  • Welcome 2 Karachi Movie Review - NDTV Movies

    Be warned: two dimwits on the run from assorted gun-toting pursuers in Pakistan isn't an edifying spectacle. Indeed, not a shred of Welcome 2 Karachi, erstwhile Rohit Shetty assistant Ashish R Mohan's second film, is remotely welcoming. A rough-hewn comic caper that is funny for all the wrong reasons, the film hinges on two done-to-death clichés: Pakistan is the most dangerous place on earth and a Patel will do anything it takes to get to the US of A. The screenplay, credited to Vrajesh Hirjee and the director, among others, mixes the two hackneyed ideas in a mindlessly skewed plot in the hope of rustling up an entertaining concoction about two grown-up idiots who know no better than to mistake a gun courier for a pizza delivery boy.
