Bollywood got off to a good start this year as "Raees" racked in the moolah to continue the money spinning spree started by "Dangal"In the words of Annu Kapoor, this month we have "the most most saleable, commercially viable superstar" Akshay Kumar coming out with his first release of the year "Jolly LLB 2". It is the sequel of the 2013 sleeper hit, "Jolly LLB" & Fox Studios would be hoping that this would perform better than its predecessor. So will it be able to satiate the audience like the prequel???

Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly (Akki) is a struggling lawyer who does manage to make ends meet with his street smart nature taking up petty cases & other endeavours. However, his desire to make it big in his profession didnt find the support of his boss, a reputed lawyer Rizvi (Ram Gopal Bajaj) for whom Jolly's father had also worked as a munshi. His desire to secure a chamber for himself makes him lie to Hina Siddiqui (Sayani Gupta), a pregnant lady who have been trying to convince Jolly's boss to take up her case. He convinces her that his boss had entrusted him with the responsibility & collects the fees for it. But she soon realises that she had been fooled & commits suicide, which wakens the conscience in Jolly. Can he bring justice to her husband who was murdered in a fake encounter masterminded by Inspector Suryaveer Singh (Kumud Mishra)???

It's been a couple of years since Subhash Kapoor made his presence felt who has impressive movies like "Phas Gaya Re Obama" & "Jolly LLB" to his credit. As in the case of most of his other movies, he has donned multiple caps here as well with the script & screenplay also of his creation. The dialogues were humorous & ironic which was interspersed with unpleasant hard hitting facts. Just as in the prequel, the court scenes were interesting & hilarious but there were portions which lagged due to inconsistencies in the script & unnecessary placement of songs . On the brighter side, the subtle detailing given to Jolly's wife (though she doesnt have much to do), the Kashmir politics, fake encounters etc deserves praise. Kamal Jeet's visuals were fine along with the art direction. But the music was mediocre while Chandrashekhar's editing could have been sharper.

It must have been Akki's movie, but the one that actually steals the show is Saurabh Shukla who was brilliant as the Judge. Akshay was fantastic & essays the protagonist convincingly making sure that the character is grounded without a starry air to it. Annu Kapoor is also in fine form while Kumud Mishra didnt have much scope to perform. The same applies to the female leads as well such as Huma Qureshi & Sayani Gupta.

Verdict: It was completed in just over a month which is quite unheard of as far as Bollywood movies of superstars are concerned. Since it was made on a budget of just 30 C, it should make bumper returns & the initial box office reports also seems to be pointing towards that. It might not be exactly top notch but inspite of that it has adequate substance to entertain the audience. In short, check it out!!!

Rating; 2.75/5
