Here's a bullet point review, not because I'm busy otherwise or lazy. But because, some times, as a viewer you feel you are putting in more effort and energy into a film than the writer/director.

  • Ghost versus host story. yawn
  • Most ridiculous product placement, including those krrish 3.
  • Awful and misplaced jokes on a couple of people from the film fraternity.
  • Absolutely gratuitous skin show and sexual content.
  • Shrieking.
  • More shrieking.
  • "Suspenseful" buildup to either nothingness or sudden show of a horror face.
  • More "Suspenseful" buildup to either nothingness or sudden show of a horror face.
  • Done-to-death typical background score.
  • Use of religion.
  • Promise of a "next" in the series.

Yes, you guessed right. Ragini MMS 2 is like any other B-grade horror film or Horrex (Horror-Sex for the uninclined) as Ragini MMS 2 likes to call itself. Do not be surprised if I copy-paste this review for the next similarly done film in the genre.

Or maybe i should have such a ready review of this nature for each genre. Now, that's a thought.

Thumbs up, by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama : ...RAGINI MMS-2 has ample scares, a generous dose of skin show, a winning soundtrack and of course, a sensuous Sunny Leone to spell S-U-C-C-E-S-S. This second helping is much more scrumptious and delicious than the first. Go, get spooked! ... full review

So-So, by Nikhil Kumar, Apun Ka Choice : ...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.... full review

So-So, by Suparna Sharma, Deccan Chronicle : ...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.... full review

So-So, by Nupur Barua, fullhyd.com : ...Ragini MMS 2 is a commercial movie, unlike its predecessor, Ragini MMS. It has the glitz and the glamour that the first one lacked,... full review

So-So, by Shubhra Gupta, indian express : ...Where it falters is in the lack of novelty in the scenes that feature the spirit, and its bloody trail: there are a couple of scenes that send a shiver down your spine, but then it all becomes familiar.... full review

So-So, by Mohar Basu, koimoi : ...Ragini MMS 2 is far more lucid than Ragini MMS. Though the first half isn’t exactly remarkable, the build up to the second half, the well used titillating show and the tight eldritch climax is what makes the film a worthwhile film here... full review

So-So, by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA : ...Well, there is lots of dum for all those Sunny Leone fans and those who love B-grade type horror films. However the true fans of 'Ragini MMS' might not find the sequel as appreciable to its predecessor and thus would recommend them to watch 'Ragini MMS' instead. Thanks to the chartbuster songs and star power of Sunny Leone, this MMS will definitely go viral over the box office window.... full review

So-So, by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com : ...Despite a half-baked script with cliched masala, Ragini MMS 2 is worth a watch purely for Sunny Leone's performance... full review

So-So, by Bikash Mohapatra., Rediff : ...To sum up Ragini MMS 2 is a better attempt than its prequel and is worth a dekko.... full review

So-So, by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies : ...The film could be disappointing for serious horror buffs. It may not be the scariest film you’ve seen, but with the combination of a few chilling moments, excellent supporting cast and the comedic relief, it certainly is entertaining! ... full review

So-So, by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India : ...For horror-buffs this might not be 'spookilicious' enough, but those looking for a 'sun-sunny' weekend, go lap it up... full review

Thumbs down, by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com : ... looking at this film presented as a HORREX venture, I feel relieved that we have CENSOR BOARD here to stop these people to go over the board following their greedy intentions.... full review

Thumbs down, by Namrata Thakker, Bollywood Life : ...We are sure all Sunny Leone fans are going to throng the theatres irrespective of what we say. So this is for the rest of you – if you want to get entertained and aren’t looking out for a meaningful cinematic experience, then you can indeed watch this one but not with your family.... full review

Thumbs down, Daily Bhaskar : ...Music is peppy and pushes you to dance, however, it doesn’t go with the theme of the film. There is one romantic song in the film, which was not required. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Rony D'costa, Desi Martini : ...Touted as a Horrex( Horror meet Sex) film, watching it requires a bottle of Corex. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Ameet Bhuvan, Desi Martini : ...Bad story bad acting bad film bad everything ... full review

Thumbs down, by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare : ...The reason a lot of people will watch Ragini MMS 2 is thanks to the still growing popularity of the songs, Baby Doll and Chaar botal vodka. The total package – the songs, Sunny Leone erotica and the in-your-face scares – is good for an average horror flick. But there’s absolutely no sense to story or treatment. This is what you call a certified Hollywood knock off... full review

Thumbs down, by Mihir Fadnavis, FirstPost : ...Why someone needs to sully the face of horror cinema and churn out such awful films is a question best left for folks smarter than me. You have no one but yourselves to blame if the words ‘One ticket for Ragini MMS 2’ exit your mouth.... full review

Thumbs down, by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com : ...RAGINI MMS 2 is a cheap thrill with no scary acts or 'steamy scenes'. Sunny Leone has been riding a publicity wave in the media with information and inputs on her that would put a 'research analyst' to shame. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Parmita Uniyal, Hindustan Times : ...Don't watch it if you are a serious horror lover. Go for it if you can appreciate Grand Masti humour and Sunny Leone's body.... full review

Thumbs down, by Karan Talwar, IBN Live : ...The bottomline: Ragini MMS 2 is being touted as a 'horrex' movie - a combination of horror and sex. Although you wouldn't be too far off if you thought it stood for horrible sex. It might be smarter to market this movie as a spoof instead.... full review

Thumbs down, by Faheem Ruhani, india today : ...However, if you are looking at being scared, disappointment is in store. If you looking at being unintentionally amused, than Ragini MMS 2 is the movie to go for.

Thumbs down, by Nandini Ramnath, Live Mint : ...Ragini MMS 2 proves, in no particular order of importance, that it’s a bad idea to replace the director of a smart movie for the sequel... full review

Thumbs down, by Shakti Shetty, MiD DAY : ...Overall, Ragini MMS 2 is not yawn-inducing but quite entertaining. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s a shoddily-made film that could have been better if it hadn’t blindly followed the same old horror film formula -flim... full review

...what about ankhon dekhi ?

@MEETU I was expecting a summarized review , even if it isn't ur taste at least write about the pros and cons . Nevertheless the pointers as mentioned above have compelled me to give it a try . :)

@Divya The only shows of Ankho Dekhi playing in Pune were in far off theaters with no guarantee that the show will be played if there aren't enough people interested. I chose to not take the risk. Though I really want to see the movie.

@Guddu Don't know if you are bored reading, but I am bored of making the same old complaints. If you notice, I don't get too nasty/sarcastic when i don't like a film. So, I don't go overboard in making fun of the film. This self-restriction leaves very little room for creativity and making the review interesting when the film is not.

Oh and @guddu thank you for the compliment! I have been striving for this from the first review I wrote. Irrespective of whether or not I like the film, help the reader make a decision about whether or not they want to watch the film.

Divya

...believe me ...its worth the risk...also liked your self restraint in making fun of bad movies...most of others, including me, might find that difficult...hallmark of a good critic

I was actually expecting nothing out of this film .. but it was better than what i expected... sunny leone did okay acting.. she wasnt horrible.. if u liked ragini mms 1 .. u cud enjoy this one.. i agree it wasnt really scary as such.. but with a group of friends u cud enjoy this movie
