Jolly LLB 2 Stills
Akshay Kumar-Huma Qureshi starrer ‘Jolly LLB 2’ trailer is out. The film that revolves around the life of a small-time lawyer trying to make his mark in the big, bad world, has Akshay as a blunt, abrasive and yet oddly compassionate lawyer Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly. The 2-minute-37 second long trailer starts with a scene that depicts Jolly’s lack of seriousness towards his job. He is seen asking a witness, “Kya aap bata sakte hain ki Salman Khan ki shaadi kab hogi?” It gradually moves on to establish the character of Jolly as a lawyer with no scruples, one who only aspires to earn big bucks. However, Jolly undergoes a transformation of sorts when he is faced with an all-important case.The trailer that stars on a humorous note leaves behind a serious undertone towards the end.
Jolly LLB proved to be the flagbearer of this genre, at least in recent times. The scenes of Arshad in court with his crisp dialogues dipped with cutting-edge humour were unforgettable, with Boman Irani as the lawyer of another party supporting him in the cast. Audiences followed their arguments as if it was happening in real. This magical tone seems missing from the Jolly LLB 2 trailer. While it may be too early to dismiss the authenticity but the scene in which Akshay Kumar slaps the high-profile lawyer played by Annu Kapoor in the middle of the court is pure blasphemy. Or, it is another classic case of depicting the star power of Akshay Kumar. The comparison began when Akshay Kumar replaced Arshad Warsi.
But the latter may beat the established Akshay Kumar by miles when it comes to pure acting. The star power of Akshay Kumar may set cash registers ringing at the box office for Jolly LLB 2, but the actor Arshad Warsi is a definite heavyweight in the role of Jolly. Akshay Kumar looks forced and unreal – be it enacting emotional scenes to his comic timing to concluding with a hard-hitting, soul-stirring monologue. As a matter of fact, his portrayal of Jolly will remind you of his famous roles from Rowdy Rathore, Khatta Meetha, and Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty. A plea to the producers – stop choosing business over talent!
The star of the story is, of course, Akshay who leaves you cracking with his one-liners and handles the serious scenes with equal adroitness. The second instalment of the hit franchise has been directed by Subhash Kapoor and stars Huma Qureshi, Annu Kapoor, Manav Kaul and Saurabh Shukla in pivotal roles. The film hits theatres on February 10, 2017.
