Exceptional content, Jolly LLB’s piercing dialogues have been well presented by a strong cast. The film is a winner with thrilling moments.

Akshay Kumar fans will be thrilled with this film that has a combination of both comedy, emotion and some serious commentary on judiciary system. Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly (Akshay Kumar) is a harassed lawyer who makes his living assisting a big time Lucknow lawyer and also by taking up small cases individually. His wife, Pushpa (Huma Qureshi) enjoys her drink and is very supportive of her husband. After unintentionally messing up with Hina’s (Sayani Gupta) case, Jolly’s conscience feels defeated and he decides to bring her justice. He faces a fight against well-known lawyer, Mathur (Annu Kapoor) while Sundar Lal Tripathi (Saurabh Shukla) is the judge in charge. A complicated case that circles around terrorism, corruption and counterfeit encounters becomes a threatening affair for Jolly. Subhash Kapoor had presented a great film with Jolly LLB. His first film got a lot of appreciation, this film was expected to do better. The sequel is a fun ride that has many serious turns and deals with a plot that revolves around terrorism and corruption. The dialogues are original and the film creates an emotional connect in the second half. All the courtroom scenes are very well written, the transition from Jolly’s career to handling a big case is worth watching. The portrayal of Indian judiciary and the procedures of lower courts does quite rightly here.

Akshay Kumar is exceptional as Jolly. He owns his role perfectly and pulls off the role of transitioning from a schemer to somebody who takes justice seriously is brilliant. He is brilliant in scenes where he has a face off in court with Annu Kapoor’s character. Saurabh Shukla is perfect for the role in this film. His act of judge Sundar Lal Tripathi is outstanding. Annu Kapoor gives a brilliant role as Mathur, a true Lucknowi laywer. Huma Qureshi is perfect playing her role of Jolly’s wife, Pushpa. Sayani Gupta has given a powerful impact on her scenes. Kumud Mishra is great in a negative role for a change.

Subhash Kapoor has been excellent in all departments for this film such as story, direction and screenplay. His story is commendable. Jolly LLB 2 is entertainer and also hard hitting. Watch the film for stunning performances by Saurabh Shukla and Akshay Kumar.
