Bhatt naturally, again! The musical success of JANNAT 2 this year showed the consistency of Bhatt camp and JISM 2, sequel to JISM, reaffirms the faith in the esteemed banner of delivering out an equally commercially viable music again. JISM 2, the launching pad of porn-star Sunny Leone in Hindi filmdom, has already stormed the headlines for its overtly bold subject and music too is expected to be luminous, as it has always been in Bhatt camp movies, for its explicitly experimental treatment.
    
It may be recalled that JISM, a well-conceived erotica had tremendous musical score ("Jadoo Hai Nasha Hain", "Awaarapan Banjarapan") by experienced campaigner M.M. Kreem that rocked the charts. This time Pooja Bhatt has crossed many boundaries in getting internationally consequential musical names in the credits. From trying out with the reliable Paki rock talent Ali Azmat to budding Pakistani rock group RUShk and Maldives popular pop-singer Unoosha, the album pitches as much as five composers. It sounds like a potpourri of genres, styles and moods. Musically speaking, it sounds pretty resounding and enterprising! Will this work for JISM 2? Let's check out...

Tenderly drilled piano notes in an enchanting eloquence of guitar strumming make a beautiful compassion with KK's mesmerizing soft tones as they together enlighten the spirits of a delightful romantic communion in brilliantly composed "Abhi Abhi". It's a gem of composition by newcomer Arko Pravo Mukherjee, where the sensuousness, pain, joy and compassion are displayed in tender flows. Whether its brilliance of voice quality, impeccable vocal throws or variations from low notes to high notes, KK delivers one of the finest soft-rock ballad of this year and might get felicitated for being Best Male Playback Singer" of the year. The second major highlight is the brilliant amalgam of light-hearted percussions that plays a catalyst in energizing the tempo of the tenderly played arrangements. Arko's meticulous toil is laudable and so is the lyricists (Munish Makhija and Arko Pravo Mukherjee's) sensuously driven poetic words ("Teri baazuon mein meri chahatein samaaye, Teri dhadkano ko meri dhadkanein sunaaye, Teri khwahishon se meri khwahishey riha hain, Teri karwaton se meri dastaan bayaan hai, Kya sukoon kya junoon humnawaz...") that makes this a brilliant soundtrack. Akriti Kakkar (wrongly credited as Shreya Ghoshal in CD) joins KK's enlightening vocals in the "duet" version. It kick-starts off with similar tonality where huskier tones of Akriti's voice oozes up erotica feel and adds melodramatic shades to the track. Arko makes a commendable debut in Bollywood with "Abhi Abhi", and one expects it to be a big sizzler on big screen. Chartbuster!!!

Few weeks back, it was pleasing to hear a different avatar of Sonu Kakkar in MTV Coke Studio (season 2) where she collaborated well with Vishal Dadlani and Clinton Cerejo in rendering out an impressive live performance in the form of "Madari". "Yeh Kasoor", a poignantly pitched sentimental brings out this singing version of Sonu Kakkar, a songstress who was better known for singing screechy raunchy item-songs. This Mithoon composition brings out his patent style of "lounge-mixing" effects that works optimally in this situational setting. The prelude has intimidating clarinet notes that sets out a decorum of subtle romanticism that later get webbed through reverberating sound effects and engaging lyrics. Mithoon's invigorating lyrics are equally impressive and add more soul to this sensuously-pitched solo track. Impressive!!!

Anyways, Izna has a personal score to settle with Randeep as he had walked out on her which forced her into prostitution (I guess). So she agrees. The game then is all about her trying to steal some important information from his home.

Randeep is completely wasted in this film; a fine actor in a terrible mess. Sunny Leone, sorry to say, has no oomph quotient. She is being promoted like this toy or gadget one must buy or watch. But within the first minute of her on-screen, she is a huge turn-off! Every dialogue in different situations is said with the same disinterest. Even a mannequin has some sizzle. Now don't get me wrong. I have nothing against Leone, just that her presentation by the Bhatts is super flawed.

To watch it is to... form your own tagline!

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 lead and goes overboard in getting the busty babe thrust her cleavage (having veins, like those on biceps) to the unsuspecting viewer. It's not titillating, it's repulsive.

When all that has to be seen is shown, there's nothing sexy left in it. Being a woman, Pooja Bhatt should have known that better. There's a vast difference between being erotic and erratic.

For the record, the credit for the story goes to Mahesh Bhatt. Till the end, you are wondering what the story is. It goes like this. Izna (Sunny Leone making her debut) is a prostitute. She is asked to help the Intelligence Bureau to kill one of their own officers, Randeep Hooda, who has gone on a killing spree within his department. The reason she has been selected is because at one point in time, she was his lover. I'm not even getting into the screenplay of that episode, of how they meet and how they mate! It's hilarious.
