Arshad Warsi's much loved act in Subhash Kapoor's 'Jolly LLB' sure got enough affection from the audiences and that was reason enough to make a sequel that is bigger and better, and what would be better than Akshay Kumar's worthy shoulders to carry the mantle forward.
Jagdish Tyagi becomes Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly however his pursuits are the same. He is far from a respected lawyer but dreams of travelling in a Rolls Royce until he gets an opportunity to fight the corrupt judiciary. The fight gets tougher and that makes 'Jolly LLB 2' a power packed courtroom drama. A film that turns from comic to tragic and tragic to comic again with a blink of an eye and that's what is entertaining about it. Add to it his banter with Nemesis Sachin Kantilal Mathur (Annu Kapoor) and Justice Sunderlal Tripathi (Saurabh Shukla) and you are surely in for a treat.
Akshay's unparalleled comic timing and dialogue delivery takes the film notches higher. He is not the star that you know of and this one is far from his mindless entertainers. Huma Qureshi as his alcoholic, trying to make him sane wife, is pretty good. They make a pretty awesome Jodi and filmmakers should absolutely use them more. Shukla takes on the same character and plays it even better showcasing the troubles a judge faces when moved from Delhi high court to Lucknow court. We do miss Boman Irani but Annu Kapoor too does a swell job. Rest of the supporting cast is superb as well. The actors make sure that there isn't a dull moment in the film.
The songs though decent are deterrent to the flow of the film but you can still do with them given that we are so used to it now. However, the film overall would have certainly been better without them. The background score is good and the editing perfect that makes the film pacey as well as calm just at the right places.
There is no way that you will be bored watching this one so please book your tickets and watch the film that has the masala as well as a good plot with a message this weekend.
