'Raja Hindustani' is the quintessential tale of the problems that arise when a rich girl marries a poor boy. Mr. Sehgal (Suresh Oberoi), an exceptionally wealthy businessman, lives with his daughter, Aarti (Karisma Kapoor), and his second-wife Shalini (Archana Puran Singh) in a palatial home. Aarti wishes to go for a vacation at a small hill station named Palankhet where her parents had met for the first time. Once there, she meets a poor orphan, Raja Hindustani (Aamir Khan), who becomes her guide and taxi driver. Almost instantaneously sparks fly, they fall head over heels in love with each other, and get married without Mr. Sehgal's blessings. When Mr. Sehgal comes to know of this hasty wedding, he is initially furious, but eventually forgives his daughter, and invites both newlyweds to his palatial home. However, what he is completely unaware of is that his scheming wife, her brother, Swaraj (Pramod Moutho), and her nephew Jai (Mohnish Behl) have plans to create conflict and discord between the young couple with the ultimate goal of destroying the family and snatching away their wealth. Will fate and circumstance conspire to separate the young couple?

Trivia:
This movie was very successful and is one of the biggest hits of the 1990s. Its soundtrack is hailed as one of the best selling Bollywood albums of all-time.

Aamir Khan won the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for the first time after being nominated for eight consecutive years.

Juhi Chawla was initially offered the lead role but she declined.

Aamir and Karishma's lip-lock scene added controversy and provided hype for the movie. It is still considered one of the longest kisses in Hindi Cinema.

This movie was inspired by Suraj Prakash's Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965).

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was offered the lead role and she was tempted to take it, but she was not looking for a career in acting and was busy with her studies.
