No Smoking is a neo-noir psychological thriller film.The story revolves around a man known as ‘K'(John Abraham),a narcissistic chain smoker who attempts to kick his habit by visiting a “rehabilitation” center run by a crazed Godman(Paresh Rawal), who employs unconventional,harsh methods to cure his addiction.

A gripping and well-crafted plot, intriguing symbolism and a surreal setting set this film apart.
