About twenty minutes or so into Subhash Kapoors Jolly LLB, leading man Arshad Warsi [ Images ] who plays the titular lawyer is told that hes graduated to authentic legal status, and will thus be addressed by his surname, Tyagi. In other words, jolly no more. Click! The film here decides to start playing it straight, which is significantly disappointing given the quirks tossed around all over the opening sequences. That effortlessly hilarious actor Brijendra Kala sits behind a deliciously intriguing notice-board declaring him to be Advocate. Astrologer. President. but vanishes once the film forsakes comedy for drama. As does the gruff judge who texts her lover using the word jaanu. ...Read full review
So, Jolly LLB isn`t a comedy - despite jokes about `appeal` spelled as `apple` and Jolly telling Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists he`s Maskhar-e-Taiba, Jolly LLB is a serious movie, showcasing the arrogance of the rich, the helplessness of the poor and the corruption of the law.

An eye-witness appears - Jolly files a PIL. What happens when Rajpal replies using cash? ...Read full review
Well-intentioned but inconsistent, Jolly LLB, directed by Subhash Kapoor, blends elements of a satire, a thriller, and a courtroom procedural in this intriguing story inspired by the events of the Sanjeev Nanda hit-and-run case of 1999.

But he adopts an over-simplistic approach to the material that is often in conflict with this otherwise promising film. Its heart unquestionably in the right place, Jolly LLB is very watchable, even if it does paint in broad strokes. Im going with two-and-a-half out of five. Not a bad way to spend an evening. ...Read full review
