Jolly LLB Reviews

5

Its heart unquestionably in the right place, 'Jolly LLB' is very watchable, even if it does paint in broad strokes. I'm going with two-and-a-half out of five. Not a bad way to spend an evening.

The only one who lifts the film and makes it worth our while is Shukla, who has got himself a role worthy of his talent after a long time.

Jolly LLB is funny in parts but preachiness and the need to flaunt the film’s sincerity and heart get in the way

Despite the uneven writing, Jolly LLB works because it has heart. Make time for it this weekend.

Barring the off-kilter musical score, which is completely out of sync with the predominantly naturalistic drift of the film, Jolly LLB is a jolly good film.

Jolly LLB works because of its bigger point - decency is for all and worth fighting for. Using bittersweet satire and plot twirls, the film shows corruption even used against the corrupt. Despite that weaker first half, this truly becomes a Jolly good show.

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!

On the whole, JOLLY LLB is a power-packed courtroom drama. But, most importantly, it celebrates the spirit of the common man seeking justice and impartiality most effectively. Just don't miss this jolly good film!

JOLLY LLB for Oscars may seem far-fetched within the industry big-wigs who prefer big names with far poorer content (EKLAVYA, BARFI!). But if this movie is favored, believe me; our judicial system will be fast-tracked and feared like in the west.

    Jolly good!!

    An imperfect sattire but has its heart in right place for most of the time. There are lot of outstanding moments that makes it a winner. You can't complain anyways about the acting abilities of Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani but here show-stealer is Saurabh Shukla who never misses a beat as judge whom people misunderstand for fool. Songs and heroine were not required at all. Over-all Subhash Kapoor's second outing after Phas Gaye Re Obama is a hot little cracker.
