      A M I love the way it's choreographed like the scenes are placed very smartly.. & Compared from that time regional standards it's a blockbuster. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Audience Member A nice one time watch featuring good performances from most of its lead actors and packing a punch with humor. Stretches at times so you need to be patient with it with some scenes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Every time I watch this film, it takes me back to the days when we had just purchased a TV. There was no internet, the only entertainment was playing with my toys or playing those demo games I had on the family computer. And every time I watch this film, it reminds me of the exact same scenario I was in when I watched it for the first time. Welcome is my favourite Akshay Kumar film of all time, not just because of how good it is, but also because it comes from what I like to call the "golden age of Bollywood comedy", when films like Dhamaal, Phir Hera Pheri, Sunday used to be made. The film has multiple characters, each one having their own thing going on. Since Ghunghroo wants to get his nephew Rajiv married in a clean family, while Rajiv doesn't like his uncle's behaviour. Meanwhile the dons Majnu Bhai and Uday Shetty want to get Uday's sister married to a clean family too and so they threaten Rajiv and his family to marry her. Then there's RDX and his son Lucky, who are much bigger gangsters than Uday and Majnu and thus don't want them to give up their ways. And RDX is triggered heavily by Lucky's false death. There are many other minor characters like the director played by Vijay Raaz and Ishika played by Mallika Sherawat. The film is one of the better comedy films that Bollywood made in the golden age, considering it's a completely original idea while paying homage to the house scene from the end which is taken from Charlie Chaplin's Gold Rush. The movie directing scene is hilarious, and so is the part where Ghunghroo is trying his best to avoid Majnu at Sun City. The Passing the Parcel part is the one which absolutely takes me back to the child me who was playing Virtual Sailor and occasionally looking at the TV. Welcome is the film I see every time it comes on TV. I really like everything about the film except the campy acting in some scenes, especially by Katrina Kaif. I really wish the sequel captured the same essence that this film did, because it fails heavily in that aspect. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Watchable only for Nana Patekar's excellent comedy timing. Else, the movie is mostly garbage. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Mind blowing comedy with a terrible end plot, but man the quotes in this movie are legendary (almost Hera Pheri level) ... control uday control Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Ahmed M Welcome has everything a comedy movie needs, comedy, a story, and comedy.
