Sony MAX2 Celebrates 27 years of cult comedy ' Andaz Apna Apna '

The year was 1994 and Andaz Apna Apna had released to a massive audience response owing to its impeccable humour, incredible casting and strong plotline. 27 years later, the legacy and the laughter continue. Not too many films have managed to amuse generations of audiences and stay relevant as did Andaz Apna Apna so effortlessly.  From Salman- Aamir Khan’s camaraderie to Paresh Rawal’s perfect comic timing to the inimitable charm of Shakti Kapoor, everything about the film strikes a laughter. Being the fourth highest rated film of all times whilst being a trendsetter in the genre of slapstick comedy, Andaz Apna Apna deserves a watch even today.

 As the film turns 27, here are a few reasons why you must rewatch this epic of a comedy -

 Most iconic villains of Bollywood

In Bollywood, heroes steal the show. However, in Andaz Apna Apna, not only the heroes but the villains have made history as well. Shakti Kapoor as Crime Master Gogo was a refreshingly lighthearted contrast to Hindi cinema’s blood-angry villains who didn’t only make audiences across India laugh harder every time they watched the film but also managed to rank this character in the list of most loved villains ever. At par with him was Paresh Rawal as Teja who added the right amount of excitement and humour to the story with his brilliantly essayed double role.

 The ever so entertaining camaraderie between Amar-Prem

Bromance has never looked this adorable on screen as Amar and Prem made it happen in this film. From ‘Do dost ek hi pyali me chai piyenge to Chit Main Jeeta, Pat tu hara’ Amar-Prem’s equation is forever etched in our hearts as one of the most iconic friendships in the history of Bollywood. Its amusing to see how Prem’s innocence was marvelously paired with Amar’s street-smart antics. Their perfect comic timings, priceless expressions and hilarious love-hate relationship will still force one to shed tears of happiness.

 Unique and quirky storyline with rib-tickling scenes

The fourth highest rated Hindi film on IMDb, Andaz Apna Apna was much ahead of its time. Director Rajkumar Santoshi managed to deliver a comedic masterpiece which had just the right amount of parody of Bollywood cliches paired with fast paced comic elements that is sure to tickle your funny bone long after the credits have rolled.

 Best. Dialogues. Ever. Period!

It is said that words have the power to turn the world upside down, but in this case Andaz Apna Apna’s well-timed witty dialogues will quite literally make one roll on the floor laughing. “Main Hun Crime Master Gogo, Aakhein Nikalke Gotiyan Khelunga” “Suno Suno Duniya Ke Logo - Sabse Bada Hai Mister Gogo” “Shabash Mere Cheetay”, “Do dost ek hi pyali mein chai peeyenge, isse dosti badhti hai” are few of such dialogues that has stayed in our hearts and minds and will continue to do so forever. 

 Gather your tribe and delve into the world of laughter, friendship and love with Andaz Apna Apna on 3rd December at 7 PM only on Sony MAX2
