Jolly LLB 2 released on the scheduled date after the makers accepted four cuts that were suggested by the Bombay High Court. Jolly LLB 2 is a satirical take on the Indian judiciary and a three-member committee of experts were appointed to investigate an allegation that some scenes in film are "defamatory to the lawyers' profession and would be contempt of court."
Arshad Warsi played the role of the protagonist in 2013's Jolly LLB while Akshay Kumar has replaced him in the sequel as Jagdish, a lawyer who is based in Lucknow. Huma Qureshi plays the role of Jagdish's wife in the film. Jolly LLB 2 also stars Annu Kapoor and Sayani Gupta while Saurabh Shukla reprises his role from the original 2013 film.
In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee writes: "If all this sounds too solemn for a mass entertainer, do not be put off. Jolly LLB 2 does well not to take itself too seriously. It has the feel of a good-natured banter between friends rather than that of an inflated inquest conducted from a pedestal. Scintillating? No. Enjoyable? Absolutely."
Akshay Kumar will next be seen in Naam Shabana. He also has Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and 2.0 in the pipeline.
