Warsi has had to make to way for Akshay Kumar; In jolly LLB-2 “Jolly” now refers Jagdishwar Mishra, not Jagdish Tyagi. The assumption, though, is much the same: unpolished newbie lawyer goes up against smooth-talking big city professional, grows morals, takes on the system. This new Jolly is tasked with proving the integrity of Iqbal (Manav Kaul), wrongly stigmatized as a terrorist and shot by the police in a fake encounter. Contending for the defense is Pramod Mathur (Annu Kapoor), a Lucknow lawyer who’s friends with the policeman who killed Iqbal.

  • Genre – Comedy
  • Star Cast – Akshay Kumar, Huma Qureshi, Anu Kapoor, Saurabh Shukla
  • Director –Subhash Kapoor
  • Rating –  4/5

Some of the victim scrappiness of the 2013 film survives, but casting Kumar in the lead means an affluence of what, for lack of a better word, one might call “hero moments”. When Warsi in the first film frightened to slap someone silly in court, it was both funny and revealing of a streetwise style up against something much bigger than himself. When Kumar tries to do the same (thrice), it’s what the public already expects from him. This is not to say that Kumar isn’t an efficient Jolly—there’s a supportive solidity to his performance—but when you bring in a huge star to substitute a minor one, there are times that have to be hit. Jolly LLB 2 movie review

Jolly LLB 2 has a busy plot, but the film’s real victory is the wealth of feature that informs the scenes. Kapoor, who’s also written the film, has a good eye and ear for the mildly surreal and the blackly comic: a suhaag raat scene with the husband in handcuffs, a cricket matches between sari-clad and hijab teams. His visual technique is modest but notices how the background is always busy, whether it’s policemen laughing or Pushpa (Huma Qureshi), Jolly’s wife, wiping their kid’s nose. Kapoor also has a talent for efficiently describe the side characters. Annu Kapoor (very droll), Kumar and Shukla get the best lines, but Rajiv Gupta as Jolly’s sidekick, Kaul as Iqbal, and Inaamulhaq (in a late cameo) all have a brief, memorable turns. Jolly LLB 2 movie review

There’s little skepticism about what sort of film Jolly LLB 2 wants to be: accessible, broad and successful. Seldom, this result in scenes more confusing than stirring, like when Mathur frames a sit-down in court and an exasperated Tripathi joins him in opposition. However, even in the more grandiose moments, there’s often emotion to be found. At the end, the judge gives a talk about the ways of the Indian legal system. As he speaks, the camera moves back slowly to show stacks and stacks of case files—justice delayed, perhaps denied. Jolly LLB 2 movie review

Last few words

The plot has enough laugh-out-loud situations and emotional outbreaks to keep you invested mainly in the razor-sharp first half of the film. The film also gives the right dose of action inside and outside the courtroom. With cops acting villains and terrorists switching religions, legal novice Jolly finds himself dodging shots in Kanpur, Lucknow, and Manali(doubling up for Kashmir.) Jolly LLB 2 movie review

Akshay Kumar changes shades from dishonest to straight, like a chameleon. In top form, he puts up a perfect example of a street-smart attorney who hasn’t read legal documents but who has picked up tips from courtroom hallways to become Jolly LLB. Jolly LLB 2 movie review
