In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee said that Jolly LLB 2 is both funny and thought provoking. "Jolly LLB 2 does well not to take itself too seriously. It has the feel of a good-natured banter between friends rather than that of an inflated inquest conducted from a pedestal. Scintillating? No. Enjoyable? Absolutely," he wrote. He gave the film a three-star rating.
Bollywood celebs also found Akshay to be a Jolly good fellow. Celebs like Arshad Warsi (the original Jolly), Hrithik Roshan and Siddharth Malhotra congratulated Akshay for his performance.
