There is a real world outside the Bollywood courtrooms where a common man can’t differentiate between a corrupt judiciary and a fraud police administration. By adding some dark humor into it you get Jolly LLB 2, sequel of Jolly LLB (2013).
Troubled with such structured corruption, a lawyer, suddenly awakened by his conscience, decides to take on this nexus of police, judiciary and criminals.
Jolly LLB 2 is a film that makes important point and relevant points regarding distorted law enforcement and justice delivery in a democracy of dis-empowered and oppressed Indian constituents.
Kanpur’s Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly (Akshay Kumar) practices in the “Lucknow High Court” and want to own a chamber. His father has been a stenographer for a top lawyer for many years, and it makes Jolly his natural successor. This is how he gets treated at work. His boss sends him to buy vegetables and he is also supposed to help arrange a domestic party for him.
Another character Saurabh Shukla playing the role of Justice Sunderlal Tripathi who has undergone a bypass surgery, he has to dance at his daughters wedding. And he used to practice the dance steps in Court itself.
Time has hardened Sachin Mathur who role is played by Annu Kapoor, Jolly’s nemesis and a prolific lawyer in the city, who is not afraid of even fighting the judges – an interesting departure from the original where nobody dared to insult justice Tripathi at the Delhi high court.
Large part of the film remind the audience of those legal satire shows where the judicial system looks like a Huge, Dark Joke. Most of the time joke is on Jolly, few times it’s on us too. Also, the movie appears a bit confused between a Satire and a Thriller.
Things that works perfectly was the focus on real issues like Terrorism, Corruption & Under-Pressure Judges. Kapoor has induced small, funny moments at crucial junctures that work as perfect breathers. Thanks to his understanding of court procedures, his characters look human.
Akshay Kumar ensures that you keep on laughing at regular interval. He will make you remember Arshad Warsi, but also he add his touch to Jolly. Jolly LLB 2 is a solid 140 minutes Entertainer Bollywood movie.
