    I’m really happy for Saurabh shukla’s national award for JOLLY LLB.

    Jolly LLB is a complete film in the sense of well written script, direction, performance.

    The best thing I loved about the film is characters ARC and characters development. Leave alone the protagonist, or antagonist but all the characters even small one like the security hawaldar go with the arc and development.

    And best arcs and character development are with protagonist and Saurabh Shukla. These two characters have conflict, somany decisive moments and developing along with it.

    Kallu Mama is back 🙂

    It would be good to know whether these ppl had complete ready script or directord developed the characters on set or actors developed the characters through freedom given by director himself. Whatever it is I’d like to give Bronwy points to director, script writer.

    Hope to see interviews with all these directors and actors to understand how they developed the story and characters ARC.
