Movie Review ‘READY’-Main karo tu Sala character dela hai

Salman Khan’s ‘READY’ Releasing Friday

Salman Khan and Asin are in the lead characters with Arya Babbar, Paresh Rawal, Mahesh Manjrekar in the crucial role. The film READY, directed by Anees Bazme, is a remake of super-hit Telugu film READY, which had full dose of humour and commercial cinema.

Khan is teamed with Asin, a South Indian actress, for a mad caper set somewhere in Thailand: Prem (Khan) is a confirmed bachelor and womanizer arranged to marry Pooja, an Indian girl arriving from overseas. But at the airport, the enterprising Sanjana (Asin), herself on the run from a bad arranged marriage into an organized crime family, overhears Prem, sees an opportunity and tells Prem she’s the girl he’s waiting for.

That’s the kickoff for a confusing and only sporadically funny set of circumstances that, no surprise, wraps up with a happy ending. The film isn’t completely without its charms, though. Khan’s cockiness and the allure of Asin — an award-winning actress who is a major star in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu films — have a certain appeal.

The film’s producer, T-Series, has taken full advantage of Thailand’s generous shooting incentives, setting the film in a series of unnamed but lovely, sultry Thai locales. And the songs in Ready are sexy and even clever, as in Character Dheela, which finds Khan and Asin reenacting classic romantic moments from old Hindi films with tongue-in-cheek. But a few thrills are not enough to make up for two-plus hours of inanity.
