A Jolly Good Courtroom Drama! Pleasurable!
16 March 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

Each & every time you move forward to have a closer look and a leaner ear to the drama, this movie scores for Jolly LLB is a fantastic thriller drama which showcases the maddening reality of India, its judicial system and people's wrath & lax attitude on crime.

A standing ovation to Boman Irani for such a beautiful and genuine performance as a senior advocate. Saurabh Shukla is faaantastic as the judge and towards the end, his ire-ridden, frustrated reply to one of the lawyers leading is just the best scene of the movie; JLLB runs for a sweet little about 2 hours with no cheap humor or blatant slapstick as one is continuously experiencing in Bollywood genres. Arshad Warsi is poignant and dramatic after his "Zila Ghaziabad" villainy look. Amrita Rao didn't have much to play, maybe that is why she was casted. After "I Love You Mr. Kalakaar," this is her latest role and she does good enough. The rest of the cast is good as the direction is cheeky.

Screenplay is straightforward while some songs made me yawn because the script didn't need them to entice me. The balance of thrills, spine- chills and oohs and aahs and whoas is equal on the two halves. Plus, since it is a based on a true story which is indeed based on vendetta, Jolly LLB is a pretty good entertainer with not much left for the audience to interpret other than enjoying it. I could forget some loopholes or plot points for this as it made my day.

BOTTOM LINE: Watch it if you have a thing for courtroom dramas or if you get emotional by the callous judicial system of India. 'Cause this one is a genuine entertainer based on sheer facts.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
