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)

Outrageously Ridiculous!!!
20 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow!! that was an awful waste of time and thank goodness, i did NOT waste my money on this pathetic movie. The most disappointing factor of this movie is Shah Rukh Khan's acting. The first half of his Om Prakash portrayal was tolerable...but what happened to Om Kapoor? Why is he so pathetic. Acting was immeasurably annoying...too over-dramatic, gee, there's a limit to what one can take. It's just disgusting seeing such a well-established, sophisticated, mature actor...trying to look all swell like Salman or whoever but looking completely foolish. Why can't he just be a natural actor and not try to be like someone else for God sake. Moreover, the movie was fully predictable, exaggerated performances (can't figure out whether that was Farah's intention), a total masala movie, a dis to ones intelligence and a complete mockery of the Indian Cinema.

I believe the only reasons to why it gained tremendous fame at the box-office are because of the countless star appearances and of course, SRK-FK pair. Otherwise i find no other reasons to why the movie is empowering the rest. However, I didn't expect much from Farah as a director but I did expect quite a lot more from SRK as an ACTOR. In the end, we always count on the actor, sometimes not taking much account of the direction.

Therefore, I would not recommend anyone to watch this movie if you're looking for some intense performances or a good story. But if you're willing to take the risk, then do so. Or unless you're an ardent fan of SRK and Farah, then there's no one stopping you.
