Trivia

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 »

Goofs

In the scene where Anand Akela shows Prem his token for the interview, Prem places it on the table. All three characters are shown to move away at the end of the scene, but Anand doesn't pick his token back. He reveals much later that he has given up hope of marriage to Raveena, but its only after their attempt to foil the plans of other hopefuls. 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 »

This comedy has a script !!!
6 February 2005 | by viveck_thakurSee all my reviews

Its a spoof, its an intelligent comedy, it has some a pathetic action and choreography (and mind it, it is intentional), good hummable songs, good performances by the entire cast, brilliant by Amir, Salman and Paresh and over all an script which is so rare in Indian cinema that too in comedy (watch David Dhawan, Harmesh Malhotra etc). Story is of two wastrels whose only aim is to get rich and famous by any which ways. They come across one such way when they find out that a rich NRI is coming India to get married. Rest of the story is about oneupmanship and how these wastrels try to out wit each other. Entire cast is perfectly cast right from Deven Verma till Viju Khote. Songs are rightly placed and are funny. Surprise package is Salman who acts with perfect timing and this particular act gave him his style of comedy.

All an all a fum film which you should not ignore if you like and watch Indian Cinema.
