6 Times Bollywood Movies Needed Animals to Save 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:

1. 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.

2. 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 and Salman’s characters.

3. 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. This generally useless bird had an entire song dedicated to it in this film.

4. 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!

5. Ramu from Haathi Mere Saathi

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.

6. Dobby from Maa

Jaya Prada‘s character was killed off in the beginning of the film, after which she returned to seek revenge. How, you ask? The task fell upon a dog, who could see ghosts and avenged the lead character.
