THE STATE vs JOLLY LL.B 2 MOVIE REVIEW
A sequel to the 2012 movie Jolly LLB 2, is a courtroom drama encompassing the struggle of a lawyer. The film emphasises on the importance of an apt ‘judiciary system’, along with it’s bigger picture. Writer-Director Subhash Kapoor having an in-depth knowledge about the legal system and its nuances has crafted the story, which has a similar storyline as its last instalment. Although, this Jolly isn’t a slouch like Warsi’s Jolly was in the beginning of that film. He has a wife and a kid and is getting his way through, by hook or by crook.
Overall it is conceptualised in an interesting manner showcasing the shady law and order with a pinch of humour. The film revolves around the story of a mistaken identity of J&K terrorist. Jolly the male protagonist though smart struggles to create an identity of his own while working as a sidekick for a senior lawyer. Jagdishwar Mishra’s story takes a violent turn to wake you up from slumber. A nightmare scene particularly is the stuff of embarrassments followed by a series of incidents.
As the story unfolds there are many instances where the emotional quotient is raised high with sudden outbursts and critical situations. The courtroom scenes have a share of humorous punches which lightens the mood. The film has an interesting story. Kudos to writer Subhash Kapoor, who treads the route of minimalism with effortless ease. Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureshi, complement each other brilliantly. Saurabh Shukla defines his swag by stealing the show with his perfect comic timing and humorous punches. Saurabh Shukla’s role as Justice Sunderlal Tripathi is the most gripping character. The sort of vivid verbal infighting keeps the pace, spotted with some hilarious casual lines which he shares with the stars generously, engages the audience. Overall, Jolly LLB encapsulates the premise of a politically charged drama giving way to the judicial theatre.
