Not all new directors and debutant actors leave an impression. There are some who make you wonder why they were launched in the first place. This is exactly the kind of reaction you'll have after watching, 'Cigarette Ki Tarah'. The film screams substandard quality right from the first frame and not much changes right till the very end.

What it's about?
A Kanpur lad, Nikhil Dabur (Bhoop Yaduvanshi) is a fearless, young man with no clear ambition in life. When childhood friend, Kanishka (Yuvika Chaudhary) asks him to move to Goa for work, he agrees immediately. Once in Goa, he falls in love with a mystery woman, Jessica (Madhurima Tuli) and things take a different course from then on. Our poor hero is arrested for the murder of his boss, Danny D'Gama (Sudesh Berry). It's standard whodunnit fare after this.

Once you've given up trying to figure why this script was even approved, you'll move on to criticise the cast. Bhoop Yaduvanshi is disappointing and his presence in almost every frame is painful. For a long time now, no actor has left us so frustrated, so much so that we have newfound respect for the actors from Bappi Lahiri's debut film, 'It's Rocking Dard-E-Disco'.

While Yuvika Chaudhary's giggles give you something to laugh about, Madhurima swims through the plot showing off her midriff. A few mandatory bedroom scenes and unnecessary songs on the beaches of Goa make it unbearable to sit through the very end. Sudesh Berry is an absolute disaster. If you liked him in J.P. Dutta's 'Border', then we strongly recommend that you NOT watch this one, as you may end up writing him off for life. Prashant Narayanan as the cop offers some hope, but by then, it is too late for even him to save this movie.

The title of the movie, like everything else, makes no sense at all. The comparison of a person in love to that of a cigarette is as intelligent as was the idea to make this movie. Akashaditya Lama's directorial debut feels much longer than it actually is. We'd prefer the 'Say No To Tobacco' advertisement by the Government of India to this film any day.

What to do?
Smoking kills, but we'd prefer that kind of death over watching this movie ever again. Go see 'Cigarette Ki Tarah' at your own risk.
