6 Times Bollywood Movies Needed Animals to Save the Day

When regular heroes cannot save the day, you need superheroes. These superheroes come in all species and forms. Some are humans turned superhumans, some are aliens or robots, and sometimes, a household pet saves the day. It is always a treat to watch animals on the big screen. While Hollywood has made franchises out of animal movies, Bollywood too is not short of films where an animal steals the limelight. They are an integral part of the movie and are burdened with responsibilities humans cannot seem to handle. Take a look at a few of these animals in Bollywood movies:

Pluto from Dil Dhadakne Do
When the makers of this Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh-starring film could not think of a better narrator for dysfunctional family drama, the responsibility was handed to the family dog. The story is seen from his perspective, making him the most important character of the film.

Tuffy from Hum Aapke Hai Kaun
Could this movie have worked without this wonder dog? When he was not playing umpire at important family cricket games, he was given the responsibility of being Cupid for Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan‘s characters. Seriously, he’s just a dog!

Handsome, the kabootar from Maine Pyaar Kiya
Salman Khan seems to have a special bond with animals. He is always delivering letters through them to his lady love with the help of a pigeon. This generally useless bird became so important in the film, it had an entire song dedicated to it.

Tumbo from Vishwatma
Clearly, humans are incapable of communication anymore! Not only are pigeons and dogs used to deliver messages, this movie handed over that task to a monkey. The monkey was made to deliver a mouth organ to Naseeruddin Shah’s character, which would send him an important message.

Ramu from Haathi Mere Saathi
Whether it is for food, religion, or pleasure, animals have been sacrificed for humans since the Stone Age. In this film, an elephant sacrifices his life so his beloved human can mend ties with his wife. He is also made to do many funny antics to keep the movie interesting and be the bread-earner.

Dobby from Maa
Bollywood’s twists and turns reached a new level with this Jaya Prada-starrer. Her character was killed off in the beginning but she returned to seek revenge. How, you ask? The task fell upon a dog, who could see ghosts and avenged the lead character.
