|Ragini IPS Kannada Movie Review|
Direction: Anand P Raju
Duration: 2 hours 20 minutes
Anand P Raju's Ragini IPS is purely a commercial flick. The formula is not novel, with action queen Malashri having portrayed similar roles earlier. Ragini's hig-octane stunts may be a draw, but the cop thriller scores low on dialogues.
Ragini IPS (Ragini) is a strict cop whose aim is to rid the society of corrupt politicians and goons, and help women lead a decent life. She takes on an MP (Avinash), and his son Jagadish (Narayanaswamy), a corporator who is a womanizer. She brings their misdeeds to the fore, earning their wrath in the process. To take revenge, Jagadish and his goons lay a trap for Ragini and rape her. The story takes a turn when Ragini and a few women catch hold of the rowdy elements and castrate them. But Jagadisha manages to escape. He kidnaps Ragini's sister and attempts to rape her but the braveheart cop is ready with her revenge.
For the first time, Sandalwood heartthrob Ragini had shed her glamour image to don the role of a tough police officer. Narayanaswamy is excellent in his portrayal of the philandering corporator. Music by Farhan Roshan and camerawork by V Nandakumar do not impress much.
