Storyline

After the passing away of his dark-skinned wife, from who they sired Uday, Dubai-based criminal don, Shankar Shetty re-married a fair-skinned woman, who gave birth to fair-skinned Sanjana. After the couple's passing, Uday takes over in his dad's footsteps, and takes it upon himself to try and get Sanjana married - in vain, as no one wants to be associated with a crime family. Then Uday's associate, Sagar Pandey, aspiring live-action painter, who had loved Iravati, got beat-up by her brothers, and was re-named Majnu, assists in finding a young man, Rajiv, who lives with his maternal uncle, Dr. Ghunghroo and aunt, and through extortion compels Ghunghroo to accept this alliance. But Ghunghroo, at the very first opportunity, gets Rajiv to fall in love with another young woman in Sun City, South Africa. When the time comes to get Rajiv formally engaged to this woman, he finds out that Sanjana and she are the very same woman. With no escape from this predicament, the wedding is planned, ...

Total froth, worth a watch
30 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm making no pretense about this movie. The fact that Akshay keeps racking up the hits shows me there are an awful lot of people who are eager to spend their money for pure escape. So this movie is an honest transaction with no claims to art. For the millions who want what it offers, they can go without fear they will regret it. To me, the thing I liked best was the female cast. It is rare for a movie to bring together such an eyeful. I was sold by the trailers that showed Malaika, Katrina, and Mallika. And the movie delivered.

One comparison I'll make is with Kyon Ki and Garam Masala. When I watched those movie there were many moments when I was stopped by "what in the world were they thinking?" By contrast, I didn't really have those moments in Welcome. Also, Anil, Nana, and Feroze really added to the comedy. All three of them are solid performers. In fact, I'd say Malaika, Katrina, Mallika, Anil, Nana, and Feroze were the best things I found in the movie. No wonder it rang up such high sales.
