Storyline

Om Prakash Makhija is a Junior Artiste in Bollywood, who is infatuated with actress Shantipriya, and hopes to marry her someday. His hopes come to reality when he rescues her from a fire and they go on a date. Shortly thereafter he finds out that she is married to a film producer, Mukesh Mehra, and is expecting his child. He then watches in horror as Mukesh, after luring her in an abandoned studio, sets it afire. Om attempts to rescue her in vain, and he eventually is killed. 30 years later, Om is reborn as the only son of yesteryear Bollywood actor, Rajesh Kapoor, and is himself an actor. His memories start to return when he meets with his widowed mother, Bela, from his previous birth. He also meets with Mukesh and together they decide to make a movie 'Om Shanti Om'. Om then hires a look-alike of Shantipriya, and hopes to force a confession out of Mukesh - but things go awry and Om finds his life endangered once again. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Creative Bankruptsy!!
16 November 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yesterday after resisting myself for a long time i saw "Chak De! India" and today by chance i happened to see "Om Shanti Om". And i couldn't help comparing the two movies. But then this comment is about OSO so i will restrict myself to that. The title of this comment will tell you what i think of this movie in particular and Bollywood in general.

Agreed that SRK is a brilliant and versatile actor. Agreed that a movie need not be original to be entertaining. But shouldn't a movie have a story? And preferably a script, even if not original? OSO has none. Its a shame that the so called "power group" of Bollywood decided to make a movie but couldn't find someone decent enough who can think of a good story and write a decent script. All they could do was get all their friends together, have lots of song and dance sequences, write corny dialogs showing how good they are at spoofing and the result was OSO. It would be better if Farah Khan restricts herself to choreography.

But then the movie is making good money at the box office.People are calling it an "enternairer" and i seem to be the only fool trying to justify why i gave a two to this movie. Movies like OSO have made me stop watching Bollywood movies. But then last week i also saw an unknown movie called "The Blue Umbrella" and it reassured me that good cinema can still be expected from Bollywood.
