  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

Pooja Bhatt’s Sunny Leone starrer, `Jism 2`, was expected to embark on a good start thanks to the erotic thriller theme and some very good promotion. However, the shoddy direction and weak script marred it’s chances. The start can be termed as good to decent (50-70 percent), but the mixed feedback, titling towards negative does not auger well for the Bhatt venture. And hence cracks were apparent during the latter shows of the first day itself . Thankfully the reasonable budget may make it a safe proposition for all concerned.
