Trivia

When Aamir Khan and 'Salman Khan' were approached to sign the contract for the movie each of them wanted more screen time than the other, but finally settled on being onscreen for the same amout of time. See more »

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 »

Most Comic movie in Recent times
16 May 2004 | by sushant_elSee all my reviews

Andaaz Apna Apna is the most comic movie of the decade.You can't stop laughing during the movie.Right from the first scene to the last, your giggles don't stop.Amir Khan is brilliant.His comic timing is superb.His dialogue delivery, gestures,uninhibited style all compel you to laugh like hell.Salman Khan is good.Paresh Rawal is his usual best.The dialogues by Rajkumar Santoshi are good(Amir Khan mouthing Purush-Mahapurush).The music reminds you of good old times.The scenes where both the characters Amar Prem try to outwit each other,they try to woo Raveena and the fighting scenes in the Climax are really funny.It is very difficult to decide which is the most comic scene.All of them are on top of other.Definitely one of the best feathers in RajKumar Santoshi's Cap. I think this movie ranks no.1 in Comedy genre of Bollywood(at least in 1990s when there were very few comedy movies).
