Director Subhash Kapoor, whose new film "Jolly L.L.B." is a satire on the country's judiciary system, says humour makes it easier for a message-based movie to reach a wide audience.
The director, who had earlier helmed the satire "Phas Gaye Re Obama", narrated an incident to prove his point.
"When you go to courts, there are about three-and-half crore cases pending in India. There are people in jail since 15 years and their hearing has not yet started. I met a guy at the Tis Hazari courts in Delhi. For his property, his family has declared him dead on papers, and he has been fighting a case since six years to prove that he is not dead, he is alive," Subhash said here Tuesday at the first look launch of "Jolly L.L.B.".
"Now, how do I deal with a situation like that? To me, it is funny, ironical. So I tried to deal with it with a certain amount of humour, satire and I don't think the message gets diluted in that way. It increases the reach, it is much easier for people to see it," he added.
