Movie Review: Jism 2 (2012)
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? Most importantly, do you reminisce about it? Does it have recall value? Or does one forget about it the moment the show concludes?
Although JISM 2 is the second installment of the 2003 hit that starred Bipasha Basu and John Abraham, there’s a huge disparity between the two films. JISM 2 is visually stunning, the aesthetics are just right, but the voyage of a woman from the lust bazaar who markets desire is far from perfect. The lackluster screenplay of JISM 2 is its biggest undoing!
A porn star is hired by a dashing intelligence officer to become a ‘Honey trap’ for a dreaded assassin. 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.
