This friday released Welcome To Karachi is a political satire, starring Arshad Warsi, Jackky Bhagnani, Lauren Gottlieb.
Story: The film is a political satire about two Indians who land in Karachi, without their passports. No sooner do they get trapped in the web of the Taliban and try to find a way to get back to India.
Warsi is Shammi, a naval officer discharged from duty because he sinks a submarine. Bhagnani is Kedar, a hardcore Gujju trying to get a visa to the US. Kedar’s father owns a boat for hire company. When a hideout of terrorists is unintentionally blown up, he pipes up Taliban khaliban ho goya.
That is the exactly kind of vacuity that Welcome 2 Karachi thrives on. What stands out in this film is the fairly intelligent writing, which includes a few uproariously funny dialogues, and which belies the writer’s (Vrijesh Hirjee) fair understanding of the current political scenario.
Keeping true to its publicity of being a random comedy, the film is successful in making you laugh intermittently on its cliched gags at places that are all shades of ‘Dumb and Dumber’, yet don’t cease to be fun.
Performance: Arshad Warsi is known for his comic sense but Jackky Bhagnani can surprise you with his understanding of subdued comedy in some of the scenes.
It’s a mindless film, but with some great fun-filled moments.Pakistani actors, Ayub Khoso and Adnan Shah, add dollops of delight to the narration.
Music: The album consists of four songs, two by Rochak Kohli and one each by Jeet Gannguli and Amjad-Nadeem. The songs are very ordinary and an album with nothing interesting.
Shakira song would have been good if Jeet Gannguli had got a slow track. Unfortunately gets an item song that thankfully not being written cheaply, with decent words and phrases.
