Welcome to Humor Nation. Welcome was released in 2007 and was a big hit. The film starred Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Nana Patekar, Mallika Sherawat, and Paresh Rawal in the lead roles. Welcome was also the second highest grossing film of the year 2007, only behind Om Shanti Om. The film also spawned a sequel titled Welcome Back which was also successful at the box office, but didn’t star Akshay Kumar in the lead role. The climax scene of the film has been inspired from the movie Michael Madan Kama Rajan and the Charlie Chaplin’s The Gold Rush.
The film tells the story of a criminal don named Uday whose character is played by Nana Patekar who is desperate to get his sweet and beautiful sister Sanjana get married to a nice man. But he is unsuccessful since no one wants to associate themselves with his criminal family. On the other hand, Dr. Ghunghroo has also been trying to find a nice girl for his nephew. He wants a purely white-collar, decent family for his nephew, but he too is unsuccessful.
Things soon get interesting when the paths of Dr. Ghunghroo and Uday Shetty cross. Dr. Ghunghroo unknown of the real occupation of Uday, thinks that he is a very decent man, and gives him his word to get his nephew married to Uday’s sister.
