Trailer: Akshay Kumar is back to tickle the ribs with ‘Jolly LLB 2’

The trailer of ‘Jolly LLB 2’ starring Akshay Kumar and Anu Kapoor released on Monday, December 19. The film is the sequel to the 2013 National Award winning courtroom comedy-satire ‘Jolly LLB’ that starred Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani.

Akshay plays the role of a Lucknow-based small-time lawyer Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly, who wants to make it big in the profession. Huma Qureshi is cast opposite him as Pushpa Pandey. Anu Kapoor plays a senior lawyer Mr. Mathur with an “experience of 20 years,” while Saurab Shukla reprises his role as the judge.

The two-and-half-minute trailer begins with Akshay’s moustachioed character questioning his witness whether he can answer when Salman Khan will get married. His character Jolly is described as a “schemer and dreamer,” and the first part of the trailer is filled with his witty one-liners and goofy acts. At one point, he is seen slapping the opposition lawyer inside a filled court room and is reprimanded by the judge.

The second part of the trailer takes a serious turn when a person is killed and a lady turns up to Jolly challenging him if he can provide justice to her. Jolly undergoes a transformation from his care-free self to fighting for justice, and in the process also gets shot by bullets. 

As per the trailer, the film’s story is inspired by true events. Akshay has proved his comic skills in his films like ‘Housefull’ series, ‘Singh Is Bling’ and others, and once again, he makes the audience laugh with his gimmicks.

‘Jolly LLB 2’ has been directed by Subhash Kapoor, who had also helmed by first part of the film. The sequel is slated to hit screens on February 10, 2017.
