Pretty on the Inside
Pretty on the Inside is the debut studio album by American alternative rock band Hole, released on September 17, 1991, in the United States on Caroline Records. Produced by Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, Gumball frontman Don Fleming, the album was Hole's first major label release after the band's formation in 1989 by vocalist and guitarist Courtney Love and lead guitarist Eric Erlandson. Blending elements of punk rock and sludge metal, the album features distorted and alternating guitar compositions, screaming vocals from Love, "sloppy punk ethics," a style which the band would distance themselves from, opting for a less abrasive sound on subsequent releases. Love's lyrics on the album are narrative and abstract, detailing issues of violence, self-realization, womanhood; the record was dedicated to Rob Ritter of the Los Angeles punk rock acts The Gun Club. Pretty on the Inside was well received by alternative music critics, garnering favorable reviews in Spin, NME, The Village Voice, it received considerable commercial success in the United Kingdom, where the record's lead single, "Teenage Whore", entered the UK Indie Chart at number one in September 1991.
It has sold over 200,000 copies in the United States and gained a contemporary cult following among punk rock fans, has been cited as a seminal influence for songwriters and musicians such as Brody Dalle and Scout Niblett. Despite its critical acclaim, frontwoman Courtney Love has, in years, referred to the album as "unlistenable". Vinyl LP versions of the album have been reissued several times. Hole formed in 1989 in Los Angeles, California when frontwoman Courtney Love, after years of fruitless attempts at forming bands, bought her neighbor Lisa Roberts a bass and posted an advertisement in a local paper stating: "I want to start a band. My influences are Big Black, Sonic Youth, Fleetwood Mac." Eric Erlandson, along with over a dozen other musicians, answered the ad. Love said that she knew Eric was "the one" as soon as they met, that he had a "Thurston Moore quality about him" that she liked. Erlandson said that early in Hole's career, they were more interested in "making noise" than achieving success and before drummer Caroline Rue joined the band that they used no percussion whatsoever.
It was not until Love and Erlandson heard Mudhoney's "Touch Me I'm Sick" that they began to think about taking the band to the next level. Early on, the band was most influenced by the New York No Wave art and music scene of the 1980s, which included visual artists, such as Richard Kern, as well as scuzz rock acts, such as Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore; the band featured a third guitarist in its early days, first Mike Geisbrecht and Errol Stewart. After the band's first four shows, the original lineup disbanded and Hole recruited bassist Jill Emery in 1990. In the documentary film Not Bad for a Girl, in the erotic dancing industry for years prior, said that she worked as a stripper to help support the band in its early incarnation, she cited her work as a dancer as being one of many inspirations for the songs on Pretty on the Inside: "I was blonde, wore makeup, had to support my band by dancing, had to play this ridiculous archetype at work... so I took, you know, high heels and white pumps, I had a wiglet—I just took that and messed with it."
Hole had released two singles, "Retard Girl" on Sympathy for the Record Industry and "Dicknail" on Sub Pop. According to Love, she had wanted to release the album on Sympathy for the Record Industry, but was "talked into" signing on with Caroline Records. After signing, Love sought Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon to produce the album. In January 1991, Love sent her a letter, a Hello Kitty barrette, copies of the band's early singles, mentioning that the band admired Gordon's work and appreciated "the production of the SST record". Gordon agreed on the condition that Gumball frontman Don Fleming, assist; the band entered Music Box Studios in Los Angeles with Gordon and Fleming in March 1991, worked on the album for one week. During the recording sessions for the album, Love purportedly gargled whiskey and excessively smoked cigarettes before takes to give a raw edge to her vocals. Fleming stated he was impressed by Love's "focus and intensity," while recording vocals for one song when Love "literally ripped her clothes off while she sang".
"Courtney was amazing", said Fleming. "She was the most gung-ho person I've met. She was going to make the greatest record ever—I like that attitude in the studio. Courtney was like'Let's go, fuckers', I loved that." In a interview, Fleming said: Courtney was great at the time—it was before she knew Kurt. She gave 180%. I've worked with some people. With Courtney, there was no attitude, she was gonna give it all. And she did and it was impressive to me... I loved the whole band; that early lineup of Hole—I felt they were the real deal. They were Hollywood misfits—all of them. I felt it captured what they were. Gordon said that Love "was either charming and nice or screaming at her band" but that she was "a good singer and entertainer and front person." The music of Pretty on the Inside is has been noted by critics for its abrasive instrumentation and arrangements which "bury" its melodies "buried" underneath. The album's sonic elements are influenced by Los Angeles hardcore punk as well as New York's no wave scene.

Ragini MMS 2 is a 2014 Indian erotic-horror film directed by Bhushan Patel and co-produced by Jayasinh Gupta and Sunil Maurya Pradhaan under Balaji Motion Pictures and ALT Entertainment. The movie is the sequel to the 2011 horror movie Ragini MMS. Ragini MMS 2 features sunny Leone and Ship Prem in lead roles in a continuation of the plot from the prequel. Unlike the first film, the movie is not shot in a found footage format; the film was a major commercial success. The film begins. Ragini's MMS tape has gone viral - along with rumours of the house's haunted nature, where the MMS was filmed; this catches the attention of Rocks who decides to make a movie on the haunting. He signs an ex-porn star, Sunny Leone as the lead actress and decides to shoot the movie in the same house where the MMS was recorded. Sunny, who takes an instant liking to the script, seeks permission to meet the real Ragini, to get a better in-depth look of the character she wants to portray, but the meeting goes horribly wrong.
The cast and crew arrive at the haunted house to shoot and strange things begin to happen to Sunny. Elsewhere, Dr. Meera Dutta, a psychiatrist who specialises in cases for which science has no answers, takes up Ragini's case. After going through old news paper clipping and video tapes of Ragini, she finds the truth regarding the haunting, she finds out that the ghost haunting the house, in life was a married woman with two daughters and a son. She loved her son more than her daughters since she had conceived him after much difficulty and praying. One day, the boy and his two sisters were playing hide and seek when the boy slipped into a well and drowned; this drove his mother insane and caused her to embark on a desperate quest to resurrect him from the dead. A Baba who claimed to perform black magic arrived and convinced her the only way to bring her son back was to sacrifice both of her daughters; the insane mother agreed and the Baba chopped off the daughters' heads. He put the sword in her hands, told her to close her eyes, chant.
While she did that he stole all of her money and ran. When the villagers arrived, they assumed that the mother was practising witch craft and punished her by hanging her from a tree, stoning her, burning her alive; the woman survived dropped from the tree, after cursing them all, killed herself by stabbing herself in the neck with the rattle-toy her son used to play with. Dr. Dutta rushes to the shooting location to inform the cast and crew to abandon their shooting and leave the house immediately, but it is too late as the ghost has possessed Sunny and started killing the film's cast and crew by either luring them into having sex or killing them by catching them off guard. Only the scriptwriter Satya and actress Monali are left alive; as Dr. Dutta and Satya attempt to drive the ghost out of Sunny, Monali gets killed. Afterwards, when Satya accidentally steps on the rattle toy with which the woman committed suicide prior to becoming a ghost, it causes Sunny temporary pain, thereby forces the ghost to temporarily leave Sunny.
Dr. Dutta urges Satya to destroy it; the ghost is destroyed along with the rattle. And Sunny, Satya and Dr. Dutta leave the house, having exorcised the ghost and solving the mystery behind the haunting. At the end of the movie a rocking chair is shown rocking back and forth and a child's voice is heard, signifying that there is still a ghost in the house. Sunny Leone as Herself Raju Bhai as Satya Kumar Anita Hassanandani as Gina Sandhya Mridul as Monali Karan Veer Mehra as Maddy Parvin Dabas as Rocks Divya Dutta as Dr. Meera Dutta Soniya Mehra as Tanya Kapoor Karan Taluja as Kunal Khanna Geetanjali Kulkarni as the Witch / Ghost Kainaz Motivala as Ragini Yo Yo Honey Singh as the special appearance in song "Chaar Botal Vodka" Sunny Leone, who plays female lead in Ragini MMS 2, says this movie is more commercial in nature than its prequel. Director Bhushan Patel says that there is a lot more sex, scares and a lot of glamour with the songs; the movie was scheduled to be released in the month of October 2013.
However, Balaji Motion Pictures confirmed the release date, scheduled to be on 17 January 2014. The release date of the film was further postponed to 21 March 2014; the soundtrack of Ragini MMS 2 is composed by Meet Bros Anjjan, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Pranay Rijia & Chirantan Bhatt.

The Hits; the second song "Chaar Botal Vodka" featuring Sunny Leone along with Honey Singh was a great success receiving more than 5 million views in 5 days. Madhureeta Mukherjee of the Times of India rated the movie 3.5 out 5 and said, "The film provides the usual creepy cliches – creaking windows, ghostly shadows and bedraggled ghosts. There are fewer leap-out-of-your-seat scenes. Sunny plays the sexed-up baby doll with abandon. While her'act' is good, her'performance' doesn't climax. Yet, she gives us a'drool-worthy' adult-horror film – one of its kind for Bollywood."Mohar Basu of Koimoi rated the movie 3 out 5 concluding, "Ragini MMS 2 is quite a pleasant surprise.
It is not everyday that you begin your morning watching a Sunny Leone film, where she manages to bewilder you something close to a performance. Interestingly threaded with ample hair raising minutes
