Don’t get me wrong. I am a big Jolly fan. Whether played by Arshad Warsi or Akshay Kumar the small-town lawyer’s socio-political awakening is heartwarming, to say the least. While Jolly Llb 2 is suffused with a swarming all-pervasive social conscience that ribs our guilt-ridden middleclass values and elbows our cynicism and slothfulness out of our range of activity, it suffers from a sense of overweening ambition.
Everything here is much larger than Jolly Llb, the 2013 sleeper hit about a lazy lawyer played with judicious jocosity by Arshad Warsi who takes ona cause-celebre that turns him into a responsible citizen. Arshad’s Jolly made us cheer for his growth into conscientiousness.
Again this writer-director Subhash Kapoor has his heart and conscience in the right place. »
