Ready : Bollywood movie Review

Are you willing to endure two dozen loud characters one underestimated the Salman Khan? If the answer is yes, the film is ready for you. Salman Khan has almost role in real life, play as Prem Kapoor, Hum Saath Saath Hain bachelor somehow continue the common family. Enter Sanjana (Asin), Runaway Bride, which form in the future bahu Kapoor clan. Anees Bazmee fascinating to keep the audience hanging on his players and the suspension of the hills (No Entry Welcome) will continue to fall in love Sanjana and Prem.

But Sanjana is sandwiched between two ham-burger mamajis (Akhilendra Mishra, Sharat Saxena) who are behind her ancestral assets. Prem befriends the chartered accountant (Paresh Rawal) common to both mamajis, to get close to their families. Bazmee almost revisits his earlier film Welcome, as Prem goes on a family furbishing mode by taming the rowdy ruffians and reuniting the separated siblings in their sixties. 

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 first half involves running around the trees (read beating around the bush) while the actual story starts only in the second half. The graph of the narrative does pick up somewhere in the second half but the tempo falls intermittently thanks to the convoluted writing and the protracted proceedings. By the time the film reaches its melodramatic high-voltage climax giving Salman simulated scope to go topless, it leaves you exasperated. 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. Salman Khan looks elegant, it is a fabulous screen presence, and it shows in his comfort zone employs his standard set of dance, acting and ability to act. Rather unusual, he understated his role in the second half and does a decent job of it. 

Asin looks great, and shares a nice chemistry Salman. Mahesh Manjrekar, when a person is a loss for words, it takes almost the same barber sign Suniel Shetty has been a decade back in Awara Pagal Deewana. Paresh Rawal is in order. Standup comedy Sudesh Lahiri may be the funniest scenes. Akhilendra Mishra hams outrageously as if he still has a hangover for his Stem Chandra days. Arya Babbar reduced by a younger artist. Nikitin Dheera is not recognized, not that he is a popular face. Child standup comedian Mohit Baghel is annoying. In the midst of cameos, I wonder what Chunky Pandey was making a film? If you are still willing to see the film as Salman Khan, the film is ready for you!
