Did you know that millennials favourite comedy film Andaz Apna Apna flopped at the box office? Shocking! Right? Well flop or hit, this film holds a special place. Today it is celebrating its silver jubilee. Everything about this film is ICONIC.
Aamir Khan & Salman Khan who essayed the roles of hysterical duo of Amar & Prem is relatable to all the frenemies. The story of Raveena and Karishma played by Raveena Tondon & Karishma Kapoor her selves is actually confusing and adorable.
The two girls coming to India in order to find a groom for Raveena, who is a wealthy businessman’s daughter, Karishma who plays her secretary helps her in finding the perfect match.
Then, comes in Amar & Prem, the over ambitious lads who wants to get married to the rich girl but Prem falls in love with the secretary. Raveena’s bodyguards are evil, Robert and Bhalla who are on the mission to stop the marriage by the orders of their boss, Teja played by Paresh Rawala.
Paresh Rawal has a double role, he is Raveena’s father and also the bad guy Teja. The most epic character is of Crime Master Gogo who has hilarious dialogues and great screen presence.
Andaz Apna Apna is the best 90’s comedy movie, dialogues like “Crime Master Gogo naam hai mera, aaya hoon to kuch le kar jaunga”, “Ye Teja Teja kya hai”, “Ap purush hi nahi, Mahaparush hain”, and many more will get a person grasping for air. All the characters are perfectly blended and justified their roles.
Teenagers are watching this film now and are asking why don’t they make films like this anymore which is quite legit because even after 25 years, this movie hasn’t lost its charm.
You watch it, and you’ll laugh. Without any vulgar jokes, double meaning talks, item numbers, Andaz Apna Apna is still relevant and cult’s favourite comedy film. Filmi Files is the best place to look for online movie reviews.
