Jagdish Tyagi aka Jolly (Arshad Warsi) is a lawyer from Meerut who moves to Delhi to improve his practice, finds that he isn’t getting any better at attracting clients and takes the public-interest litigation (PIL) route to instant fame. Jolly forces the reopening of a hit-and-run case involving a rich young man, his Land Cruiser, and a bunch of poor men sleeping on a Delhi pavement (shades of the Sanjeev Nanda case from 1999). Jolly’s motives in forcing a retrial are initially suspect, but his girlfriend Sandhya (Amrita Rao) stirs him to nobility. For a 131-minute movie that is about the power of argument, Jolly LLB is bereft of debate or subtlety. It’s what they call an open-and-shut case.

Jolly LLB released in theatres on Friday.
