Dil toh bachcha hai ji is a romantic comedy and has a humourous take on love. It is a slice of life film about three men and their encounters with love. A listless Naren (Ajay Devgn), who is 38 and is divorced, falls in love with a vibrant and bubbly Jun Pinto (Shazahn Padamshree) who has just stepped out of her teens.
Milind Kelkar (Omi Vaidya), a naive poet and an idealistic lover, is besotted by an ambitious and practical Gungun Sarkar (Shraddha Das) who is determined to follow her dreams.
Then there is a charming Casanova Abhay (Emraan Hashmi), who is in search of love, sex and money. But one day he starts feeling the alien emotion called love and places it above all, when he is increasingly drawn towards Nikki (Shruti Hassan), a modern day girl who knows her wants and always speaks her mind.
Struggling to cope with modern women and contemporary relationships, these three men go through a fun - filled roller coaster ride of emotions with its constant highs and lows that usually accompany love. But will they succeed in their quest for happiness and love? Or does destiny have different plans for them? This is what forms the crux of the story.
