The Indian film, 'Jism', is a Pooja Bhatt production, which is directed by debutant Amit Saxena. The film is also co-produced by Sujit Kumar Singh and written by Mahesh Bhatt. 'Jism: The Dark Side of Desire' is a daring attempt by actress-turned-producer Pooja Bhatt and her father Mahesh Bhatt to defy the Bollywood stereotypes and give something new to movie buffs.
The film 'Jism' is slightly inspired by the Hollywood flick 'Double Indemnity'. One highlight of the movie is its gripping plot that moves in a singular direction without straying off into unnecessary sub-plot and 'eye-catching' sequences forced to lend an extra zing to the story. Another strong point of the movie is the way in which Bipasha's character is developed. Throughout the movie she is shown as an ambitious but vulnerable girl who is married to a man she doesn't love. But her reversal face comes up in the second half when her true nature and character is revealed and is likely to stun the viewers.
