    Rating:  ***

    Subhash Kapoor’s ‘Jolly LLB’ has its heart in place; the plot execution is not flawless but a relevant subject matter makes it worth a watch.

    Jagdish Tyagi (Arshad Warsi), struggling lawyer from Meerut, decides to move to Delhi to make it big. Once in Delhi, he decides to re-open a high-profile hit-and-run case, hoping that the case will give his career the mileage it needs.  The defense counsel on the case is the very famous and prominent lawyer Advocate Tejender Rajpal (Boman Irani). Power and money ensure that the rich have gone scot-free and there is no justice for the six pavement dwellers who have lost their lives. Not only have the eye witnesses gone missing, even the car involved in the case is nowhere to be found.

    Jolly is initially hesitant to take on the case and ready to take a bribe and withdraw his PIL (Public Interest Litigation). A dose on morality from his girlfriend (Amrita Rao)

    Get spooked by 'Aatma'
    The photographers have been nagging her for quite a while, so our dusky Bengali beauty quickly darts down to the poolside to please the shutterbugs. She is back soon to finish the interview but not before she has obliged a fan or two eagerly waiting in the lobby to get a picture with her. She settles down to talk about her forthcoming release 'Aatma' and the bond she developed with little Doel. Excerpts from the interview:

    Was it a deliberate decision to do two back-to-back horror films?

    There was no thought in place, but I would have been very foolish not to do these films. Both films are very entertaining and are sure-shot winners. Not only were the scripts entertaining for the audience, but my characters were also very well-written. You don't always get such good roles written out for women in Hindi films.

    The genre does not matter, as long as the film is strong, it's commercial and I am getting to do something that is exciting for me.

    Do you believe in ghosts at all?

    I am scared of

    Direction: Tigmanshu Dhulia

    Rating: ****1/2

    Tigmanshu Dhulia had said in a pre-release interview that ‘Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns’ is more “opulent and intriguing” than its prequel and he has lived up to his claim. Dhulia weaves a complex tale of love, jealousy and revenge and the taut narrative ensures that it keeps the viewer engaged throughout.

    The sequel begins exactly where the first part had ended; Saheb Aditya Pratap Singh (Jimmy Shergill) is wheelchair ridden after he was shot in the last part and Biwi Madhavi Devi is now a MLA but seems to be heading down a path of self-destruction. Enter Gangster Indarjeet Singh (Irrfan Khan) who is looking to settle longstanding scores with the Saheb and is plotting revenge against him. Indarjeet and Princess Ranjana (Soha Ali Khan) are deeply committed to each other but Saheb also has his heart set on the young princess.

    It’s an intricate plot but Dhulia never loses the
