Goofs

In the climax when Aamir tells Crime master Gogo more about his childhood expression, Gogo in a long shot holding a gun on his right hand happily shouts to everyone about what others were thinking about him. A close-up is followed afterwards and it is visibly clear that Gogo is holding the same gun on his left hand without revealing why and how. See more »

Crazy Credits

Shakti Kapoor's name is written as Thakti Kapoor with letter S from his first name striked out. This is done because his character Crime Master Gogo speaks S as T in all his dialogues. For example, "Kya Namatey Namatey?" for "Kya Namastey Namastey?"(What Hello Hello?) See more »

funniest movie of the century
12 October 1998 | by (Rochester, US) – See all my reviews

There are some movies that are loved by almost everyone who you come across and yet happen to be box-office failures. Andaz Apna Apna, an intelligent and hilarious comedy falls in that catogory. For once, an Indian director has kept in mind the sensibilities of the audience, and not churned out a Kader Khan type stereo-typical hoax. The movie is about two guys who dream of riches, and try to accomplish that by wooing a millionaire's daughter. A humorous drama unfolds while a lot of complexities surface in the story. The complexities add to the sheer comedy of the entire plot. Aamir Khan plays the a street-smart guy, while Salman Khan gives an unexpectedly good performance as the dumb guy. The villian played by Paresh Rawal,and his henchmen, Junior Ajit and "Kaliaa" make you laugh in your sleep. Although the movie borrows from a lot of other movies, despite shoddy camerawork, and despite being "loud" at times, it remains one of the scarce "funny" movies Bombay has come up with after movies like Padosan, Golmal and other Amol Plaekar movies. It is sad that it didn't do well at the box-office, for that means producers turn back to formulas and creativity is abandoned.
