Akshay Kumar’s much anticipated courtroom entertainer Jolly LL.B 2 is out in cinemas today and has won hearts of fans, audience and critics alike.

 With strong performances throughout the film and Akshay Kumar playing the character of a lawyer for the first time he emerges triumphant on screen.

 Set against the backdrop of the erstwhile city of the Royals, Jolly LL.B 2 is a satire about an underdog – Advocate Jolly (Akshay Kumar) attempting to catapult himself to the top of the legal food chain. Anarchy, mayhem and underhandedness, all expressed through wit and a vein of humour, form the cornerstones of this courtroom tale.

 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.

 Here’s what some of the media have been saying about the film:

 The Times of India, Meena Iyer gave Jolly LL.B 2 4/5 stars. Akshay truly raises the `bar’ with jolly llb 2”
