I think this movie had a lot of potential but just... got lost? The ideas, from Baba Bangali to the very idea of quitting smoking cold turkey are fascinating yet somehow they didn't gel in a way they should have. I remember drawing a map to keep up with the levels of the treatment, but it became impossible to keep up with. I'll definitely watch it again though, if only for John and Ayesha's acting which I liked.
