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.

The second half finds the audience inhaling the fumes of a rocket with more fizz than fury.

With themes of loss and grief delicately handled, this makes for charming viewing.

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.

Once you decide to suspend all belief in logic from the preposterous proceedings, there is much to enjoy in this witty and inventive camp entertainer.

If you like Bollywood for essentially what it is, you'll love this. If you don't like Bollywood, this may answer a lot of questions, and likely leave you with a smirk on your face regardless.

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.

While Om Shanti Om loses steam by its last act, the stylish, smart, hilarious ride to that point is rewarding enough.
