Is Ragini MMS A Steamier Remake Of Paranormal Activity?
Ekta Kapoor may stick to same old stereotype on television, but when it comes to cinema, she surprises us with the variety. After Love Sex Aur Dhokha and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Ekta is gearing up for her paranormal thriller, Ragini MMS.
But from the looks of it, Ekta seems to have taken inspiration from the 2007 horror flick Paranormal Activity. The low budget Hollywood film was about a family who feel a demonic presence in their midst. After a few incidents, they install a camera in the house to check on the mysterious happenings and the story unfolds though these tapes. There are also a few reminders of The Blair Witch Project (1999) which had the hand-held camera approach while ‘Ragini MMS’ will fastforward it to the mobile camera format.
To make it more interesting, Ekta has even ordered the kissing and lovemaking scenes to be redone in order to make them steamier. Ekta believes that that her lead pair, Raj Kumar Yadav and Kainaz Motiwala, are looking awkward in the intimate scenes as they were introduced just a couple of days before the shooting of the scene.
