Jolly LLB is a feel-good satire in the best sense of the term. Despite the uneven writing, Jolly LLB works because it has heart. Make time for it this weekend.

Its heart unquestionably in the right place, 'Jolly LLB' is very watchable, even if it does paint in broad strokes. Not a bad way to spend an evening.

Jolly LLB is funny in parts but preachiness and the need to flaunt the film’s sincerity and heart get in the way.

Film is stodgy and predictable. Warsi never really lifts off the screen despite his playing the poor-but-ultimately-good-man to the hilt (with the exception of a speech or two). Neither does Irani, even though he looks the part. Rao, who plays Warsi's love-interest, is superfluous to the proceedings. The only one who lifts the film and makes it worth our while is Shukla, who has got himself a role worthy of his talent after a long time.
Critic Score: 2/5

Jolly LLB works because of its bigger point - decency is for all and worth fighting for. Using bittersweet satire and plot twirls, the film shows corruption even used against the corrupt. Despite that weaker first half, this truly becomes a Jolly good show.
Critic Score: 3.5/5

JOLLY LLB is a power-packed courtroom drama. But, most importantly, it celebrates the spirit of the common man seeking justice and impartiality most effectively. Just don't miss this jolly good film!

Jolly LLB has its heart in the right place. And it’s a heart that is backed by a ticking mind and a responsive conscience.

Who says only superstars can draw crowd to the theatres? ‘Jolly LLB’ will prove the conventional notion wrong.

Subhash Kapoor’s ‘Jolly LLB’ has its heart in place; the plot execution is not flawless but a relevant subject matter makes it worth a watch. The film is a fun watch if you are willing to overlook its minor indulgences and the slow pace of the first half.
Critic Score: 3/5

Jolly LLB impresses for the way it avoids all frills while giving you an enjoyable watch. The film is great endorsement for new-age mainstream, along with Kai Po Che, Special 26 and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster so far this year.
Critic Score: 3.5/5
