New Delhi: Arshad Warsi's 'Jolly LLB' is a relevant film for present times. The film which talks about the flawed judiciary that exists in the country and how witness protection can change the course of a case, makes the viewer think.
Being a former journalist and interacting with lawyers from close quarters probably helped director Subhash Kapoor give the film a realistic approach. A social satire- the film has some hilarious one liners courtesy the director himself which makes you smile and think.
Here are our top 15 favourite lines from 'Jolly LLB':
