‘Ragini MMS’ delivers very little in terms of novelty. Still, in constructing a story around s** and scares, the makers of this film adopt Hollywood’s foolproof B-movie formula and come up with a watchable but ultimately over-long adult movie. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for Ragini MMS. It’s nothing you haven’t seen before, but it keeps you engaged for most of its 100-minute running time.

Ragini MMS is terrifying enough to make you jump on your seat. Let me call it a creepy, spine-chilling date movie! On the whole, RAGINI MMS amalgamates components of horror, paranormal and s** seamlessly. It titillates, it petrifies, but most importantly, it tells you a story which is daunting, imaginative and unconventional. The lethal combo of s** and horror should entice not just the average moviegoer, but also Gen X and the more evolved audience that values and embraces innovative themes and new genres of cinema.

In Ragini MMS the horror does work in places, although the persistent dim light and the grainy video effect tend to get a bit irksome. But the realistic performances by the lead pair more than make up for the lapses. Watch it for its novelty and for the fact that Ragini MMS makes a heady cocktail of s** and horror that’s so very different from run-of-the-mill Bollywood.

There are too many things wrong with Ragini MMS – the jump-cuts are often jarring, there are no subplots, it abounds in all cliches of the horror genre, though the performance of the lead pair is convincing, the others are bad, the ghost may not be wearing a white bed sheet and a candle, but her hazy, ugly witch avatar has been done to death before, the ghost is seen so much that she stops being frightening and the audio during the horror scenes is so loud that instead of the scene, it’s the sound that scares etc.Ragini MMS does not seem to be the work of one or a few creative soul, rather it looks like the handiwork of many heads trying to break creativity together that end up breaking apart the film instead.

If the film’s first half is a sensibly written built-up, the latter half consequentially explodes with utter horror. The dialogues are so situational and conversational — they add to the authenticity, along with infusing humour.And therein lies Ragini’s rub. It’s not conventional horror; it is the chance possibility of such paranoia that is psychologically disturbing. The imperfections of the film lie in the overpowering background tone, which tries to over dramatize the horror.That overlooked, Ekta Kapoor’s new film RAGINI MMS is terrifyingly real, and immensely watchable for the cold fright it inspires.

Ragini MMS’ is strange mix of Hollywood horror influences ( `Blair Witch Project’, `Paranormal Activity’) and old-style Bollywood ghost stories.The film forgets a basic axiom : what you cannot see is far more scary. `Ragini MMS’ borrows its voyeuristic thread ( secretly filming the act), and a face ( Yadav) too heavily from previous Ektaa production ‘Love S** Aur Dhoka’, and goes about showing us too much. A shadow flits up the steps, but you can glimpse the outline of a dhoti. I stopped anticipating fear at this precise point : if it’s a ghost you can see, what’s left to the imagination?

Coming from the makers of LOVE S** AUR DHOKA and inspired by PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, director Pawan Kriplani’s RAGINI MMS is a noble attempt. But it falls short when it comes to execution. The combination of comedy, s** and horror doesn’t quite add up to an entertaining output. The narrative improves significantly in the second half with some engaging sequences. The climax, in particular manages to keep you hooked. But you wish there were a lot more scary sequences. The narrative improves significantly in the second half with some engaging sequences.

  1. nice movie………..dont miss it

  2. If you are a horror movie lover & you have already watched paranormal activity and Blair witch project. You will easily guess that the same concept, it’s from Ekta Kapoor so you should not be expecting greatness and it’s not going to win any points for originality.
    In the climax (where Ragini running in dark forest), Director added some spice of Blair Witch Project, simply Copy/paste.
    BUT . . . . . . . and yes, this is a big BUT . . . . . . . I have to admit that I almost found this to be more entertaining than the movie it was so obviously trying to clone. The pacing, once things get underway, is a bit niftier and things feel a little bit nastier and, consequently, a little bit more "unsafe" for the viewer.
    I really considered this to be a decent use of the same concept. Mind you, I can often be quite an undemanding viewer so bear that in mind.

    See this if you like: Noroi, Paranormal Activity, The Blair Witch Project.

  3. I guess U guys need to be a bit less cynical about Ragini MMS…Yes, the movie has taken a lot of pages from 'Blair Witch Project' and 'Paranornmal Activity'…but U have to give it to the director for just taking the inspiration, and not portraying the way it was in the said flicks…Ekta Kapoor's brilliance is merely that she has kept the quality even in such a low budgeted movie…Sex is a part of life and even moreover if U r a teenager…this movie promises to be about sex but breaks it for the good…It delivers horror just how it is meant to be…Nowhere anything has been overdone, which is why the director hould be congratulated…For a good review urself compare this movie with any last horror movie U saw, and the answer would be obvious…The tag team of Ramsay Brothers and RG Verma has been beaten…This is the scariest Indian movie till date with no ugly face in ur face…

  4. @ Shruti : Rightly said.

    Ragini MMS is neat, and delivers what it promises.
