Seems there is something about fire which is not working with
First it was Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag which came with a
lot of fire but disappeared in smoke. Now No Smoking which
discourages people from 'lighting' a cigarette is on the way to
meeting the same fate.
Anurag Kashyap's narrative has managed to confuse, irritate and
disgust the audience more than any other Bollywood film released in
2007. What a pity because John Abraham has given his all to the
role and enacted the character with utmost sincerity.
If Friday's response is anything to go by, the film has met with
an absolute negative response from majority of audience as well as
critics. While the film's opening itself was barely average, the
sheer negativity amongst the audience is taking the film further
down the drain.
