Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, is the story of Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) and Anjali (Kajol). Both of them students at St. Xavier’s College. Anjali being a tomboy gets along very well with Rahul and the other boys. Rahul and Anjali are also the best of friends. Being so close to each other, Rahul and Anjali would probably have fallen in love, however they were too busy enjoying themselves being best buddies! And then Tina (Ranee Mukherjee) the Principal’s daughter came into their lives. For Anjali, Tina was a third member of their gang, however, for Rahul, his life was never the same after meeting her. He fell in love with Tina. Anjali was finally beginning to fall in love with Rahul, and when she finally does manage to sum up the courage to tell Rahul about her feelings, Rahul tells her in his usual friendly manner, that he is falling in love with Tina. Totally oblivious to him, he broke her heart. Broken hearted Anjali decides to leave the college mid-term making up an excuse. It is at this point that Tina’s suspicions come true.
Tina and Rahul marry and have a child — whom they name Anjali. Tina dies in childbirth, but previously writes a series of eight letters. Every year, on Anjali’s birthday, she is given a letter and hears her mother’s loving wishes for her. In the eighth and last letter, the little girl is told about her namesake. Where Rahul had been blind, Tina had noticed the older Anjali’s change of heart, and pitied her deeply. If Rahul hasn’t remarried, perhaps his first love could be the mother that the young Anjali needs and wants.
Rahul has refused to remarry; he has thrown himself into his work with the intensity of desperation. Anjali Jr. believes that the older Anjali can make her beloved father happy again, and decides to help her father reclaim his lost paramour. She soon recruits her doting grandmother (Rahul’s mother played by Farida Jalal) and grandfather (Tina’s father played by Anupam Kher) as accomplices.
The unlikely conspirators locate Rahul’s old flame and contrive to make Rahul and Anjali meet again. Rahul soon finds old feelings reviving. However, there is a complication. Anjali has bowed to her family’s wishes and is engaged to another man, Aman (played by Salman Khan). Complications ensue, but all ends well as Aman steps aside to let the fated couple marry at last.
