Film Hindi Review

Welcome 2 Karachi

It is sad, because there is a germ of an idea in the film. On the writer’s table, this had potential to be a farce in the honored traditions of a Laurel & Hardy. But…

You know you’re in for a rough ride when

  • The titles rotate rapidly around a revolving globe, with credits like “Part Dialogue” and “Written by Raj Kundra” set against 80s style Hiranandani Powai skyline
  • Arshad Warsi plays a “genius”
  • Jackky Bhagnani plays a “Super genius”
  • The opening scene has Dalip Tahil speaking in Gujarati, and kicks of a 131 minute marathon replete with fake Gujju accents, “snake” and “hole” level word plays, and an item song with Russian dancers in dandiya attire.
  • VFX for stormy seas and bomb blasts are reminiscent of 16-bit arcade games. B-grade shark attack films in Bhojpuri are less tacky
  • Comedy comes to be represented by lyrics like “g pe lat…” and names like Ittefaq and What the fuck
  • Toilet humor reaches new lows. A fart smell is attributed to a dead rat in the man’s stomach.

What the fafda man.

It is sad, because there is a germ of an idea in the film. On the writer’s table, this had potential to be a farce in the honored traditions of a Laurel & Hardy. Unfortunately, there’s many a slip between the cup and the lip.
