We think that the humor sense of every Indian dad is somewhat similar, but what makes them stand out is their over-dramatic response to weird situations.
Let's look at some of the "Best Dads" of modern Indian Cinema.
1.Gajraj Rao in Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan
When you come out of the closet it is quite natural to face an over-the-top response from your parents, at least in most cases of a typical Indian household. But what actually unfolds when you are caught in a compromising position with your love in a family event? To add up a bit of spiciness to the whole scenario, it's your dad. 'Shankar Tripathi' played by Gajraj Rao holds the honest reaction, dramatic, Indian dad aspect in the whole plot. The character is simple to decode and hence, loved by the masses too.
2. Shah Rukh Khan in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
I guess, the brand "Rahul" kicked off from this film. Kuchh Kuchh Hota Hai was Karan Johar's first film which established a completely new genre in the industry. SRK played "Rahul" who was a super athletic college kid in college, the most romantic love of the town, and a hilarious father, who decided to march to his office without pants. Nonetheless, it's heartwarming to see, how he takes care of his little Anjali with his out-of-place jokes and emotional outburst on the telephone and eventually ends up with the first love of his life in the movie.
3. Anupam Kher in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
Anupam Kher in DDLJ is the dad, every kid aspires to have. Sweet, fun-loving, and the only one to encourage you to fail in your exams because that's the ancestral legacy. His character can send you rolling on the floor laughing your guts out and simultaneously, warm up your heart to simply see how this father honestly wants the love life of his son to work out.
4. Boman Irani in Housefull
From acknowledging the African baby as his grandchild to being unaware of the huge layout of plans because he was sleepwalking, Boman Irani made sure to tickle every laughing nerve of the audience. What made it entertaining was the fact, that he thought himself to be the most clever one in the room, even when the cat took the mouse from under his nose.
5. Mithun Chakraborty in Kick
When the situation goes downhill, it's always your father-in-crime who comes to your rescue. Mithun Chakraborty in his first shot of the film as a father, honestly, convinced the audience about his disciplined upbringing only to change the whole narrative in a flash. Mithun as "Vidvan Singh" was immensely proud of his son, he made sure he is on track but also applauded his kind-hearted son. Nevertheless, his unique invention of a bike-cycle still lives rent-free in our minds.
6. Amitabh Bachchan in Piku
Amitabh Bachchan as "Bashkor" in the movie rightly said, "Motion se hi emotion hota hai." You might find it hilarious but deep down you acknowledge the relevance it holds. The day your stomach is upset, everything turns out to be bad - be it meetings, office, food, or your favorite web show. Each and everything can irritate you or you just give up on everything and lie flat on the ground, staring at the ceiling.
7. Kamal Haasan in Chachi 420
You should not challenge the love of a father for his only child. Kamal Hassan in Chachi 420 dresses up as a woman, to be constantly closer to his kid when his wife decided to leave him and eventually takes their child too. He simultaneously manages his office along with being the nanny and makes the audience giggle with every ongoing scene.
