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.

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…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…

Gorakhpur Tragedy

Gorakhpur Tragedy
Amid increase crime report in UP where after swearing in of Yogi Adityanath as chief minister cases of murders, kidnapping, dacoities, rape, etc has increased many folds the fresh news came of the negligence in government hospital. At least 60 children have died over five days at the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital in Gorakhpur.  The deaths are being blamed on infections and possible disruption of oxygen supply in the pediatric ward. 


The administration has rejected the claims of shortage of Oxygen as reason for deaths but the increase supply of Oxygen cylinders in the morning after the news broke out indicating otherwise. Isn’t it the negligence of the government hospital administration, health minister and Chief minister? Incidentally Gorakhpur was Yogi Adityanath’s Lok Sabha constituency. No compensation can fill the void of death of innocent children but there must be a time bound probe of the reasons behind the death and culprits must be puni…
