Jism 2 critic reviews & ratings

 

Yeh jism pyaar karna nahin janta, janta hai toh sirf bookh, jism ki bookh. This crackling dialogue was uttered in the original Jism by Bipasha Basu, wearing a strategically cut white gown. We've become blasé about sex in Bollywood, but back then, this felt edgy and dangerous. One year before the game-changing Murder, Jism coloured Bollywood's traditional, chaste plots, with unapologetic lust. I thought that Jism 2, which is a sequelmore

It takes a special kind of skill to make a film as harebrained as Jism 2. To say that its script is ridden with plot holes is an understatement; the plot itself is like a big, black hole there is no coming out of. Adult film actress Sunny Leone makes her 'legit' movie debut starring as porn actress Izna, although it’s hard to say why she’s meant to be a porn actress, given that this teeny-weeny detail doesn’t further the plot in any way whatsoevermore

Indian storytellers are now breaking out of conventional shackles, while avid moviegoers are stepping into cinemas to view stories rarely attempted before. JISM 2, an erotic thriller, is touted as the boldest film [in that segment] to hit the Hindi screen, but the question that crosses your mind is, does it boast of a captivating story as well? Do you carry the film and the characters in your heart once you exit the auditorium?more

Jism 2 is a wonder. That vishesh piece of motion picture which can turn you into a freeze frame. That day is not far when the world will be divided into two kinds of people — the ones who saw Jism 2 and the ones who didn’t. The people from the first category would not dare tocome out in the open but they would all remember the horrors of the night. Nothing that you have ever seen or you would ever see can prepare you for thismore

Jism-2 is a sexy movie - but it's not as dirty a picture as you might expect. Surprisingly, Jism-2 hovers over sex, like a butterfly gliding across one of the many water pools the movie features. The few times the film does jump in, it lands in the shallow end. That's despite a hot start featuring amply-endowed Izna (Leone), all red lingerie, glistening high heels, tight suspenders and generous cleavage, riding intelligence bureau (IB) officermore

Jism 2 is hybrid cinema. A sort of B-grade sex thriller meets patriotic drama meets intense love story meets spoof. The film is all of the above and none of them. It also falls under a category much cherished by film lovers – the So Bad It’s Good variety. In the past few years, Prince, Haunted 3D and Players have made it to the illustrious list of films that are terrible, yet terribly entertaining. Jism 2 is a fitting additionmore

The posters whet the voyeur’s appetite. With flavour of the season Sunny Leone at the centre of all the action, Jism 2 announced an à la carte to suit every pervert’s taste. Surprisingly, there’s more to the film than just skin show — Leone’s lingerie and breathtaking Sri Lanka. Porn star Izna (Leone) is trained to seduce and reduce men to mere helpless beings as she wields her beauty and boldness. One such Romeo ismore

Sex is a lot of things -- emotional, exciting, dirty. But boring? Even with Sunny Leone in it? Wow, Bollywood that's below the belt. Even by your standards. The Pooja Bhatt directed Jism 2 alternates as a picturesque and dark erotic drama along the lines of Last Tango in Paris and In The Cut but is much too comical to turn on the heat as either. First things first, Leone looks predictably hot, has an easy screen presence more

The Indian Intelligence Bureau (IB) desperately needs a porn star to seduce this assassin and look for his ‘data.’ So they send an honest officer Ayaan to pick up one, sleep with her to see if she’s up to the job, and bring her to Sri Lanka so that the country can be ‘saved’. Enter porn star-overnight-turned-super spy Izna teetering in high, high red heels and a shocking red lacy bra and panties and black lace stockings. The ‘mission’ has begunmore

Big wind, loud thunder, no rain. 'Jism too' is all that and much less! Just having 'assets' thrust at the viewer from posters and a scantily clad woman on hoardings is not going to make a movie. It's nice to cash in on the publicity of some semi-famous Canadian porn star, but it also has to be backed with some solid writing. JISM 2 is flawed from the word go. All that director Pooja Bhatt is able to see is the 'Sunny' side of the female leadmore

Bare-backed girl, making like a mermaid, on a rock, against the sea. I Am A Pornstar, a voice-over intones, and This Is My Story. Okay then. You sit back and wait for some hot action which is what porn stars are meant to show us, right? Or what are they porn stars, avowedly and loudly, for? I am here to tell you that on that count alone, Jism 2 is a crashing disappointment. Yes, there are several flashes of bare backsmore

Lust, sex and dhokha are its overriding ingredients, but Jism-2, for good measure, opens with a Biblical reference – "the life of man upon earth is warfare" – so that the audience does not miss the moral context of the drama. But when it is Sunny side up with a voluptuous and well-endowed Leone using her body at the drop of a black bustier to get her point across in this steamy and slow-burning drama, it is actually a perfectly agreeablemore

Once upon a time, on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, there lived two titties and two titty-crazy men. Two hours later they all died. This pretty much sums up the story, USP and raison d’etre of Jism 2. Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2 is a lazy, annoying film that’s been put on screen simply because the Bhatts — father Mahesh and daughter Pooja — saw the commotion that Sunny Leone’s entry in Bigg Boss’ house in December last year generatedmore

For the sleep deprived

When an adult entertainer as pretty as Sunny Leone makes her acting debut, you don't expect her to come up with an award-winning performance. She doesn't. Because this is not THAT kind of film. There are films where you just do what you are good at. And films where you pretend you know what you are doing. Though it shows that Sunny does try hard to act, it must be said here that she does way better than Katrina Kaif in Boom. In fact, they even lookmore

After all the hoopla, what you get is a two-hour condom ad shot in Sri Lanka. Pooja Bhatt's Jism 2 roughly divides itself into two moods: Sunny Leone striking sultry half-nude poses with Randeep Hooda/Arunoday Singh (which is what you will pay to watch), and Sunny giving a wide-eyed, clueless look as Randeep/Arunoday blabber, blather and yell. Classy, metaphorical, dramatic, gross, dirty, sad, funny - sex on the screen has been all these and more over the yearsmore

How to create hype around a non-film: Take a notorious porn star as your heroine. Shoot controversial posters featuring her and able-bodied hunks. Sit back and enjoy as the moral police makes noise about them and the film. Then gloat privately as you’ve just been handed a good initial. That’s exactly the formula followed by director Pooja Bhatt. Jism 2 will get enough footfall thanks Sunny Leone’s porn star ratingmore

Shedding clothes, wearing clothes, shedding clothes, wearing clothes, shedding some more...The movie finally ends but the routine doesn’t. The plot: Adult movie actor Izna (Sunny Leone) turns willing spy after a random one night session with cop Ayan (Arunoday Singh). Hired by the intelligence for the important task of protecting India, yes, you got that right, the country, Ayan takes her to his crazy boss Gurumore

Is Jism 2 paisa vasool for watching Sunny Leone? Yes. That’s probably the only question you need to ask yourself before watching Jism 2 because you definitely aren’t going for the aesthetics (which are good in the film). Don’t be surprised, Jism 2 does have a plot, albeit a flaky one. Izna (Sunny Leone) is a porn star who gets recruited by Intelligence Agency officer Ayaan (Arunoday Singh). Ayaan’s boss (Arif Zakaria) explainsmore

Once upon a time, on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, there lived two titties and two titty-crazy men. Two hours later they all died. This pretty much sums up the story, USP and raison d’etre of Jism 2.

We doubt how many of you will book tickets for this film to see a gripping thriller that will put you on the edge of your seat. Or, to watch how well have the lead actors performed on screen. If you go for Jism 2 today, you will do it just for one ‘performance’— and that is Sunny Leone. So, we will not waste time talking about the film and get down to the topic straightaway. When Mahesh Bhatt stepped into Bigg Boss’ house to offermore

When a movie is marketed as an erotica with a brand (and title) as strong as 'Jism', you do expect body play in motion. However just a woman (Sunny Leone) showing her ample booty in practically ever shot of hers can't possibly make you pick this one up as a fitting tribute to 'Basic Instinct'. Yes, to be fair to the film, it begins with Sunny in a bathtub with a love making scene soon after with a sizzling red lingerie doing the trickmore

Breathing is an operation of inhaling and exhaling. Sunny Leone makes this process a delight as her lovely lady lumps rise and descend like waves in a stormy sea. So the biggest selling point of Jism 2 is that Sunny breathes a lot and offers the same twin reasons to watch this film that she has in her entire filmography. Her indecent exposure has worried many but there are way bigger exposés in store heremore

You see a copy of a Naom Chomsky book and a biography of Che Guevera lying around in the hero’s coffee table. He lives a lonely life in a five-star resort, supposedly in Sri Lanka. From this hideout he plans bomb attacks and assassinations in India. Kabir (Randeep Hooda, in place of the Bhatts’ favourite Emraan Hashmi) is a political assassin. Until recently he used to be a police officer. He had a girlfriend (Sunny Leone)more
