Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman is a 1992 Bollywood comedy movie directed by Aziz Mirza. This movie was released on 25th birthday of Juhi Chawla. Five years later, the film was dubbed for release in Japan. It’s a pretty good movie in my opinion. I found a very good quality movie:
The story line draws its inspiration from A Place in the Sun. Raj Mathur is a young engineering graduate from Darjeeling who comes to Bombay with only one ambition – to become a big engineer. In Bombay, he arrives in a lower middle-class locality in search of a distant relative, only to discover he has left years before. He spends the night at a temple, where he meets a philosophical street side performer Jai, 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, finds him a job as a trainee with the construction company where she works as a secretary to Chabbria. They eventually fall in love with each other.
As he becomes successful he gets 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 has fallen in love with Raju but when she finds out that he loves Renu she is heartbroken.
In the meantime Raju’s enemies are conspiring against him and they 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. Most people were asking Jai when Raju would come back. Jai told them when he turns his head around and looks at Renu he will have no choice but to come back. Just a second ago Jai said “Palat” (meaning turn) then Raju turns and looks at Renu. He and Renu finally get reunited again.
