A courtroom drama is what Pollywood would soon witness. The brainchild of Atharv Baluja, Judge Singh LLB puts across a story stuck in a legal tangle. A touching father-son narrative has an interesting sub-plot too.

On Monday, an all-men cast and crew of the film released its motion poster. While singer-actor Ravinder Grewal plays the main lead, a lawyer called ‘Judge’, the role of the father has been essayed by the veteran BN Sharma.

The comic suspense drama originated in a real-life experience. “I happened to witness a case that started from the district court and was dragged on to the Supreme Court. That gave me a glimpse into our judicial system, and I decided to bring this court scene to the silver screen. Only that the real case I saw and the one presented in the film has no connection,” shares Atharv.

The team Judge Singh LLB swears by sticking to the ground situation. “When you see the film, you will feel that you have been through a similar situation,” offers BN Sharma.

Ravinder Grewal has had a tough time remembering all sections that became part of the longish dialogues. “It was not easy to get into the character; turning an advocate even on reel is hard work,” he admits.

The film has Sardar Sohi and Harpal Singh in pivotal roles. “I play a seasoned lawyer,” shares Sohi. Harpal Singh playing the heroine’s father says, “What a daughter’s father has to go through is what I portray in the film.”

While most men of the team show their faith in Atharv, who has helmed Aiven Raula Pai Gaya before and swear by his dedication, the director trusts his actors. We see no heroine! They explain, “Our judge is a woman.”

Well, check out this movie on September 18.
