Directed by Ashish R Mohan, the Bollywood movie
Welcome To Karachi is apparently influenced from the
Hollywood flick Dumb And Dumber starring Jim Carrey and

Welcome To Karachi Plot:
Welcome To Karachi deals with two friends, Arshad Warsi (Shammi
Thakur) and Jackky Bhagnani (Kedar Patel). Jackky is desperate to
go to US but is unable to do so as every time his visa gets
rejected. Then, Arshad comes as a saviour for his friend and
convinces him that he would take Jackky to America on a boat
without any visa issues.
However, the actual fun begins when the duo end up reaching
Karachi in Pakistan and eventually, get into the hands of Taliban
who plan to use them for terrorism. Then follows a series of
comedies as Arshad and Jackky try to escape the clutches of Taliban
and Pakistan as a whole. To know whether they are able to get free
or end up being at the mercy of the neighbouring nation, you have
to watch the movie.
Welcome To Karachi Performances:
Arshad Warsi who is known for his superb comic timing, could not
impress us much in this movie as the plot itself was too silly.
Jackky Bhagnani on the other hand, performed better compared to his
past works. Others like Lauren Gottlieb don't have much scope to
Welcome To Karachi Loopholes:
The movie appears to be too silly and the level of humour is
more or less childish. The scenes lack proper sequencing and the
film ends with an absurd climax. Although, certain punch lines are
good, most of them are too typical and monotonous.
Welcome To Karachi Positives:
Arshad Warsi and Jackky Bhagnani add some amount of humour to
the film with certain funny punch lines. Apart from that, there is
nothing much to add in this section.
Welcome To Karachi Technical Aspects:
The film lacks good editing as the scenes seem very confusing at
certain points. Moreover, the background score also will make you
wish if you could press the mute button. The movie is technically
not very sound.
Welcome To Karachi Verdict:
Arshad Warsi deserves a better plot and Jackky Bhagnani needs a
better movie. All in all, Welcome To Karachi is a silly
film which won't impress anyone who has a good sense of

Overall it is all good-natured and appropriately silly, so
‘Welcome 2 Karachi' stays watchable.
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.

We all know Arshad Warsi is a competent actor and his talent
shows in a particularly hilarious scene which includes a Indo-Pak
cricket match. Jackky Bhagnani, as a money minded but daft Gujarati
boy is good. Lauren Gotleib proves that she is a far better dancer
than actor, as she sizzles in a dance number. Pakistani actors,
Ayub Khoso and Adnan Shah, add dollops of delight to the narration.
Worth one watch.
