Poster for Om Shanti Om

An ode to the great Hindi spectacles of the '70s and amassive hit in India, Om Shanti Om is a Bollywood film about love and re-incarnation, "For some love stories one lifetime is not enough". More

"Om (Khan) lives for the movies. He is a junior artist working in 70s Bollywood and dreams of one day being the biggest film star in India. His love is Shantipriya (Pandukone) - the queen bee of the industry and someone whom Om can never hope to have. But fate works in mysterious ways. After an incident in which Shantipriya is literally roasted alive by her money-hungry husband (Arjun Rampal), and in which Om too reaches a not too fancy end saving her, we fast forward to present-day Bollywood and the tables turn. Now Om (yes, Om again) is the superstar, winning awards and attending glitzy parties. But his quest to unravel the truth about his previous life haunts him. And like any good Indian movie, justice is served and the baddie must die!" [BBC].
