yet liked the movie!!
Om Shanti Om might have a familiar reincarnation storyline, but the treatment and the mystic elements are just great. Om Shanti Om has a lot of scenes where many of the leading actors in Bollywood including the lead actor of this film spoofing their own hit movies, criticizing the super stardom and many such malpractices. This film is predictable, but the Farah Khan touch is there in the film which gives this ample entertainment value.
