While touching main problems in India, Jolly LLB delivers with humor.
27 April 2013 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

JOLLY LLB is a drama/comedy movie directed by Subhash Kapoor, starring Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani & Amrita Rao.

The film revolves around the case of Rahul Dewan, who drove over a pathway, killing several laborers in the bargain. The main lawyer hired by the Dewan family is Rajpal (Boman Irani) who is a respected lawyer amongst many law courts. On the other hand, there's a lawyer named Jagdish Tyagi (Arshad Warsi), also called Jolly by many. He's a failing lawyer with a girlfriend (Amrita Rao) annoyed with him at times. Rajpal wins the case eventually but Jolly doesn't feel convinced and starts looking for evidence, and files a PIL. The rest of the film forms who wins the case.

Okay, so I saw Jolly LLB twice in the cinema because it was actually pretty good. When I saw the trailer of this film, I wasn't convinced whether it would be good or not but it striked me as pretty decent. It isn't as humorous as it seems, it focuses more on the court case. There are some funny scenes, especially the final hearing.

The acting was extremely good from Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani, although I felt that Amrita Rao didn't have that much of a role.

Except for 'Jhooth Boliya', I didn't like any of the songs and felt they were extremely unneeded in the film and was just added at awkward parts of the movie.

In the end, I will say that Jolly LLB is an extremely good movie. Its good to see it as a family, its good to see it as an individual. It touches key points of Indian society, and it touches a bit of humor along with it, just not to bore you. Jolly LLB is definitely worth it.
