Andaz Apna Apna

One of the most poular movies in Hindi Cinema has been Andaz Apna Apna. But after watching Dumb And Dumber, I realised that it might have a lot of scenes ripped off from D&D. Like the one in which after Aamir Khan adds some stuff to Salman's food, and then he has to keep visiting the restroom. D&D has the exact same scene.

But a little bit of googling tells me that D&D released on 16th Dec 1994, whereas AAA also released in 1994 (dont know the exact dates) but also that it took five years to make the film, because Aamir and salman didnt get along too well. This probably implies that D&D got the inspiration for the scene from AAA! If they indeed did, I don't know how that was possible because of the short time span between the two releases.

I thought Deewana Mastana[if I recollect correctly] tried to rip-off som stuff off Dumb and dumber. I never thuoght of Andaz apna apna that way. Though it would be interesting if a Bollywood movie "inspires" a Holly movie. :-)

Baseless allegation. Andaaz apna apna was released before Dumb and Dumber.

I had exactly the same deja vu (if you will), after watching the first Dumb and Dumber. The movies were released only a month apart from each other.

Wrong!!! Andaz Apna Apna was released 8 months (April 1994) before DUmb and Dumber (December 2014).
