The extramarital affair was the part of many Bollywood movie and Bipasa Basu got a lot of attention with the bold scenes she did, especially the kissing scene on the beach setting the stage on fire. This was the time when Indian cinema was producing bold movies. Bipasha looked very hot in the movie especially her physical intimacy with John. John did a good job and was looking quite mature as an actor and making the critics frown with his strong performance.
Bipasha Basu is the new Bangla name in the list that made amstrong statement with her stunning performance in Bollywood. Bipasha joined the elite league of Kajol, Rani Mukherjee and many more that came from Bangal. John and Bipasha were dating each other from the past three years when the movie was released and one of the reasons both were very much comfortable in the love making scenes. Debutant directors Amit Saxena and Aditya Prakash Singh did a good effort in making it a hit and used the resources well. However, they could not manage to make this movie a big hit and the main reason could be that the story lacks freshness.
Jism scores 6 out of 10 for its genuine effort and presenting the soul of the story with sincerity otherwise there are many others who utilize this topic and end up making a movie that looks like an adult movie.
