Rating : ***1/2
Subhash kapoor and Akshay Kumar brought us a sequel to 2013 National Award winning film Jolly LLB which was also a commercial success. I will not waste this space to focus deeply on story as it is good to watch on a big screen only.But just to give you a brief idea, Jolly LLB 2 is a story of a struggling small-town lawyer, Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly, who takes on a murder case and finds himself in the center of an elaborate police cover-up. Akshay plays a lawyer who is corrupt and is only looking for ways to make quick money. However, eventually he tumbles upon a case that threatens his mere existence and that’s where the story begins. Will he stand up for justice or will he bow down to the many bullies who are ready to pull the trigger the minute he decides to set out for justice?
For answers to all these questions you’d better visit theaters near you.
I’m happy to note that Akshay Kumar’s satirical courtroom drama has its heart in the right place. Now such premise of fake encounters (One that Jolly LLB2 has) has constantly provided fodder for Bollywood gangster thrillers, but director Subhash Kapoor gives it a legal spin here.And the protagonist that is Akshay Kumar is introduced as a crafty lawyer with questionable scruples. But like all good things in films , there are some bad things too. Especially a slow paced second half. But thanks to directors fast paced but genuine and intelligently handled last 20 minutes’ part. Film slows down only to pick up again in pre-climax.
But the most important thing about film is , it fulfills your expectations.Yes. It gives you what you expect from an Akshay Kumar starer that is ENTERTAINMENT .
Subhash Kapoor’s courtroom drama entertains you and lives in your mind for though not long but for some time.You won’t regret and You’ll leave the theaters with a smile on your face.
What’s Good : Story , Performances , Dialogues ,Comic scenes , Entertaining One liners, and Climax
What’s Bad : Slow paced second half and Absence of a chart buster song.
Watch or Not : Definitely watch Jolly LLB 2 for its high entertainment quotient and solid performance by Akshay Kumar, Annu Kapoor and Saurbh Shukla.
It has SUPER HIT written all over it.It will keep Happy and smiling each and everyone concerned. Sure Shot WINNER !Take your families to theaters and enjoy the film. I’m going with three and a half out of 5 star for Jolly LLB 2.
