Welcome is a 2007 Bollywood comedy film that follows the story of two rival gangsters who decide to unite their families through the union of their children, thereby putting an end to their long-standing enmity. The film begins with Uday Shetty (Nana Patekar) and Majnu Bhai (Anil Kapoor) who are gangsters and run a criminal enterprise. Their businesses are severely impacted by an orphan, Rajiv (Akshay Kumar), and they devise a plan to eliminate him. Rajiv, who has been living in Dubai, returns to India to claim his inheritance left by his parents, which includes a hotel worth Rs 300 crore. Unfortunately for Rajiv, he has no idea about his inheritance unless he gets married.

Uday and Majnu have a sister, Sanjana (Katrina Kaif), and they decide to get her married to Rajiv, so that they can get hold of his property. They devise a scheme to trick Rajiv into marrying Sanjana, and for this, they bring in Dr. Ghunghroo (Paresh Rawal) to pose as a hermaphrodite doctor, who tells Rajiv that he has a serious medical condition and that he will die soon unless he gets married.

Rajiv, who is desperate for money and has no other option, decides to accept the marriage proposal. However, he soon realizes that he has been duped and decides to teach Uday and Majnu a lesson. In the meantime, Rajiv falls in love with Sanjana, and she reciprocates his feelings.

The movie takes a hilarious turn when the rival gangster families try to finalize the wedding preparations but encounter multiple comedic hurdles. Everything from unexpected guests to twists in relationships to unpredictable events create a humorous rollercoaster ride that audiences won't want to miss.

In addition to the film's main storyline, there are several parallel subplots involving the supporting characters, including a love triangle between Uday's bodyguard Sagar Pandey (Vijay Raaz), Majnu's mistress, and the embezzlement of Rs 10 crore by Uday's lawyer. The subplots add to the movie's comedic elements and provide some interesting moments.

The film's highlight is undoubtedly the performances of the lead actors. Nana Patekar delivers a brilliant performance as the patriarch of the family, with his impeccable comic timing and effortless delivery of dialogues stealing the show. Anil Kapoor, as always, provides a strong supporting act with his charming persona and superb acting skills. Akshay Kumar, who plays the innocent guy who falls into the trap of two gangsters, delivers a great performance, and Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous and acts beautifully in her role as Sanjana.
