'Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman' is an upbeat commercial entertainer that draws its inspiration from the English movie, 'A Place in the Sun'. Raj Mathur (Shahrukh Khan) is a young engineering graduate from Darjeeling, who comes to Bombay with only one ambition, to become a renowned and successful engineer. He arrives at a lower middle-class locality of Bombay, in search of a distant relative, only to discover he has left the city years ago. Discouraged and feeling hopeless, he spends the night at a temple, where he meets a philosophical street performer Jai (Nana Patekar), who becomes a close friend and gives him a place to stay. With no connections and no experience, he finds it hard to get a job in the city, until a beautiful girl Renu (Juhi Chawla), finds him a job as a trainee, with the construction company where she works as a secretary to Chabbria (Navin Nischol). They eventually fall in love with each other. Soon, his hard work, perseverance and talents are recognised, and as he becomes successful, he gains the attention of Chhabria's daughter, Sapna (Amrita Singh). They spend more and more time together, and he soon gets caught up in the rich and glamorous life style. Sapna soon expresses her love for Raju, but when she finds out that he loves Renu, she is heartbroken. In the meantime, Raju's enemies conspire against him, and cunningly collapse a bridge which was under Raju's supervision. He gets the blame and soon realises that the glamorous world of the rich, is not what he wants. In the end, Raju decides to leave the city for peaceful pastures elsewhere. However, Raju has also gained several close connections with many people that are important to him, including his undying love for Renu. He and Renu finally get reunited again.
