The film is a love story that blossoms as the movie transports us to the picturesque locations in its first half and transitions to over-the-top drama in the second half.

Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas Story:
When video blogger Saher Sethi played by Saher Bamba embarks on a tedious trek with mountaineer Karan Sehgal played by Karan Deol, sparks are bound to fly. The question arises whether their love story blossoms or not despite the odds.
Much like Sunny Deol’s debut ‘Betaab’ his directorial venture also commences in the picturesque mountains in Kashmir. A young man named Karan Sehgal runs a trekking company called ‘Camp Ujhi’ which is very popular among tourists. Back in Delhi, India’s top vlogger who manages to bag the assignment to review ‘Camp Ujhi’. However, she is pretty sure that the super exorbitant camp is a scam and is adamant in busting it. This sets the stage for a typical love-hate encounter between the film’s leads.
There’s nothing but the picturesque locations in the first half that audiences can vouch for. Karan Deol is honest in his portrayal of an orphaned youngster, who had spent his entire childhood in the mountains. Saher looks glamorous and manages to make her presence felt.
However, for a film aspiring to be a love story has a lack of chemistry between the two leads. The film has melodious music. The second half of the film transitions into over-the-top drama. The cinematographers have done a commendable job. The film’s supporting cast also manages to live up to audience’s expectations. They have played their parts with utmost sincerity.
Sunny Deol wanted to make a sweet, innocent and simple love story. However, with meatier characters and more interesting story-line could he have made the film better.
