When you know that the director of a film has been roped in to take the Munnabhai series forward, he has to be worthy to be Raj Kumar Hirani's successor. Does Subhash Kapoor do justice to the trailers? Absolutely, Jolly LLB is a jolly good ride, which isnt as funny as I thought but a good film nonetheless.
Arshad is a small town lawyer from Meerut. He leaves his love, Amrita, back home & heads to Delhi to make it large. There he finds an open & shut case which the hugely popular lawyer Boman Irani has won. The case, akin to the Allistair Perreira hit-and-run case, is reopened with some startling facts researched by Arshad. But little does he know of the giant he is up against. Does he win the case, will the poor get justice, watch & find out.
At 2 hrs , the film is perfectly timed & if not for the ill-fitting songs, it would have been a tad bit better. The comedy comes in small doses but is not the star feature of this flick. The homerun is scored in the emotional moments & feel-good cinema at its best.
Boman Irani is the show stealer with a thumping potrayal of the wily lawyer. Arshad supports well & the true star of the film is the lesser known actor who plays his security guard.
Director Subhash Kapoor is clearly a guy with soul & seems all set to excel in the Munnabhai series. A winner this one.
All in all, a good film, that could have been brilliant, but one that all should watch. Performances galore as this one seems like a good choice in a crowded week.
