Veera Narasimha Naidu's (Prabhu) sister (Seetha) marries a Muslim guy Bhasha (Suman) against his wishes. After fighting for rights on an ancestral property for 20 years, he loses the legal battle to Bhasha.
So Narasimha Naidu hates Bhasha and refuses to meet or talk to his sister. Meanwhile, a pandit tells Narasimha Naidu to perform yaagam to quell the bad omen. Then he orders his manager (Brahmanandam) to bring in a reputed Brahmin to perform the ceremony and the manager mistakes Suliaman (Manchu Vishnu) as Krishnasastry and brings in.
Suliaman enters the scene pretending to be Krishnasastry with a goal.
A hero taking someone else's identity for a certain cause and the drama revolving around it is one of the oft-repeated stories on Indian screen. Denikaina Ready also has the same plot, which again is based on a Malayalam super hit, Udayapuram Sulthan (1999).
Writers BVS Ravi, Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan have adopted the film to suit the tastes of the Telugu audiences.
With the wafer-thin storyline, director G Nageshwara Reddy and writers have tried to bank on the Krishnasastry versus Suliaman conflict entirely. Much of the comedy comes from the scenes about this confusion drama.
Also scenes revolving around Brahmin community (though sometimes it did go overboard) have evoked laughs.
Denikaina Ready runs mostly on formula format, yet it doesn't provide any boredom; some of the scenes are genuinely funny. But the film needs to be trimmed a bit and a song or two be chopped off.
Manchu Vishnu fits well in the role of Krishnasastry as he is good at comedy. His combination scenes with Brahmanandam and Bharath have worked out well. Hansika is slightly overweight but provides oomph factor.
Comedians Brahmanandam, Bharath, Dharmavarapu, M S Narayana and Vennela Kishore have got maximum screen space and they are at their best. Surekha Vani has also done comedy this time. Prabhu, Seetha, Suman and Kota are okay.
Since the film mostly relies on dialogue comedy, the dialogue writer Marudhuri Raja should be commended for funny dialogues. Writers BVS Ravi, Kona and Gopi Mohan have tried to play the safe game as their story development and screenplay reminds of Dhee, Ready and other similar comedy entertainers.
Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and Chakri leaves much to be desired. Siddharth's cinematography and M R Varma's editing is neat.
Director G Nageshwara Reddy has presented this film mostly like early EVV Satyanarayana movies with a parody song included.
Denikaina Ready is a time pass flick. Although it runs with formula comedy scenes, it also has some genuine comedy sequences and the film moves on with regular doses of laughs.
