Genre: Drama
Release Date:15-03-2013


The script isn’t a very elaborate one, but surely leaves room for a brilliant screenplay to flow. Picking up largely from reality, the story brings forward the loopholes of the entire justice system of India, which at its core is flawed. Every character is created in a non preachy way, but intends to point out their hapless victimization at the hands of law.

Characters like Kaul Sa’ab, the canteen owner who couldn’t get justice for his daughter, raped and murdered or the scene where the judge talks about the number of pending cases in court; one is forced to realize that speedy justice is a myth in this country.However, the evident humor of the story lingers on. I particularly like the scene where a police constable auctions postings. The story anchors on reality and it won’t be wrong to say reality in India is in a very sorry state. Despite a very slim plot, a loaded screenplay does the magic for this film.


It is a sheer delight to watch Boman Irani and Arshad Warsi antagonistically pitted against each other. They simply carry forward the film, most effortlessly. Arshad exhibits many shades of humor, nervousness as well as confidence and frustration immensely well

Boman Irani will somehow manage to strike you more. He is classily manipulative, shows arrogance in the most stellar way and even when his character is most shaky given the circumstances, this man brings alive on screen most flawlessly the psyche of a towering legal giant.

The judge who-knows-it-all, Saurabh Shukla plays his part naturally, with so much ease. It is the perfect choice of actors, which makes this film strong!

Amrita Rao could have been avoided in the film altogether. Though she is immensely pleasant, she and her role have nothing to contribute in the film.

Technical Departments:

Subhash Kapoor is an ace director. Keeping the narrative simple, he maintains the film’s rhythm grounded in the satirical humor of the story. His critiquing is honest and strongly borrows from a general pathos towards our judiciary and portrays it garbed in humor. Jolly LLB though a light hearted film will evoke concern for the state of affairs in our country, corruption et al.

The screenplay is fabulously done. Everyone in the film has well etched out parts. It harnesses well Boman and Arshad’s on screen chemistry. Kapoor lets the screenplay flow well, without adding any airs; the film turns out quite well on that.

However, I sincerely wish, the makers had omitted the almost weird music bit of the film. Seriously, what was that!


Directed by Subhash Kapoor, Jolly LLB is one of the most realistic films depicting the courtroom session. Considering that comic veteran Boman Irani and Arshad Warsi are the lead stars, one would expect a comic caper that would make you giggle uncontrollably throughout the film.

However, that’s not the case! Jolly LLB is actually a serious film with plenty of comic, witty and satirical dialogues and situations that seems ‘straight out of life’. And to do justice to the script, Boman Irani and Arshad Warsi have left no stones unturned by their brilliant performance. ‘Appeal’ spelled as ‘apple’ and Jolly telling Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists that he’s Maskhar-e-Taiba is all presented in a very comic fashion.

The courtroom scenes between Jolly (Arshad Warsi) and Rajpal (Boman Irani) and shots between Rajpal and judge Tripathi (Saurabh Shukla) makes you burst out with laughter, and also at the same time depicts the sad plight of our government institutions and highlights the challenges and struggles that a common man have to face on a regular basis. Extending not more than 2 hours and 10 minutes, Jolly LLB gives a very clear picture of the ‘real courtroom’ in the country and this is perhaps the first time that any filmmaker has presented the courtroom as it is!

Final Word: Overall Jolly LLB is a witty satire on the corruptible legal space of India. Craftily made, the film makes for a good humorous, thought evoking watch! Go for it, you will leave the courtroom satisfied
