Jolly L.L.B (2013) - Has its heart in the right place

Jolly LLB's trailer was catchy enough to get you to the theaters. The story has meat but the presentation could have been so much better. Unlike most Bollywood films which lose steam after the first half, this one only picks pace in the second half. But it's one of those films you want to root for, for the reason that it's made with a heart.
Subhash Kapoor manages to pull off a court room drama which is hilarious and realistic at the same time. Saurabh Shukla is his usual entertaining self with the most unforgettable of all roles and punchiest of dialogues. Arshad Warsi boldly plays his part and unsurprisingly impresses as the snarky, loud-mouthed Meerut ka launda. Boman Irani does his bit with equal conviction. Amrita Rao doesn't have much to do.

The songs seemed unnecessary and broke the pace (except the tiny winy mere toh...lag gaye ;) in the courtroom. Overall, it's time well spent but I'm sure a DVD watch would be as great!

Got something to share about the movie? I'm waiting to hear from you in the comments below.
