Critic Reviews for No Smoking

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

The film fails to entertain in the conventional sense of the term, and often feels like a documentary.

Top Critic

The film swirls about frantically in the effort to entertain, has a terrible Bob Fosse-like dance sequence and generally overstays its welcome.

You'll be wishing this weirdly uneven tale came with its own government health warning - if only so you come prepared for an assortment of incongruous musical numbers and performances that couldn't be broader if they tried.

While intended as a comedy, there's not a scintilla of wit to be found here, let alone an honest-to-goodness laugh, and at over two hours, it goes way beyond a joke.

Independent (UK)

A real oddity, shifting gear after the first half-hour from whimsical melodrama to morality-tale-cum-psychodrama.

Quite demented.

Highly recommended for if you are looking for something strange, interesting and intriguing. Anurag Kashyap at his best.

Starts well but then loses track. The songs are great but badly placed. If only it was a better movie ...
