Yet another rib stickling film by filmmaker Anees Bazmee who proceeds with his effective keep running in satire films and this time a touch of more dramatization and masala to make the procedures increasingly tart. Heaps of chuckling in Welcome. Uday Shetty (Nana Patekar), Majnu Bhai (Anil Kapoor) and their leader Sikander (Feroz Khan) are essentially the amusing yet dreaded mobsters. They are quick to get Uday’s sister Sanjana (Katrina Kaif) wedded into a decent family. Majnubhai happens to meet an attractive single man Rajiv (Akshay Kumar) by some coincidence and is persuaded that the Rajiv would be a proper counterpart for Sanjana.
Sanjana, being absolutely unaware of her sibling’s plan, happens to get into a love affair with Rajiv and they become romantically happy couple together. Rajiv’s uncle Dr. Ghunghroo (Paresh Rawal), being unaware of the way that she is a mobster’s sister affirms the thought, however, when he comes to know about her true family identification, Dr. Ghunghroo rules against the marriage.
These happenings occur in the city of Dubai and the beautifully South Africa which gives the film a lavish, bright and a charming inclination. Another twist takes place when the boy’s uncle at that point agrees to the wedding. However, there is another bend in the plot when a flawlessly hot sensation (Mallika Sherawat) lands on the scene and cases to be Rajiv’s married spouse. What follows then only adds to the confusion and chaos amidst some perfect timing comedy moments.
In this generally rib-tickling satirical comedy, there are some superfluous moments like the endeavour to transform the gangster into a fair individual. The whole scenes of Uday Bhai attempting to transform into a film legend are generally frustrating like the retakes in the film shooting occurring in a racecourse. Indeed, even the house breakdown scene in the peak shows up excessively emotional. Now and again the filmmaker loses his bit of satire at such times which are very despicable. A portion of the gigs don’t work, frequently a few jokes fall flat.
There are some hot numbers performed by Mallika Sherawat and one performed by Malaika Arora. The tunes are in accordance with the pattern, quick and pacy. They produce a cool and hep impression. Nana Patekar is refreshingly agreeable in this comic job of a mobster. Feroz Khan is gotten to acquire some component of mafia-type happenings. Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar are aces in such circumstances. Katrina Kaif is simply incredibly delightful and better in her exhibition. Vijay Raaz is top-notch. Supriya Karnik, Snehal Dhabi, Adi Irani, Mushtaq Khan, and Sherveer Vakil are there as well. Suniel Shetty’s sudden guest appearance shocks the audiences.
Anil Kapoor brandishing a light stubble takes the spotlight, bringing back recollections of his Jaanbaaz and Meri Jung characters depicted by him. Even though not having him all through the procedures, however, when and at whatever point he shows up on the screen, Anil Kapoor is simply marvellous. He is the star of this film.
Anees Bazmee has now settled his energy for comedies, while journalists Rajiv Kaul and Praful Parekh have worked superbly. There is the particular Himesh Reshammiya tunes in the majority of the tracks, nothing extraordinary. The styling and appearance of the film is top class. Indeed, even Katrina Kaif has nothing to do other than to look captivating, and she has that influence well.
