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 »

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.
