Subhash Kapoor's Jolly LLB 2 is the sequel of the 2013 satire Jolly LLB (also helmed by Kapoor), which featured Boman Irani and Arshad Warsi. While Akshay Kumar has stepped into Arshad's shoes, Saurabh Shukla reprises his character of the judge in the second installment. The film follows the life of a small-time blunt, abrasive yet oddly compassionate criminal-lawyer Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly (Akshay Kumar), who is trying to make a mark in the big, bad world. Jolly is, however, faced with a serious, all-important case against injustice and his opponent, Sachin Kantilal Mathur (Annu Kapoor), who is a corrupt lawyer.
The film is slated for a 10th February, 2017 release and here is what we look forward to:
How can one not expect terrific performances when a film has seasoned actors like Akshay Kumar, Annu Kapoor, and Saurabh Shukla? Especially when the main protagonist and the antagonist are seen locking horns in a battle of wits.
We all know that the Khiladi Kumar is a good actor. But he is also so much more. Besides being able to sport any look (in this case a thick moustache and well-oiled side-parted hair), he is also a great comedian. We see that in the opening scene of the first trailer in which his question pertaining to one of Bollywood’s biggest superstars, Salman Khan, has the entire courtroom in chuckles. We're sure humour is one of the highlights of this courtroom drama, just like its prequel.
The Huma-Akshay chemistry
Akshay Kumar has romanced many actresses on the screen. This time around, Akshay has been paired with Huma Qureshi. This marks their first outing as a couple, and Huma will be seen playing his wife. Of what we've seen in the song Bawara Mann, we know that they look good together.
A strong storyline
Jolly LLB 2 is supposedly based on a couple of true events, and what we gauge from the trailer is that the film intends to showcase a gamut of emotions from comedy to drama to tragedy. It has all the elements that make it a compelling watch. Here's hoping it has a powerful narrative.
