A rib-tickling comedy which is a satire on Indian Judiciary System
23 March 2013 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

Jolly LLB is a rib-tickling comedy which is a satire on Indian Court process and judiciary.

A small time lawyer wants to make it big by enforcing himself in a hit- and-run case where 6 innocent footpath dwellers are mowed by a speeding car.

From the director of "Phas Gaye Re Obama" , Jolly LLB is based on a true incident which grabbed media attention few years back. It also showed another incident where a pregnant woman was operated by a 14 year old lad. Jolly LLB also focuses on our poor judiciary where a single case is bought at the hand of big goons who desperately try to save their kids brushing their mistakes as act of innocence. Hats off to Subhash Kapoor for fearlessly depicting these events with ease. Few acts did catch my attention- the introduction court scene , the court fight scene between two music directors and the argument between Saurabh Shukla and Boman Irani will certainly bring down the house. Of course , the film has its share of flaw as well - the chemistry between Amrita Rao and Arshad Warsi , the unnecessary insertion of songs and dance (completely unrequired in this kind of cinema). 3 central characters - Arshad Warsi , Boman Irani and Saurabh Suhkla will drive you nuts with their admirable performances. Arshad Warsi not emotes well in comic scenes but is commendable in essaying serious role as well. Boman Irani , as usual , is marvelous. Saurabh Shukla as judge is simply fantastic. He is sure to make you laugh with typical Delhi accent and comic timings.

Jolly LLB is pleasure to watch not just for its satirical humor on Indian Judiciary system, but always for its beautiful message on honesty and bravery.
