2.5 Good

Welcome Back

WELCOME BACK REVIEW- When Welcome released i was 17 years old and that time i never used to watch movies in theater. But watched it on TV and felt very very bad that why i did not watch it in theater. Felt like i missed the gem of comedy cinema. Seen it almost 50 times and i am big fan of Welcome movie. Since then i am waiting for it sequel like anything but when watched 1st trailer of Welcome Back i didn't find it impressive then 2nd trailer came and it was better than 1st trailer. But movie generated enough buzz for me because of those 2 trailers but i wasn't expecting a gem of comedy like its prequel. My expectations were neither low nor high. And after watching it today in theater,i say it was a good movie really. Obviously, you cant expect better movie than Welcome if you are sensible comedy lover so this one has comedy but not sensible at all. Even i thought this one will be a crap movie but movie proved me wrong. First half entertains you lot with punches and some crispy dialogues by setting plot of the movie. Story is exactly opposite to its prequel's story i don't wanna expose it now cause it will kill all fun of watching it for movie lovers. But second half drags its not as good as first half. It has no sense at all, too many childish and vfx scenes are there which looks really crap. And movie ends at unsatisfying note which really hurts audience. Now lets move on to actors, the first name comes in mind is Nana Patekar. The leader of this movie army, has a best role in the movie. Shines like a Prime Star, steals the show on his dialogue delivery and accent. Then second star is Anil Kapoor who had second best role. These two are enough to entertain you but you get extra bonus here in the form of Paresh Rawal. Another fine performance by fine actor. John's accent was too loud and too tapori. Sometimes it feels irritating, not appreciable at all. Shruti Hasan looks good but her dialogues and accent remains same as she does in every movie. Nasiruddin Shah did whatever director told him but i didn't find it impressive. Other supporting star cast were good as it was in Welcome. Music is a big disappointment here. Its prequel had chart buster music but Welcome Back doesn't even got a single hit song. Really music composer definitely deserves some bad words from everybody. Screenplay was smartly written but not completely it has some minuses at some scenes it was too predictable. Production is high scale shot the film on gorgeous locations. Director Anees Bazmi tried to give his best but failed to make a successful gem like Welcome. Still he gave some mind blowing scenes and dialogues to be remembered for long time. Overall a good family entertainer for all ages and all kind of audiences. Classes wont like film that much as masses would but both will find it A Paisa Vasool Entertainer. Go and watch Welcome Back enjoy your time but don't expect much and do not compare it with Welcome.
