We have the same gangster duo of Uday Shetty (Nana Patekar) and Majnu (Anil Kapoor) who are trying to turn honest and also trying to get their sister Ranjana (not Sanjana) that is Shruti Hasan ( not Katrina) married off. Parvesh Rawal  repeats his role of the harassed Dr. Ghungroo and his nephew is now played by John Abraham ( not Akshay Kumar) not forgetting RDX played by Feroz Khan now replaced with Naseeruddin Shah. These changes seem to have paId off for director Anees Bazmi since the audiences seem to have loved the movie.


However the earlier Welcome was definitely more entertaining since the comedy was better presented and the one liners had punch. Some of the earlier comparatively better gags in Welcome were
1. Hum goonday hain, iska ye matlab to nahi ki hamari bahen ki shadi nahi ho sakti.
2. Aajkal to biscuit ko bhi respect dete hain aur Parle-G kehte hain.
3. Jis din main paint karne ke liye brush uthata hoo, us din gun nahi uthata.


There is no gag or one liner or situation in this film which one remembers after leaving the theater and there are some very unfunny scenes which don't amuse. The quality of buffoonery leaves much to be desired.The silver lining is that a number of scenes are shot on a grand scale with the backdrop of a huge palace like set and ditto for the songs/ dances.The director has not been able to do better than Welcome and the film desperately tries to create comedy at places. Even the lead actors ham quite a bit due to not so funny scenes.Acting wise both Anil and Nana try to put up the same chemistry but it is not the same. The dialogue also lacks the punch required. Paresh Rawal and John Abraham just about manage. The ladies are just eye candy in their roles.


The music has got popular though it is nothing much to talk about. The technical aspects are good with some splendid aerial photography. The film is,high on technology but low in the paperwork which is very important to create comedy..
