Indian cinema is at a crossroad of modernization whereby new breed of directors is taking Indian cinema into world platform. With big stars like Aamir Khan moving into meaningful cinema it is sad that few stars are coming in between development. Yeah I agree there are different genre of films which caters to different taste but there is a thin line between commercial and tasteless. While Dabang had something new to offer in terms of execution thanks to abhinav Singh Kashyap, Ready relies on orthodox potboilers which are on the verge of obsolescence. Ready has an wafer thin hackneyed story line which begins with rich spoil brat Salman Khan (as Prem) whose profession was probably "helping people" . and like any "unique" story he falls in love with beautiful Asin (as Sanjana) but wait like any original love story there is a twist in this tale. There are evil cha-chas eyeing for Sanjana's wealth and Prem goes on to save his lady love. In the meantime there is moral gyans of perfect families and all expected possibilities in an Hindi film from the 80s. It is sad that Aneez Bazmee scripted (rather remade) such a boring script only to cash in Salman's star status and sadly the film might become the biggest grosser of all time decelerating Indian cinema to the backwardness from which movies like Satya,Dil Chahta Hai,Dev D and lots of young directors did their best to change the notion of Indian cinema. The film trying to be a supposed family entertainer is full of double innuendos and toilet humour. In a particular scene a guy runs and in the motion farts out loudly.Can this be termed as a comedy ? or sample this one a boy pisses on the mouth of a goon. The scenes had nothing wacky in execution and it seems tasteless to me. Well least said about Aneez Bazmee is better with movies like No problem, thank you and now Ready he is epitome of mockery of cinema. Salman Khan as usual repeats himself and he was nowhere near his earlier Chulbul Pandey act which had freshness in it. Instead Prem is a typical rich brat with a heart of gold, a character types which has been repeated since time immemorial. Asin is expressionless at her best. The supporting cast involves some of the big names of the industry like Paresh Rawal,Mahesh Manjrekar,Sharad Saxena,Akhilendra Mishra,Manoj Pahwa and credit should be given to Bazmee for bringing out loud performances from otherwise natural comedians.
When the Indian film industry started churning quality cinema it is indeed sad to see few stars helping directors to go back to medieval age of meaningless films. Ready will be blockbuster but then this film marks the backward journey of Indian cinema for sure. Till star adoration is there no one can improve quality of Indian cinema.
