Ragini MMS 2 starts with the glimpses of its prequel Ragini MMS. These beginning frames with Hanuman Chalisa in the background gave a feeling that the movie might unfold the story in an interesting manner, but unfortunately it does not happen.
Parvin Dabas plays the role of a Film Director Rocks who is going to make movie on Ragini MMS scandal. In Ragini MMS, young couple Ragini and Uday had gone to an isolated house for a weekend. Uday had planned to make an MMS of Ragini in that house, but the MMS went viral. Uday went missing and Ragini ended up in Mental Asylum after that incident. During a Press Conference, Rocks introduces the lead heroine of this ‘Horrex’ (Horror and Sex) film – Sunny (Sunny Leone).

Sunny goes to mental asylum to meet actual Ragini so as to do ‘research’. That makes Rocks comment, ‘Tum Porno se Rituparno kab ban gayi.’ Was this out of good sense of humour?
The whole cast and crew goes to the actual location where Uday and Ragini had gone for the weekend. In spite of ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) warning board, the crew moves to the haunted house for shooting.
This is a very loosely knit film. Director Bhushan Patel disappoints. No logical approach is being taken. The usual tricks of a horror movie are shown here also viz. creaking doors, some movements in the vicinity, some cranky noise, sleepwalking etc. The horror shown is hardly scary.
Lot of skin show by Sunny, dialogues with double meanings (pun intended), so-called erotic moments are there probably to establish this as an adult-horror-thriller movie. Sunny looks hot in the movie but her performance is not great. She has been given skimpy ‘clothes’, laced nightwear, almost all the time cleavage projecting costumes.   
Saahil Prem as Satya, the writer, looked promising in the beginning of the movie, but later on his performance fizzles down along with the script. Parvin Dabas is good. Sandhya Mridul, Anita Hassanandani (part of the crew) and Divya Dutta (as a psychiatrist who handles paranormal cases only) : Oh! What a waste of these talents. Karan Mehra as a TV / Film actor is good. Overall, none of the actors are able to create much magic in the film.
Post interval, relief is there during few frames where the ghost’s story is unveiled. But, then, movie does not deal properly with very basic intention of the evil spirit. Certain questions are unanswered in the movie. What does Sunny find when she looks inside her mouth using a torch, and what does she vomit ? Why Ragini’s family would allow only Satya to write the script for this movie and no one else.Psychiatrist Divya Dutta playing an exorcist is a powerless scene. Very very predictable, no novelty.
Music is composed by Meet Bros Anjjan (Baby Doll), Yo Yo Honey Singh (Chaar Bottle Vodka), Pranay Rijja (Maine Khud ko), and Chirantan Bhatt (Lori of Death). Baby Doll (sung by Kanika Kapoor and Meet Bros Anjjan) and Chaar Bottle Vodka (sung by Yo Yo Honey Singh) are ranked high in the chartbusters. Maine Khud ko (sung by Mustafa Zahid) is bit pleasing to hear. Overall, music is ok.
You can give a miss to this movie if you enjoy horror genre, since no horror at all. Watch it, if you want to enjoy some Sunny Leone Footage.
Ragini MMS 2 is not at all Horrex.
