Normally, I wait for movie reviews, before I decide to spend my hard earned money on watching a movie in a cinema hall (does anyone use this term now?) But this time, we wanted to be amongst the review generators (!!) for a movie, so bought the tickets of the movie "Ready" beforehand.
We did carry the pop corns and nachos inside the hall (the security guard took away my chewing gums!) but we left our brain behind.... at our home. Yeah, u really have to leave your brains behind when you are heading to watch a Masala Bollywood Movie. For ages, I kept away from movies for this very reason... but now at 36...... you want to be in sync with the world around and more importantly you want to enjoy life. That's the very reason, I'm always game for fun and outings.
Salman Khan starrer "Ready" (well, it actually was, with Salman being in most of the shots of the movie!!) was an average movie for me. Reason? Read on...
First, if u want the audience to not to think, or use logic in the events of the movie, the idiocy of the story line, the monotony of the Indian family drama thing...... then please for God's sake don't make them THINK and REMEMBER facts of your movie. Just let the audience chill.
Second, why can't we ever think beyond love, love triangles, family, family feuds, and evergreen "Hum sath sath hain" family drama?? I can't believe it, but "Ready" was all about it.
Third, alright, Salman is the hero of the movie, but boy leave the audience for a while, let them want to see you, let them wait for you for a few seconds. You don't have to hover over the big screen all the time (and that too with your shirt on!!!)
As for Asin, I find her very very ordinary in looks, a girl next door. Or may be a girl like that was needed for the movie, because it was a Salman's movie. I hated the typical scene of a morning when this girl (settled in phoran!) wakes up early, and does a Pooja- Arti , much to the joint family's delight. Phew! where does it happen apart from our Hindi Movies?!
Overall, an OK movie, one time watch, not really a paisa vasool for me. Kids will enjoy it a lot, my sons are not complaining!
Lastly, I'm still not able to figure out why they named it "READY" ???? Ready for a no- brainer???!!!
