Comedy Film
COMEDY is a genre of film in which the main emphasis is on humor . These films are designed to make the audience laugh through amusement and most often work by exaggerating characteristics for humorous effect. Films in this style traditionally have a happy ending (black comedy being an exception). One of the oldest genres in film, some of the very first silent movies were comedies, as slapstick comedy often relies on visual depictions, without requiring sound. When sound films became more prevalent during the 1920s, comedy films took another swing, as laughter could result from burlesque situations but also dialogue. Comedy, compared with other film genres , puts much more focus on individual stars, with many former stand-up comics transitioning to the film industry due to their popularity

Drama Film
When used to define a specific genre or type of film or television programme , DRAMA is usually qualified with additional terms that specify its particular subgenre, such as "political drama ," "courtroom drama ," "historical drama ," "domestic drama ," or "comedy-drama ." These terms tend to indicate a particular setting or subject-matter, or else they qualify the otherwise serious tone of a drama with elements that encourage a broader range of moods . All forms of cinema or television that involve fictional stories are forms of drama in the broader sense if their storytelling is achieved by means of actors who represent (mimesis ) characters . In this broader sense, drama is a mode distinct from novels , short stories , and narrative poetry or songs . In the modern era before the birth of cinema or television, "drama" came to be used within the theatre as a generic term to describe a type of play that was neither a comedy nor a tragedy
