Arshad Warsi and Jacky Bhagnani starer Welcome 2 Karachi was released yesterday. The movie has received mixed reviews from critics.
Let’s see what the top critics have to say on Welcome 2 Karachi
Welcome 2 Karachi Critics Review by Rajeev Masand: Such scenes of inspired lunacy are sadly in short supply here. The film drags on incessantly, a bunch of unimpressive songs stretching out the running time. When the lights come back on in the end, you’ll want to run for the exit. I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for Welcome 2 Karachi. It’s a big fat bore.

Welcome 2 Karachi Critics Review by Rajeev Masand: While the music of the film (Jeet Ganguly, Rochak Kohli, Amjad Nadeem) is nothing to write about, the film’s choreography (Bosco Martis, Caesar Gonsalves, F A Khan, Brinda) is pretty average. If you add average editing (Steven Bernard) and not-so-exceptional cinematography (Mark Nutkins) to the film, it only leaves the film as a helpless proposition. The film’s only saving grace are its dialogues (Vrajesh Hirjee).On the whole, WELCOME 2 KARACHI can be avoided without a regret.

Welcome 2 Karachi Critics Review by Mohar Basu: The flaw of the film, however, lies in its lazy writing. Depending heavily on its low-brow humour and the plot’s inherent tenacity, there is hardly any effort to build it beyond what it was on paper. Arshad Warsi’s screen presence, and his strong sense of comic timing works. Jackky Bhagnani’s earnest performance matches his co-actor’s and his impeccable Gujju diction deserves thumbs up. Lauren Gottlieb is left unused for most part of the film. It’s an average fare which could’ve been far better had its meanderings been trimmed.

Welcome 2 Karachi Critics Review by Saibal Chaterjee: Only the foolhardy would underestimate Bollywood’s ability to do worse, but it is unlikely that you will see another film this unabashedly daft this year. Resist the itch.

Welcome 2 Karachi Critics Review by Shubhra Gupta: When the gags are flowing apace, and there some good ones in here, ‘Welcome 2 Karachi’ keeps ticking. I found myself flagging when the pace dipped, especially in the second half. But overall it is all good-natured and appropriately silly, so ‘Welcome 2 Karachi’ stays watchable. And it manages to end on a hilarious note, sending us out laughing. For a comedy, that’s a win.

Welcome 2 Karachi Critics Review by Surabhi Redkar: The first half keeps you entertained as the situations and dialogues keep you consistently guffawing, even as you get anxious for the safety of the two simpletons who have managed to land themselves among a Taliban group. Some situations are uproariously funny, as the writer bravely takes subtle digs at a particular airline (name conveniently beeped out) and a few other taboo topics which are otherwise spoken in hushed whispers. What doesn’t work is the annoying background music, tacky visual effects and inconsistent direction.
