In the run up to the release, Jism 2 had a lot going for it. It had the infamous Sunny Leone in the lead role and some steamy scenes were used to cut the promos. Expectations were naturally sky high and the Bhatt family marketed the movie well. Produced and directed by Pooja Bhatt, Jism 2 has Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh in the lead roles opposite Sunny Leone. Let us see how the film is.
Izna (Sunny Leone) is an adult actress who is cheated and abandoned by the notorious Kabir (Randeep Hooda) .As a dejected Izna goes about wasting her life, in comes Special Agent Ayaan (Arunoday Singh). He convinces her to work for the country and requests her to go after Kabir once again. After a little prodding, Isna agrees and together, they devise a plan to snare Kabir.
The movie shifts to Sri Lanka where Kabir is now based. Through a series of well planned encounters, Izna slowly gets back into Kabir’s life. A suspicious Kabir tries to check her out, but finding nothing, he falls completely for her and passion takes over.
But just as Kabir starts trusting Izna, conflicts of interest pop up. Betrayal, suspicion and jealousy come into the story. Whom does Izna really love? Is Kabir really in love with Izna? What happens to Ayaan? That forms the story.
Plus Points :
All three of the leading stars have good bodies. That is about the only positive aspect that I can think of in this movie. Sunny Leone does appear quite seductive in a few frames and the locations are quite grand.
Minus Points :
The film has so many flaws that one wonders if it really was shot seriously. Terrible performances from everyone, including the very talented Randeep Hooda, add to the pain. Sunny Leone can’t act. Period. She is wooden, has no capability to emote and looks ridiculous when she tries to cry.
Randeep Hooda, who is normally quite a talented actor, has the look of helplessness throughout the film. His expressions are so bad that it is almost as if he knows the movie is doomed. And Arunoday Singh is utterly clueless about where to shout and where to cry. So he uses a combination of both irrespective of whether the scene demands it.
The ‘story’, if you can call it that, is terribly poor. It is almost as if Pooja and Mahesh Bhatt were trying to fill in some lines between the mandatory romance sequences. Coming to the so called ‘hot scenes’, don’t be fooled. There are a few passionate lip locks,but that is about it. There is no emotion behind the lovemaking scenes and they are too brief to make an impact.
Many of the scenes are predictable, cliched and yawn inducing.
Technical Aspects :
Nigam Bomzan’s cinematography is one of the sole saving graces of the film. The visuals are good and the locations are grand. Editing is pathetic and screenplay is terrible. Background score is just passable and none of the songs make a lasting impression. Production values are good.
Pooja Bhatt fails miserably as a director. This movie is so bad that it is almost laughable.
‘Jism2′ is a poor excuse of a film. It is a haphazard marketing plan put together to create a buzz through the adult star Sunny Leone and make some quick money, without doing too much hard work. There is nothing in the movie, even for voyeurs. It is terribly boring, cliched and outdated. Avoid ‘Jism 2′. If you are mad about Sunny Leone, there are better ways to indulge your passion.
