The title, Andaz Apna Apna and the result is laughs, & a lot of them. Released in 1994, Andaz Apna Apna did not fare too well at the box office probably because of its immediate release on video. However, the film definitely delivers the goods & surely ranks among one of the best comedy films in the 90’s & in the annals of Hindi cinema. It is arguably one of the best comedic films ever made in Bollywood history.

The simple story deals with the life of two men, Amar (Aamir Khan) and Prem (Salman Khan). Their intention is khổng lồ get rich by taking all the short cuts in the book. Amar spends his time roaming in the neighborhood or quarreling with his father while Prem aspires lớn be an actor (he’s too dumb to lớn be one though). Amar is the son of an honest barber, Murli Manohar (Deven Varma) and Prem is the son of Bakelal Bhopali (Jagdeep), a hardworking tailor in Bhopal. Both Amar và Prem sell their father’s siêu thị and house respectively, & zero in on a hill station where a beautiful heiress Raveena (Raveena Tandon) has come from London accompanied by her friend cum secretary Karishma (Karisma Kapoor) with the intention of getting married lớn a virtuous Indian. The lucky man khổng lồ wed Raveena will inherit her father Ram Gopal Bajaj’s (Paresh Rawal) entire wealth. Amar & Prem see themselves get rich quick & both woo Reveena, one by being a mentally disturbed individual & the other being a doctor, while each tries to lớn outdo the other. Enter Teja (Paresh Rawal in a double role) whose sole ambition in life has been to lớn grab his twin brother Ram Gopal Bajaj’s millions. So Teja plants Balla (Shehzad) & Robert (Viju Khote) in Raveena’s house khổng lồ help him fulfil his ambition. As the story progresses, it turns out lớn be a mad chase for Ram Gopal Bajaj’s wealth, full of humour, romance, thrills và chills.

Raj Kumar Santoshi deserves a pat on his back for attempting an all out comedy film và for coming out of it with flying colours. The way the story was conceived and developed is applauseworthy. It’s not a complex story by any means but yet it manages khổng lồ hold one’s attention from the beginning till the end. Santoshi throws in several humouristic situations in order to keep the viewer entertained. The use of action-based comedy rather than words-based enhances the beauty of the film. The film is bound to lớn have Indian and non-Indian audiences laughing. Santoshi is at his best in the directing department. His handling of each scene with great care again deserves full mark. Some of them are real standouts and you feel that comedy doesn’t get better than this. He is one intelligent director, as he really knows what he wants & constantly keeping in mind that the aim is khổng lồ make the audience laugh. In other words, he tries lớn be the public himself & that’s proves khổng lồ be a strong factor of his success. He keeps his mind focused on the actual plot without going overboard and changing routes as opposed khổng lồ E.Niwas inLove Ke Liye Kucch Bhi Karega. His screenplay is very well executed. It is obviously difficult khổng lồ write a good screenplay as far as a comedy film is concerned. However, he makes this task looks child’s play as he brings the best out of some scenes. It can be easily noted that Santoshi’s films all boast of excellent screenplays except for Barsaat, which was poorly written.

He also excels in the dialogue department. He, along with Dilip Shukla, does a tremendous job with the use of quality expressions (e.g. Circus ka retired Bandar). Strangely enough, they also put in some real life facts (e.g. Aamir saying Jo Jeeta Woh Sikandar) or Aamir reminding Salman that his dad has written Sholay. The film also introduces something never witnessed by cinema before: shadow fighting. The idea was good but the execution by Tinu Verma wasn’t exactly superb.

Editing by V.N Mayekar is good. The film moves at even pace, not too fast, not too slow and for once there isn’t any scene that needs to lớn be cut. The film doesn’t focus too much on production values, which happen to be very poor. Sets are nice, not spectacular. Cinematography by Ishwar Bidri is ok. There are some nice shots of Ooty but they don’t really contribute lớn the development of the story.

Costumes aren’t very appealing. Music by Tushar Bhatia (?) is a let down- they serve khổng lồ no purpose in the movie. The numbers, which stand out, are “ vì Mastane” & “ Elo Elo Ji Sanam” while the other tracks are forgettable. Lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri are well done. Choreography by Saroj Khan is just passable.

Aamir Khan is simply splendid as Amar. He gives a straight from the heart performance & shows his credibility in comic roles. He has a terrific screen presence và delivers his lines effortlessly. It’s sad that he wasn’t awarded best comedian for this role, as he really deserves it. If a Govinda can win for a mediocre Haseena Maan Jayegi, why can’t Aamir khan? It would be unfair lớn say that Aamir Khan completely overshadows Salman Khan. Although Aamir is better, Salman does manage lớn nick in and keep up with him. He was trying a comic role for the first time (if I’m not wrong) & he’s simply fabulous. There are some scenes where he shows his excellence as a comedian. He shares terrific chemistry with Aamir và I wonder why they haven’t done any more movies together. The actresses are somewhat neglected lớn the sidelines but they bởi play an essential role in the film. Karisma is good in a small role while Raveena tries hard to lớn impress. However, I found the latter a bit raw and she has khổng lồ work on her voice modulation-her dialogue delivery isn’t all that. Shezad Khan (Ajit’s son) is simply wonderful. His job in the film was to imitate his father and he succeeds well. His dialogue delivery is up par khổng lồ his father. Viju Khote as Robert gets two thumbs up. I found him really funny và a natural comedian too. Shakti Kapoor as Crime Master Gogo is very good. For once, we have a villain who has some funny styles too. Tiku Talsania in a small role is ok. The stealer of the show got lớn be none other than Paresh Rawal. If you think that he was good in Hera Pheri, think over again. He excels as both Teja and Ram Gopal Bajaj. It’s as if you’re watching not one but two different persons. The whole cast scores a perfect 10.

There are still some small flaws in the movie. The motive of Raveena’s arrival in Indian was lớn look for a guy to marry but she hardly does so after Aamir has entered her house. She seems khổng lồ concentrate more on Aamir more than anything else. The idea lớn kill Raveena in order to make her father come khổng lồ India is somewhat far fetched. By showing all the wealth that the guy who marries her will inherit, it’s clear that she will get a person whose eye will only be on her property. The script leaves little place for emotions & the characters are those you can’t identify yourself with. Another fault lies in the character sketching of our heroes- they look too much lượt thích zeroes than heroes. The kích hoạt scenes at the end of the movie were not needed.

Andaz Apna Apna is a superb entertainer. For a comedy film, it could not have been better. Watch it with your family and you’ll love it lớn bits. The performances, direction, dialogues are all first class. It’s not a masterpiece but is not far from one.
