Remember the days of yore where comedy films in Bollywood could be just funny without the added burden of making sense or being appropriate? I am talking about the heydays of Govinda where it was acceptable for comedy movies to not make any sense but just entertain without. If the 90s Bollywood fan is still alive in you, then Chakri Toleti’s directorial debut ‘Welcome to New York’ is just the movie for you.

Starring Sonakshi Sinha and Diljeet Dosanjh in the lead and Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Karan Johar and Ritiesh Deshmukh in important role, the film is a mad comedy caper that works if you plan not to take it seriously. Diljeet Dosanjh is surprisingly spontaneous in comical bits and fits the character like a glove. He embodies the weird quirks of his character superbly well. Sonakshi’s role, although not very well written, is not disappointing to be honest. Boman Irani as always justifies the role given to him and so does Ritiesh Deshmukh and while Lara Dutta does nothing groundbreaking but convincingly plays the role that has been given to her. Karan Johar is quite a surprise package in the film. His gay antics, although a little exaggerated, blends in well the OTT nature of the film.

The film based on the backdrop of prestigious IIFA Awards ceremony, has an array of cameos which include Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput and Rana Dagubatti, is a little too much but somehow well placed.

Although the film is far from perfect, in fact there are many glaring holes in the movie that jumps out blatantly, but at the end of the Welcome to New York is not a movie you watch to get a substantial message or breakthrough filming techniques. As a movie it is supposed to entertain and offer some fun, light hearted moments and it delivers exactly that without trying to be pretentious.
