There are two kinds of movies, one that connects well with the masses and are termed as HIT and the other which doesnt gel with the mindset of the masses and thus termed FLOP. But, there are few handful of movies which stays on and lives on and on in ones memory. One of them is Andaz Apna Apna. Initially, there were rumors that spread that a sequel of this cult comedy is being plotted but with the looks of things to come, this hearsay just might turn true.
Released on 11th April, 1994 Andaz Apna Apna was supposed to be a colossal HIT, but shockingly and regrettably the movie bombed at the box office soon after its release. Call it a bad marketing strategy or an abysmal fortune. Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi starring superstars of Bollywood Aamir Khan and Salman Khan along with ravishing Raveena Tandon and karizmatic Karishma Kapoor this movie had success written all over it. But as fate would have it, this movie performed poorly at the box office. But saying that, that was then and since then Andaz Apna Apna has gained a strong cult following over the years.
Andaz Apna Apna was a cult comedy with some memorable characters in it. The story had a lot of fun mixed with a lot of confusion. The story goes like, Amar and Prem are two rivals who belonging to middle-class families with no scope of future advancement. Both individually, without the knowledge of the other decide to take matters into their hands and find ways to get rich quickly. Chaos and acrimony result when both find each other at loggerheads when both arrive to win the hand of the daughter of multi-millionaire Ram Gopal Bajaj amidst considerable upheavals when Shyam, the twin brother of Ram, decides to do away with Ram and assume his identity and thus take over the estate of the Bajaj family.
Actors Salman Khan and Aamir Khan are two of the biggest superstars of Bollywood. And while individually, they have the prowess to deliver blockbusters of the magnitude of Dabangg and 3 Idiots, just imagine the kind of explosion they can trigger if they come together one more time for the sequel of Andaz Apna Apna. Though, in todays time it is hard to digest the fact that two big time stars like Aamir Khan and Salman Khan co existing in harmony together in one film, but seeing the camaraderie these two shares off screen, it is more likely that Andaz Apna Apna 2 is not far away.
Today Andaz Apna Apna is considered one of the finest films and a benchmark for the future comic capers. Seemingly, negotiations are on between the two celebs and director Rajkumar Santoshi to make a sequel to that immensely loved film. The buzz in town is that Aamir and Raj Kumar Santoshi have even zeroed in on a script.
But the million dollar question is that would they be able to recreate that old magic? Contrary to the late 20s age (in the original), now both are in their mid 40s. Besides, it would be difficult to evoke the poetic surge of the original. But then Aamir, Salman and Santoshi are renowned for their expertise.
These two stars combined together can surely change the phase of Bollywood.
