The Ragini MMS movies belong to the horror-erotica genre, or 'horrex' (horror+sex), as pointed out in the beginning of the movie itself. This genre is quite well-known in Hollywood with plenty of movies being churned out and made famous in Bollywood by the Ramsay movies. Ekta Kapoor has delved into a very tricky space as she is known to do so and dared to go mainstream with it.
Ragini MMS is about a director Rocks (Parvin Dabas) who wants to make a movie based on the happenings of the first movie where the boy has a gruesome death and the girl gets admitted to the mental asylum. Rocks want to make a big splash with little known actors with the big draw being Sunny Leone (as herself), being the main protagonist (similar to what the film-makers actually did with this movie). Satya (Saahil Prem), the writer of the film, insists on shooting the movie in the exact same haunted house to give a more authentic feel to their movie.
Well, the movie obviously tries to scare you by relying more on sound-effects to complement the visuals, inspired from the RGV school of film-making! Will the visuals scare you without the loud sound effects? Could have been worth a try, but then it wouldn't have been able to live upto the movie's promise of cheap thrills! Dialogues get really cheesy sometimes, perhaps, the makers of this movie have done it on purpose.
The movie is high on erotic content as promised and Sunny Leone is effortless at doing so. She raises the temperature whenever on screen, bringing out howls and whistles from the crowd! Surprised to see the cinema almost full for an early morning show, going by which, it seems the movie will definitely rake in the moolah! The acting in the movie is nothing special (for those who really care) and the music is already popular. Rest of the cast act mainly as fillers and it also includes a cameo by Divya Dutta as a hotshot psychiatrist from New York with a keen interest in Ragini's (Kainaz Motivala) case. Old Ekta Kapoor favourite, Anita Hassanandani is also there, looking very unfamiliar in a goth-like avatar!
The movie is predictable and Sunny states in the movie too that she wants to do 'character-driven roles' more, similar to what she has announced recently in the press. Well, it won't be easy for her to shed the 'pornstar' image after watching this movie.
Overall, if you don't mind watching two hours of cheap thrills, cheesy dialogues and erotica on the big screen, then you should definitely not miss out on this movie! We feel that Ragini MMS will get Claps from the masses and Slaps from the critics.
