Ready Box Office Report – Horrrrrible

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?

No way.

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 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.

    Ready didnt fare well in UK either – £ 236,869 in 50 prints at average of £ 4,737.

    It is only in India that this crap is super-hit. films like Tees Maar Khan do 50 crore in week one then this is no suprise.
    It is really sad story here. Films like Shor In The City and Stanley Ka Dabba which are good movies get empty cinema halls here. Responds:

    Shor in the City was worth watching.

    Watched Gregory Peck’s classic ‘The Guns of Navarone’ recently..I just loved the movie…Wonderful performances from Peck, David Niven and the rest of the cast…Watch the movie if possible………I’m sure you’ll like it…….. Responds:

    Some centuries back, we read the book (by Alistair MacLean) & watched the movie as well.

    Will rewatch one of these days.

    Right now, we’re watching Satyajit Ray’s Shatranj Ki Khilari (The Chess Players).

    Ready’s world wide distributor may not bother below average performance of movie in US.
    Because, film is all set to emerge huge succes in India. Incidently, there are only six films which have done distributor share more than 50cr in India and 3 belongs to Salman Khan. Ready is one of them. Responds:


    It shows that Allah blesses drunk drivers (Salman Khan) who murder pavement dwellers by driving their Toyota Land Cruiser SUvs on them, crushing sleeping children and running away without taking them to hospital.
