Farah Khan's 'Om Shanti Om' is easily one of the most entertaining films in recent times. Reason? The film has all that it takes to be a blockbuster, which it became in its box office run. The film has got humor, action, romance, 31 stars appearing in it and fantastic music score. What Else do I need as a film and SRK fan? Nothing, OSO is truly a excellent entertainer in all aspects. Two Thumbs up!
Pluses of the film: The film , as said before is a complete entertainer. The music score by Vishal-Shekhar is outstanding. The entire crew has worked amazingly, especially Sabu Cyril who recreates the 70's look to perfection. Solid Performances: Shahrukh is superb. I love him. Arjun Rampal is effective as the villain. Deepika is a superstar material, only one thing? why did she not dub for herself? Shreyas Talpade is natural. Kirron Kher is fabulous. Satish Shah and Bindu are hilarious in cameos. Other are good. The 31 star-studded song elevates the film to a much higher level.
Minuses: The film's second hour is not as impact as its first. The climax is average.
On the whole, 'Om Shanti Om' is escapist cinema at its best. Watch this all-time blockbuster!
