Ragini MMS was one of the most successful films of 2011 and now after three years, producer Ekta Kapoor brings you its sequel which is titled ‘Ragini MMS 2’. The Film was promoted as Bollywood's first erotic horror flick in which the former adult performer Sunny Leone was touted to scorch the celluloid with her sensous scenes. It wasn't just the sensuality the movie was marketed on, Ekta had claimed that Ragini MMS 2 would be the finest Bollywood horror movie. So, to what extent the movie has delivered on its promises let's analyse in our Ragini MMS 2 movie review.
The story of this film starts where the ‘Ragini MMS’ had finished. A crazy movie director decides to make a film on Ragini and her MMS scandal. He ropes in Sunny Leone as the movie lead and they decide to shoot in the exact same location where the Ragini MMS scandal had occurred.
Despite knowing that the house is haunted, the crew reach the location and start shooting for their film. Slowly, day by day things start getting worse for Sunny and her team as they face some uncanny and freaky accidents.
The rest of the story is about what happens to Sunny and the rest of the crew, and will they be able to survive this haunted house and come out safe.
Undoubtedly, Sunny Leone is the major attraction of ‘Ragini MMS 2’. Those who go to the theatres expecting to see Sunny’s glamour and sensuous body, will not be disappointed at all.
Sunny provides enough masala for the viewers and surprisingly, she seems to have improved her acting skills when compared to her ‘Jism 2’ days. Divya Dutta and Sandhya Mridul Singh’s are decent in supporting roles. Another major advantage of film is its music, as both the tracks have been chart busters and they also come in at the correct point in the film’s narrative.
The second half of the film is where the film starts to get interesting, and the last twenty minutes along with some horror scenes are quite good. The manner in which a complete story has been weaved around a film’s unit is convincing. The film’s climax forms the major crux of the film and as promised the film ends on a decent high.
The first half of the film is ordinary and only plays on Sunny Leone’s star status while just introducing the other characters. The so-called spooky moments in the first half are also very ordinary.
Logic in certain points in the first half goes missing, and the manner in which Sunny is being possessed by a devil does not have clarity. Horror films have always been successful for their spooky moments. Though ‘Ragini MMS 2’ has these moments, they are not that scary and convincing. If these thrills could have been more gory and scary, the film would have gone to another level.
‘Ragini MMS 2’ is technically brilliant. The cinematography, which is an integral to the success of a horror film, is decent and captures the haunted house realistically. Sunny’s love making scenes have also been shot aesthetically.
As mentioned above, the music of ‘Ragini MMS 2’ will be one of the major reasons for its success. Both the tracks are top class and blend nicely in the film while the background score by Amar Mohile is also convincing.
The screenplay could have been a lot better as some unnecessary scenes in the first half could have been chopped off to make this film crisper. The dialogues are OK and the editing is quite good.
The make-up and prosthetics used for the actors is top class. Director Bhushan Patel manages to nicely tap into the horrex genre and has used Sunny’s oomph factor as the base for this horror film convincingly.
