"Welcome to New York" is a heartfelt, slapstick comedy that tells the story of two unlikely youngsters living in India in search of a better life for themselves. An unexpected trip to New York City sets them off on a comedic adventure that changes their lives forever.

Two very different people from varied backgrounds come together out of chance. A neurotic young woman, an unknown clothing designer stuck in traditional values, has just lost her job and her boyfriend. And a hustler farm boy who refuses to follow his father's footsteps, wanting to be an actor and travel the world.

They jump at the chance for an open audition call seeking unknown talent to participate in India's biggest entertainment awards ceremony, An Award show to be held in New York City. Little do they know that the show's promoter has selected them because they are the two worst auditions submitted and they've been given travel visa's and the Royal treatment only to serve a secret plan to sabotage the awards show for revenge.

Oblivious to the plot to exploit and embarrass them in front of the world's media, our heroes embark on a screwball adventure taking them from the villages of India to the fast- paced culture shock of Time Square. They find themselves thrown into the high society life of superstar celebrities, blackmail, betrayal and rock & roll. A zany conquest that puts them up against a mob, power-mad divas of the movie industry and a hilarious kidnapping plan to rid the world of India's biggest movie personality.

Not only do they survive but they find a friendship between them that helps them defy the odds and become superstars in an unexpected twist of fate. They find a new-found belief in themselves when everyone else had given up, and they find the key to a happier and more meaningful life, not solely relying on fame and fortune but with friendship, love, and respect.

Bollywood sheds its inhibitions and takes broad swipes at itself in Welcome To New York, a mindless yet harmless comedy built upon incidents that take place in and around a glitzy awards show held in the Big Apple. Truth be told, parts of the film are fun. If only all of it was equally so, this piece of unpretentious whimsy might have been a far breezier ride. But it is a big, imposing IF that stares us in the face as the film unfolds at a jaunty pace. ...Read full review
Welcome To New York is not a film with a story or a message. It`s a mishmash of IIFA footage, with intermittent spoofs about Bollywood`s vanity. It`s also a platform for actors like Rana Daggubatti, Aditya Roy Kapur and Riteish Deshmukh to remind us that they exist. The film fails miserably in its intent if the intent were to spoof Bollywood, as it only does that for the sake of punchlines and does not explore it better. ...Read full review
Accept this invitation only if you are really out of your mind or want to kill some time, literally. By the time you walk out of the film you would have lost track of all that is sensible in the world. Consider yourself forewarned. ...Read full review
When you hear Karan Johar, playing Karan Johar, he who wears many Bollywood hats and limited-edition designer shoes, say: Vaada? But what about my Prada? you laugh, as you are meant to. You hope that that will set the tone for Welcome To New York, and settle in for a so bad-its-terrific film. ...Read full review
`All that glitters isn`t gold`! Chakri Toleti`s `Welcome To New York` proves this saying just right. Made with the blessings of the IIFA awards, the first question which instantly strikes in your mind is `Why was this film even made in the first place? What were the makers smoking? ...Read full review
On the whole, this movie does not even fall in the trashy category. Even some of the worst films have unintentional humour, this doesnt even has that to boast of. ...Read full review
All the clues you need to know what the film Welcome to New York is about, are in the opening credits. The producer is an event agency Wizcraft, the force behind IIFA. The special thanks list includes every star and musical talent that walked the green carpet at the New York edition of the international film awards function. The director is Chakri Toleti, and he takes the spoof genre and showcases how you butcher it. It would, therefore, not been incorrect to say this is a Welcome to the IIFA movie. ...Read full review
There is a scene in Welcome to New York in which Karan Johar, playing a version of himself, meets Diljit Dosanjh, playing Teji, a wannabe actor from Punjab. Both are in New York for the IIFA Awards. Karan is hosting the awards while Teji is attending as a talent contest winner. Teji goes into full fan mode and continues even when Karan gets out of the elevator and then proceeds to get kidnapped dont ask why, its too convoluted. ...Read full review
Welcome to New York, starring Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha and Karan Johar, isnt merely a bad film, or even a terrible one. Its depressing. Not because the plot is all over the place (it is!), not because the actors appear to be doing whatever they like (they are!), and not because it has no vision or ambition (it doesnt!) but because its an exercise in sheer pointlessness. Really, this film has no reason to exist. ...Read full review
