Ragini (MMS 2) is a scary good lady

This lady is a disturbingly good, bad-ass actor in a sophisticated role that will tickle your gray cells (you must have heard the joke about enjoying the interviews in Playboy, right?) A nice, low-profile, movie for you and your close friend.

Not recommended as a family movie, but then with the daadis and naanis becoming more and more hip in front of our eyes, who knows?

Failed film director announces a new project starring a porn star, Sunny Leone (played by Sunny Leone, of course), in the lead role and an ensemble of TV actors. The film, based on the story of Ragini whose MMS went viral three years ago, is to be shot in the same haunted house, Patwardhan Villa, where Ragini’s MMS was shot. Ragini, since who has since been the inmate of Room No. 26 of a mental institute, either scratches the walls of her room, or sits on her bed rocking and mumbling to herself.

Rocks, Sunny, Rocks’ film writer Satya Kumar (Sahil Prem), a failed novelist who takes all this chudail business seriously, and the film’s two other actors, Monali (Sandhya Mridul), a sidey actress in search of the casting couch, and Maddy (Karan Mehra), a horny TV hero, land up in the house despite the warning put up by the ASI about staying away from the area after sunset and before sunrise. 

As the shooting of Rocks’ film begins, we are in the company of interesting and believable characters. And while we while we laugh at and with them, we also see a shadow lurking behind, or the sudden, quiet appearance of a child. We are privy to much more than them, and that's part of the thrill.

I haven’t enjoyed getting scared for years like I did today.

Director Patel has very cleverly mounted on screen a script which is packed with jokes, ghatiaya dialogue, dirty talk and even a female orgasm.

Sunny Leone has never been used more effectively and sensibly than she has been used here. And when I say used, I mean in the proper exploitative way as a hot actress is used in a B-Grade flick. She gets to wear all the sexy lingerie you wanted to see her in, and thrusts her stuff repeatedly. Luckily she’s supported by the very able team of actors, Sandhya Mridul and Karan Mehra, without whom the film would have been a big bore. They make us laugh before the director says bhau!
