    Verdict - Subhas Kapoor Will Hands Down Win Your Hearts With This Intense Courtroom Drama!

    Jolly  LLB 2Watch trailerRelease date : February 10, 2017

    For most people who had gone to the theatres to watch Jolly LL.B did not come out disappointed. In fact Jolly LL.B proved to be not just a good movie but had a very well sequenced court room drama!

    In fact courtroom dramas are a dicey business. If even a minute thing goes wrong, the entire cinematic experience may be ruined. But former journalist Subhas Kapoor had given a perfect mix of comedy and drama. The film went ahead to win the National Award that year.

    Definitely there would be the burden of expectations when a second part of such a brilliant movie is announced. The lead actor, Arshad Warsi, was replaced by Akshay Kumar and that created a lot of doubts in the mind of the audience. No doubt Akshay is a more nuanced actor, but then Arshad had shown that raw vulnerability of Jagdish Tyagi most effortlessly. But let me tell you one thing- this movie has just gotten better!

    The main reason is not Akshay Kumar though; it is Subhash Kapoor who makes the movie a winner. He has matured and grown. And that was reflected not just in the story but also in the dialogues and the screenplay (all of which has been done by the director himself). But Akshay too effortlessly slips into the shoes of Jagdiswar Mishra aka Jolly, the Kanpuria lawyer practising in Lucknow. He is shrewd and clever, but harmless. But when he unintentionally becomes the cause of a suicide, it is his guilty conscience that drives him to fight a big case all by himself. The cause this time is much graver, the people are more dangerous and the situations are even more real! And Kapoor uses PIL or Public Interest Litigation once again.

    The story keeps up a great pace throughout. There is comedy, there is thrill and there is so much drama. There is a little action too and this film has everything in the most perfect proportion. Except for the last part where it was didactic in a few shots. But overall, it the story that will keep you hooked to your seats.

    Now coming to the actors, that is little left to be said about Akshay. He could bring out that shrewdness and vulnerability at the same time. We have already seen how good an actor the star can be and he gets a full scope to display his talent with this film.

    Saurabh Shukla and Sanjay Mishra retain their original roles. Saurabh Shukla's character also jokingly mentions about 'Dilli ka Jolly', Jagdish Tyagi. Sayani Gupta has a short but very impactful cameo. She will definitely leave a mark on the audience. This film will make you realise that she is one underrated actress in Bollywood.

    The best though seems to be Annu Kapoor. He is a gem of an actor. He tries his best to save his client, trying all kinds of tactics possible. It is his mannerisms that will win your heart.

    But Huma Qureshi turned out to be a disappointment, partly because she did not have much meat in her role. Hers was the most poorly skectched character!

    Overall the movie is a good watch. It will remind you of the previous part in a lot of parts. But at the same time Akshay Kumar and Annu Kapoor's brilliant performances along with a more mature and thrilling story from Kapoor will definitely make it worth your entire mullah! Go watch the movie!
