Mein Kutta Hoon, Yeh Kutiya Hain (I am a dog and she is my bitch).
– Salman Khan’s character Prem referring to his girlfriend Pooja (played by Asin) in the movie Ready
Who says Salman Khan is a superstar?
The U.S. box office numbers for Salman’s latest crapshow Ready are out and they suck.
Yeah, they suck big time for this kutta-kutiya film. 😉
Hell, even the Deol buffoons’ (Sunny and Bobby) movie Yamala Pagla Deewana did much better than Ready at the box office. No kidding.
Ready also fared much worse than Salman’s last movie, Dabangg (see below table).
For the opening June 3-5, 2011 weekend, Ready could manage a total gross of just $460,238 and average gross of $4,745. The trashy movie released on 97 screens in the U.S.
Here’s how Ready did at the U.S. box office compared to a few prominent Bollywood films:
Folks, Ready is an awful movie.
If you haven’t seen it, consider yourself blessed.
As the wise souls at SearchIndia.com wrote in their review of Ready:
In the dismal annals of bad Indian movies, Ready (Salman Khan, Asin Thottumkal) occupies pride of place.
The Bollywood movie, which released in the U.S. this morning, is a nauseatingly awful piece of junk that has few parallels.
A movie with a fig leaf of a story so sophomoric that one shudders at the damage such tripe inflict on the already battered reputation of Bollywood.
As many of our smart readers are aware, Ready is the remake of a Telugu movie bearing the same name. We missed the Telugu version but it was our great misfortune to watch the Tamil version.
Directed by a Bollywood yokel answering to the yells of Anees Bazmee, Ready’s claim to fame is that the camera relentlessly maintains its focus on Salman Khan’s swollen, aging face much of the time as he makes a jackass of himself.
