The title 'Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar!!' (Don't Take It to Heart) summarizes the attitude of the film. Life is unpredictable. Anything can happen in our scheme of things. Your wife can leave you, you can go bankrupt, and you can feel like committing suicide because of incidents in your life. It is a fun film that takes a slightly different look at various layers of life in city like Mumbai through the eyes of Ram Saran (Manoj Bajpai), a garage mechanic who hails from a small town. The film is also about his interaction with the different layers of society that is prevalent in the city. One layer is represented by Kaamya (Tabu), who is a journalist and represents the upper middle class; the upwardly mobile generation in our country, and the other layer of society is represented by his friend Gaitonde (Saurabh Shukla), who epitomizes the sort of despair that creeps into people born and brought up in the city and feel trapped. People who have been victims of their own helplessness, lack of values and lack of upbringing. Slowly Ram too becomes a part of Mumbai's system. 'Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar' is a film about the choices we make out of desperation.
