PostSubject: Review On Om Shanti Om (OSO)   Sat Nov 24, 2007 7:23 am

Plot :

Set in the 1970's, Om Prakash Makhija (Shah Rukh Khan) is a junior artist in the film industry. He and his friend Pappu (Shreyas Talpade) are trying to become big heroes one day. Omís mother, Bela Makhija (Kirron Kher), inspires and encourages her son to become a hero. Omís whole family consists of junior artists. Omís love interest is the country's heart throb and the star of the film, Dreamy Girl, Shantipriya (Deepika Padukone).

During the Dreamy Girl premiere, the pallu (scarf) of Shantiís sari gets entangled with Omís hand. Pappu steals an exclusive pass that belongs to Mr. Manoj Kumar to watch the premiere, but have to run out when the real Manoj Kumar appears. While being dragged out of the theater Om manages to get Shanti's attention and he is awed by Shantiís gaze.

During the shooting of film in which Shanti stars and Om is a bit player, the set catches fire in an uncontrolled manner. Shanti is trapped inside the set and Om rescues her, hurting himself. After the incident, Shanti comes to thank him personally, and incidentally she overhears Omís love for her. They become good friends. Pappu says to Shanti that Om is a big superstar of south India film industry, and even calls her to watch him during a shoot. However, the truth is revealed he is really a junior artist and not a big star. She tells him that she thinks that he is a star to her, and he can ask her to to do anything he wants, except jump into a fire. He asks her to spend one evening together.

Shanti comes to meet Om hidden in a burkha. Om asks Shanti to bring out her hand and ask for love to anyone she loves. So Shanti goes back to find her love. But after that day they often meet each other. Next day Om manages to pass security and tries to meet Shanti in her dressing room. He overhears that Shanti is already married to Mukesh Mehra (Arjun Rampal) and is also pregnant. Mukesh first says that he wants to keep their marriage under wraps as a married heroine is not accepted in tinsel town. Mukesh also tells Shanti that he cannot officially accept this because a rich businessman is financing his upcoming film Om Shanti Om for which he requires 40 lakhs rupees. The truth is he is getting married to the daughter of the businessman. Om gets heartbroken and tries to avoid Shanti.

One night as Om is sitting near a set of Om Shanti Om he finds Mukesh and Shanti driving in to the set. Om creeps into the set and sees Mukesh telling Shanti that he has decided to cancel the film and he is going to reveal his marriage with her to the public. He also tells Shanti that he will destroy the set after they have a marriage ceremony on it. Om hears all of this and leaves, heartbroken.

After Om is gone, Mukesh changes his behavior and he holds Shanti responsible for his financial loss and sets fire in the set of the film. Om sees Mukesh going away in his car. He finds Shanti trapped inside, crying out for help. He tries to help her, but Mukesh's security guards beat him up. Even after the beating, Om tries to save Shanti, but in vain. In the blast Om is thrown outside and he sees the set explode, killing Shanti. As he runs for help, he is hit by a car owned by Rakesh Kapoor (Javed Sheikh), a well known actor who was rushing his pregnant wife to a hospital. Rakesh takes him to the hospital, but Om dies.

The film moves 30 years on after the incident. Om is reincarnated as Om Kapoor, son of Rakesh Kapoor, who was born right after Om Makhija dies and has a burn mark like the Om sign on his wrist (where Om had a tattoo). He is seen as a rising star, a star's kid, and a rich brat, who is also known as "OK".

Om Kapur sees Om Makhija's mother running along side his car. He does not recognize her yet but she recognizes him. Deciding to move onto a new film project, he has his assistant set up a shoot for the next day. They choose the same burnt studio and set of the old Om Shanti Om. As soon as he sees it, Om gets the feeling that he has been there before. As Om visits the burnt set, he remembers everything about his past life. The Filmfare Award ceremony follows, in which Om wins best actor. During the party that follows, he meets Mukesh, who has been a popular Hollywood producer for the past 25 years.

Om goes to meet Pappu and Bela, Omís mother. He decides to remake the film Om Shanti Om with Mukesh as a way to trap him into confessing for his crime. During the audition for the role of Shanti, the crew meets Sandy or Sandhya, a look-a-like of Shantipriya. They take Mukesh to the burnt film set (where he killed Shantipryia) to announce the beginning of the film. Here, Om tries to re-enact the whole murder with the help of the new cast of Om Shanti Om. Sandy often appears to make Mukesh believe that Shanti has turned into a ghost.

However, Mukesh comes to know about the plan. Om faces Mukesh and they started fighting. Suddenly a chandelier hits Mukesh's head, making him unconscious. After he wakes up, he finds there is no one in the function except him and Om. Sandy(that is what the audience are lead to believe) appears and starts to speak lines which were not part of their plan, lines that nobody knew about. She reveals that Mukesh came back after burning the set to take care of the body (the body of the real Shantipryia) and bury it underneath the set's floor. Om realizes that she is actually Shanti's ghost. The ghost Shanti kills Mukesh by making a chandelier fall on him. At the end, Om sees the ghost of Shanti tearfully bid him good-bye. She and runs up the stairs and disappears.It is implied that Om and Sandy (who is not the reincarnation of Shantipriya) get together in the end.

The film's score and soundtrack are composed by the musical duo, Vishal-Shekhar with lyrics by renowned lyricist, Javed Akhtar. Composer A. R. Rahman opted out of this movie, as T-Series did not agree to share the copyrights of music with him and the lyricist.

Om Shanti Om is all set to create another record of sorts by going in for an unheard of 2000 prints (worldwide) release. This is the highest number of prints (including digital) for any Indian movie till date. Om Shanti Om has set a record of sorts as it has registered pre advanced booking of 18, 000 tickets in a chain of theatres in national capital Delhi a couple of days before the advance booking was to start.

Baba Films, production and distribution company, has offered a record Rs.110 million for the rights to the Mumbai Circuit, easily surpassing the highest amount ever paid for the territory of Rs.85 million for Jaan-E-Mann.

SRKís Red Chillies Entertainment has reportedly sold the world rights for the film to Eros International for an amount between Rs.720-750 million.

Sound Track :
The soundtrack for the film released on September 18, 2007. Indiafm.com gave the music 4 out of 5 stars saying Om Shanti Om is easily one of the most complete scores by Vishal-Shekhar and Javed Akhtar. The track Deewangi Deewangi has a total of 31 stars performing in it.

Reviews :
Indiafm's Taran Adarsh gave movie awesome 4 out 5 star rating stating the follows " At the box-office, the film will set new records in days to come and has the power to emerge one of the biggest hits of SRK's career." SearchIndia.com gave the movie the thumbs-down stating that "A dispiritingly commonplace theme of reincarnation packaged in a disjointed, tracing-paper-thin plot with ho-hum performances by the lead actors renders a mediocre movie that only addled fans of Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan would love"

Rajeev Mansad of CNN-IBN gives Om Shanti Om 3 out of 5. Nikhat Kazmi of The Times of India gave 3.5 of 5 stars stating the film is a total paisa vasool and a true tribute to Karz. Behindwoods.com gave it a rating of 3/5 saying it's a masala flick and the heavily flawed script doesn't matter as its entertaining. Hindustan Times's Khalid Mehmood gave the film 4/5 saying that om shanti om is total brainless mazaa.
Movie review feedback website Mouthshut.com gives Om Shanti Om 3.5 out of 5 saying that it is mind blowing film and a must watch. This film is recommended to everyone who wants to see a fairytale love story.
