'Andaz Apna Apna' is a refreshingly funny and satirical take on modern materialistic society, blended together with fantastic music and wonderful acting.
Murli Manohar is a barber in a small town in India. He would like his son, Amar, to take over his business. But Amar is a slacker and a day-dreamer, who dreams of making it big in Bollywood movies and getting rich quick.
When Amar finds out that a rich heiress, Raveena, is looking for a groom to marry, he decides to go and try his luck. On the way there, he meets with another slacker by the name of Prem, who is the son of a tailor named Bankeylal Bhopali. Prem is also on his way to meet Raveena and attempt to convince her to marry him.
When both find out that they are after the same woman, they decide to outdo each other to win over Raveena's affections. Unsure of whom she is going to marry and wishing to find true love without the temptation of her wealth, Raveena asks her secretary, Karisma, to pose has herself, while she assumes her name.
Who will win the heart of the heiress? Will the advent of true love inspire the con-men to mend their ways and fulfill their true potential as human beings?
