A pretentious erotic thriller which neither thrills nor is it sensuous ...
rangdetumpy4 August 2012
Agreed that India is now somewhat ready for erotic thrillers which were not the scenario way back in 2003 when "Jism" came out of Bhatt camp. Known for their broadmindedness and talking about taboos Bhatts did a decent job with Jism (even though it wasn't by any means a great movie),a dark erotic thriller with Bipasha succeeding in the role of a mysterious seductress. Come to 2012 they wanted to capitalize on the brand Jism and come with a naive Jism2. They even roped in famous porn-star Sunny Leone to create hell of hype but sadly the idiotic plot will let you think "Ra One" is a masterpiece.

The so "original" plot is all about Izna (still clueless about showing her as a porn-star which didn't help anything in the film) and how the Indian intelligence hired her to destroy the network of a dreaded assassin Kabir and add to the "surprise" Kabir was Izna's ex-boyfriend. And then in a stupid pretentious pseudo-erotic thriller, intelligence officer Ayan and Izna lands up in a resort just opposite Kabir's place from where Izna can easily lure Kabir to her trap and get the data. Think f the plot it is too juvenile to think that such master planner intelligent officer-turned-assassins are dumb enough to keep data in a laptop lying unguarded.

Mahesh Bhatt simply lost his creative bent of mind with time which was evident from this wafer-thinnest ever script which has plot holes bigger than Leone's assets. Why the hell would intelligence plant a porn-star when they know every whereabouts of the assassin and that also only a two-men army. Moreover from manipulative journalism to terrorism to patriotism Bhatt tried to chew too much but sadly left audience with indigestion. To be precise it comes with an added headache. The plot of good guy turning bad who is actually good and all the tug-of-war for a voluptuous pretty lady had expiry date written all over it. To add to the torture dialogs were unintentionally funny. With Urdu thrown here and there to give a spiritual feeling (even bible has been quoted twice) it was as lame as it can be. Even the lovemaking sequences were painfully contrived unlike earlier film of this franchise and not a single frame oozes any sensuality. Frankly speaking Bhatts confused with the genre of the film they were trying to make and eventually actually wrapped in too many things. They tried to highlight the love for body with a soul. While we could easily figure out the big Hole in the plot, that particular soul was definitely missing.

Pooja Bhatt should stop directing films and concentrate on promotional videos for resorts and spa. The camera was unnecessarily wandering around the green locations of the Srilankan resort, if it wasn't fixed in Leone's body. If Bhatt's idea to showcase a modern individualistic woman is by showing her roaming around in lingerie then it only reflects duplicity of her mind. The shots of camera were there only for titillation with beautiful locales and not-so-zoomed camera angles to camouflage the intentions. Less said about the acting is better. Sunny Leone exactly showed two expressions throughout the film. When she is not seducing either she is smiling or she is heaving. In fact she heaves when she is happy, she heaves when she is sad, she heaves when she has to show orgasm, she heaves when she is frightened..and we, the audience heave in almighty knows what. In fact her reactions in climax can make one roll in laughter and at the same time kill someone in anger. To add to the brutality the lady who dubbed for Leone (it doesn't seem to be her voice) had a shrieking high pitch which gives a feeling as if a needle has been poked inside her. Arunodoy Singh as Officer Ayan was as clueless in the first half as in the second. While he was overtly robotic in the first half he turned to be highly emotional in the second half. The close-up sequences where he was shown crying or bursting out of emotions were the funniest ones. Even I don't remember laughing out so loudly while watching the stupid slapstick film "Kya Super Kool hai Hum" the previous week than this one. Arunodoy should be nominated in the comic role category. Same can be said about Arif Zakaria who was too theatrical to maintain equilibrium with otherwise stiff Singh. When they both speak childishly about war & peace, you can relax your senses gazing into the torso of heaving Leone. Randeep Hooda as Kabir was decent in few scenes but the weak script overpowered his acting capability. Inane histrionics with few spiritual lines didn't help either. His portrayal of a Messiah & patriot didn't evoke any sympathy. The only positive aspect of this film is its music. Debutant composer Dr Arka Pravo Mukherjee's sufi inspired (unlike Pritam's plagiarism) music was all treat to the ear.With limited use of instruments backed by strong vocals of exceptionally talented Ali Azmat, they created some magic. "Maula" and "Ye Jism hay tu kya" haunts you with its tune and strong lyrics. How one wished the dialogs were as strong as the lyrics of the songs in the film.Though it has nothing to do with the film the other great thing about the movie was the interval where a brilliant 5mins trailer of Gangs of Wasseypur-II was show

Overall Jism-2 is an utter disappointment. It is a bad example of film making at its pretentious best.

A great unintentional comedy
Apurv Nagpal2 August 2012
I found the following things funny about the film

•Sunny Leone's constantly heaving bosom through the entire film. Its just the speed which varies and at its peak (pun intended), it clocks in a shade faster time than the Titanic. •The afore-mentioned bosom manages to convey more emotion than Arunoday in the entire film •One song begins with such sustained yowling that even Sunny Leone develops a painful look that is reasonably convincing. •When the intelligence agency chief, Arif Zakaria, better known as The Wig Who Walks, meets Sunny for the first time, he requests her to 'come' twice within the first couple of minutes •The story credit for Mahesh Bhatt. Should've been a debit. •The reliance on old school acting. Bite lips, heave bosom, yell, smash things, look constipated to demonstrate pain, anguish. •In a major score for consistency, the same constipated feeling was conveyed through the selection of the lead vocalists as well. •The predictability of the end which was only overshadowed by its sheer dumbness

This is a great unintentional comedy to watch in a group, a kind of a soft porn film, masquerading as a full feature. If you can ignore the lack of a story, acting skills, plausible characters and tuneful music, you may even have fun viewing this.

She is hired by an intelligence officer, Arunoday, (who sleeps with her first, kind of like a 'test the goods' sort of thing), for a dangerous mission. To get close to her ex-lover, Randeep Hooda, a renegade officer and currently freelance assassin, and to get some data from him. From the first frame onwards, nothing any of the characters does makes any sense. The only things worth admiring are Sunny's constantly revealed assets, the locations and the tasteful interiors of the various homes chosen.

Sunny, obviously not hired for her acting chops, prefers to ignore dictums like 'vastra aurat ka gehna hote hain' and appears to be in greater load shedding mode than the much maligned Northern power grid. Arunoday is in sleepwalk mode throughout and Randeep is wasted in his vacuous shayari spouting role. The tortuously slow pace of the film doesn't help either

As I look at the original film poster again, its clear that some things are better off under wraps. The film is 132 minutes long. With a little skillful editing, could've shaved off about a 100 odd minutes…

If you want to laugh at emotional scenes then it is a must watch
dineshprakash3 August 2012
Watched "JISM 2". If you want to laugh at emotional scenes then it is a must watch. I didn't get the creative motto behind making of this picture. If they wanted to expose Sunny Leone, then they should have remembered that she is already over exposed. Censor has chopped the steamy scenes at the level that it could have been gotten U/A certification but the taboo of Sunny Leone made it A. There is only a good thing that is the poster design, especially the girl in semi transparent cover, which is not in film. This poster easily created the curiosity among audience. Due to this poster and the brand value of it's part 1, exhibitors are going to book losses because audience will bombard with negative mouth publicity. Direction is poor. Story is also not up to mark. Few dialogues are good at places but remember only a few. when Sunny Leone fell in love at first sight is good. Rest dialogues are reflecting the dialogues writers personal things without thinking about the character. Dialogue writer Shagufta Rafique, has used heavy Urdu word like Myar, Darakht, Tasauuar, Awam but there is no any typical Muslim character. Music is good and soothing at least. Performance wise Randip Hooda is good in anger but funny in emotional scenes. Surprisingly Sunny Leone did well in an intense emotional scene.

Warning: Spoilers
Bhatt films are normally films with good stories, ample sex, shock value and hit music but that is Vishesh films. Pooja Bhatt who didn't do much as an actress(mostly starred in dad's films) as a producer she managed to get a hit JISM which was quite shocking those days in 2003.Then she got flops like Dhokha, Rog and Kajra Re. JISM 2 marks the debut of Sunny Leone, it also has Arunoday Singh who did some few films like Sikandar, Mirch, Yeh Saali Zindagi along with the talented Randeep Hooda who recently got great acclaim for his acts in Saheb Biwi aur Gangster and Jannat 2. Sadly the film comes across as a badly attempted thriller cum sex film and ends up being a comedy. The film starts with a backless shot of Sunny Leone who claims that she is a porn star but her career never really seems significant in the film Being a porn star she is only shown sleeping around. Which a prostitute does, seems like they didn't know the difference. Surprisingly the film is written by Mahesh Bhatt who gave several great films as a writer like Gangster, Awarapan but here the film has so many big loopholes it seems it was just made for the sake of cashing on the hoopla of Sunny Leone or the brand of Jism The erotica too seems to be inserted to shock the audience but it is just in bits and spurts and hardly excites. There are several hilarious scenes in the film, the plot is absolute stupid... The reason behind IB sending Sunny Leone to Randeep Hooda seems so stupid, also the reason she becomes a porn star is never revealed. It seems like it's forced last minute to show her real life. The film starts with Sunny Leone going to a party where Arunoday gazes at her, sleeps with her and in the morning reveals the plan This scene itself with hideous dialogs, hideous overacting, pouting and then the scene that follows where Arif Jackeria reveals the plan like a theater act will make it for the best comedy scenes this year. The dialogs of the film seem to be written for some other film, The entire film has dialogs in sher shayari style and look like 70s leftovers. The film goes for a flashback where Randeep was a cop who busts a party of drugs and falls for Sunny and then disappears after sex with her. Back to present The rest is a foolhardily story of cat and mouse game, melodrama, long boring dialogs and never ending twists. The sexual scenes are mostly cut by censors too but the worst part is the story, screenplay all look like mere props to showcase sex and SL.

Randeep Hooda has become a terrorist now and hides in his mansion which looks like some decorated studio with walls painted in blues He is shown in a disguise of a musician and we break into a song Ishq re kiya re maula where Randeep is shown going crazy with the cello. The film tries hard to be everything, from romance, sex, thrills to everything under one roof and it never manages to keep the viewer involved. In fact there are scenes that are so hysterical that they make you break into laughter, like most scenes between Arif Jackeria and Arunoday The dialogs never end and look out of context. suddenly there is a love triangle and predictable twists and turns. The ending too reminds us of many Bhatt films which were superior compared Direction by Pooja is terrible Music is the best part All songs are fabulous, Maula, Yeh Jism and every song suits the film well Camera-work is a USP

Actingwise Sunny Leone looks good, has a beautiful face and good eyes and body but fails to carry off her part. She is so amateurish that she makes you cringe, for a first timer she may be forgiven though yet she is pathetic She maintains 2 expressions throughout, Huffing Puffing Breathing excessively or maintaining a plastic face she does it in all scene. sex scene, romantic scene, emotional scene, drama scene all scenes have her excessively breathing. Her dubbing also is below par. Bipasha's voice too was dubbed in Jism but it was far better as Bips brought in the right sensuality and expressions but Sunny fails. Arunoday Singh gives her tough competition. He looks like an AIDS patient more then a IB guy, Just watch him in emotional breakdown scenes and you'll laugh aloud. He is so terrible that he makes you cringe. Randeep Hooda a talented actor is wasted in this hotchpotch film He manages to make you feel for his character in some breakdown scenes but otherwise most of the film has him stare at Sunny or say never ending dialogs and many times his character seems unjustified and weird Amongst the rest(only 6 characters in the film) Arif Jackeria normally a fine actor(Jannat 2 and several more) seems out of place in the set up, He too makes you laugh unintentionally blame it on his dialogs or the way he mouths them. Imran Zayed seen in Jannat 2 has 2-3 scenes and is okay

Sunny Leone, the only reason to sit through this atrocious movie
Saad Khan5 September 2012
Jism 2 – CATCH IT "As I know you'll do in any case" (C) FBI, a Porn Star and a Terrorist, Jism 2 relies on only on these characteristics rather than any story or screenplay. The only thing good about Jism 2 along with its music and stunning locations is Sunny Leone. In the mist of bad story, bad direction and bad performances Sunny Leone still makes you notice her and I think that's her achievement. She has strong screen presence and looks stunning walking around in lingerie. Randeep Hooda is alright but trapped in bad characterization and poor direction. Arunoday Singh as good until he has to speak, scream or show some emotional range. He is especially terrible in emotional scenes. In the end, even though it's a tedious bad movie, you will watch this one for Sunny Leone though let's be clear there is nothing is nothing new in the movie as all was shown in the promos already. Bummer!!!!

A childish attempt to fool the viewers by only showing the body beautiful without any soul or content.
bobbysing23 August 2012
If there is one person in Hindi Film Industry who has skillfully learned the art of how to exploit each new opportunity coming his way for the benefit of his own banner then it has to be none other than Mahesh Bhatt. The man sights a great potential money spinner the moment he sees the famous porn star Sunny Leone featuring in the TV reality show Big Boss, makes arrangements to enter the house personally to offer her a film and superbly starts the publicity campaign of something which was not even there on papers right from inside the big boss house.

Not only that, but in the next few months, he professionally works on the project within a fixed budget, writes the film himself (inspired from Hitchcock's Notorious), gives the direction to her daughter Pooja Bhatt and releases the film with some controversial posters (reportedly inspired/copied from Goa based designer Felix Bandesh's 2008 fashion photo-shoot) on a festival day in India to ensure a great initial.

But on the other hand, as I watched the film, it surprised me a lot with its childish content which had nothing to say at all besides its expected body show from a western porn star. Said to be a Crime-Sex- Thriller, the film has neither got any thrills nor any excitement in its immature storyline only interested in showing you Sunny's bare backs, her steamy kisses and the abrupt sex scenes retained after the cuts ordered by the Censors. So, it was really shocking for me to realize that the film was written by Mahesh Bhatt himself, who had a lot of power in his vision, repeatedly proved by his own masterpieces in the past.

In strong words with JISM 2 both its writer and the director try to make fool of we, the audience as if we are only there to see Sunny Leone without her clothes, locking lips every five minutes. In this context I would like to remind both Pooja Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt that please don't treat the audience as dumb minded people who would just applaud anything served by you in the name of SEX. Because what you are selling to them for a price in the name of Sunny Leone, a lot more than that is easily available free of cost on a simple click all over the net. So please don't take us as granted every time you make a movie, which in reality is a mere commercial project rather than being a creative expression of a visionary. And as far as direction is concerned Pooja Bhatt should stick to producing films and avoid directing them for the sake of her own banner.

Coming to the performances, only Randeep Hooda seems to be acting in the film to some extent and the rest are all doing their offered jobs as professionals. I have liked Arunoday Singh in all his previous ventures but in this he has really acted in a very awkward style and remains completely unconvincing. Arif Zakaria once again gives a seen before performance which fails to impress and Sunny Leone expectedly relies a lot more on her body than her acting skills which was pretty obvious. But still she manages well in her debut venture with her limited facial expressions and stunning beauty. The girl has got the fire to burn the screen but doesn't get anything to work on from her writer-mentor Mahesh Bhatt. And I seriously doubt that with such an image she would ever get an author backed role in our films.

Honestly speaking, throughout JISM 2 I remained puzzled thinking that can Mahesh Bhatt really write this kind of crap storyline and screenplay? The progression of the film is so lazy and uninteresting that it seriously doesn't seem to be a Bhatt's camp movie from any angle other than its sexual scenes. The absurd writing reaches heights when you suddenly hear a vague mention of Cancer towards its end and also the playing of an old Hindi classic song "Woh Subah Kabhi To Aayegi" without any basic purpose. Unarguably Sunny Leone is sure going to learn a lot of essential lessons from her first film itself about how things actually work in our Hindi Film Industry, where the on screen project comes out to be entirely different from what was being projected in those initial interactive sessions.

As publicized in its promos the Cinematography gracefully adds to the soft-porn feel of the movie along with its OK background score. But another surprise of JISM 2 remains its less inspiring soundtrack despite the presence of Mr. Bhatt, the man with a fine musical ear. Though few songs sound fine as individual tracks but while watching them on the screen in their boring placements, they fail to keep you hooked.

Continuing with Mr. Bhatt's passion for Pakistani music, Rashk, one of the four music directors in the film, simply ruins a fabulous track originally sung by the legendary Noor Jehan and Reshmawith the words, "Na Dil Dendi Bedardi Nu".

Overall, JISM 2 is surely one of the weakest movies from the Bhatt camp and maybe the most silly one too. I recently read that after working in it, Sunny Leone was thinking of leaving the porn industry to pursue a dedicated career in Indian films. But after watching it, I would just like to say to her that, please do watch JISM 2 yourself as a movie, before taking your final decision. Because here you are nothing more than a bold girl who has a rare beauty ready to be canned naked without any hassles and who can easily bring in great initials even for a trash film. Hence, I sincerely doubt anyone would be ever able to see beyond that for Sunny Leone in the present scenario of our films.

Audience taken for ride for Erotic thriller with Pitiable script, Pathetic direction, Lackluster dialogs
gbasandani22 August 2012
Jism already a hot brand was waiting for by another hottie Sunny Leone to create a perfect combination to seduce audience to come to the theater. Arunoday Singh and Randeep Hooda talented duo were to fill the missing ingredient, had the script been written with sincerity to suit roles, characters and theme. Heavy Urdu moralistic dialogs looks out of place and funny from Sunny. She can say the same what Pamela Anderson quoted once "I am not an actress, I don't think I am an actress. I think I have created a brand and a business." A femme fatal Izna (Sunny Leone), is hired by a young chap an intelligence officer, to expose a hardcore criminal who has been involved in assassination of many govt. high ranking officers, ministers and even bombing of innocent people. In the past she had been the inamorata of this criminal and deserted by him. The agency asks her to use her amorous to take out in-depth information of the terrorist organization kept on his computer. Unfortunately everybody have his own justification of doing the things, right or wrong, irrespective of which side of law they are. In the end personal interest get bigger than the principles, and the ethical code one is working for. Life is a game of cards in which heart is never an asset. Heart always takes over the logics of mind. Exquisite locations and scenes are definitely eye soothing with Sunny's assets exposure and romantic scenes. Nice classic songs but you are not watching a classic or an offbeat film and are completely misfit for this kind of a theme. The songs with beat and fast pace are more appropriate for such films.

It is really unfortunate that producer director and story writer of Mahesh Bhatt's caliber, (ultimately it is his blessing, guidance and banner is at stake), can be so myopic and takes audience for ride. Am sure they should have done better homework to en-cash the brands (Sunny n Jism) they were holding and for their future projects. The movie is B (minus) grade.

what's going on?
rightwingisevil26 October 2012
i never thought that Hindi movie could be this bad, dude. how dare you can fool us with such a joking movie, dude?! the screenplay was a joke, the acting of all the participants were nobody but some funny males and one big porn star, sunny leone! the only thing that this hollow pretentious film didn't show us was the complete naked body of sunny leone, the penetrations from all the openings of her body. the screenplay was like written by a junior high school student. the scenario was so laughable and elementary, the plot so ridiculous. it's just so hollow and pretentious. the director seemed to be a korean movies lovers, burned a lot of production money on fireworks to make the scenes more colorful and alive, but other than the fireworks in the night sky, the whole movie was just a deadbeat soul-less nothingness. i paid more attention to this movie's settings, such as those exotic and luxurious hotel scenes, those nice furniture and their layout. sunny leone looked just like a woman who overly used her body in porn movies, her figures and her facial features both aging prematurely, she looked more like a cougar instead of young woman.

i laughed out-loud when i read her so-called "bio". it read just like this particular moronic film's screenplay, a hollow and pretentious joke! the guy who wrote her bio was definitely one of the guys who wrote those porno movies screenplays for her. very funny.

Jism 2 (A)------------Rating: 2/5 AVOID

Jism 2 (A)------------Rating: 2/5 AVOID

*It is an erotic flick which is not a thriller..... *Music was awesome and direction is good and story contains a beautiful dialogues... *Sunny leone is not suitable in Bollywood where as she is best in Porn industry but in this movie her figure/sexy scenes were beautiful...

-Story is not good feels boring but the screenplay is fast.... -Love making scenes are very less and decent with more kisses....

On the whole watch this movie for sunny leone....

Jism 2' is the sequel to the 2003 movie 'Jism' starring Bipasha Basu and John Abraham.

A porn star (Sunny Leone) is hired by a dashing intelligence officer (Arunoday Singh) to become a 'Honey-trap' for a dreaded assassin (Randeep Hooda). In doing so, she not only has to confront her bitter- sweet past, but is also forced to make an impossible choice - one that will put her own life in double jeopardy
