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.
Raghupati (Nazar), Raghava (Tanikella Bharani) and Rajaram (Chandramohan) are the trio, who run famous cloth showroom RS Brothers. Theirs is a combined and joint family. Raghupati has the fascination to act in stage plays and bags a prize for mono-action from the thespian NT Rama Rao. Chandu (Ram) is the son of Raghava. He is quite dashing and daring, besides had a nature of helping all the needy. When Raghupati plans his daughter’s (Tamanna) marriage, Chandu helps his sister to marry her lover boy (Navadeep). This irks Raghupati and makes Chandu was forced to stay off from the family for some time. When he was in the college, he happens to see Puja (Genelia) and falls in love with her at first sight. But he doesn’t know about her whereabouts. In fact, Puja’s uncles Peddi Reddy and Chinna Reddy (Kota Srinivasa Rao and Jayaprakash Reddy) were big factionists and they get separated due to some property dispute. Once, Chandu kidnaps Puja in a mistaken identity. Learning that Puja too wanted to escape from the marriage and plans to return to the US, Chandu advises her to go to their house and manages to get her settled with his family. When the entire family visits a temple, Peddi Reddy happens to see her and takes her away. Learning that Puja is also in love with him, Chandu decides to marry her. In order to fulfil the wishes of Puja’s parents, who died in a road accident, Chandu wants to marry her in presence of all her family members. How, Chandu managed to convince both the families who were at loggerheads? How Chandu united both the families? How Chandu’s family helped him in winning the hand of Puja? What was the role of McDonald Murthy? Answers to all these questions form part of the remaining part of the film.
Ram who is known for showing good ease in dances and fights, once again excelled in both of them. In addition, with the help of director Sreenu Vaitla, he was able to showcase good comedy in his role. He improved his body language a lot and bettered in histrionics. All the action scenes were quite stylish. In order to add a pinch of salt to his acting capability, director made him to sport the attires of Krishh and spiderman in two scenes, which evoked lot of entertainment. Genelia, not only filled the glamour slot, but also had got a lot of chances to show her ability to perform. Her role is like an extension to her characters in ‘Bommarillu’ and ‘Dhee’. She played her role with a fantastic smile all through the film. Next comes, Brahmanandam, the ace comedian, who gave a brilliant performance. Once again proved that he is second to none in giving a healthy comedy. All the artistes in the film including Nazar, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Jayaprakash Reddy, Tanikella Bharani, Sudha, Surekhavani, Saranya and others did complete justice to their roles. Nagababu, Tamanna, Navadeep made a guest appearance in the movie.
Kona Venkat gave a very good story for the film, besides assisting Gopi Mohan in scripting the dialogues. It was the screenplay penned by Sreenu Vaitla which was so perfect that the audiences are forced to sit tight in their seats. He made them to feel that they would miss a good comedy scene in case they move out of the seat. Camera work by Prasad Murella is okay and choreography of all the songs and fights were perfect. The audiences can’t feel any kind of boredom all through the film. Sreenu Vaitla once again proved that he had a good command in bringing out commercial entertainers. In a nutshell, he achieved the hattrick of successes through ‘Ready’ after two hits like ‘Dubai Sreenu’ and ‘Dhee’. Music by Devisri Prasad is okay but the tunes appeared a little routine, when compared with his other films. The production values of Sravanti Movies are good.
Though the entire film was a complete entertainment, the director chose to end the film with a poor climax. The climax was a little dull. The audiences expect a good action scene in the end but it ends casually. Despite a poor end, the basic theme of giving a good entertainment to the audiences was achieved. Hence the film would definitely remain a good entertainer and worth watching. Another notable feature in the film is that there are no item songs and the film could be watched by the entire family by sitting together.
