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

Anthony Quinn
Independent (UK)

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.

No Smoking doesn't kill anything - not even time.

Derek Malcolm
London Evening Standard

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

Karl French
Financial Times

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

If and when Bollywood does deliver a crossover hit, it's likely this film-maker will be behind it.

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.

Quite demented.

Wendy Ide
Times (UK)

An enjoyably barmy movie that plunders from everything from Cabaret to Cocteau's Orphée.
