Ragini MMS Review AND More About Ekta Kapoor and Supernatural Stuff

For staters, Ragini MMS is allegedly based on Delhi based girl Deepika's run-in with spookiness and Deepika has been crying herself hoarse over the raunchy scenes having nothing to do with her experience.

Spppooky Factor: Yes, Ragini MMS was initially named Ragginni MMs. Apparently, a serious of supernatural incidents (or ill-timed unfortunate incidents?) caused several several shivers to run down the cast and crew's proverbial back. A consultation with her numerologist confirmed that the name of the movie may also be sending out the wrong signal to the 'bhoots', so Ekta and Co. promptly dropped those extra 'g' and 'n'.

Performances: Ragini MMS stars Raj Kumar Yadav of Love Sex Dhoka fame and Kainaz Motivala (seen as Taniya in Wake Up Sid) as the main protagonists. It is basically a story of a young pair who go on a holiday and plan upon shooting a home video of themselves while they get intimate. Things start getting scary when they discover that they are not alone in this little fun act of theirs. The grainy look of the movie suits the surroundings and only adds to the eerie.

Why Small? After her foray into Bollywood movie production, several of her movies fell flat at the BO. Her friend, advisor and numerologist, Sunita Menon advised Ekta to stop movie production until she was more than 30 years of age..or else make only small budget movies. This caused her to experiment with movies like Love, Sex aur Dhoka, Ragini MMS and Shor in the City. Reportedly her next (controversial) offering would be 'The Dirty Picture' which tells the story of soft porn star Silk Smitha (supposedly being played by Vidya Balan).

Clash of the Siblings: This weekend also saw a clash in family interest. While Tusshar Kapoor is on his mending spree and is coming up with one watchable movie after another, sis Ekta's low budget wonders are also hitting the mark. This weekend will probably be the first time that the siblings will see their interests clashing in the name of movie releases. While Tusshar Kapoor's 'Love You .. Mr Kalakaar' looks like one of the small and sweet offerings of Rajshri Banners, Ragini MMS is also making the right waves.
