Ready made me laugh sporadically but beyond a point I could almost feel my brain cells shrinking and exhaustion setting in, one joke at a time. I’m going with two stars.

Prem (Salman Khan) falls in love with runaway bride Sanjana (Asin) who masquerades as a family guest and takes refuge in his great Indian parivaar.

And that ought to be good enough for Ready to hit steady and go.

As expected, 'Ready' turns out to be the kind of a film which is all about 'masala' ingredients that are packed in just the right proportions during those two and a half hours. A story that could have been stretched for 30 more minutes or wrapped up 20 minutes earlier, it gives what one was waiting for a long time when it came to movie watching for an entire family 'Some real good entertainment'.
India Glitz
Ready has taken a flying start from North to South and East to West and, in addition, it has masala to keep the masses and the family audiences entertained and happy.
A very weak screenplay and storyline make this the weakest Salman Khan movie this year. Anees Bazmee takes us to La La Land where a person who is in a coma lies with his hairstyle intact – even the braids, a country other than India where everybody speaks

Obviously class, wit, craft, continuity have little significance here

If you are not ready for a brainless flick do not go for Ready.
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
First half of the film is mediocre. The second half is good with hilarious comedy by Brahmanandam. On the flipside, a better editing of first half and some of the fights would do something good to the film. This film is stuffed with ample commercial elements, mainly the vibrant comedy. Ready has potential chances to bring a hat-trick for Seenu Vytla after Dhee and Dubai Seenu. This film is worth a watch for the comedy.

In the meantime if the absence of a convincing storyline isn't a deterrent and you go ballistic every time Sallu baba appears on screen then this is perfect weekend viewing for you.

Ready has received a mixed response from the critics. Few have liked it purely for the entertainment value that it provides and quite a few have slammed it.

Film: ReadyRating: 3.5/5Banner: Sri Sravanthi MoviesCast: Ram, Genelia, Brahmanandam, Kota Srinivas Rao, Shafi, Jaya Prakash Reddy, Tanikella Bharani, Shafi, Navadeep, Tammanah and othersMusic: Devi Sri PrasadStory-Dialogues: Kona Venkat, Gopi MohanAction: Peter HeinsChoreography: Shankar, Suchitra Chandrabose, Prem RakshitCinematography: Prasad MoorellaEditing: MR VarmaDirector: Srinu VaitlaProducer: Sravanthi Ravi KishoreReleased on: 19th June 2008 It is the movie made with Srinu Vaitla's trade mark again. It can be judged in single line as 'expanded version of Dhee with more characters' or 'a modern version of SV Krishna Reddy's Vinodam'. These two films would definitely strike minds while watching Ready.  Story:A complete entertainer, the story begins with the hero Chandu (Ram) who is the darling of a big family of three brothers and one sister- Raghupathi (Nasser), Raghava (Tanikella), Rajaram (Chandramohan) and Swarajyam.  Chandu involves in uniting his cousin (Tamannah) with his lover (Navadeep) and that results in the hatred of his family members on him. He will continue his studies in a college somewhere out of station and again involves in uniting his friend with his lover who is getting married. But accidentally he abducts some other bride Pooja (Genelia), who is unwilling to get married, using chloroform. And after discovering that Pooja is the wrong person, Chandu tries to go close to her. Love sprouts between the two. Chandu's parents also like Pooja and they welcome Chandu to home only on her word.  But Pooja's family members who are factionists take her away to their home finding her somewhere accidentally. Then Chandu goes close to that factionist family through their Auditor Mc Donald's Murthy (Brahmanandam). Comedy starts from then. How he enters into wed lock with Pooja is the story.  Performances:Ram has shown lot of improvement in his performance and came out with originality. In 'Devadas' and 'Jagadam', knowingly or unknowingly he has shown the influences of Pawan Kalyan and Aditya Om. But now he improved a lot.  Genelia appears to have put on some weight in this film, but not looking odd. She justified her role completely.  Tamannah and Navdeep shine in a guest role in the beginning and vanish.

After the earth shattering success of Dabangg, a film that not only did huge business but also won several awards, the one man behind all the success of the film returns with Ready. Salman Khan was always one of the biggest names in the industry, but its
Worth a watch!

Ravikishore is known for producing films with good entertainment and Sravanti Movies is the banner which brought out good family subjects. Ram, who shot into fame with his debut film 'Devadas' directed by YVS Choudary which was a big hit. However, Ram could not repeat the magic in his second film 'Jagadam'. To regain his past glory, he had decided to work with a successful director like Sreenu Vaitla, who gave big hits like 'Dhee' and 'Dubai Sreenu'. With the combination of a successful director, producer and heroine, 'Ready' turned out like a sumptuous meal for the audiences with all kinds of elements like comedy, action, sentiment and romance.

So while Ready isn’t rocket science, its Salman’s masala magic science. Take of your thinking cap and you’ re sure to be entertained thoroughly.

Hindi audience will appreciate this readily but Telugu audience let it down in comparison with original!!
