No Smoking - Welcome to New Age Cinema of Beauty and Class
9 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Throw away the colorful clothes, all the expensive jewellery and welcome to realistic cinema.

A theme which is hard to make a movie on, attempted by a writer/director of many realistic movies like Black Friday and Satya.

What appears on the screen is true magic of a director who thinks a different way. A second of this movie cannot be missed, a minute is as good as not watching the movie.

Put on your thinking caps for a movie. See, visualize, enthrall.

This movie is a must-watch for those who love change, who love to think about every scene in the movie and analyze.

Commercial? -- 0% value.

Cinematic Experience? - 200% value.

It did take me two full times to watch this movie to understand the whole concept of this movie.

It did make me think 10 times before I touched my next cigarette.

I applaud you Mr Anurag Kashyap. Screw the critics who slammed you.
