Om Shanti Om

The film is inspired from Bollywood movies from 70’s and 80’s. In other words, you can also say that it is old masala in new format. I think that people will enjoy the movie a lot, but for me it was very average. The makers have been too loyal to bollywood concept from 70’s and 80’s, and that is too much. For instance, there are missing various logical explanations in the script and the story/climax is predictable. The makers could have experimented and combined with latest scripting techniques and thereby increased the movie quality.

A number of the jokes are based on bollywood industry, i.e. persons/actors, movies, clichés, music and inside jokes. The fresh humor is a major advantage of the movie.

The cool image of Shahrukh Khan in the second half was too cool and sometimes hard to consume.

The music was just average.

Rating: 4 of 6
