Movie Review: Ready

Starring: Salman Khan, Asin, Mahesh Manjrekar
Director: Anees Bazmee
Music Director: Pritam

This one’s only for die-hard Salman Khan fans as there is nothing else to redeem it. Remake of a Telugu hit, Ready is truly a one-man show with Salman holding fort throughout and regaling you with his whacky and bizarre antics. So the masses will surely love this loud Southern-flavored masala entertainer.
There is nothing exceptional by way of plot. In fact, many in the audience will find the storyline outdated and terribly formulaic. But then, Ready was never supposed to have a ground-breaking story. The movie is just a vehicle to showcase Salman Khan’s star power. Prem (Salman Khan) who falls in love with Sanjana (Asin) decides to teach her two greedy mamas (uncles) a lesson in his own inimitable way. Both want Sanjana to marry their respective brothers-in-law so that they can usurp her property. How Prem stops them from carrying out their devious plans, forms the crux of the film.

The music by Pritam is peppy and the songs well choreographed. Character Dheela has become a rage and is probably the best thing about the film after Salman Khan. Paresh Rawal is excellent. Mention must be made of funster Sudesh Lahiri, too, who leaves a mark. Asin is good, but she looks ill at ease at times.
If you’re ready to throw your logic and intelligence to the winds, then you’re ready to sit back and enjoy this nonsensical movie.
