This week four films are slated to hit the theatres – Ragini MMS 2, Gang of Ghosts, Ankhon Dekhi and Lakshmi. While the Sunny Leone starrer has managed to grab attention, there is hardly any buzz around the other three releases. Will this help Ragini MMS 2 to pull in crowd to the theatres? Read on to find out…
The wait is finally over. Ekta Kapoor’s much-talked about film Ragini MMS 2 starring former Canadian pornstar Sunny Leone will release this Friday. Balaji head honcho and her leading lady have extensively promoted their upcoming horror film which is the sequel to 2011 hit film Ragini MMS. To ensure the film catches the attention of the youth, the makers have also incorporated a special Yo Yo Honey Singh number – Chaar bottle vodka. Besides the Punjabi rapper, the song features the very sexy Sunny who has up the glam quotient in the peppy club number with her seductive moves. The Honey Singh song is already a rage amongst the masses but will it help Ragini MMS 2 to get cash registers ringing? Coz besides Ekta’s film, Satish Kaushik’s horror comedy Gang of Ghosts, Rajat Kapoor’s Ankhon Dekhi and Nagesh Kukunoor’s Lakshmi will also hit the screens this week. Also, Kangana Ranaut’s Queen is still going steady at the ticket windows. So will the Sunny-Ekta jodi manage to create hungama at the box office with their horror-cum-sleaze show flick Ragini MMS 2? Or will multi release Friday and Kangy’s chick flick play a spoilsport for Bhushan Patel’s directorial venture?
Exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi says, “Out of the four releases on the coming Friday, Ekta Kapoor’s Ragini MMS clearly has the edge! The two factors that should ensure a great opening are – 1) Great music, which has caught on fabulously among the youth and 2) Erotica – A theme that gets a big chunk of the mass movie going public excited! More so, the brand Ragini MMS is synonymous with great horror on the silver screen and these elements should ensure that the producers laugh their way to the banks. Among the other releases, gang of ghosts can be interesting because Satish Kaushik has had a track record to making entertaining films for a wide, generic audience. Even though it lacks star value, it could pick up and do fine with a good word of mouth.”
Even wethinks Baby doll Sunny’s sexy avatar will overshadow the other three films at the BO. While we don’t know if the film will enter the elite Rs 100 crore club, for now we are betting on Ragini MMS2 considering it stars the once-upon-a-time adult actor turned Bollywood starlet Sunny Leone.
