Movie - Jolly LLB
*ing - Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani, Saurabh Shukla, Amrita Rao
Language - Hindi
How a small time lawyer tries to become big through a PIL and then gets sucked into a fight with the big and powerful.
The all-round acting. And its not just the leads, its the support cast which makes the film work. You get lots of memorable characters, the judge, the canteen owner, the bodyguard constable, the "auctioneering" hawaldar.
Jolly LLB tries to avoid going into the typical filmy court-room battle and presents a more realistic description of the court proceedings
A practical ending where further proceedings are to take place but are not shown. Could be an opening for a sequel.
What could have been dropped from the film? The heroine and the needless romantic songs.
You wonder just how much corruption is there in our system. Even the main characters have to resort to bribery to get the evidence out.
The legal system seems to have an in-built delay mechanism leading to the justice getting lost in the red tape and paperwork.
Well I can outrage on and on about all this but thats the perview of another blog post.
All films related to the law tend to be benchmarked against "A Few Good Men". Does it go to the level of A Few Good Men? No, but it does attempt and does a good job of trying.
Rating - 7/10, Good overall watch
