Story: Dhruv (Divyendu Sharma) is an aspiring IAS officer, who decides to take a car loan from a private company in order to woo the girl he loves, Sakshi (Prachi Mishra), who works in the same private company from where he takes the loan. Soon Dhruv and Sakshi become friends and the latter ends up inviting Dhruv for her birthday bash. At the bash, Sakshi's credit card doesn't work and Dhruv comes to her rescue and pays her bill costing 30000. Due to this unexpected expense, Dhruv gets delayed in paying the EMI of the loan, failing to which his car gets seized. However, later Dhruv along with his friend Happy (Pradhuman Singh) manage to collect money and get their car back. And while they are returning back after collecting the car, they halt at a restaurant to collect food, which is where their car gets stolen. Are they successful in getting their car back and nabbing the thief Minocha (Jackie Shroff), is what forms the basic plot of the story.
Performance: Talented actor like Divyendu Sharma, who impressed us with his acting in 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' and 'Chashme Baddoor', fails to perform in the movie. His role is neither interesting nor entertaining. In fact, we are surprised as to what made him sign up for the film. All we could do is sit and regret seeing a performer like Sharma in such a poorly written and edited movie. Debutante Prachi Mishra as Sakshi is equally horrible. Neither can she act nor can she deliver her dialogues right! Pradhuman Singh as Happy and Ira Dubey as Nimmy were just about okay in their roles. However, they had nothing much to do. Jackie Shroff was the only actor who was bearable in the movie. But since his role too was half baked, we were bored.
Direction: Debutante director Japinder Singh needs to sit and contemplate as to why did she decide to make a film like this! Firstly, the title of the movie 'Dilliwali Zaalim Girlfriend' doesn't fit right because there is nothing about the girlfriend. The whole movie is about a f*****g stolen car! Secondly, there was no need to have almost 8-9 songs in a 121 minute long film. Absolutely no need! Thirdly, the editing of the film was pathetic. I mean, if you guys spent so much on the film's locations, you could have might as well spent some more on a good editor. The movie was shoddily edited and appeared completely abrupt. Also why was Dhruv (Divyendu Sharma) singing songs all the time? Where did Sakshi (Prachi Mishra) disappear in the second half? If Dhruv and Happy were out of money all the time, how did they manage to buy cameras? What about Dhruv's loan? Did he repay it? What was the DDLJ reference? And could you please explain the film's climax? What the hell was it? None of us present in the audi understood what the f**k was happening?!
Combo-on-Offer: A stupid romance + abruptly written drama = a BORING movie
Verdict: We give the film TIGHT SLAPS for its stupid content, shoddy editing and poor performances.
