Delivers More Than Promised

Till date, Ragini MMS 2 has been pitched as a HORREX affair that has ample dose of horror and sex on display so as to keep a viewer engaged. Well, the makers (intentionally?) chose to hide one aspect of the film which actually turns out to be an added highlight I.e. humour. One was least expecting comical undertones in the Sunny Leone starrer and though she is not the one doing comedy, her presence ensures that men (and even women) around her drool enough to end up throwing a wisecrack or comical anecdotes. With genuine light hearted moments peppering the film's narrative, both in first as well as second half, Ragini MMS 2 succeeds in bringing the three genres together - Horror, Sex and Humour.
The film is a true sequel to Ragini MMS and the good part is that when the back story of the ghost and its various acts is revealed, it is quickfire engaging and genuinely convincing. Considering the fact that there were no plans for a sequel when Ragini MMS was made, it is commendable that the writing team actually managed to merge the story lines of both films so seamlessly.
While one manages to appreciate this fact a little later into the film, it is Sunny Leone who fetches your attention in every scene that she appears. From someone who was heaving needlessly in Jism 2 to being an actor who can now keep a frame stable, Sunny indeed emerges as a quick learner.
As for her 'special skills' gained via a stream of adult videos, audience won't be disappointed as she does everything possible under the regulation of the Indian Censor Board. So Sunny gets under the shower, makes out with her co-star (Karan Mehra, indulges in a lesbian kiss (with Sandhya Mridul), walks around the house in lingerie and shares dirty bed room talks with her director (Parvin Dabas), hence ensuring that a viewer can't really take his eyes away. The stage setting is fine too with the song Baby Doll coming right at the film's beginning, hence setting up the mood.
Same holds true w.r.t. horror too as director Bhushan Patel brings on spooky elements at regular intervals, hence not deviating from the core of the film. This means there are clichés aplenty, what with creaking doors, ghost in the mirror, undead children, shadows behind the doors, whispers in the night and stuff alike arriving at regular intervals. Though this does become a little irksome at times, you do cheer for the film's climax which is simply outstanding.
