-plot or body:

Farhan Qureshi (R. Madhavan), Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi) and Ranchhoddas "Rancho" Shamaldas Chhanchad (Aamir Khan) are three engineering students who share a room in the residence of Imperial College of Engineering (ICE). Farhan is studying engineering to pursue his father's wishes over his own wish — to become a wildlife photographer. Raju is studying to get his family out of poverty. On the other hand, Rancho studies for his simple passion in machines. Rancho believes that one should follow excellence, not success, as success will take care of itself if excellence is followed. However, this different approach is sneered upon by the president of the college, Professor Viru "Virus" Sahastrabuddhe (Boman Irani). Virus's favorite student, Chatur "Silencer" Ramalingam (Omi Vaidya), believes in mindless memorizing over understanding in order to reach his goals of corporate status. Raju, who is initially annoyed by Rancho's methods, moves in with Chatur, where he fares worse. In order to save Raju and provide him with an example, he sabotages a speech Chatur has been writing to give on Education Speech Night, where the Minister of Education and the President of the college attend with many students. Chatur, with his lack of knowledge in Hindi, mindlessly memorizes the compromised paper and becomes the laughingstock of the night. Highly insulted and driven to vengeance, he swears retaliation and bets that he will become more successful with his methods than Rancho. Meanwhile, Raju's paralyzed father goes into a cardiac arrest, and is saved in the nick of time by Rancho and Pia (Kareena Kapoor), Virus' daughter, who is doing residency in the city hospital. This makes Raju genuinely change his mind about Rancho and becomes his bosom friend along with Farhan. Rancho falls in love with Pia, and she reciprocates. Angered, Virus continually attempts to break Rancho's friendship with Farhan and Raju. However, they stick with Rancho always, who continuously comes first in every exam, while they are always last, barely passing, due to Farhan's photography passion, and since Raju is a scared man. Things further escalate four years later when the three friends drunkenly break into Virus's house one night, in order for Rancho to finally profess his love for Pia; unfortunately Virus finds out. The next day, Virus threatens to rusticate Raju unless he pins the drunken incident on Rancho. Not wanting to betray his friend or let down his family, Raju attempts suicide and ends up in a coma. With two months of extensive care from his mother, Rancho, Farhan, and Pia, he makes a full recovery and thus discards his fear of the future, adopting Rancho's outlook. His frankness impresses the corporate agents during a job interview and they hire him. Farhan, goaded by his friends, convinces his parents to allow him to drop out of school and follow his wildlife photographer dream. Furious, with his dignity and pride ruined as a result of Fahran and Raju getting jobs,Virus schemes to set Raju an impossibly tough final exam, as the job offer is contingent on graduation....
