When the heart burns-eyes flash lightening and "DILJALAA" burns his enemies to ashes in the fire of revenge- Munna Babu got the first jolt when his Manager Daulatchand Gupta painted a false picture about the character of the girl, he had fallen in love at first sight.

The second jolt he received when D.C. Gupta's daughter, Mamta not only refused to marry him but insulted and humiliated him, as well as his mother Sharda Devi in front of a select gathering.

Finally his mother Sharda Devi was falsely implicated by the Manager Daulatchand Gupta for selling spurious drugs thereby causing the death of innocent children- and Daulatchand Gupta charged her in the court with false evidence- Sharda Devi couldn't bear the betrayal of trust reposed in Gupta and collapsed of a massive heart attack in court.

That was the last straw on the Camel's back for Munna Babu who lost control over himself and attacked D.C. Gupta like a wounded lion - But Gupta's henchmen overpowered and beat him mercilessly - Thinking him to be dead they threw his body in the river.

But a God fearing Faqir saved Munna Babu - It was like a re-birth for him. He swore to avenge his mother's untimely death, and the injustice done to him.

But who was that girl with whom Munna Babu had fallen in love at first sight?

Why did D.C. Gupta's daughter, Mamta refuse to marry Munna Babu?

How and in which guise did Munna Babu - succeeded in taking revenge?

To know all this see Romesh Films musical, heart-warming and action packed film "DILJALAA".
