Director Subhash Kapoor started his Bollywood Career with an forgettable film ‘Salaam India‘. Later, He went ahead and made ‘Phas Gaye Re Obama‘ which was a Super Hit. Subhash Kapoor now strikes back with ‘Jolly LLB‘. All the three films have one thing in common, They are satire on the life of a common-man. I always knew Jolly LLB has some power, When I first heard the news of Subhash Kapoor being signed on to direct the famous Munnabhai franchise ‘Munnabhai 3‘.

Advocate Jagdish Tyagi (Arshad Warsi) who also goes by the nickname of Jolly is a law graduate with frustrated ambitions and unhappy with his life in Meerut (North-India). He wants to make it big in the field of law no matter what. He moves to Delhi. Using a shortcut method to achieve fame. He re-opens a high profile case and ends up taking on the biggest lawyer Advocate Rajpal (Boman Irani) in Delhi. What follows is a roller coaster ride of a man, his moralities, ambition and relationships. I will not reveal which case Jolly re-opens as that would ruin your movie watching taste.

As the Title hints, The film is mostly shot in court-room’s. But the film manages to strike the right chord about the fight of a common man against corrupt law system in India. The film has some very funny moments along with some ‘Spicy’ and ‘Volcanic’ lines spoken by Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani.

Arshad Warsi is just amazing as Jagdish Tyagi a.k.a Jolly. The actor is known for his comic timing but this movie is sure to make people realize that he’s equally fantastic as a Performer. Boman Irani once again set’s the screen on fire with his flair of killer acting. Saurabh Shukla is mind-blowing too. Frankly speaking, Jolly LLB works only for these three actors Big Time. Amrita Rao plays a school teacher from Meerut. It was really nice to see the actress after a long time. Though she had a limited scope in the film, But the actress made her presence felt big time. Rest of the cast Manoj Pahwa, Mohan Kapur and everyone acted well.

The writing and the direction of Subhash Kapoor is of A Class. He exactly knows what to extract from an actor and make him/her do their part with finesse. Subhash Kapoor as the writer is also a winner. He writes a difficult subject on a serious-note and adds humor to it with a Satirical Punch. The cinematography in the film is good, However the editing should have been little crispy, Especially in the first half. Musically, The film does not have any songs that will be remembered.

Jolly LLB is a cute power-house film that will not leave your brains, Even if you have left the auditorium. Jolly LLB is a must watch.
