Bollywood movies in which pets played a pivotal role
‘Chal Dhanno aaj teri Basanti ki izzat ka sawaal hai’, Hema Malini mouthed this dialogue and then the way Dhanno ran, suffice to say, it was amazing. Dhanno, the horse, is surely one of the most memorable characters from ‘Sholay’.
Allah Rakha ('Coolie')
When a person has a pet, we think of a dog, a cat, or even a pigeon or parrot, but Amitabh Bachchan’s pet in ‘Coolie’ was something that we didn’t expect. Well, Big B’s pet in the movie was an eagle. And yes, do you guys remember in the starting of the track ‘Accident Hogaya’ Big B shouts Allah Rakha, and that was actually the highlight of the song.
Moti (‘Teri Meherbaniyan’)
While filmmakers were using animals as pets in the movie, KC Bokadia did something totally different. He used a dog as the lead character in his production venture ‘Teri Meherbaniyan’. The movie starred Jackie Shroff and Poonam Dhillon, but it was Moti (dog's name in the movie) who was the lead and stole the show.
Handsome (pigeon in ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’)
‘Kabootar ja ja ja, kabootar ja ja ja, kabootar ja ja ja, kabootar ja ja ja, pehle pyaar ki pehli chitthi saajan ko de aa’. When Prem and Suman were far away from each other, it was Handsome (pigeon) who played the cupid between the two and took love letters for each other. It is very rare that a full song is just about the pet in the film.
Tuffy (‘Hum Aapke Hai Koun’)
Tuffy was one of the most important characters in ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!’. In fact, he was the one who got Prem (Salman) and Nisha (Madhuri) together in the end. From being sad, to dancing, Tuffy did everything perfectly in the movie.
Can you imagine a film titled on the name of the pet in the movie? Well, Sajid-Farhad’s ‘Entertainment’ was all about the dog Entertainment who was the actual lead in this Akshay Kumar-starrer.
Pluto Mehra (‘Dil Dhadakne Do’)
Zoya Akhtar did something in her film ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ which we don't think any filmmaker ever imagined of doing. Well, she made a dog the narrator of the film. Mehra’s pet in the film was a dog and it was also given the surname. He was Pluto Mehra. The whole film was narrated by Pluto, the voice of whom was Aamir Khan. That’s so amazing, right?
