Anupama Chopra's review: Jolly LLB

By Hindustan Times

Direction: Subhash Kapoor
Actors: Boman Irani, Arshad Warsi, Saurabh Shukla
Rating: ***

Jolly LLB is a feel-good satire in the best sense of the term. It tells the story of a small-time lawyer, Jagdish Tyagi, better known as Jolly (Arshad Warsi), who dreams of becoming a star litigator.

He moves from Meerut to Delhi chasing this dream and becomes embroiled in a high-profile hit-and-run case where he finds himself up against one of the country's biggest lawyers, Rajpal (Boman Irani).

But Jolly refuses to be intimidated. Instead, he finds his inner hero and proves that, even in the Kafkaesque Indian courts, there is justice.

We know that reality is far more sordid and entangled than this, which is why it is so satisfying to see Jolly succeed on celluloid.
