The film Jism 2 has managed to offend yet another person, and this time the film's poster has been removed from bus stands and buses. Whether this has proved as a boon in disguise is difficult to say for now.
JISM 2 made headlines right from the day director Pooja Bhatt
announced that she was going to sign Sunny Leone as one of the leads and when Mahesh Bhatt
went into the Bigg Boss House to meet her. The movie was firmly put on the Bollywood map today when NCP MLC Vidya Chavan found the posters to be offensive and asked for it to be removed.
She complained to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner and the Shiv Sena Mayor Sunil Prabhu, who forwarded the letter to the General Manager of the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) who run the public transport in the city. The poster of a girl lying down naked under a wet white cloth was taken down from all the bus stands and also from the BEST buses. However, this did not dampen the spirit of Pooja Bhatt who on her twitter
account and wrote, “You are not a BRAND till a political party has used you for their 2 minutes of fame. Gracias NCP for giving
cult status!” Well! What she acknowleged is actually true as now more and more people would log online and actually have a look at the poster.
On the review front also, things are looking up for the film as most of the people who went on to watch the movie expected a lot of skin-show and hardy any story. However, that is not the case as Mahesh Bhatt has put in some effort in the storyline of the film, and have actually tried to bring in a good story in front of the audience. That the critics are not happy due to the fact that the film that could have been a strong crime thriller was reduced to being Sunny Leone's debut movie. There is a story but not enough assertion of the story to actually convince a hardcore movie binger who wants some sense in a film and doesn't mind the sensuality if it comes with the story.
Whether Jism 2 will cross the new all coveted 100 crores mark is another question for another day. But as for now Jism 2 supporters and fans are claiming that no movie tickets are available for the time being and that Jism 2 is heading towards a hit.
