Petition In Bombay HC Against Jolly LLB 2, Says Indian Judiciary Projected In A Derogatory Manner

An advocate has filed a writ petition before the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court seeking certain alterations in the movie Jolly LLB 2. The petitioner Ajay Kumar Waghmare has alleged that from “whatever is shown in trailers of the film that have been released on television and social media” it(the movie) is nothing but an “attempt to project the Indian Judiciary and the Indian legal system in a derogatory manner.”

The petitioner advocate without being specific, has sought removal of some scenes in the movie which are an attempt to malign the reputation of the judges who “dispense justice as a sacred duty”. A contempt notice is also sought to be issued to the makers of the film on account of “derogative insult and attempt to tarnish the image and reputation of Indian Judiciary and the Legal profession.”

A similar petition was filed against the first part of the film, Jolly LLB in 2013 by lawyers from Meerut. The Supreme Court while dismissing the petition had said– “Don’t watch Jolly LLB if it offends you.”

On the fictitious nature of films, Justice RM Lodha who was then heading the bench had observed-  “These things happen in movies. They show Bombay High Court’s door and gate and then show something else happening inside. These are all fictitious things.”

The petition also seeks a stay on any further release of content related to the film on social media or elsewhere until the matter is disposed of. The computer-generated date for this particular matter to be listed is January 27.

    • D. S. Chauhan advocate at Supreme Court says:

      Whenever a settlement is reached and filed before court, the court while accepting the same records undertaking of parties that they would abide by the terms thereof. If one of the parties backs out, it amounts to breach of undertaking and as in this case contempt of Supreme Court. Therefore file contempt petition in Supreme Court.
