Jolly LLB 2: Trailer Review

By Sarvesh Joshi

In a recent episode of Koffee with Karan, Aamir Khan told that he wants to learn how Akshay Kumar makes so much money. Though he said it in jest, the truth is Akshay Kumar has much more releases in a year in comparison to his contemporaries. He delivered back to back hits like Airlift, Housefull3, Rustom in the year 2016.He is one actor who can be truly termed as versatile owing to the variety of roles which he does. He is equally good in serious as well as comic roles. But the trailer of Jolly LLB2 displays both sides of his acting. As the trailer shows that he is playing the role of a lawyer who will fight against all odds to win the case. We can see the see the comic side of Khiladi Kumar in this trailer as well. Huma Qureshi who has displayed her acting prowess in the past is paired opposite to Akshay Kumar.

At the starting of the trailer we can clearly see non-seriousness of Jolly (Akshay Kumar) towards his job. He asks one of the witnesses,” Kya aap bata sakte hain ki Salman Khan ki shaadi kab hogi?’’ We also witness that his sole purpose is to earn lots of money through his profession and he dreams of being an extremely successful lawyer one day. Huma Qureshi plays his love interest Pushpa. There is a scene in which Jolly(Akshay) slaps his opposing counsel Mathur (Annu Kapoor) when he is provoked by the latter. We can also see Saurabh Shukla reprising his role of a judge. The transformation from a non-serious approach to an extremely focused lawyer played by Akshay Kumar is clearly visible from the trailer. There is a scene is which Jolly(Akshay) is shot and this scene definitely arouses curiosity in our mind that will Jolly survive in the end. There are some typical one-liners in the trailer which catch our attention. At the end of the trailer we see a dialogue which goes like,”kisi jaahil ne kaha tha pyaar aur jung mein sab kuch jayaz hai.Agar aisa hai to ladkiyon pe acid fekne wala aashiq bhi jayaz hai aur border pe sipahiyon ke sar kaatne waale bhi jayaz hain.”The clash between Jolly(Akshay) and Mathur(Annu Kapoor) reminds us of the clashes between onscreen characters played by Boman Irani and Arshad Warsi in the prequel of the movie. The supporting act by Saurabh Shukla is really worth watching.

 JollyLLB2 is quite promising like its prequel Jolly LLB, which went on to win several awards including a National Award. The prequel was not just popular amongst critics but also achieved commercial success despite being a low budget movie. The movie carries a burden of expectations owing to the astounding success of Jolly LLB. There are hardly any songs in the background which clearly shows that movie is likely to have a fast-paced storyline. Having a bankable actor like Akshay Kumar, this movie is expected to mint a lot of money at the box-office. It is clearly visible that despite being a courtroom drama, the new star cast adds a new flavor to the movie altogether. Slated for a February10,2017 release, this movie is definitely worth watching as the trailer arouses a lot of interest in the minds of the viewers.
