Ready - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...I had some hopes that Asin would liven up the proceedings, like she did in `Ghajini’. But here she comes off like a cut-rate Sridevi, with the same kind of squeaky delivery, but without the sparkle or the spunk.... full review
