Review: Jism 2 [233/365]

The life of man upon earth is warfare.
Job 7:1

As a movie, Jism 2 starts off with a lot of promise- of raw unbridled sex and now, its time for the cliche- Promise made to be broken.

For a movie that was touted to be an erotic thriller that truly reflects the times, the movie has only one USP- Sunny Leone.
While the movie starts with a pretense of a gripping story, that charade is as quickly abandoned as Sunny does her clothes.
The dialogues are painful. Acting ridiculous.
While nobody is going to debate how stunningly beautiful Sunny is, all she really does is breathe heavy and arch her back. For a real life porn star who is good at her trade, the utter lack of expressions on her face is disappointing.

One of the flaws in a movie like this is when the makers want to prove a point.
The Bhatts proclaimed how this will be the most erotic thrillers India has ever seen and it is quite apparent that they wanted to prove that point. Within seconds of the movie starting, we see Sunny riding Dumbo. The scene is terrible and could have been a lot better had the makers truly exploited the talents of its star. But alas, I doubt if any modern man will have his spirits lifted by the way the movie begins.

The characters in this movie are very tame. I would have loved to see darker villains.
It is obvious that the Bhatts did a lot of traveling. Not that anyone's complaining since the locales are stunning.
The costumes that the lead lady wears is worth a mention. It appears like Pooja Bhatt shopped almost entirely at a lingerie store to clothe Sunny.
The first installment of Jism worked purely because the chemistry that the lead couple shared in real life percolated through the movie. The only thing that worked this time was the fact that the movie's star real life profession. If the movie made any money at all, it is purely because people wanted to see how much of the actor they would be allowed to see without the guilt of been caught watching porn. I doubt if anyone will want to watch it a second time.

Note to the makers: Umm... nevermind.
Note to Sunny: Get into an acting academy. Pronto!
Its a cleavage-fest. Unimpressed. I know I was yawning exactly 1 minute 15 seconds into the movie.
Would I recommend this movie? If you are into hardcore porn, this movie is demure. If you are into softcore porn, this movie is demure. There is simply no semblance of a plot by the time the movie reaches half time. Watch this only if you want to see an incredibly beautiful lady in nothing but corsets for three hours without having to duck into the theatre.

Ah! finally I am done. Things that I do to myself so that I can review and warn nubile minds.

My Rating: 5.0 (Barely made it too)

What does the ratings mean?
0-4  : Not worth your presence in the same zip code as the TV/Theater.
5-7  : Err... the movie is pretty, but it's definitely missing something. A storyline, that is.
8-10: 'Drop-the-dishes, stop-the-sex, jaw-dropping, that-is-incredible' 2 hours of movie experience
