'Guddu' is a family drama with the positive social message of the benefits of donating one's eyes for the benefit of others. Vikram (Mukesh Khanna) who is a lawyer, and Kavita (Deepti Naval), his wife, happily complete their nuclear family with their only son, Guddu Bahadur (Shahrukh Khan). However, there is a fundamental incompatibility between the couple, as Kavita is a devout and a religious Hindu, while Vikram, ever the believer of logic, is an atheist. As Guddu grows up into a handsome young man, he falls in love with Salina Gupta (Manisha Koirala). One day while driving, they meet with an accident, and Salina loses her sight. Guddu blames himself, and so do Salina's parents, and he is asked to keep away from Salina. Salina, despite knowing that the accident was not Guddu's fault, rejects having further contact with Guddu, because she doesn't want to be a burden on him. One day, after a seemingly innocuous health checkup, Guddu overhears a conversation between their family doctor and his father, stating the shocking news that he is afflicted with a brain tumor, and may have no more than a few more months to live. The ever-generous Guddu wishes to donate his eyes to the hospital, so that Salina can benefit from them, but his father will not even consider this. Things take a turn for the worse, when Guddu decides to go to court to assert his right to donate his eyes; his father becomes so emotionally distressed by the move that he ends in the hospital and so does Guddu. Kavita is totally unable to bear the trauma of her husband's illness and her son's disease, so she decides to devote herself to god for five days without drinking a sip of water. Her prayers get answered and her husband's life is saved and her son's operation is successful. She dies in the feet of god while praying and her eyes get donated to Salina. Salina and Guddu get married and are blessed with twins and they live happily ever after.
