Cigarette Ki Tarah is the only film set for release this weekend but one can’t expect any smoke or fire here. The film, though ready for quite some time, is arriving as filler between two biggies – Khiladi 786 and Dabangg 2.
It is almost a given that the film would struggle to find an all-India release for itself. Marking the debut of male lead Bhoop Yaduvanshi, the film has seen some sort of promotion for itself but that is hardly the kind that could entice a viewer to step into theatres. Moreover, the film’s title hardly conveys what it is all about.
All of this means that while Khiladi 786 and Talaash would continue to have a free run in theatres, by the time Dabangg 2 hits the screens the ground would be set for it to make merry.
