Ragini MMS is a sensuous paranormal film, shot as in
It is a new trend which even the big studios in
Bollywood adapt to - come up with a fresh concept,
gather new comers and shoot the entire movie in one
schedule making it possible to finish the film on a shoe
string budget. Spend a load some on publicity that the
initial weekend itself fetches them back the whole
investment and the flick is then declared as a hit.
Ekta Kapoorís Balaji Films has taken only 25 days to
shoot and cost them less than tenth an average bollywood
The quintessential couple, Ragini and Uday, set out to
have a dirty weekend at a friend's farmhouse on the
outskirts of Mumbai.
Ragini is a brash
uptown girl ever ready to express her sexual demands. Yes,
she is close to Uday and knows him well enough to go out
with him on an overnight excursion.
The story is simple, Ragini and Uday go for a weekend of
fun to a friendís secluded farm house, in the forests,
just outside of Mumbai. As the couple, cuddle on the sofa,
their bag of food unwraps and worms suddenly come out of
it. Thinking it could be some stale food which could be
supplied by the fast food joint, they neglect it.
Unexpectedly, Raginiís friend and her boyfriend drop in
for a surprise visit. Uday is a bit uneasy as he wanted to
record a video without Raginiís knowledge of them having
sex, as deputed by his business contact who would later on
give a break to fulfil Udayís dream of becoming an actor.
Piya's boyfriend was told that
the house belonged to a lady who was accused to be a witch
and then killed by her family. However, she returned for
revenge as a ghost and killed her entire family.

The outcome is better-quality than expected. Ragini MMS
is a spine-chilling date movie which really scares you. An
unconventional story mixed with horror and sex, and this
is what it makes it different from the usual horror stuff
Raj Kumar Yadav (who was the lover boy in Ekta Kapoorís
Love Sex Aur Dhokha) is the chap Ė Uday, who sprinkles his
conversation with gaalis and cuss words. He wants to make
a career in films and is promised a big break if he
manages to exploit his girl friend and shoot the sex
intimacies between them while on a weekend picnic on a
deserted farmhouse in the midst of forest in the outskirts
of Mumbai City.
Luckily for Uday, the visiting
couple leaves soon after they have had a tiny bash of
music, dance and beer. While departing the couple mention
about some weird feeling moments in that house. Uday
ignores it as he is bent on completing his mission.
The scary adventure begin with Uday's hair being pulled
and feels someoneís presence. Then onwards there are
several attacks by an unseen force that drive Uday and
Ragini crazy. They realize that the house is haunted by a
ghost who is out to avenge the troubles and gruesome acts
of people meted out on that innocent person in the past.
The weekend getaway quickly changes gears as they find
themselves in a house that has been rigged with cameras in
Bigg Boss style.
The cameras that were meant to capture love-making scenes
are now a witness to something that is beyond the realm of
human understanding... something metaphysical...
