Synopsis :
"Farhan Qureshi (R. Madhavan), Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi), and Rancchoddas Shyamaldas Chanchad ""Rancho"" (Aamir Khan) are three engineering students who share a room in a hostel at the 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 raise his family's fortunes while Rancho, driven by his passion for machines and devices, studies for sheer joy of it. However, due to this different approach Rancho incurs the wrath of dean of college, Professor Viru Sahastrabudhhe (ViruS) (Boman Irani). Rancho irritates lecturers with his creative and unorthodox answers. He confronts ViruS after fellow student Joy Lobo commits suicide. Joy had requested an extension on his major project on compassionate grounds— ViruS refused any extension. Rancho denounces the dog-eat-dog, rat race mentality of the institution, blaming it for Lobo's death.
ViruS labels Rancho and his friends as ""idiots"" and attempts on a number of occasions break Rancho's friendship with Farhan and Raju. In contrast, ViruS’ favorite student is Chatur Ramalingam or ""Silencer"", (Omi Vaidya) whose thinking is completely opposite from Racho who toes the line of the system, believes in mindless memorizing over understanding, in order to reach his goals of corporate and social status. On Teacher's Day Chatur is awarded the honour of making a speech. Since Rancho is well aware of Chatur's nature Rancho substitutes some of the speech paper with obscene words which has been written by the librarian. As expected, Chatur mindlessly memorises the speech, aided by his lack of understanding of Hindi. His speech becomes the laughing stock of the audience, infuriating the authorities in the process.
Meanwhile, Rancho also falls in love with ViruS' medical student daughter Pia (Kareena Kapoor) when he, Raju and Farhan crash her sister's wedding banquet in order to get a free meal, in the process further infuriating ViruS.
Meanwhile, the three students continue to anger ViruS, although Rancho continues to come first in every exam, while Chatur is always second, and Farhan and Raju are consistently in the last two positions. The tensions come to a head when the three friends, who are already drunk, break into ViruS's house at night to allow Rancho to propose to Pia, and then urinate on a door inside the compound before running away when ViruS senses intruders. The next day, ViruS threatens to expel Raju unless he talks on the other two. Unable to choose between betraying his friend or letting down his family, Raju jumps out of the 3rd floor window, but after extensive care from Pia and his roommates, awakes from a coma.
The experience has changed Farhan and Raju, and they adopt Rancho's outlook. Farhan decides to pursue his love of photography, while Raju takes an unexpected approach for an interview for a corporate job. Farhan succeeds in convincing his father to allow him pursue his own dream and Raju attends the interview in plaster and a wheelchair and gives a series of non-conformal and frank answers, succeeding in the result. However, ViruS is unsympathetic and vows to make the final exam as hard as possible so that Raju is unable to graduate and will lose the job. Pia hears this and takes ViruS's spare keys with her. She tells Rancho of the exam, and he and Farhan break into ViruS's office and steals the exam and give it to Raju, who with his new-found attitude, is unconcerned with the prospect of failing, and refuses to cheat and throws the paper away. However, ViruS catches the trio and expels them on the spot. After that Pia angrily confronts him, denoucning him for the death of his son and Pia's brother. Pia reveals that her brother was not killed in an accident but committed suicide in front of a train leaving a letter because ViruS had forced him to pursue a career in engineering over his love for literature.
At the same time Viru's pregnant elder daughter Mona (Mona Singh) goes into labour. A heavy storm cuts all power and traffic, and Pia is still in self-imposed exile, so she instructs Rancho to deliver the baby in the college common room via VOIP, after Rancho restores power using car batteries and a power inverter that Rancho had dreamed up and ViruS had mocked. Rancho, Farhan, Raju together deliver the baby with the help of a cobbled-together Vacuum extractor.
After the baby is apparently stillborn, Rancho resuscitates it. ViruS reconciles with Rancho and his friends and awards the pen to Rancho which the professor had been keeping for decades before finding a brilliant enough student to gift it to and allows the three to appear their final exams.
Their story is framed as intermittent flashbacks from the present day, ten years after Chatur vowed revenge on Rancho for embarrassing him at the speech night and promised to become more successful than Rancho a decade later. Having lost contact with Rancho, who disappeared during the graduation party and went into seclusion, Raju and Farhan begin a journey to find him. They are joined by Chatur, now a wealthy and successful businessman, who joins them, brazenly confident that he has surpassed Rancho and also looking to seal a deal with a famous scientist and prospective business associate named Phunsukh Wangdu. When they find Rancho's house in Shimla, they find a completely different Rancho (Jaaved Jaffrey). from him they come to know that their friend was a destitute servant boy ""Chhote"" who loved learning, while he, the real Rancho, disliked study, so the family agreed to let the servant boy study in Rancho's place instead of labouring. In return, the real Rancho would pocket the qualifications and after graduating, the servant boy will cease all contact. The real Rancho reveals that Chhote is now a school-teacher in Ladakh.
Raju and Farhan then find Pia, and take her from her wedding mandap. Then they arrive in Rancho’s school. Pia and the fake Rancho rekindle their love, while Chatur mocks Rancho the school teacher. He asks Rancho to sign on a ""Declaration of defeat"" document. And sees that Rancho is using the pen which ViruS had gifted him. Chatur snatches the pen from Rancho and starts to move back. When Rancho's friends ask what his real name is, he reveals that his real name is Phunsukh Wangdu and makes a phone call to Chatur as Phunsukh Wangdu, to tell him that he will not be able to sign the deal with him because Chatur had taken his pen. Chatur is horrified accepts his defeat and pleads his case with Phunsukh to establish the business relationship he was after."
