As a spoof of the 1970s Bollywood, Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om is well-conceived and executed. As a story about reincarnation, it disappoints.

The team of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and A-list-choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan have pushed the Main Hoon Na gentle masala movie parody to repetitive extremes.

Has a wow factor unequalled by any Hindi film in memory.

It's entertaining in the way that a good musical comedy, whether it's Singing in the Rain, or Hairspray, is entertaining. Full of color, energy, and unpretentious confidence.

At almost three hours long the film drags a bit, but you'll have more fun at Om Shanti Om than most of the Hollywood movies released today. Watching it, you can't help but smile.

Audience Reviews for Om Shanti Om

Not as good as I'd expected from Farah Khan, having liked her debut film as a director "Main Hoon Na" very much. Yet, not an absolute crap.

Fantastic movie!! Great story plot. Shahrukh Khan gives a stellar performance in this movie about unrequited love and reincarnation. Amazing music, especially with a musical sequence that involves an array of fellow Bollywood actors and actresses! Great movie by Farah Khan. Absolutely love this movie!! Gotta see.
