As yoiu can see, I am a big fan of courtroom movies and one thing I got from my experience in legal polls suggestion is that the term "courtroom movie" is way too broad to make a 35-option list without missing many other valuable entries... I mean we're ralking of a drama subgenre so there's got to be an additional parameter. I guess "rated higher than 8.0" would be fine.

Yeah I've seen your polls, they are similar but more specific, while mine is more general. I tried to include the movies considered the very best and popular of the genre. The actual reason I made this poll is because I watched My Cousin Vinny and I REALLY LOVED it, it's probably one of favorite movies ever.

I see your point but how do you measure up "considered the best and popular", you've got to use some objective parameters such as the ratings, the awards...  popularity is a parameter on IMDb, maybe "My Cousin Vinny" is indeed one of the most popular and if you consider Oscar-winning courtroom movies then you've got it too. If the motive is to see how "MCV" stands among other legal movies, the trick is just to find a parameter that would include it :)

1. Jolly LLB and Jolly LLB 2 (as one entry)
    

2. Shahid (2012)


3. Pink (2016)


4. OMG: Oh My God! (2012)

The plot in this one is very intersting; A merchant decides to sue God after his antique shop is destroyed in an earthquake and the insurance company denies his claim.

Edit: All four are Bollywood movies.
