Welcome To Karachi is a comedy film which stars Arshad Warsi and Jacky Bhagnani in the lead roles. The film has been directed by Ashish R Mohan. Welcome To Karachi is scheduled to release on 28 May 2015.
The trailer of the film was received well while the music album has also become popular with some foot tapping numbers. We are expecting a light comedy with good one liners from the lead cast.
The story revolves around two friends (Jacky & Warsi). Jacky always wanted to go America but he never gets the visa. So they both tried to go America in a boat. Due to a storm their boat stuck in Pakistan territory. They are kidnapped by Pakistan Taliban. They pretend to be Pakistani Muslims. Pakistani intelligence agency ISI also got the clue that two Indians have illegally came in Karachi. So an ISI agent (Lauren Gottlieb) is sent after them. Too much confusion creates when these characters meet.
Ashish R Mohan has earlier directed Akshay Kumar in Khiladi 786 which was an action comedy film. The movie turned out to be a partial success.
Welcome To Karachi is damn funny at times while completely flat on others. The script looks interesting as two Indians stuck in Pakistan on the mercy of Taliban. But on-screen it has not made that impact. After some time it looks like that film is going nowhere. The main character seems to be confused specially Jacky Bhagnani. The screenplay is very weak which has let down the film. Editing is quite good enough.
The cinematography is average as it never looks like that we are in Karachi. Music of Welcome To Karachi is decent with some chartbusters like Lalla Lalla Lori. Background score is okay.
Arshad Warsi is lovable and evokes laughter at several places. He is absolutely superb and deserves distinction marks for a job excellently done.
Jackky Bhagnani does a free job and his character and performance make him endearing.
Ayub Khosa a very talented actor from Pakistan impresses a lot as a Taliban leader. Lauren Gotllieb act can easily be missed.
Funny One Liners
Poor Direction at Times
Welcome To Karachi is an all mad comedy film. Arshad Warsi brilliant performance and funny one liners are the highlight of the film. If you are a fan of comedy movies that do not relate with logic, then this is for you. Go for it.
