Movie Review: 'Ragini MMS 2' is sexy and scary

Sunny Leone shines in a clichéd horror flick

The ApunKaChoice movie review of 'Ragini MMS 2'. Horror and Sex is a potent, safe combo. If Horror fails to scare the daylights out of you, Sex can always knock the pants off a hormonally charged viewer. Director Bhushan Patel and producer Ekta Kapoor dish out this formula in their ‘Horrex’ flick 'Ragini MMS 2'.

They succeed on one count. Sex. All thanks to Sunny Leone. They just about pass muster on the horror front.

Ragini MMS was about a young couple’s dirty weekend at a desolate house gone wrong, thanks to a chudail. In the sequel, a filmmaker named Rocks (Pravin Dabbas) decides to tell the story of Ragini and ropes in the hot actress Sunny Leone to play the lead. To make the film real, they land up at the same haunted house to shoot, along with the supporting actors (Sandhya Mridul, Karan Mehra) and writer (Saahil Prem). What starts off as a raunchy shooting schedule with several romps turns into a nightmare when the chudail appears again, in the most unexpected way.

Trailer: Sunny Leone unleashes sex and horror in ‘Ragini MMS 2’

Sunny Leone is in her elements in 'Ragini MMS 2'. She walks about the haunted house in choicest lingerie. She smooches people of both sexes, goes topless in a shower scene, and has steamy make-out sessions in bed, with the orgasmic oohs! and aahs! to boot.

There’s also Divya Dutta playing a psychiatrist out to unravel the mystery of the chudail. As a result we get to know the backstory of the witch and how she came to be the harbinger of death.

'Ragini MMS 2' does pack in a few good scares but not enough to make you jump out of your seat. The scene where Sunny Leone meets Ragini (Kainaz Motivala) at a mental asylum is a loaded one. Director Bhushan Patel also lets you in on the horror slowly, bit by bit, scene by scene, which builds up the anticipation well and works to the film’s advantage.

The film falters when the spookfest unravels full throttle. That’s where something novel, something out-of-the-box would have hit a viewer like the bolt from hell. Alas what one is served is the usual tropes of the genre, the bloodletting, the creepy soundtrack, the macabre make-up that brings Ramsay brothers to mind.

Writers Suhani Kanwar and Tanweer Bookwala trot out a decent enough story with a climax that will find its takers and trashers. The music is another highlight, particularly 'Baby Doll' (watch it here) and 'Char Botal Vodka' (watch it here).

Higher on erotica than eeriness, Ragini MMS 2 is more than a ‘horrex’ film. Given that some of the scares fall flat and turn funny, one can as well call it ‘horrexedy’ (horror, sex, comedy). Be that as it may, the film is an entertaining watch for sure.

Watch it for Sunny Leone, if you must.
