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 »

The best Hindi comedy ever made!
19 February 2001 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

There have been very few great comedy films in the history of Hindi Cinema. Andaz Apna Apna happens to be one of them. The film is based on a very simple story of two poor young men (Aamir and Salman) who dream of becoming rich by marrying a millionaire's daughter (Raveena). Aamir and Salman Khan try their best to outwit each other and woo Raveena. The plot thickens when Paresh Rawal & Co. plan to take over all the wealth. The movie is well paced and very funny. Rarely does one come across a Hindi comedy which is both funny and intelligent. This is one of the few films with Aamir and Salman together (probably the only film!). Unfortunately it did not succeed at the box-office, and we might never see a film of this calibre again. Aamir Khan is brilliant in the film and has proved his versatility as an actor in this film. Salman Khan gives a very good performance as a dim-wit. Raveena plays a convincing role as a confused rich girl, and Karishma who is Raveena's assistant/friend is also funny. Paresh Rawal, Junior Ajith, Shakti Kapoor, Deven Verma, Jagdeep and Tiku Talsania just add to the flavour of the film! All in all, the best Hindi comedy ever made and I wish they make more quality films like this one. You will want to watch this film time and again.

P.S - For those of you who have watched this film, I also suggest Gol Maal, Chupke Chupke, Chhoti Si Baat, Naram Garam, Hera Pheri (old and new), etc.
