You are certainly wrong if you think the best performances always come from big actors. There are many movies in Bollywood where animals play an important role in movies. Animals have been part of all types of films.
For instance, they help couples to reunite, and they do comedy, and they even fight villains in some films.
Here we created a list of Bollywood movies where animals are more than just a pet. It won’t be bad if we call them unsung heroes.
1. Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na
In the whole song of Kabhi Kabhi Aditi, Genelia was pissed off about something and Imran was trying to please her.
Later, we found out the entire song revolved around a cat. Furthermore, Genelia and Imran used to call each other Rats and Meow.
2. Maine Pyar Kiya
The pigeon in the movie fights Monish Behl at the end. The pigeon has a very good reason to do that as Monish tried to kill him before. The pigeon has played an important role in the movie. And filmmakers have dedicated a whole song addressing the pigeon.
It was the scene where Salman Khan and Bhagyashree try to convince pigeons to convey their messages of love.
3. Dil Dhadakne Do
Dil Dhadakne Do was a multi starrer film. Well… the Mehra family was incomplete if it lacks Pluto Mehra. Pluto Mehra was the sanest member of the family.
The Bullmastiff managed to steal the puppy love from the cast. Little you know that Aamir Khan did dubbing for the dog.
Another dog who can be a tough competition to Tuffy is the dog from Akshay starrer Entertainment. A huge Golden Retriever is the hero of the film, and Akshay has to fight him to acquire his father’s property.
As per the script, the rich father had pledged all his wealth to the dog named entertainment.
5. Hathi Mere Sathi
Hathi Mere Sathi is a masterpiece movie. In the movie, you can see an elephant’s attachment to the boy that it doesn’t only save him, but sheds his tears and also sacrifices its life to fix the relationship of his master and his wife.
6. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
Tuffy was the reason that film got a happy ending. He was the umpire of the family cricket matches.
The iconic Tuffy from Hum Aapke Hain Kaun received the blessings from Lord Krishna in the film. He might be the reason that dogs are considered the best pet.
7. Life Of Pi
The movie was based on the survival of the boy named Pi. It focuses on the relationship between the boy and the tiger named Richard Parker when they both struck on a boat in the ocean.
The Fantasy drama ‘Life of Pi’ has a CGI tiger that looks very realistic. The animal made the entire sea journey look very real and thrilling.
Bollywood loves to make movies on Iccha-dhari Naagins. Many movies show the revenge stories of shape-shifting snakes, and many actors have danced on the tunes.
These movies have shown snakes in their most beautiful and gorgeous ways. So literally, It’s FUN!!!
The eagle named Allah Rakha has big screen time in the blockbuster movie along with Amitabh Bachchan. Allah Rakha even fought with the villain in the movie.
He was also in the poster of the movie. And not to talk about the famous dialogue of Amitabh Bachchan, “Bachpan se hai sar par Allah ka haath, aur Allah Rakha hai mere saath…”
How many famous character names you remember from Sholay. I bet you will never forget the Dhanno. Dhanno was the ghodi who has an important role at the end.
As per the dialogue, “Chal Dhanno aaj teri Basanti ki izzat ka sawal hai…” Dhanno has something meaningful to do.
11. Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon
At last, we have a movie with an overactive dog and CGI-generated parrot. These two pets have certainly stolen the limelight from Kareena and Hrithik.
12. Khoon Bhari Maang
Khoon Bhari Maang introduced Rekha in a never seen before avatar. When everyone failed to recognize her when she got a new face, only her pets recognized her.
The dog and horse gave some emotional scenes that were needed in the film.
