Summary: 'Om Shanti Om' is, simply, one of the best films ever made. 'Singing in the Rain' is the closest reference cinematically and thematically, both films are about the inside of the movie business Hollywood and Bollywood respectively. Baz Lurhman was going for the same kind of thing with 'Moulin Rouge' and - despite hyper-active trickery and bombast - managed to express romance, art and music pretty well, though not as well as is done here.
Summary: Bring out the popcorn, grab a cola and get ready for 2 and a half hours of laughs, songs, color, emotions, and spoofs. If you're a fan of the Indian film industry and have kept up with the news, Om Shanti Om is for you. If you love entertainment to the max, OSO is definitely for you! Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om spares nobody, not even its makers when it comes to poking fun.
Summary: Reincanation, Hindi cinema, love, betrayal are some of the themes Farah Khan's delightful and crazy comedy Om Shanti Om deals with. But frankly, it never really matters. This film is simply one of the most entertaining films made in recent times. A spoof of Hindi cinema of past and recent times, the film both pokes fun at it and celebrates its unique, inimitable style. As the story progresses the movie becomes even more alluring.
Summary: if i knew the plot i would have never seen it.....really guys............old Hindi movies were made like this.......only that they were better..............i don't like farah khan......but that ain't the reason i don't like this movie nut its because it wasn't directed well..........the second half start is stupidly done without any sayin that SRK has reincarnated???............OK now lets come to deepika.....she is beautiful......OK.......but what the........
Summary: Om Shanti Om is a major disappointment. The fact that it is such a terrible let down, is yet to sink in. What was Farah Khan (director) thinking? How could she make such a bad film, after directing a decent entertainer in Main Hoon Na? What was Shahrukh Khan thinking when he approved the script? How could almost everything go so wrong in a movie?The movie has major flaws. Both the first half and the second have a lot of similarities, a few scenes actually are repeated!
Hats off to the audience for making it such a huge hit

Summary: I would have never wasted my time writing over this piece of crap,popularly known as Om Shanti Om...but I really wish to salute the audience who made it a huge blockbuster.Its said that anything and everything is possible...the movie proves it.For someone like me,who in all his humility believes that mankind exists in its present wonderful form because of its sensibilities,its actually a miracle that people appreciated this THING!! What I do write as a review..
Summary: The movie is full of all sorts of "Cheap Thrills" as I call them; right from SRK saving his lady love from fire (incidentally, there's a lot of fire in the movie..) to a Ghost of the dead lady love appearing to take revenge right at the end of the movie. Yes, Deepika Padukone is OK as a new actor, but then I wouldn't expect much quality cinema from her, either - she seems comfortable keeping the Indian crowds whistling at her !!
Summary: Even if one doesn't compare OSO to Karz, OSO comes up short! It pleases the NRI population that has only seen 6 Hindi films till date, and all of them are either Yash Chopra-SRK or Karan Johan-SRK films! It's obvious that they will like the movie as they've not had the opportunity to watch better Hindi Cinema. SRK is their world! The other segment it is targeted at is the teenyboppers or the masses that admire SRK for being a self-made star!
Summary: Before some days, this movie was creating huge hype due to promotional events and trailers on Indian TV Channels, on Internet media. This hype resulted, that in my small city, with few cinema halls, there were 10 shows per day, all house full for first 3 days. Reading the reviews (from biased internet websites) I went on to see this movie with expectations of laughter, fun, of course extraordinary performance for SRK.
Summary: This is one of the most horrible movies of Shahrukh to hit the theaters after a long while. Possibly one of the most idiotic films. I know that even before the film was released, it was assumed that anyone who goes to watch this movie should leave his/her thinking caps behind as it's not your usual romance drama movie. But that's not it! This movie deals with reincarnation/ghost/70's era/comedy/drama/revenge/thrill and what not.
