Release Date: August 3, 2012
Star Value: Perhaps for the first time in the history of Indian cinema, a female debutant has added plenty of star value to the movie way before its release. The fact that she is a porn star with killer looks is the reason for this, apart from her stint in the television show Bigg Boss. The Sunny euphoria coupled with the presence of known faces of good performers like Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh, brings high star value for Jism 2.
Hype: The hype for Jism 2 started ever since Mahesh Bhatt decided to cast Sunny in the film. The hype, which kept on increasing as the shoot neared completion, reached the maximum after the promos and posters of the movie were released. Due to this, a large section of audience will queue up for the movie for obvious reasons. But apart from the hot factor, the promos also promise an intense thrill ride.
Music: The title song ‘Yeh Jism Hai To Kya’ has managed to impress. Other songs like ‘Abhi Abhi’ and ‘Yeh Kasoor’ are also well received. The music has also helped in creating excitement for the movie.
Jism 2 will get a good to very good opening at the box-office, largely due to the Sunny Leone factor. Although the movie has a chance of clicking both in single screens as well as multiplexes, it will score more in the latter as it is a metro product.
What will affect the film’s collections is that the keenly anticipated Gangs Of Wasseypur 2 and the hugely awaited Ek Tha Tiger are slated to release on August 8 and 15 respectively. Hence, it is vital for the film to impress initially and earn as much as possible in the first five days. All in all, Jism 2 is a safe bet due to its low budget.
