Did You Know?


In the film credits, Shakti Kapoor's name has the 'S' striked out and is spelt with a 'T,' thus making it 'Thakti'. This is because Shakti's character Crime Master Gogo cannot say 'S'. He replaces 'S' with 'T.' Thus instead of saying 'Namaste' his character says 'Namate.' Further, his character Crime Master Gogo is said to be the nephew of the great Indian villain Mogambo essayed by the late Amrish Puri in the film Mr. India. Aamir Khan and Rishi Kapoor discussed the production of Andaz Apna Apna in a dialogue in the film Damini which released in 1993. Actor Jagdeep who plays the character Bankeylal Bhopali in the film has earlier played the role of Bhopali in films like Soorma Bhopali and Sholay. See more »

Crazy Credits

Names of actors are spelt with two extra letters-like, Aamir Khhhan and Salllman Khan. This is done because the title of the film is an alliteration of 'A' thrice- AAA (Andaz Apna Apna). Hence, two extra letters in names to make it three. See more »

User Reviews

Best Indian comedy of the Khan era!
12 January 2001 | by iqbal_maskatiyaSee all my reviews

It's simply ridiculous how underrated this movie is. It is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. It never lags, it never slows down, it is a movie that has a wonderful flow to the plot. That along with the brilliant writing makes this an awesome movie. Aamir and Salman are outrageous, even Raveena and Karishma are funny in this movie. Paresh Rawal and Shakti deliver some great bad guy comedy, but Viju Khote and the Ajit-wannabe are the best with their dumbfounded bad-guy intentions. If you want to laugh, and enjoy a movie, watch this movie, do it with family or friends, you will not regret it. Most indian movies tire me out by the end, cause they are 3 hours long. This movie is just as long, but I wish there was more when it ends, cause it's an amazing flick.
