Trivia

Later when Ahmed watched Jolly LLB he felt it would be a suitable film for an actor like Udhayanidhi Stalin. So when they decided to buy the remake rights of that film Ahmed felt it needed certain changes in order to suit the taste of the regional audience. He felt there were some loop holes in the plot and he wanted to fill all that in the remake. He felt that the original film was a very intense court room drama and wanted to add a few more elements to it so that it would appeal to the masses. See more »

A good entertainer for all.
14 June 2016 | by lk-kishore6See all my reviews

This is essentially a well made remake of the original Hindi version of Jolly LLB. This movie has been very well made to suit well for the Tamil audience better and appeal to mass crowd. Nevertheless it also manages to scrape of good marks in terms of being a good film.

The core story is closely based on a real life incident - " 1999 Delhi Hit and Run Case " involving a person named Sanjeev Nanda, son a rich Industrialist Suresh Nanda ran over and killing many.

The story has slightly been modified and has been made into a fine script to suit the silver screen.

The performances of Radha Ravi as the Judge and Prakash Raj as the Lawyer are simply brilliant. Udhayanidhi has made a good attempt to perform, but he requires a to put a lot more efforts. Hansika looks beautiful in this movie, providing the moral support needed for the protagonist but other than that she merely remains a set property like most heroines do inn commercial cinema.

This is a definitely a cinema you can watch for some good entertainment.
