Jolly (Akshay Kumar) is a lawyer working as an assistant to a leading criminal advocate, and is struggling for a break; in a desperate moment for money, he cheats a lady resulting in her suicide. With such a negative baggage on the shoulder of a Bollywood hero, the Director Subhash Kapoor succeeds in moving the story and even recovering the hero’s image. That’s the plus in the film.
A senior officer in UP Police and his team kill an innocent Muslim in a fake encounter. The sad part being they get promoted for this act after they doing a good job of hiding it under the guise of anti-terrorist activity. They also get a bribe from the real terrorist. The story is how Jolly investigates this case and brings to justice the culprits while fighting both the police and the courts. With such a premise if you are expecting any intellectual courtroom arguments or action sequences on the ground, you will be disappointed. The film is mostly courtroom drama with boat loads of dialogue.
