Jolly LLB 2 is a story of a struggling small-town lawyer, Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly, who takes on a murder case and finds himself in the center of an elaborate police cover-up. Akshay plays a lawyer who is corrupt and is only looking for ways to make quick money.
However, eventually he tumbles upon a case that threatens his mere existence and that’s where the story begins. Will he stand up for justice or will he bow down to the many bullies who are ready to pull the trigger the minute he decides to set out for justice? For this you will need to visit theatre near you.
Akshay Kumar shoulders the drama, the performances of the defense lawyer played by Annu Kapoor and the judge (Saurabh Shukla) are equally terrific. While Saurabh Shukla adds the fun bit, yet in a humourous way inside a court-room, Annu Kapoor’s facial expressions are hard to miss.
Huma Qureshi makes for a lovely on-screen pair opposite Akshay Kumar. Her unassuming acting skills, in a way, compliment the pace of Lucknow where the majority of the film is set against.
The film's music has been received well. 'Bawra Mann' song, sung by Jubin Nautiyal and Neeti Mohan is one soulful track which is perfectly timed in the film.
It has come out better than the first Jolly LL.B with Akshay Kumar’s earnest performance.
