Welcome Back review: In John Abraham, Shruti Haasan starrer we are looking for the laughs
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Welcome Back is dumb yet entertaining, utterly silly but made with a kind of absurd, warm energy
Raja Sen, REDIFF
Welcome Back is stuck in the past. Why go there?
Acting by Kapoor, Patekar and Shah will have you in splits. However, Dimple is quite wasted and Shruti Haasan just replaces the pretty face Kaif represented in the earlier film.
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
It’s pedestrian but unpretentious; I was surprised by how much I laughed

Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal save the ship of 'Welcome Back' from sinking deep.
Madhuri Prabhu, Claps N Slaps
Director Anees Bazmee presents a decent old school slapstick comedy but poor presentation, misfit lead pair and bad music hurt the film badly.
Paresh Rawal, Anil Kapoor and Nana Pattekar lift the otherwise boring plot of the film
Snehal Rajani, India.Com
What makes Welcome Back different is that director Anees Bazmee promises a senseless comedy, he delivers one. No logic, just irrational laughter.
Shishir Gautam, Nowrunning
On the whole, Welcome Back is a worthy sequel to Welcome. It is very funny and, therefore, very entertaining
Komal Nahta, KomalsReviews
Unlimited ambitions, limited fun
Rohit Vats, Hindustan Times
Defying logics and embracing buffoonery and mobster comedy with childish glee, Anees Bazmee is back with the sequel to his 2007 money spinner 'Welcome' inspired from 1999 Hugh Grant starrer 'Mickey Blue Eyes'.
India Glitz
If your tastes involve logic defying humor filled with crassness, you will love this film
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
hough the film can be called as a family movie to a great extent yet it seems to lag behind in many ways, which makes the credentials of the filmmaker at stake.
Just Bollywood
A fantastic act. For him alone, I say WELCOME BACK!
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
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.
Aravind, Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
Eight years later, Bazmee tries to recreate the same formula and comes up with a watered-down version of the original fun caper.The film draws its strength mainly from Uday Shetty and Majnu Bhai
The film is nowhere near the original prequel, but if one is able to leave logic and reasoning, the film is not that bad.
Welcome Back is funny in parts, but that ‘Welcome’ fluidity is missing big time
Overall, it's a fun watch which will keep you snorting and giggling even after you exit the theatre
Welcome Back doesn’t disappoint
The original ‘Welcome’ was far more entertaining movie than ‘Welcome Back’. It is a crime to replace Akshay and Katrina with John and Shruti.
Indian Film Reporter
The humourless antics of John Abraham, Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor make you PINE for Akshay Kumar!
Sreeju Sudhakaran, Bollywood Life
On the whole, if you enjoy slapstick comedy that defies logic and have enjoyed WELCOME, then WELCOME BACK is surely a paisa vasool entertainer for you.
Bollywood Hungama
Music is decent. Kudos to cinematographer Kabir Lal for the outstanding shoot of foreign locations
Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Paresh Rawal shine in a meaningless but funny film
Deepanjana Pal, First Post
While Welcome Back is promising enough to make you laugh in the breezy and zany first half, the second half breaks the promise blatantly.
Rajat Srivastav, Bharat Movies
Welcome Back movie is the sequel to 2007 blockbuster Welcome, featuring an ensemble cast that includes Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Paresh Rawal
Filmi Beat
Leave your brains behind to enjoy the film
Devesh Sharma, Filmfare
Watch Welcome Back if you can sustain a pathetic second half and climax. Performances by Anil Kapoor, Paresh Rawal and Nana Patekar are a relief though.
Box Office Eye
We are sure that our paap score ain’t that bad that we deserve to sit through the anguishing, vexing and almost punishable experience of Welcome Back.
Pink Villa
Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal’s comic timing save the first half from being a total mess!
Bollywood Life
After every punch-line he keeps reminding the cynical critics, mazaaq tha bhai, (it was a joke!) Indeed.
Anuj Kumar, The Hindu
On the whole Welcome Back is a laugh riot. The film will score big especially at single screens. Give it a chance and have some laughs this weekend.
Bolly Arena
Naseer saab, oh Naseer saab! Why is it that you talk so big but only bring your C-game to the films these days? It’s hypocritical, you know.
Deccan Chronicle
On the whole Welcome Back is a laugh riot. The film will score big especially at single screens. Give it a chance and have some laughs this weekend.
Biz Max TV
Welcome back to the world where logic, sense, and even sensibility is absent, and rather proudly so
And it happens to be a welcome break from 24/7 coverage of murder, financial crashes and other serious news — purely because of the two talented actors who hop, skip, dance and fool around with complete conviction.
Gayatri Gauri, First Post
Watch only for their comic timing otherwise this no-brainer can be give a ‘no welcome’ board.
Deccan Chronicle
The only intent to make Welcome Back is to earn money by cashing on the Brand Welcome, however we are pretty sure that this film won’t even earn money at the Box-Office. The film lacks the entertainment factor which is very essential for a comedy film and what it has to offer is loud and over the top performances
Tallking Moviez
सिचुएशनल कॉमेडी से भरपूर 'वेलकम बैक', अक्षय की कमी खली
And if you’re avid fans of Uday and Majnu Bhai.
Sarita A Tanwar, DNA India
Watch it only if you like crazy comedies and have nothing else to do.
Overall, this is an ideal film for die-hard romantics who believe that good things happen to good people
