Are we complaining? Not really, because the film's meant to be mad, mindless and zany. And we are meant to be happy, headless and nostalgic.

Of the cast, Arjun Rampal is consistently first-rate as the suave villain. And Deepika Padukone is fantastic, so surprisingly assured that you marvel at her poised debut.

The film lacks creativity in the second half, failing to bring its reincarnation tale to a satisfactory conclusion.

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.

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.
