Jolly LLB ends up as an attempt to alternate between comedy and drama, handling neither one incompetently, but also not excelling at either while the performances of

The climax is the major highlight which underlines the seriousness.
Jolly LLB initially gives an impression that a cinematic critique of the legal system will stand up in this comedy which will have its point of view but alas somehow

decent entertainer thanks to its climax which saves the film. Looking for some massage of funny bones in a courtroom go for it.
