Blind critic movie review of Jolly LLB 2
February 13, 2017
A blind perspective:
Writer-Director Subhash Kapoor yet again packs a punch with his satirical courtroom drama, Jolly LLB 2.
Akshay Kumar is simply impressive as Jagdishwar Mishra, a struggling lawyer in Lucknow with his wife Pushpa (Huma Qureshi).
Whilst in his efforts of becoming a famous lawyer, Jolly finds himself responsible for the suicide of Hina (Sayani), a pregnant woman desperate to seek justice for her husband Iqbal (Manav Kaul) killed in a fake encounter.
Shaken by the guilt of Hina's death, Jolly begins the fight for justice against the corrupt policemen and crippled judiciary system.
The chemistry between Akshay Kumar, Saurabh Shukla as Justice Tripathi and Annu Kapoor as Advocate Mathur keeps the audience connected throughout the movie.
Sadly, there are numerous occasions where the Visually Impaired audience has to depend upon sighted assistance to understand the proceedings.
Especially during the flashback while Jolly studies Iqbal's case file. Also during the song 'Bawara Mann' when Jolly is shown recovering, after being shot with bullets.
Having been said this, the movie is sheer delight to watch for its realistic plot and well-written dialogues producing moments of hilarious laughter as well as emotional rush.
If you believe in "Satyamev Jayate", Jolly LLB 2 is definitely a must watch. Of course, with a sighted buddy!
A sighted perspective:
Jolly LLB 2 is a perfect courtroom drama with lots of entertainment. It is a sensible and daring movie that makes one feel that justice exists even in today's times.
It is interesting to watch the current judicial system and its working in the film. The story's theme that neither we want terrorists nor corrupt police officials have been presented in a beautiful and humorous manner.
Akshay Kumar as Jolly looks real and superb, Annu Kapoor as lawyer Mathur has acted extremely well in a negative role and Saurabh Shukla's extraordinary acting as Justice Tripathi is powerful. Honestly, Saurabh Shukla steals the show with his amazing dialogues and funny punchlines.
Huma Qureshi as Jolly's wife Pushpa is supporting. Huma doesn't have a major role as such in the film but no one could have done the small part better than her.
Director Subhash Kapoor deserves appreciation for keeping most of the scenes realistic. Nothing looks larger than life in the film.
Verdict: Jolly LLB 2 is a must watch for its good social message, excellent direction, tight script, perfect humour timing and best performance by all actors.
