Best Indian Courtroom Dramas You Will Enjoy!
1. Jolly LLB 2 (Hindi)
One of Akshay Kumar’s best film so far, Jolly LLB 2 is a sequel to Arshad Warsi starter Jolly LLB. The film starts off as a humorous courtroom entertainer and concludes as a serious thought-provoking drama. It takes a serious toll on extrajudicial killings and culprit framing. The best part of the movie is the scenes with Saurabh Shukla as a lazy judge who is waiting to get done with his job. He adds to the much-needed humor in the film.
2. Melvilasam (Malayalam)
Melvilasam is a movie that stars Suresh Gopi as a defender to the accused who is charged for shooting his superiors in a fit of rage. There are eyewitnesses to the event who are clueless as to what led him to indulge in this action. As the reason for this anger which leads to the shooting is revealed in the end, we are left teary-eyed and numb. No songs, no leading ladies, the film is complete in its content.
3. Pink (Hindi)
This is one of the finest films ever made. With intriguing and thrilling court procedures, Pink explains and defines to us the meaning of consent of a woman before touching her. It becomes more relevant and interesting when a male lawyer takes up the duty to do so. No one better than Amitabh Bacchan could do imagined for this role. The three women in the movie have a wonderful job conveying us their helplessness and innocence. The chills we get during the final judgment is the success of the film.
4. Oh My God (Hindi)
A man goes to court to fight his case against God; this is the plot of Oh My God and as interpreted is a really funny and thought-provoking film. Paresh Rawal plays Kanjilal Mehta who has lost his shop in an unexpected earthquake and is denied his insurance claim as it was an Act of God. Resolute to get his insurance money, Kanjilal summons every messenger of god to the court to return him his money. With its refreshing content, the film is worth a watch and questions on our symbolizing of God.
5. Mulk (Hindi)
Islamophobia is a not-so-discussed topic in our country. In spite of being a diverse country that accommodates the myriads of religions and cultures, our attitude towards the Muslim community has always been that of suspicion. Mulk is an audacious film that discusses not just Islamophobia but also terrorism. Tapsee Pannu and Rishi Kapoor are brilliant in their roles. Mulk is a film that we should watch at least once in our life.
6. Ponmagal Vandal (Tamil , 2020)
