I am totally surprised to see a good movie coming out from a brainless filmmaker David dhawan.

Andaz is a really good movie. Anil Kapoor plays a professor at a college and he is often picked up on by his students. One of his students Jaya (played nicely by Karisma Kapoor) has a secret crush on him. However, Anil is happily married to a illiterate and orphaned village belle Saraswati (Juhi Chawla). The film is nit-picked with sub-plots like terrorists attacking the college and how the hero comes to the rescue.

The lead actors Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla and Karisma Kapoor turn in decent performances. Actually, it's the ladies who take the cake from the hero here. Karisma is likable as the good hearted, spectacled silent admirer of the hero. Juhi is funny as the "moohfat" housewife who doesn't know how to cook.

The songs are nice. The song "Maal Gadi Ko Dakka Laga" has some suggestive lyrics but the vulgarity is not overdone here. I'd say it's much better than the pelvic thrusts done by Govinda in the song "Sarkailo Katiya Jara Laga" from Raja Babu.

Andaz is a brilliant time-pass flick. I give it 8/10.
