Mirchi review: Sunny Leone is the saving grace of Jism 2

Thriller sequel fails to excite.

In this thriller directed by Pooja Bhatt, a cop (played by Arunoday Singh) is assigned to use Izna (Sunny Leone) as bait to capture the terrorist Kabir (Randeep Hooda), Izna's former lover. In her Bollywood debut, the Canadian-Indian Leone acts as an incentive for the audience, too – she is the saving grace of this movie, which features a messy screenplay, no real plot and subpar performances from the male actors. It's not exactly the star-making turn the industry expected from her, so here's hoping Leone chooses her next project with caution.
