Teja: How could I? *cries* Police was looking for me after I murdered Munim Harishankar... on the other hand, I had taken a loan from Mogambo so his nephew Gogo was looking for me as well... You think I don't want to go to London? you think I don't have desires to see what London looks like?

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 »

Most Comic movie in Recent times
16 May 2004 | by (India) – See 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).
