Movie Review : Jolly LLB 2

Movie Review : Jolly LLB 2

Jolly LLB 2 is the sequel to the 2013 film Jolly LLB starring Arshad Warsi also directed by Subhash Kapoor who has directed this film also. It stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role of Jolly supported by Huma Qureshi, Annu Kapoor and Saurabh Shukla in crucial roles. This is a satire on Indian Judicial system which highlights how the wickedness of lawyers in manipulating the evidences and the witnesses which denied justice to many people. The film is on a larger scale than the first one with Akshay Kumar in it. 



Music: Music to me is not much effective neither have it helped in film's promotions. 'Go Pagal' is a fun song which is difficult to hear in loops similar is the case with 'Jolly Good Fellow'. The Qawwali 'O Re Rangreza' and romantic song 'Bawara Mann' are melodious but they too are not catchy enough to hold with the listeners. 

Marketing: Akshay Kumar like Shahrukh Khan is a star good in marketing his movies. He never misses shows and events to create the buzz about his films. Viewers are waiting for the movie since he first announced it on Twitter. 

Plot: Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly (Akshay Kumar) is an struggling lawyer working under a reputed senior lawyer of Lucknow. He lives with his wife Pushpa Pandey (Huma Qureshi) and a son. He has intention to get his own chamber for private practice. One day he took money from a client rejected by his boss to buy lawyer chamber by bluffing her that his case was taken by the senior lawyer. When this client who was fighting for the justice of fake encounter of her husband knew about his cheating exposed him in front of his friends and family. She committed suicide after losing all hopes of getting justice. This shattered Jolly whose father disowned him after that incident. He pledged to fight for the justice and file a PIL against the police officer for fake encounter. The film ends with the courtroom battle between Jolly and famous Lucknow lawyer Sachin Kantilal Mathur (Annu Kapoor) with an historic decision by Justice Sunderlal Tripathi (Saurabh Shukla).

Review: Screenplay by Subhash Kapoor and dialogues creates moment in the film which ignites your emotions of laughter, anger and sympathy in a way that not let you leave even the single scene of the movie. Akshay Kumar performed well in his role supported by Huma Qureshi. Saurabh Shukla walked one step higher in his role as Justice Tripathi. Annu Kapoor as a cunning lawyer gives justice to his role. Unnecessary scene of Justice Tripathi's daughter's wedding looked inappropriate to me. Climax is also stretched to create more drama. Overall after a long time a film has come in which story and screenplay weighs more than the star power. 

Verdict: This film is a family entertainer you must watch this weekend or any day you have time. 

Rating: I would give this film 4/5.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
