Welcome Back Movie Review

Cast: John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia

Director: Anees Bazmee


There is nothing different about Welcome and Welcome Back, except that the sister is now played by Shruti Haasan and her partner is not an innocent guy but a gangster played by John. Nevertheless, let us tell you what the movie is all about! Uday Shetty (Nana Patekar) and Majnu Bhai (Anil Kapoor) miss a wife in their life! Yes, there are still two single men who have now left the underworld and have become prominent businessmen in the UAE.

Like always the have fallen in love with the same girl, a princess (Ankita Srivastava) whose mother lays down a condition that first they have to get their sister married off. Now the sister, Ranjhana (Shruti) is in love with Ajay aka Ajju Bhai (John Abraham) who is actually the stepson of DR, Gungharoo (Paresh Rawal).

Oh God! The brilliant, out of the world and confused plot doesn't end here. You still have the entry of Wanted Bhai (Naseeruddin Shah) and his drug addict son Honey (Shiney Ahuja). By the way, Honey falls for Ranjhana! So now which don will the brothers get her sister married and who will they marry and what all the characters haphazardly do in the movie forms the crux.

Make sure to miss the unnecessarily long climax in the scene in the movie, now only Aneez knows the importance of it!


The only saving grace in the movie are two people and their chemistry with each other, Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar. Their hilarious camaraderie manages to keep the movie afloat. John Abraham has done his best, could not really expect more from him.

Naseeruddin Shah tries his best to justice to the blind don role, but even a classic guy can do only so much to save a film, Shruti Haasan is there but not exactly there in the movie, meaning her role is quite small amidst all the commotion in the movie.


Co-writer and director Anees Bazmee and done a major blunder in this movie. Had he tried a little more, he could have really out forward an entertaining comedy film but he prefers to stick with a boring screenplay and well that's about it.

There is nothing new in the movie, just a few gag scenes which tickle your funny bone! 


Well, if you skip to watch, you are not losing out on anything great! But if you are the kind who leaves your brains at home, then Welcome Back is your cup of tea!
