Story Line: This movie possesses three types of diverse ingredients. It is a thriller and at the same time, it is romantic with ample amount of horror elements. It is a sequel to earlier blockbuster of 2011, which was a spooky one, ‘Ragini MMS’. The 3D format of this movie adds a special flavor to the horror.
The film starts off from where its prequel Ragini MMS ended which revolved around a young couple Ragini and BABLU who went to an isolated house for a dirty weekend and the creepy and paranormal happenings that took place to them there. BABLU had planned to make an MMS scandal of Ragini in that house. But the MMS shot goes viral, BABLU goes missing and Ragini after that incident became lunatic and ended up in a mental hospital. The Ragini MMS scandal catches the attention of a filmmaker who plans to make a film on it. He casts a Bollywood actress in his film to play the lead, Ragini. The film crew goes to shoot the film in the same house where the MMS scandal took place leading to further horrible and creepy happenings.
My Gut Feel and comments:
These days film banners are trying their best to in cash their old film’s success. Ragini MMS seems to be no difference. Ragini mm2 was an honest effort and was well made horror movie wiith in its limitations. With ragini mms 2 it looks like ekta kapoor increased the scale of production and spend lot in presentation, promotion and marketing however history says most of the time these sequels lacks substance. This seems to be the same case with Ragini mms 2 where I am getting the sense that it is week substance and would not able to create the magic ragini mms did.
Preparing a sequel itself seems to be defensive move where production houses go extravagant however most of the time fall flat.
I am giving this movie 2.5 star out of 5 stars, four day before the release.
