Jolly LLB 2 makes a case for why Bollywood should embrace songless films

Jolly LLB 2.

Picture this: a lawyer needs money to pay for an office space. He decides to con an unsuspecting pregnant woman into paying him that money. He is a nice guy so he plans to return that money eventually. But before he could, the pregnant woman realises she’s been cheated and confronts him publicly. The lawyer loses face not just in front of his neighbours, friends, wife but also his father.

Somewhere in between these emotionally charged scenes, the lawyer and his wife boogie to a techno Holi song. Subhash Kapoor has force-fitted three songs in the first hour of Jolly LLB 2.
