You can achieve beautiful grades without the use of plug-ins. If you could get your hands in a Premiere version with the Lumetri tool built in, you can achieve almost anything you can imagine. It's very powerful! And you can place masks and track them too! But even in older versions of Premiere, you can start with a cool LUT(search lut buddy) and then do minor or major adjustments with curves, levels, add grain etc. Davinci and Magic Bullet tools are too memory and system heavy for older machines and are not absolutely needed to achieve the film look you want. Not needed at all actually.

I suggest to grab some screen captures of your favourite films or videos and try to create the same look in your footage. You know: a little brighter, warmer, some greens there, etc. All curves and basic adjustments. You'll be amazed by how close you can get, without using any plug-ins!
