Storyline

Ilaaka - has a small little world of its own. A world of dreams and desires love and longings, hatred and hardships. This is Raja who stands at the cross roads of truth and traditions.. In this small world we have Suraj and Neha, the two crusaders against the might of evil. And we have the evil incarnated too! Nagar as vicious as a viper and as blood thirsty as a wolf. Here we have good old Masterji who is ready to sacrifice himself for his tiny world. And we have cunning Swami also, who is ready to destroy everything. Ilaaka has love and laughter, blood and tears. It is as delicate as a petal and as hard as steel. Ilaaka, a painting which has all the seven colours of rainbow. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

80's mindless films
16 March 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

ILAALA takes us back to those films made in the 80's which were senseless and repeated the same formula done to death

Those days Sanjay Dutt and Mithun starred in many such action films though Sanju did some good stuff like NAAM, KABZAA too ILAAKA is another addition to the masala genre

The film has several hilarious scenes unntentional like the first fight scene between Sanju, Mithun and some bear like looking man also Om Puri's jail escape The film follows the same formula done to death and ends being nothing great

Direction is awful Music is okay

Sanjay Dutt looks skinny and he was lil stiff and raw those days and does an okay job Mithun repeats his stuff Madhuri is the heroine, Amrita Singh too has a small part Amrish Puri, Om Puri are as usual Dharmendra in a cameo is as usual, Rakhee too does her stuff
