Where did you watch this movie?

A street-toughened orphan by the name of Munna (Aamir Khan) is befriended by some kind folks, whose effervescent daughter Mili (Urmila Matondkar) soon grows to be his best buddy. Both gravitate toward the Mumbai movie industry. Mili finds occupation dancing in the background chorus of songs while Munna earns his livelihood selling movie tickets in the black market. Mili has ambitions of becoming an actress. Fortune favors her when she dances her way into a movie star's attentions. This actor, Raj Kamal (Jackie Shroff), arranges for her to be given a screen test for the heroine's role in his upcoming movie called Rangeela. Raj and Munna both fall in love with Mili, but Mili is too busy making the movie to notice. She starts spending a lot of time with Raj during the filming. Munna tries many times to tell Mili that he loves her, but he is unable to, or Raj gets in the way. Eventually, feeling inferior, Munna decides to leave Mili to Raj, who can give her a better life than he can. The matter is not resolved though, as Mili hears of this on her movie's opening night. She asks Raj to help her find Munna, which he does after realizing that Mili seems to love Munna and not him. How will this strange love-triangle play itself out in the end?
