Magical Duos

Here are some of my favourite on screen couples in no particular order. Maybe you will find a few of them who touched you or made you laugh or just bugged you.

Big Screen
Srividya and Kamal in Apoorva Ragam- great chemistry
Urvashi and Kamal in Michael Madan Kam Raj
Dharmendar and Sharmila in Chupke Chupke- they had me in splits
Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt in As Good as it gets
Shabana and Naseerudin in Masoom- so real
Surya and Laila in Pitamahan- endearing if a little over the top
Shalini and Madhavan in Alaipayuthey
Juhi and Shahrukh- In Yes Boss and Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman ( SRK is so predicatble now)
Madhavan and Meera Jasmine in that one song in Ayutha Yeruthu
Terence Hill and Bud Spencer- in all their movies, slapstick at its best
George Clooney & anyone- he is just so right

Small screen
Guru and the teacher in Nukkad- I really wanted them to work
Ramani vs Ramani- So sweet ( only the first series though)
Dharma's parents in Dharma and Greg - usually whacky sometimes irritating
Anything But Love - Jamie Lee curtis and the guy( do not know his name)
Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd in Moonlighting.
Raymond and his wife in Everybody loves Raymond
Tim and his mate ( with either of the 2- wife or Alan) in Tool time

Kamal and sreedevi made a great pair in many early films particularly varumaiyin niram sigappu,moonru moodichu, vaazhve mayam etc Kamal and jayaprada were great in salangai oli.
I used to like Amitabh and Rekha as a pair.
And rishi and dimple in sagar

hey are we looking at male-female pairs only? I like Joey and Chandler in Friends(my belief - the reason why the serial Joey didnt work out - hey no Chandler), Munna and Circuit (of Munnabhai fame), Jai and Veeru (Sholay - amazing movie even today - dear God - pls let there not be a re-make of this one), Will and Grace (from Will & Grace) SRK and Kajol, Aamir & Juhi (remember QSQT) Madhuri Dixit & Anil Kapoor (Tezaab, Ram Lakhan, Beta....) andof course Ray and Debra (Everybody loves raymond)

artnavy said...

theanalogkid said...

all good picks from indian movies..

my favorite is julie delpy and ethan hawke in "before sunrise" and "before sunset".
i cant think of any pair that can beat that chemistry.

tom cruise and nicole kidman in "eyes wide shut" also comes to mind.

Cloudy Musings said...

na na. May be gajini with that psycho guy, or whatever. But it was the wackiest thing i did. lol

artnavy said...

psycho guy was anniyan

Alan said...

I've always like Karisma Kapoor and Salman Khan in all of their screwball comedies.

Shahrukh with Rani or Preity seem to pair well.

Small screen: I liked Gregs parents in Dharma and Greg.

artnavy said...
