In 2013, Arshad Warsi gave strong proof of his abilities as an actor when the comedy-drama ‘Jolly LLB 2’ opened to a decent response at the box office and earned rave reviews along the way. Featuring the versatile actor in the role of a lawyer, it won hearts thanks to its light-hearted yet hard-hitting presentation and effective performances.
Now, its Telugu remake ‘Sapthagiri LLB’ has finally arrived in theatres. The film has been directed by newcomer Charan and features comedian ‘Sapthagiri’ in the lead. Considering the success attained by the original, there are high expectations from the remake. However, judging by the initial reaction on Twitter, ‘Sapthagiri LLB’ has not quite lived up to expectations. Most fans feel that it is a mediocre remake and does not really much to the viewers. However, some fans have praised the film’s climax.

Interestingly, this is Sapthagiri’s second outing as a leading man since ‘Sapthagiri Express’. Sometime ago, he had told a leading agency that working as a hero is a responsibility for him. At the same time, he had added that he will continue doing continue comedian roles along with lead ones.
“While I will continue to do hero roles, I am also simultaneously doing comic roles. So I am learning to strike a balance between these two jobs (protagonist and a comedian). I don’t compare myself with other actors, instead focus on my job,” he had added.
