Movie Review: Jolly LLB 2 (2017)

Box Office: Super Hit

Jolly-LLB-2Akshay Kumar plays a wily lawyer named Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly. He starts off as an opportunist who doesn’t mind breaking the law to earn an extra buck. Much like Arshad Warsi’s Jolly from the first film, Akshay Kumar’s Jolly is a guy desperate for professional acclaim. But his wily ways end up hurting innocent lives and that’s when Jolly goes from a conniving Uttar Pradesh guy to crusader of justice. In his pursuit for justice and truth, he’s shot at, ridiculed and humiliated. But Jolly refuses to give up against the power of influential senior lawyer Pramod Mathur (Annu Kapoor) and his corrupt client, police officer Singh (Kumud Mishra). Also part of the court room drama is the franchise’s ace judge Tripathi (Saurabh Shukla). Subhash Kapoor’s story is top grade. It follows the Jolly LLB formula and yet adds a lot more twists and turns to the narrative. But his choice of themes, the deep patriotic ones especially, become a little too preachy towards the climax.
