The film starts with a Gujarati party song by some dumb foreign extras and Kedar Patel (Jackky Bhagnani) thrusting his pelvic muscles, making it all look cheap and below the belt, literally.
Anyways, moving on, we get to meet Shammi Thakur (Arshad Warsi), an ex-navy captain who just can’t keep a tab on his overflowing emotions and equally wild tongue. Do we actually have such insipid and dumb navy men. Well, lets not even get there and waste our time.
Since Shammi is expelled, he is forced to spend most of his time with Kedar Patel. Kedar’s father Mitesh Patel (Dalip Tahil) is a boisterous businessman who wants his son to take over.
As expected, Kedar keeps failing and then one day he is supposed to take care of a cruise wedding and this makes him land in Karachi, Pakistan. Don’t ask why and how.
Now, both Shammi and Kedar stray into Pakistani thanks to a freak storm, meet Taliban commanders, are blown up terrorist camps by mistake, and last but not the least want to be back home as soon as possible.
All of a sudden, illogical as it can be, a bomb blast on the beach kills many. Kedar, and Shammi escape with minor injuries and find themselves in a hospital.
When they discover where on the world map they are, they resort to desperate measures to make their way back to India. Gosh!! What a disaster!!
Ashish Mohan, who directed Khiladi 786, returns with a disaster and you have to give yourself a pat on your back to sit through this one as this one is just unbearable.
The screenplay, that’s crafted by Vrajesh Hirjee and the director, among others, is a juvenile mess. We have scenes that are just put together in the hope of entertaining the audiences, but then it’s all really absurd and bizarre.
The film is crafted only for morons, who have the art to mistake a gun courier for a pizza delivery boy. Spare me!!
Of the star cast, Jackky Bhagnani, falls flat and the naturally gifted Arshad Warsi, tries his best to add life to a script that’s lifeless.
Welcome 2 Karachi is only a maddening mess that’s insipid and poorly crafted.
All in all, Welcome 2 Karachi is full of cheap mindless jokes and make a mockery of a process called film making.
Arshad Warsi, you could have seen this coming.
Best avoid wasting your time and money on this one.
Welcome 2 Karachi is full of juvenile scenes put together, it's full of forced humour and it's full of cheap mindless jokes that put you off instead o...0.5
