Om Shanti Om Bollywood Movie Review

Finally, the much awaited biggie of this year is out and is surely here to make a thunderous presence. Farah Khan's ' Om Shanti Om' with the dream star cast of Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone , Arjun Rampal and Shreyas Talpade has done it yet again.On similar lines with reincarnation stories , the movie starts with the backdrop of the 70s with Om (SRK), a junior artiste struggling to make it  big and is madly in love with Shanti (Deepika) the reigning superstar. His dream to reach the top fizzles out when he dies in a mishap and this incident changes his life forever, he is now born in the present day and is a top star but then he fails to understand those flashes of those voices he hears, the 'Flames' that go up , his mother chasing his car sets him on a soul search to understand the roots of his past birth.Interestingly, Shanti (Deepika) reappears in the present day too but in a different aspect and how the movie takes you into a very mystic journey forms the rest of the film.

Om Shanti Om Hindi Cinema Review

Farah Khan has scored full points in her direction, she is improving by the day and with the excellent combination of Mushtaq Sheikh (writer) she has once again confirmed that she knows what she wants and how she can present it to the audience to give them the maximum. She is a full pack of surprises when it comes to the story and catches the viewer off guard many times, that's a very intelligent work which is hard to find these days. Supporting her with the story is an excellent cinematography by V Manikandan , some rich sets by Sabu Cyril, a very tacky dialogue pack by Mayur Puri and to top it all a heart rendering background music by Sandeep Chowta added with some pleasant numbers by Vishal - Shekhar duo especially the 31-star track and 'Dard -e - Disco' is the highlight of the film. The icing on the cake is the cast , SRK leads the pack as usual with a mind blowing performance and once again proves to the masses that he still has not forgotten his roots as a mass actor. Deepika shows equal maturity sharing screen space with a top star and has all the ingredients to become a successful heroine.The surprise package comes in the form of Arjun Rampal who has carried out the negative role with exceptional ease and Shreyas Talpade who proves that he has no weak knees when it comes to performing with the king of Bollywood.The other roles carried out by Kiron Kher, Javed Sheikh and Bindu add to the spice. On the flip side, the second half could have been well tailored but  some intelligent editing by Shirish Kunder keeps you busy.

Om Shanti Om Filem Review

Walking into the theatre with an apprehension of 'Karz' and 'Karan Arjun' in mind , you will be in for a roller coaster ride as you not only get a taste of it but then more than what you can take. Every scene has something new to offer and there is a lot of freshness, it is like a journey that takes you back to the nostalgic 70s and then gets you back to the present day life with some real comfort.This is an out and out entertainer so don't expect to get messages to reflect or some thought provoking ideals to work on, it wont work here. It can be branded more on the 'sit back and enjoy' genre and will give your money's worth.

Bharatstudent verdict: A must see!!! Don't miss it with your heart and not with your head and you will carry it on for a long time... a definite block buster for this season.
