Plot[edit]

Koroli Nair, the sole child of a London-based business tycoon, settles in Delhi to fulfil her ‘pursuit of happiness’. Much to her dad’s disappointment,she has no interest in upgrading herself as an entrepreneur & wants to settle down with a man and be a mother to her future kids. She teaches English at the British Council in New Delhi which makes her feel content & satisfied in her own way.

Sumit Uppal, a typical Lajpat Nagar ‘launda’, wants to make it big as an actor in Bollywood. He works as the star trainer at a local gym & has clearly worked on his aesthetics & physique. He is a highly ambitious chap with star-studded dreams of walking the red carpet, brushing shoulders with some of Bollywood’s finest.

He joins Koroli’s English class at the Language School. Initially meeting one another as a teacher and student, their proximity escalates when they meet each other in a nightclub. Later, this creates the path for attraction & the radically opposite duo gets close to one another.

The story revolves around the friendship and the love story of Sumit and Koroli, along with the big and small nuances of a relationship. The ups and downs of love and friendship are portrayed with fun, madness and craziness.

Critical reception[edit]

Renuka Vyavahare of The Times of India gave the film a rating of 2.5 out of 5 saying that, "Barring the earnest performances of the lead actors and the supporting cast, there’s absolutely nothing wild or memorable about Dil Juunglee."[4] Sweta Kausal of the Hindustan Times gave the film a rating of 2 out of 5 saying that, "Dil Juunglee is yet another repeat of the centuries-old love story with a cliched narrative. It is only Taapsee Pannu's charm and Saqib Saleem's earthiness that keep the movie from getting unbearable."[5] Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV gave the film a rating of 1.5 out of 5 saying that, " Every bit in Taapsee Pannu and Saqib Saleem's film is a bit on the wild side, completely arbitrary and illogical."[6] Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express gave the film a rating of 1 out of 5 saying that, "The Taapsee Pannu and Saqib Saleem starrer follows the standard rom-com template, and apart from literally a few moments, the whole thing is a slog."[7]

Namrata Joshi of The Hindu reviewed the film saying that, "Disjointed, tackily put together with no sense of drama and direction, it will be difficult to top this one on the inanity stakes this year."[8] Sukanya Verma of Rediff gave the film a rating of 1 out of 5 saying that, "Just when it looks our film-making is moving away from idolising toxic archetypes for the sake of romantic fulfillment, Aleya Sen's Dil Juunglee comes along and squashes it in entirety."[9] Umesh Panwani of Koimoi gave the film a rating of 1 out of 5 saying that, "Dil Juunglee is one of those films you give someone a dare to watch."[10] Arnab Banerjee of Deccan Chronicle gave the film a rating of 1 out of 5 saying that, "Touted as a romantic comedy this Taapsee Pannu and Saqib Saleem starrer is the kind of film whose screenwriting, acting and plot twists are so unforgivable, they leave you more embarrassed than entertained."[11]
