Jism Review: Hindi films have seldomly shown erotica, maybe in Feroz Khan and Raj kapoor films a bit but Jism took it forward. The film was promoted as an erotica film. The film is similar to Body Heat. Jism was Pooja Bhatt’s first production, starts well, the John-Bipasha scenes are well handled, the erotic scenes too are well handled, the twist happens when Gulshan enters the frame, the scenes involving his murder are well handled and twists and turns do startle you. However the pace is too slow especially in the first half, while some characters could be better handled, the end too is flawed raising questions regarding Bipasha’s change in character
Direction by Amit Saxena is decent, music by MM Kreem is good, Awarapan is good, Jaadu Hai Nasha and other songs are fab, Jism took Shreya Goshal’s career to new level. John Abraham in his debut did a good job though his voice is dubbed yet he does a good job sadly people only noticed his looks. Bipasha Basu go a sex symbol tag with this film, her voice again was dubbed for 4th time since Ajnabee, Raaz, Gunaah. Her expressions were too much at times. Vinay Pathak and Ranveer Shorey play their pars well, those days they were not so famous Gulshan Grover is okay while Anahita Oberoi is good. Overall, Jism is good.
