Shot in Britain, Welcome to Karachi is a hilarious Indian remake of Dumb and Dumber. Despite being heavily influenced by the classic comedy Dumb and Dumber, there's no denying that Welcome to Karachi is a unique film in its own right. Starring one of the finest comedy actors currently working in Bollywood, Arshad Warsi, who is ably supported by the younger actor, Jackky Bhagnani. Despite the title of the film, it would appear that the pair go everywhere in the world apart from Karachi! Mixing locations in Bradford, Birmingham and Wales (among other places), things go from bad to worse for them and they end up getting shot at by a CIA drone, disowned by India, kidnapped by gangsters and attacked by Pathans. Can they get home in one piece or will their blissful innocence and naivety lead to their untimely demise?
