Boman Irani, who played a corrupt lawyer in "JOLLY L.L.B.", is overjoyed at the film being named the Best Hindi Film at the 61st National Film Awards.

Boman believes that the film spoke about change and that's what made it successful.

"'JOLLY L.L.B.', just like 'Bhoothnath Returns,' speaks of what the people want to hear. It's about hope, about the system and whether there can be some kind of change in the country," the 54-year-old said here Wednesday at the success party of "Bhoothnath Returns".

"'JOLLY L.L.B.' was that kind of film and thankfully, it has won the best Hindi film National award, I am really overjoyed," he added.

"I think there is hope for good intention cinema in the country," Boman said.
