(By Akshat Sharma) Actor turned Producer-Director Pooja Bhatt’s eagerly -awaited movie ‘Jism 2’ released in theatres today with huge expectations and curiosity among cinegoers about its heroine Sunny Leone and her performance. No doubt Sunny Leone is the X factor in the movie and her presence in the movies ensures a good opening for the movie.
Sunny Leone plays Izna, a porn star in the movie who meets an intelligence officer Ayaan played by Arunoday Singh. She has no idea that she is playing into the hands of the intelligence agency. Izna is convinced by Ayaan to lay a honey-trap for Kabir (Randeep Hooda). Her encounter with Kabir opens up the floodgates for everything. They come close and things get complicated.
Since this movie is dubbed as an erotic thriller with a professional pornstar on board we get those ‘scenes’ but no Bollywood movie no matter how bold it claims to be can match the international standards. So if you think you will be watching a pornstar going wild on big screen then stay home and search for video links on the internet.
‘Jism 2’ introduces Sunny Leone as a performer and she doesn’t disappoint. She looks ‘credible’ in her role. Randeep Hooda could have done justice to his role if there was more juice in the script. Arunoday Singh has been wasted in the movie and despite his character of an intelligence office his over the top emotional pitch doesn’t strike any chord with the audience. He is the biggest disappointment in the movie. Good looks and body can take you thus far only.
Only Sunny Leone gives a spunky performance. She manages to hold herself throughout the movie. She proves that pornstars can give a performance even out of their bedrooms. She has the potential but whether Bollywood can tap this potential further is yet to be seen.
In Bollywood movies, the problem always lies with the story and screenplay. ‘Jism 2’ also lacks a cohesive and imaginative plot. At times you get a feeling that the movie is stretched beyond its limits and everything falls apart.
Besides Sunny Leone the music of the film is also a bright spot in the movie. It gives you some relief from the painful experience that you go through while watching the movie. Cinematography is another plus in the movie as the virgin locations of Sri Lanka has been captured well in the movie.
‘Jism 2’ is strictly for those who want to see a porn star in ‘action’. For others it is a waste of time and money.
