Film Ready, directed by Anees Bazmee is a remake of a Telugu hit of the same name. The film stars Salman Khan and Asin in the lead roles. Ready belongs to the genre of commercial cinema, loved by the movie goers. However, there is a piece of suggestion, Ready is not a film for people who are looking for meaningful cinema. It is film which is full of masala, humour, love, peppy music and of course superstar Salman Khan.
Prem Kapoor (Salman Khan) lives with his father (Mahesh Manjrekar) and two uncles (Manoj Joshi, Manoj Pahwa). Sanjana Singh (Asin) is an orphan who comes to India to stay with her mamas (uncles) Sharat Saxena and Akhilendra Mishra who are greedy and want to takeover her property. Prem falls in love with Sanjana and decides to teach her mamas a lesson. The mamas plan to marry Sanjana to their respective brothers-in-law, so that they get her property. How Prem fools everybody and rescues Sanjana from the mess, is what follows in the story.
The film comes as a fresh breath for the film goers after a long list of serious cinemas. There is not much to think about the plot as it is definitely behind times, but the peppiness that Salman adds to the love story by his power packed performance is totally paisa wasool and entertaining.
Ready brings back the dream world cinemas, where there is a hero and a heroine, they falling in love and that is the world for them. The dialogues are superb and delivered with the correct expression. You will enjoy the film if you want to get out of that meaningful cinema mode and watch something entertaining.
Bazmee successfully packs loads of entertainment in Ready that you hardly find any chance to get bored in the two hours of journey. Music is full-on feel good types. The action is good.
The screenplay fails to grip the attention in the first hour of the film. There are a few scenes that make no sense. These above things could have been avoided if the writing was absolute. At places writing is old-fashioned and outdated.
Salman Khan spreads his superstar acting in the film with his soulful performance. Asin is convincing inspite of her ill looks and not at ease at some places. Paresh Rawal is excellent and as usual compliments finely with Salman's comic timing. Sudesh Lehri was solid and exceptional. Akhilendra Mishra, Mahesh Manjrekar, Anooradha Patel and Sharat Saxena are good. Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Kangna, Zarine Khan, Chunky Pandey and Arbaaz Khan have done great cameos.
Ready is strictly for masses and Salman makes films strictly for them. Looking for a masala flick? Ready is the best choice for the weekend to chill out and refresh your mind.
