Salman-Asin starring READY film reviews

Ready, a romantic comedy with a musical backdrop, is a remake of a 2008 Telugu film of the same name headlining Ram and Genelia D'Souza. The film was also remade in Tamil with Dhanush and Genelia in lead roles as 'Uthama Puthiran'.
'Ready' is produced by T-Series and directed by Anees Bazmee. The film has Arya Babbar, Paresh Rawal, Mahesh Manjrekar, Akhilendra Mishra, Puneet Issarm, Manoj Joshi and Sudesh Lehri in supporting roles.

The Telugu original of the film celebrated a 100- day run in Andhra Pradesh and turned out to be one of the biggest grossers in the US too.

Rediff Reviews Ready

After two films, Dabangg and Wanted, both of which were successful at the box-office Salman Khan returns in Anees Bazmee's Ready. Since Dabangg was the top grosser of the year, or possibly even the decade, the hangover was bound to linger for a couple of years.
And it was obvious Sallu baba would reappear in his Dabangg avatar as his fans screamed for more.

Asin is the surprise element and is totally convincing as the 'runaway bride' despite a small role. She shares good chemistry with Salman and manages to evoke laughter with her crazy antics.

Post-interval Salman gets into action mode, a persona his fans can't get enough of. He fights goons, breaks tables and rescues his lady love from evil gangsters without even breaking into a sweat.

Ready isn't a tribute to Salman Khan. It's a vehicle which showcases the 'Best of Salman' one has seen over the last twenty years.

TOI Reviews Ready

Remade from the 2008 Telugu film Ready (Genelia D'Souza, Ram), the screenplay is adapted in fast-food format with cliched conflicts and so many characters that you lose count after a point of time.
Understanding the character correlations is a task that could even baffle the Barjatyas. The director keeps his task simple by sticking to his brand of loud comedy, over-the-top acts, caricatured characters and silly slapstick.

The entire villain tribe is unusually unkempt and intentionally irritating. The sidetrack of the pampered spoilt grandson (Mohit Baghel) being subjugated by Salman's buffoonery is annoying. Sajid-Farhad's dialogues don't elevate the humour much and when Salman expresses romance with lines like 'main kutta hoon, yeh kutiya hain', you know the film is going to the dogs. The music is inspired and the action has impact though thankfully not overdone.

NDTV Reviews Ready

Ready should have just been called: Salman Khan. The film is essentially a one-man show by an actor, who doesn’t act.

Instead, he plays himself with aplomb – a charming rockstar who can, without much sweat, win the girl, beat-up the bad guy, reconcile warring relations and of course, bare his chiseled chest.

The film is a remake of a Telugu blockbuster and it comes with loud but infectious songs with titles such as Dhinka Chika and Character Dheela. Obviously class, wit, craft, continuity have little significance here.
