Welcome Back Analysis

Welcome Back Movie Review and Ratings

The first half of the film reveals around how the two brothers tried to separate the lead pair, John Abraham and Shruthi Haasan. All the episodes in this plot appear funny. Though the director tried to generate the comedy, it is completely outdated one. On the whole, the first half has a few namesake fun episodes and a few of the action scenes, which are logic-less.

Even the second half of the movie is nothing less than the first half. There is no clarity on the plot and all the fun episodes like Anthyakshari, people flying in the sand storm appear silly, instead of funny. On the whole, neither second half, nor the first half is good. Welcome back does not reach the expectations of the audience.


Each and every experienced actor needs a loud applause for their terrific performance in ‘Welcome Back’ movie. Though the scenes do not have the content, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal, makes them lively, with their top notch level performance. Even John Abraham and Shruthi Haasan also shows their youth levels, but that does not help for ‘Welcome Back’ from facing the bad fortune. 

Though Anu Malik and Abhishek Ray music is good, the way the songs are pictured, do not help the film in any manner. Cinematography, editing and rest other technical departments, requires a needless mention, as there is no quality of work can be felt in the movie.

There are many scenes, which can be chopped off for the better quality, but the editor failed in it. The production values are grand but getting back the investment would be left as a dream for Feroz. Director Anees Bazmee took logic-less plot and made it into further mess with poor narration skills. Screenplay appears very boring and in fact irritating. 

Welcome Back Final Word

Welcome Back welcomes the utmost irritation in you. So it would be better if you do not welcome it.
