pothineni’s Hello Guru Prema Kosame stands out as a thorough comedy and it has Prakash Raj delivering some great comic one-liners as well along with Ram. This movie keeps you glued to the screen with its funny situations and one-liners, throughout the film.
Nani’s Gang leader
Even though movie did not become a box office success as much as Nani or his fans expected, movie with Vikram Kumar mark comedy scenes provides great entertainment. Actresses like Lakshmi, Saranya steal the show along with Nani with their comic timing. Nani as Pencil Parthasarathy makes a lasting impression on us too. For some films box office collections shouldn’t be the end all, to judge their quality. This Gangleader is a true family entertainer.
Again a film that couldn’t make a mark as high as expected at the box office. But today, this movie is revered as cult classic. Chiranjeevi and Jandhyala delivered their absolute best as actor and director – writer. This movie is shouldered entirely only Chiranjeevi’s comic timing and the star delivers big time. How can anyone not like Pond … James Pond, who tries hard to present himself as a serious investigator but fails at keeping it serious despite being clever and highly skilled.
Paramanandayya Shishyula Kadha
An old classic that has every noticeable comedian from bygone era of Telugu Cinema, except for Ramana Reddy and Relangi. It has Padmanabham, Rajababu, Allu Ramalingayya headlining the casting even though there are actors like NTR, Chittoor V. Nagayya and KR Vijaya among the ensemble. Movie is based on popular stories of one guru Paramanandayya and his disciples who are dumber than the dumbest people. But their actions always help others while end up creating problems for them. You won’t notice the runtime or 60’s-ness in the screenplay at all.
Nani acquired family audiences support with this movie. Nithya Menen became one of the busy actresses in Telugu Cinema, with this film. Highlight of it all, Tagubothu Ramesh became a popular actor with this film. He became a go-to guy for drunkard person roles after a senior comedian like MS Narayana. This movie remains to be still fresh and it might remain so, for years to come as well.
An absolute classic entertainer. A thorough and thorough comedy and it should test of time for many ages now. Movie is heading towards completing 60 years of release but still it feels like a fresh comedy. NTR, ANR, Savithri, SVR, Jamuna, Ramana Reddy and most importantly, Suryakanthamma as Gundamma made this film an evergreen classic for ages. This film is filled with quotable quotes and one-liners.
Venkatesh is one senior hero after Chiranjeevi who got family audiences acceptance as an actor who can pull off comedy easily. While all senior heroes are good in acting in comic roles, Venkatesh stands at least one foot ahead off others as he did so many films with comedy as the major base emotion. Chintakayala Ravi is no different and it is a Venky-mark entertainer.
Kids’ films don’t have to have them suffering through some huge problems. They can just show them trying to cope up with a serious situation in comical way or true to their age style too. Little Soldiers proved that 25 years ago and it still can prove that point for another 25 years. Don’t miss the message movie delivers while being funny, “never lose hope!”
