Midweek blues hit us all. Salman Khan and Aamir Khan’s Andaz Apna Apna is the perfect watch to cure them. The cult classic was a flop in its time but boy did it become a hilarious hit in its later years. Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, the film was centered around two young broke men who aim to marry ‘Raveena from London’, a rich heiress. The film was slapstick, sly satire and filled with inside jokes which make it for hilarious watching.
Aamir Khan and Salman Khan in 'Andaz Apna Apna'
Here are some of our favorite dialogues from Andaz Apna Apna that crack us up every time!
1. ‘Haila! Ooi Maa!’
‘Haila’ is the catchphrase for Amar (Aamir Khan) and ‘Ooi Maa’ is the catchphrase for Salman Khan’s character, Prem.
2. ‘Do mastaanay chalay zindagi bananay!’
This hit song starts with ‘bom bom, BOM BOM!’ We know. It sounds ridiculous. But there it is.
3. ‘Bandar ke sar pe tarbooz!’
Amar Prem are both throwing big lies at each other when they meet for the first time.

The song from Aamir Khan’s hit film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak plays when Aamir is cutting the ribbon for entering a brand new jail.
5. ‘Very smart!’
A satirical, comical take on the villain’s henchman, ‘Rabert’, the catchphrase becomes somewhat of a recurring joke on how useless the henchmen really are.
6. ‘Dr Prem Khurana, is dhanday main bohat purana!’
Salman Khan pretends to be a doctor who comes to woo Raveena (Raveena Tandon) from London. Could the fact that Rajkumar Santoshi made Raveena Bajaj come from London a deliberate play on Raveena’s surname? Aah, the devil is in the details, truly.
