Subhash Kapoor's Jolly LLB 2 has got the fans going for a good courtroom drama. The sequel to the National Award nominated film has Akshay Kumar playing Jagdishwar Mishra, aka Jolly, trying to reveal secrets that might prove fatal to the high and mighty. 

While Subhash's film does have its comic moments, the latest trailer is quite the thrilling one. From its opening dialogue of '125 crore ki abaadi waale is mulk me sirf 21000 judges' to Annu Kapoor glowering while he says, "Pepsi aur Pramod apna formula nahi bataate," the trailer is packed with some fine lines. 

The sight of Kumar getting serious with the case, digging out files, and being chased by goons add to the allure of the film. The latest trailer also hints at a slight Kashmir angle to the entire case by Jolly LLB, which adds meaning to 'The State vs Jolly LLB' posters we have seen so far. Saurabh Shukla's hilarious turn as the judge trying to maintain order in a riotous courtroom adds some humour to a fairly dark trailer. 

However, there is no mistaking that this sequel is all about Kumar. The actor is all action as he takes his snooping skills as a lawyer seriously, and tries to unearth new evidence to help his case. Even when he is threatening a witness from turning hostile, Kumar adds a new dimension to the usually 'Jolly good' fellow in the previous trailers. The actor even tweeted about the trailer saying  'Standing up for what is right is not easy, but Jolly will not back down in front of the corrupt." 

Jolly LLB 2 is directed by Subhash, and stars Kumar, Huma Qureshi, Annu and Shukla. The film is set to release in theatres on 10 February.
