The epic Andaz Apna Apna turns 20 this year, guys! Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, AAA enjoys a cult status today and is probably the only reason I find it in my heart to forgive Santoshi for Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Phata Poster Nikla Hero. The film has probably dictated and influenced major areas of your life.

Like, how can you date someone who doesn’t get your Andaz Apna Apna references? Or how you wait for your friends to ask you about an interview you nailed just so that you can say “Unka ek ek sawal humare do do jawab, sawal ek, jawab do, sawal ek jawab do, sawal jawab, sawal jawab….chup lambi khamoshi.” Ah, I could go on.

So here I attempt to list out 9 things Andaz Apna Apna  gave us that makes it one of the best things to have happened to mankind.

1.The Most Epic Back Handed Compliment

Aap purush nahi hain… mahapurush hain! Mahapurush!

2. The Secret To Best Friendships

Do dost ek pyali mein chai piyenge.. Isse pyaar badhta hai

Chai, water, juice, beer, whiskey, rum… You see where I’m going with this, don’t you?

3. The Science Behind Indian Names

Woh humein teele pe mil gaya tha na, toh humne iska naam ‘Teeloo’ rakh diya!

Now there’s an explanation for all the Dabboos, Chintoos, Lolos, Bebos of the world! Notice extremely smart Kapoor khandan reference! Notice how one of the Kapoors is in the film!

4. The Coolest Halloween Costumes

Personally, I think enough has just not been said about the clothes in the film. The above picture clearly shows how the fashion in the film would make fun Halloween costumes. Raveena Tandon, who was Karishma in the film, however, wore the best clothes throughout. Pun not intended. Sexy dresses, fun hats, knee high boots… #WinMax

In fact, I think the epic bus conversation that happened between Aamir Khan and Salman Khan about what piece of clothing they got from where, should have happened between the girls.

5. The Rum Endorsement

Gham ka saathi rum!

Okay. I may be biased to this because Old Monk fills each void in my heart on a regular basis but truer words have never been spoken! This NEEDS to be Old Monk’s tagline and they should have it printed on every bottle. #DareToDream

6. The Shashi Tharoor Gem


The picture in question, you ask? Check it out here:

Right? RIGHT? Please recover from your laughter. The post isn’t over…

7. The Teja Vu

Teja main hoon, mark idhar hai!

I could go on about this epic quote. However, I’d rather share an epic joke with you:

Teja was once traveling with Mark Zuckerberg. Someone asked, “Who are you?”

He replied, “Teja main hoon, Mark idhar hai”.

8. The Tribute That Said What Everyone Was Thinking

I love The Viral Fever guys. Please check out their channel if you haven’t already. And their tribute for this masterpiece of a film is definitely one of the best I’ve seen.

9. The Most Apt Victory Dance

Dhakkii-tikki dhakki-tikki dhakki-tikki dhaaa!!

Enough said!
