Meet the Jolly good cast of Jolly LL.B2 – Watch behind the scenes footage, out on Feb 10th!
Inspired by true events, the absorbing trailer showcases a gamut of emotions from comedy to drama to thrill, giving audiences a glimpse of anarchy, mayhem and underhandedness in a courtroom setting.
Akshay Kumar is seen buttressing his legal arguments with rhetoric’s necessary to establish his case, many of which will become signature dialogues. In a courtroom scene where in his portrayal of Advocate Jolly, Akshay Kumar is in the course of an argument with veteran actor Annu Kapoor who plays the role of the ruthless Advocate Mathur.
In Akshay Kumar’s inimitable style, he raises the ante for tongue in cheek humour as he poses a frivolous question pertaining to one of Bollywood’s top stars, Salman Khan, and whether he will ever get married, leading to a courtroom in chuckles. However on the other hand, Saurabh Shukla, who reprises the role of Justice Surendralal Tripathi, grins in irritation.
Through the glimpses that we see in the trailer, it’s evident that Jolly is a lawyer with no scruples and that he will go to any level to win a case, affirming that “A good lawyer never returns the fee”. Audiences get a glimpse of Advocate Jolly’s underdog persona, as he attempts to catapult himself to the top of the legal food chain. However he seems to go to an extreme when he takes on an infamous case and wins, as a result freeing a criminal who committed a much bigger crime. This leaves Jolly in a quandary and the rest of the film’s plot revolves around Jolly’s struggle to find justice as he undergoes a moral transformation of sorts to set things on the right path.
Akshay Kumar is clearly leading the charge in the second instalment through the character of Advocate Jolly – right from his unforgettable appearance where he sports a thick moustache with well-oiled side parted hair, to his exceptional comic timing which has become second nature to him, he steps into the character with aplomb to deliver a role which many are saying will further cement his position as India’s most versatile artist.
The trailer also introduces the leading lady of the film Huma Qureshi, who plays the role of Jolly’s love interest.
