The story is narrated by
Gulabji (Rani Mukherjee), a prostitute who frequents RK Bar, the town's most
luxurious club. The bar's lead singer, Raj (Ranbir Kapoor), whom she
affectionately calls "Saawariya" ("blue lover"), is a
free-spirited and kindhearted man. Despite knowing what Gulabji does, Raj is
friendly to her, and unlike other men, is kind to the other prostitutes,
trying to brighten their sad lives. When he tells Gulabji that he needs a job
and somewhere to stay, she tells him that there is only one woman who'll give
him a place to stay: Lilian (Zohra Sehgal) – but she allows only those she
likes. Raj meets Lilian and they have an emotional conversation, during which
Lillian reveals she had a son who left her many years ago and never returned.
She lets Raj stay with her because he reminds her of her long-lost son. That
night, Raj meets a mysterious girl. He tries to talk to her, but under the
wrong impression, she shouts at him to go away. Raj tells her that he will,
on the condition that he'd escort her to safety, lest someone with bad
intentions trouble her. As predicted by Raj, a drunkard begins following her
and Raj saves her from him. After that, she allows him to escort her home.
Raj discovers her name is Sakina (Sonam Kapoor) and falls in love with her.
Raj decides to confess his feelings to Sakina. He resigns from his job to see
her and calls her but she ignores him. He gets angry with her but the pair
reconcile. He takes her to his favorite place, on the top of the clock tower.
There, Sakina reveals that she is in love with a man named Imaan (Salman
Khan). Imaan had left but promised to return for Sakina on Eid. It has been a
while but she is still waiting for him faithfully. Hearing this, Raj becomes
heartbroken and doesn't confess. However, he refuses to believe that there is
an Imaan. He asks Gulabji for advice, who advises him to tell Sakina how he
feels. With the entire neighborhood cheering him on, Raj decides to propose
to Sakina on the night of Eid. He takes Sakina to RK Bar and sings his
favorite song for her. Sakina remembers that it’s time to meet Imaan and
leaves. Following her, Raj tells her that he has discovered that there is no
Imaan. Sakina tells him to let her go. Hurt, Raj goes to Gulabji, saying he
wants to sleep with her. Gulabji, who loves Raj, is deeply hurt and gets Raj
thrown out onto the street, where he is beaten up by a few of Gulabji's
henchmen. He returns to where Sakina is waiting. Imaan has still not arrived.
Sakina, heartbroken, becomes sure that Imaan will not come back so she
decides to be with Raj. Raj tries to make Sakina happy and succeeds. When
they are returning home, they pass the bridge where they first met and see
Imaan waiting for Sakina. Sakina hesitates as she steps toward Raj. Raj,
however, tells her to go and Sakina reunites with Imaan. The movie ends as a
tribute to Raj Kapoor, where Raj walks and sings in a style similar to Kapoor
from the film Shree 420, remembering the sweet moments he spent with Sakina.
