A feel good, warm movie
24 May 2001 | by onkardeepSee all my reviews

I watched this movie when I didnt know who Shah Rukh was (and didnt have even remotest idea that he was going to rule the Bollywood screen soon). Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman is about a young engineer who comes to Bombay to realize his dreams of making it big. How he lands among a group of good guys living in a 'chawl' and share his happiness and sorrow with them is beautifully picturised. Nana Patekar steals the show whenever he appears on screen. One scene that really moved me comes near the end of the movie, when Shah Rukh is totally drunk (symbolically, drowned in the magic of lucre!!)and shouting at the ever-cute Juhi, and Nana carries him away from the scene. Music is good. A very good movie and very well made.

Highly Recommended....
