John Abraham has been plain unlucky that his best performance
ever (yes, he is better in No Smoking than in
Water) hasn't quite fetched him the dividends as he
After being panned by most, No Smoking by Anurag
Kashyap got hurt further with final nail in the coffin being
Jab We Met success. Kashyap would have (rightly) been
hoping that since his film belonged to a completely different genre
than Jab We Met, it would find its place in the sun too.
However, audience seems to entertain itself with the feel-good
outing by Imtiaz Ali.
An unconventional screenplay hasn't helped No Smoking
either which means that the film would only have a week to salvage
itself to some extent before Om Shanti Om and
Saawariya arrive. Now that's sheer bad luck for John since
his hard work is quite visible in each of the frames.
As a central protagonist on whose shoulders the film rested, he
went all out to come up with a spirited act. Hope, his performance
gets its due in the long run at least!
