Welcome Back Critics Review and Rating
Welcome Back Movie Review by Rohit Vats from Hindustan Times: Unlike the previous film where Akshay Kumar held everything together. John Abraham tries his best to do an Akki act, but a weak script pulls him down again and again. Welcome Back is funny in parts, but that ‘Welcome’ fluidity is missing big time. There are moments but they are very limited in number. Welcome Back’s pace is its biggest asset and that may make you enjoy this 153-minute long film.
Rating: 2.5 Stars

Welcome Back Movie Review by Bollywood Hungama: On the whole, if you enjoy slapstick comedy that defies logic and have enjoyed WELCOME, then WELCOME BACK is surely a paisa vasool entertainer for you.

Welcome Back Movie Review by First Post: At 153 minutes, Welcome Back is just a shade too long and the ending is a sandstorm of stupidity. But you’ll forgive Bazmee and gang because for at least 120 minutes, this comedy keeps you in splits. Welcome Back might be 2015’s silliest film and this is the best reason to watch it. After all, when was the last time you came out of the cinema giggling?

Welcome Back Movie Review by Saibal Chaterjee from NDTV: Welcome Back has some funny one-liners, but they are too few and far between. A couple of the gags, including one in which Uday Shetty and Majnu Bhai play antakshari in a graveyard, are hilarious. But in the main, Welcome Back passes off loads of asinine humour in the guise of comedy.Welcome Back is stuck in the past. Why go there?

Welcome Back Movie Review by Bollywood Life: In Welcome Back, you have inserted the scenes from the first film to build context to why this film exists in the first place. You shouldn’t have done that, ‘cos every viewer in the theatre is there because they enjoyed that film. Those scenes only made me pine to watch that film again, go to IMDB and increase its rating. As for this film of yours, sorry sirs, Welcome Back is NOT welcome at all!

Welcome Back Movie Review by Gulf News: Anees Bazmee is back with the sequel to his vacuous 2007 comedy Welcome and once again it proves to be a laugh riot — at least in the first half of the film. Yes, with nearly 10 main characters trying to run each other over, it is a riot.

Welcome Back Movie Review by Emirates247: Movies like ‘Welcome Back’ or its predecessor ‘Welcome’ are best left untouched. It’s madness that could entertain you if you are wired weirdly.
