Saher Sethi (Sahher Bambba), a vlogger from Delhi, goes to Manali in order to review a solo trekking trip organised by Camp Ujhi Dhaar, which is run by Karan Sehgal (Karan Deol). She thinks that the extremely expensive solo trip is a scam and she would expose the camp's owner. Although they start off at bitter note, things started to improve between the two during their trip, which eventually leads to Karan falling for her. He doesn't confess his feelings, but tells her that he is afraid of attachment. Saher confesses to him that she wanted to become a singer but couldn't follow her passion as Viren, her boyfriend, made fun of her at an open mic. He takes Saher to his childhood spot, where he sees a snow leopard, and remembers his mother, who died in an avalanche when she tried to capture a snow leopard on her camera. The trip finally comes to end, Karan drops Saher at the airport and both of them bid goodbye to each other.
On reaching Delhi, Saher too realizes that she has fallen in love with Karan, and thus breaks up with Viren. She informs Karan that she is performing again at an open mic, and indirectly asks him to come to Delhi. Karan unexpectedly shows up at the Open Mic and they both confess their love for each other and share a kiss. The next day, at Saher's house party, Karan is introduced to Saher's family members and also meets Viren, who invites Karan to his party the next day. Seeing Saher and Karan close and happy with each other, Viren feels devastated and becomes angry and pledges that he will do anything to be with Saher, whether right or wrong. Next Day, Saher's father talks to Karan in anger, and when Saher asks him, he replies that Viren told him everything. Saher speaks to Viren over the phone for lying to his parents, but he blackmails her about leaking her photos, which he took secretly on the Goa trip. Karan goes to Viren, and when Viren abuses Saher and Karan's mother, he thrashes him. Feeling insulted, Saher posts a video online of being eve-teased by Viren, who gets to know about this, goes to Saher's house and gets involve in a fight with her, when accidentally, Saher slips off the first floor. With Saher now in a comatose condition, Viren's parents, with the help of political power, turn the case against Saher and beat up Karan.
Seeing Saher's condition deteriorating, and her family suffering all the disrespect, Karan goes to Viren's house, beats him up and drags him to the hospital and tells him to apologize to Saher. When he refuses, Karan chokes his throat, almost killing him, but Viren's mother asks him to leave him and she apologizes to everyone.
Saher soon recovers from the accident and in the end credits, Karan and Saher are shown as happily married couple.

The film mostly received mixed to negative reviews.
Monika Rawal Kukreja writing for Hindustan Times noted that the film had done justice to its genre and praised Karan Deol and Sahher Bambba for their onscreen freshness. Also praising cinematography and music, she criticised the writing for lacking punch dialogues and effective humour. Concluding she opined, "Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas is definitely one of your run-of-the-mill love stories, but it makes you smile, cry, laugh and brings a sense of freshness."
Gaurang Chauhan of Times Now rated it 2.5 stars out of 5, stated that "Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas is a visually stunning film with some good tunes but the movie somehow misses the mark due to its overlong length and a mediocre screenplay. Sahher Bambba impresses".
Parina Taneja of India TV gave 2 stars out of 5 and opined, that it was a love story that failed to leave the audience with lingering moments. Agreeing with Chauhan, Taneja praised the performance of Bambba, direction and cinematography. Criticising screenplay and pace of the film she noted that music though melodious didn't add value to the film. Concluding, she wrote, "Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas is a one time watch only if you really want to enjoy the breathtaking visuals of Himachal Pradesh.
Further NDTV rated the movie 1 out of 5 and wrote "Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas lacks the freshness that one would expect from a film with a new romantic pair. The reason is obvious: the plot is as old, but not as sturdy, as the hills."
The film performed poorly at the box office, collecting ₹10.03 crore against a ₹60 crore budget. Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas collected ₹1.15 crore on the opening day with a total opening weekend collection of ₹ 4.15 crore.
After Himalay Ki God Mein, Henna, Jab We Met, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and dozens of other Bollywood films, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas perfectly captured the beautiful locations of Kullu Manali. As films have played an important role in tourism promotion in Himachal, particularly Manali, many tourists thronged Manali to trace back the shooting locations of Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. Thousands of people searched for the locations online and expressed their wish to visit in the future.
