Enjoyable popcorn flick!
9 November 2007 | by mnalgirkarSee all my reviews

Growing up in the 70's and having thoroughly enjoyed Hindi (not yet Bollywood) movies from that decade, I was intrigued when I read reviews about the 70's references in this movie. I wasn't disappointed. The first half of the movie uses some interesting special effects, characterization of stars from that era, and also some very subtle references to stars and film-makers to depict that decade. The cameos of prominent stars throughout the movie adds to the fun factor of the movie.

The movie offers light-hearted entertainment, several enjoyable songs, and some good performances; especially from Shahrukh Khan and the débutante Deepika. Although the movie plot and several key segments are something you have seen before in other movies, OSO's format is irreverent, goofy and enjoyable. Watch this movie for nostalgia, and an overall good time!
