Movie Review: Om Shanti Om.

Om Shanti Om is a 2007 Bollywood film directed and choreographed by Farah Khan. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles as the protagonists while Shreyas Talpade, Arjun Rampal, and Kirron Kher feature in supporting roles. Arjun Rampal is the antagonist in the movie. Nearly thirty stars from yesteryear and today are referred to or show up during the duration of the film, including twenty-eight of them (not including the stars of the film) in one song alone.

I think the story is weak. But acting was good. I liked Farah Khan Main Hoon Na a lot but I am really not very happy after watching this movie. Story is not good and realistic I think. But overall the movie is good.


Movie starts with 70s era where Om(Shah Rukh Khan) is a juniour artiste who wants to make it big in Bollywood. And encouraging him are his friend Pappu (Shreyas Talpade) and his mother (Kirron Kher) who was also a juniour artiste. Om loves the superstar Shantipriya (Deepika Padukone) and is also able to be friends with her..But he is heart broken when he gets to know that Shanti is already married to a renowned producer Mehra (Arjun Rampal) who wants to keep their marriage under wraps as a married heroine is not accepted in tinsel town. But he burns her alive when he discovers Shanti is pregnant. Om is killed too while rescuing her.

Shah Rukh is reborn as Om (what a co incidence!) to a superstar and eventually becomes a superstar later-Om Kapoor a.k.a O.K. and as he gets all his memory back abruptly, he decides to take his revenge by killing Arjun Rampal..and in his search of finding a look alike of Deepika Padukone(Sandy), he actually finds a girl who looks exactly like her (can you beat that!!) And then starts the process of converting Sandy into Shantipriya, and as Rampal realises she is just a look alike, and Om’s plan fails, the ghost of Shanti comes and takes the revenge.
