Om Shanti Om

I saw the movie a few days ago. I think the last movie I watched (in a theatre) was the Bong connection which was almost 6 months ago. I liked the movie. Its a good one time watch. Light and entertaining. Nothing new in the story but still I liked watching it. But then I doubt I will like to watch it again :)/:P

It was mostly funny and the rest was a mix of romantic + thriller. There is one dialogue from the movie which left me thinking and nodding in agreement -
Agar Kisi Cheez Ko Tum Dil Se Chaho Toh Poori Kaaynat Use Tumse Milane Ki Koshish Mein Lag Jaati Hai"

And the another great dialogue from the movie was "
Hamari filmon ki tarah hamari zindagi mein bhi end tak sab kuch theek hi ho jaata hai. Happees Ending! Aur agar theek na ho to woh ‘The End’ nahin! Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost..."

I felt these lines give a very optimistic outlook towards life. And I liked them. Remember the first few lines from a song in the movie "1942 : A Love Story"? I so love them till date
"Dil na-umeed to nahi, na-kaam hi to hai,
Lambi hai gham ki shaam, magar shaam hi to hai.."
Aren't these such beautifully written lines? With so much depth and feeling? I remember whenever I would feel let down and low I would hum these lines and things would start to look better :)

Coming back to Om Shanti Om, don't you think Shahrukh Khan has started to look old now? I haven't seen any of his movies lately besides this one so don't know how he looked in others but in this movie definitely he has started to show age on his face.


  1. I watched OSO on the weekend too and funny, that you mentioned the very two dialogues that impressed me too. The first one instantly reminded me of the lines about power of mind that I read in Robin Sharma's book. I quote " Awaken yourself to the power of your own mind to make things happen. Once you do, the universe will conspire with you to work magic in your life".

    And when SRK said the second dialogue, I found myself nodding, so true so true !

  2. SRK sure looks old ... too old to for a Romantic hero ...
    Though the dialogues mentioned are lovely ... I just hated the movie ...

  3. You are right, I felt the same.

    He should stick to Chak De kinda roles now!
    But I liked OSO

  4. Just saw OSO last night and agree with you on almost everything.. Liked the whole irreverent take on the sitar-ki-dhun when "Ma" comes in the picture...LOL
