An Honest & Well-Intensioned Film!
17 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'Jolly LLB' Directed by Subhash Kapoor, is An Honest & Well-Intensioned Film! It has a worthy, inspiring story to tell & bravura performances working to its advantage. This Is Good Cinema!

'Jolly LLB' Synopsis: A small-time advocate goes head-to-head with a high-profile advocate, when the former re-opens a controversial case.

'Jolly LLB' works because the Screenplay is strong & progressive. The narrative is funny, inspiring & honest. The final act, stands out. Its wonderfully penned & executed. Subhash Kapoor has directed the film with utmost honesty & sincerity. He handles the comedic as well the dramatic portions like a pro. Cinematography is perfect. Editing is sharp. Music by Krsna is good.

Performance-Wise: Arshad Warsi is competent. A consistently great actor like Boman Irani is flawless, yet again. Saurabh Shukla is on a roll. After his stupendous performance in 'Barfi', Shukla emerges a scene-stealer in 'Jolly LLB'. His portions are marvelous & his performance is among the reasons why those portions work. Amrita Rao is fine. Mohan Kapoor & Harsh Chhaya are efficient. Sanjay Mishra, Brijendra Kala & Mohan Agashe shine in cameos.

On the whole, 'Jolly LLB' is a worthy watch.
