Story: Dhruv (Divyendu Sharma), an aspiring IAS officer falls in love with Sakshi (Prachi Mishra), a car loan executive working for a private company. In order to impress her, he and his roommate Happy (Pradhuman Singh) buy a car on loan. However, the car gets stolen, making Dhruv suspect a foul play.
Review: Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend starts as a romcom, turns into a con caper, followed by a sting operation and finally ends as a love story. The plot of a woman luring a man to serve her own selfish interests, seems fun in the beginning, but it goes haywire to the extent that youa re least bothered about what happens to the characters or their plan to trap a dubious businessman Minocha (Jackie Shroff doing a terrible Punjabi accent), who rules the stolen cars business in Delhi. The story refuses to proceed and keeps meandering, much to your annoyance. Bored to death, you give up eventually and yearn for the film to end instead. In a bizarre turn of events, you have Dhruv falling in love with Nimmy (Ira Dubey), a TV journalist. This track makes no sense at all, but so does the rest of the film.
Barring Divyendu Sharma and Pradhuman Singha s camaraderie, nothing really works for the film. Slowmo love songs, Delhi dhabas and slangs have been done to death. To sum it up, the title has no relevance to the story. You' d rather stick to watching the Cricket World Cup instead, for this one is quite zaalim on the senses.
Reportedly, Prachi Mishra did not find the intimate scene with Divyendu Sharma tough at all.
Director Japinder Kaur wanted an intelligent looking woman for her film and wanted someone with the aura of a strong woman. That's how Ira Dubey was reportedly signed for the movie.
Prachi Mishra, who makes her Bollywood debut with this film, says she likes Mills & Boon romance.
Some of the film has been shot at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
The film begins with Dhruv (Divyendu Sharma), an aspiring IAS officer falling in love with Sakshi (Prachi Mishra), a car loan executive working for a private company. It's love at first sight for him. He lives with bets friend Happy (Pradhuman Singh) in Delhi. Broke and unemployed, the two plan to buy a car just to impress Sakshi by taking a loan and selling off Happy's mother's jewellery. Sakshi's company grants them loan and Dhruv becomes the owner of a red Santro. He offers to drop Sakshi to work often. She invites him to her lavish birthday party. Dhruv attends it and even ends up paying Rs 30000 to the organizers for it as Sakshi is unable to make the payment. She promises to return the money but doesn't do it. When Dhruv pushes for it as he needs to pay his loan installment, she flatly refuses. Dhruv's car is confiscated. Dhruv and Happy manage to gather some money and take their car back. However, the same day, the car gets stolen when parked outside a local restaurant. The two rush to police station to file a report but cops ignore the case. They soon discover that it's a racket and Minocha (Jackie Shroff) heads the business. They go the cops but refuse to believe them as Minocha is influential. Nimmy (Ira Dubey), a TV journalist suggests, they do a sting operation, which can unveil Minocha's reality. They plant cameras in his house, office and car and put him under 24/7 surveillance but the process seems tedious as nothing good comes out of it. Finally, when he does open up about his dubious business, they submit the proof to a local news channel and the cops but it goes in vain as they refuse to go against him. Finally, Dhruv puts up the entire footage of how Minocha steals cars online. It goes viral and the thief is arrested. Dhruv realizes that Sakshi had been working for Minocha as well. He eventually falls in love with Nimmy, who cancels her wedding for him.
