Cigarette Ki Tarah is an unintelligent thriller which looks like a wannabe Bhatt camp film. It’s inspired by Jism and Kalyug, just that this one’s painfully silly.
Nikhil Dabur from Kanpur ( Bhoop Yaduvanshi) loves to hate his alcohol-addicted father and ogle at skimpily clad girls. In spite of his bad jokes, loud wannabe personality, beer addiction and lecherous gaze, he has a good friend in the form of Kanishka ( Yuvika Chaudhary). Kanishka loves Nikhil, so she calls him to Goa and even gives him a job. Nikhil, however, prefers bad girls.
So he falls for an ‘arrogant’ Jessica (Madhurima Tuli). Jay-Si-Ca, as he calls her, calls Nikhil ‘genuine idiot’ and ‘very irritating’ (and we agree) but he chases her until she starts finding him interesting. The two get drunk, get intimate and even discuss marriage the next day but Nikhil finds himself in deep trouble as a ‘murder’ changes everything. Who is the culprit?
Cigarette Ki Tarah is unintentionally funny and fascinating for everything defies logic. Why would a sane woman fall for a guy who loves to stare at girls’ breasts blatantly! Why would anyone like a guy who says things like, ‘Kya tum meri leg pulling kar rahi ho‘? Or even sing songs like Ek ladki ko dekha to aisa laga, jaise mandir ki ghanti, jaise bubbly ka bunty, jaise..! The movie has many such amusing dialogues. Nikhil’s over-dramatic father adds to the humour.
Since the film has been shot in Goa, foreigners of almost every age are used as silly props. A Russian girl, who speaks terrible Hindi and only wears hot pants, also gets enough footage.
The film’s suspense track is decent but that comes too late. The love triangle gets prominence and it is terrible.
Madhurima Tuli and Prashant Narayanan are not bad, rest are all silly.
A rowdy brat from Kanpur goes to Goa and falls in love with an arrogant girl. She too loves him back but their love puts the Kanpuriya in trouble as he gets wrongly accused for committing a murder.
