Sapthagiri (Sapthagiri) is the protagonist. A lawyer, seeking to build a reputation, he lands in a case which motivates him to to file a PIL to get it reopened. The movie centres around what follows. The plot unravels interestingly, but could have been a bit more taut. The court-room scene is deftly handled.
Sapthagiri, in the eponymous role, turns out a convincing performance. Others in the cast including Gollapudi Maruthi Rao, Siva Prasad, Sai Kumar and Jhansi hold the plot together and prop it up with their acting. The musical score of the film is quite mediocre, to put it mildly.
Saptagiri is a remake of 2013 Hindi black comedy movie - Jolly LLB. The movie which was directed by Subash Kapoor, featured Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani and Amrita Rao.
The grapevine first had it that Tollywood actor Victory Venkatesh would do the movie. However, Venkatesh changed his plans and finally the offer seemed to have come Saptagiri’s way. This is the second movie for the comedian-turned-hero Saptagiri as a hero.
