Thumbs up Om Shanti Om - entertaining mashup of Karz and Madhumati

Mods, please dont merge my thread with any other. Thanks.

Saw this movie and I must say - masst timepass!! This movie is a good timepass.

Shahrukh Khan and director Farah Khan have pulled off another successfull box office hit. The movie is a funny and clever remake and mashup of the old time hit Karz and the even older classic Madhumati.

The movie is nothing intelligent but a good dose of tasty junk food for the mind. The movie mocks and parodies the movies of yesteryears and even the movies of today. There was some controversy of veteran Manoj Kumar being offended, but trust me, the movie parodies every veteran and the traits of movie makers and actors.

I dont wish to tell you more about the movie as its a clever plot mashup of Karz and Madhumati. That should be enough. The songs are good. Two numbers are quite hummable and well picturised. Infact one of the song reminds me of the old movie where Amitabh is a waiter and all the stars walk into the party. The newcomer Deepika Padukone is hot. Too slim but good looking.

For all of you who are being prevented by reviews or folks who are always 'oh no Hindi movies are shit and Hollywood movies are made of gold' should just go see this film. Very entertaining.

10 years Bollywood is on the way to overtake Hollywood. In many western countries Hindi movies are no longer weekend fair but shown daily in proper theatres alongside Hollywood movies. Local people enjoy them. After one or two movies they get bored of songs is another story.

Sorry BhaYa ... Bollywood movies are not shit ... but some of us have gotten past the stage where you can sit throw 3 hours of sobs, cries and "Kash tu meri kokh se janam naa leta" ... "kya is din ke liye meine tumhe janam diya" ... "diakr he tujh jaise bette per".

Three movies I have watched in past three years have been fun ... Hum tumhare kaun lagte hein ... good solid family entertainment. One where Shakti Kapoor played dead ... Sanjay was good ... two girls were bloody ugly. Lage raho Munnabhai I found most fun ... songs, girl playing radio dj, and the sidekick and the bad guy Sirdarji ... excellent cast.

Challo Bhai aapka OSO bi dekh lenge ...

Re: Om Shanti Om - entertaining mashup of Karz and Madhumati

Tantuji, Over the years, living away from home, I now miss the very same 'Kaash tumhe paida karnese pehle main mar gayi hoti' type of movies. However, not all Bollywood movies are good and never have been. But when you want three hours of solid junk food for your tired brain, then Om Shanti Om is a good tasty bhelpuri. And to top it all, this movie has mocked our very own Hindi movies and FilmFare award type ceremonies.

Watch with an open mind and you will enjoy this movie.

Sounds like a fun movie.. will watch it. I like the junk food type of movies. Although I am not sure if SRK can pull off this kind of comedy.. will have to watch.. I think Govinda was the king in this genre, before he got into politics. I have this DVD of Govinda songs with gems like "meri pant bhi sexy", raja babu songs, etc.. SRK couldnt hold a candle to that..

SRK does not do the comedy but the situations and other characters are comic in these situations.

Sach sach bol - kitna daaru piya tha is picture ko pekhne ke time? Or were you smoking something special?

This was possibly the worst movie I have seen in recent memory. No head - no tail. Seemed to drag on and on ....

This was not even a David Dhawan style movie ... they tried to do a little bit of Forrest Gump in here ... but failed. Horrible overacting and no acting.

The comedy you refer to ... i dont know what you are referring to. There are one or two scenes that make you want to smile, I'll give you that. But usually out of context and poorly done.

ANd the worst part of the movie ... the second half where they keep telling you .. "Picture abhi khatam nahin hui hai". Bhosdike .. mujhe maloom hai picture khatam nahin hui hai. Gaand kyon jala raha hai meri?

Re: Om Shanti Om - entertaining mashup of Karz and Madhumati

Full paisa vasool movie!!!

Aajkal misuc ko kya ho gaya hai? Na sanwariya ka music dhyan rakhne layak tha na OSO ka, inspite of the fact people were expecteging a musical fest from both movies.

OSO is mast time pass though.

SRK ab buddha dikhne laga hai.

Re: Om Shanti Om - entertaining mashup of Karz and Madhumati

I loved the movie too.

Shah Rukh Khan is my all time favorite star. I almost worship him. And I love comedy. Although this is not comic all throughout, it does provide periodic moments of laughter. Deepika Padhukone is fabulous. She's just too perfect... I'm almost in love with her!

Anyway, I liked the ending part too... kind of like Karz... only better!

For pure entertainment value I'd rate it 4/5

If you see the old classic Madhumati then you will realise that the ending is copied from it.

As for smelly - nahi baba, I just had a Coca Cola before seeing this movie. But still I liked it. I cannot imagine nor will I see Neetu Singh with a stubble (Ranbir Raj) and moustache less Anil Kapoor (Sonam Kapoor) in a movie where the sets look so gaudy, with poor lighting and overall no story.
