A newspaper advertisement for a law college has been doing the rounds on the Internet for an amusing reason. It draws a comparison between Gabriel Macht's Harvey Specter from the hit American television series Suits and Jagdishwar Mishra, played by Akshay Kumar in the Hindi film Jolly LLB 2.
The full-page advertisement is for the Indore Institute of Law. It features the images of the two characters placed with the text reading, “You can be Harvey Specter or Jagdishwar Mishra, choice is yours”. For those who don't know, in the American series, Harvey Specter is one of the most sought-after lawyers in the US. Whereas, Jagdishwar Mishra is a struggling Lucknow-based lawyer who dares to fight a legal battle against an experienced and cunning lawyer and wins it.
Sharing the photo, the user joked, “I want the confidence that Indore colleges have”.

It seems the creative advertisement could not be grasped by everyone.
i don't get what the Indore Institute of law is trying to prove here? both the characters were good as lawyers - made mistakes in their careers but at the end rectified them and again proved their accountability. so what is this comparison? matlab cool banne ke liye kuch bhi????— Aditi (@aditipolkam) October 6, 2022
“Indore Institute Of Law>>>Harvard Law school,” a user wrote highlighting that Harvey Specter graduated from the prestigious Harvard Law School.

Many did not leave a chance to rope in Saul Goodman or Jimmy McGill from the TV series Better Call Saul. The character, who is a lawyer in the show, has been played by actor Bob Odenkirk.
