NOW DVD Rip !
Shah Rukh Khan strikes back with what have made him a name to bank upon in Indian Cinema. ‘Om Shanti Om’ is a genre revisited that once gave the Hindi film industry its by much famous nick identity, Bollywood. OM SHANTI OM is paisa vasool entertainment. We haven’t seen SRK in a hardcore masala film since quite some time.
Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Rampal, Kiron Kher
This is the story of â€˜Omâ€™ (Shah Rukh Khan) and â€˜Shantiâ€™ (Deepika Padukone). He was a junior artist (an extra) in the 70â€™s. She was the Superstar of the 70â€™s. He was her biggest fan. He was madly in love, then they die. â€¦and then started the saga of â€˜Om Shanti Omâ€™. For some love stories one lifetime is not enough.
Some 30 years after the death of Om Prakash Makhija, we meet Om Kapoor in 2007. The same face, the same name, the same person. As his previous life starts returning to his memory, he must face how he died & what he died for, resulting in a vendetta to seek out the murderer and bring him to justice.
What we liked about the film
Almost everything (Yes, we admit, we’ve sold our souls to SRK)! Which is 98.35 per cent of the film! The film is more a take off on the re-birth formula, made famous by Karz in the ’70s than a tribute; but it does brilliantly. Farah Khan has made everyone act superbly (yes, including Arjun Rampal!). There are so many things to watch out for so we will just list a few highlights:
The cameos by almost the entire industry (Sush, where were you?!?) The fantastic one-liners from ’70s Bollywood; the digital effects ala Forrest Gump. Deepika Padukone. Deepuka Padukone. Deepika Padukone. SRK playing a brash star brat. SRK’s abs (of course!). The witty vision of the filmmaker
