Just got back from watching Om Shanti Om, and liked it enough to refer to it casually as OSO without feeling stupid!
After hearing horror stories about Saawariya (which means “Are you dying?” in colloquial Tamil!), and reviews about OSO being a ‘can watch once’ movie, it was with a bit of trepidation that we went. But then, it was a Saturday evening, and the two-theatre wannabe multiplex (Grandly called Talkie Town, but in reality a thinly-repackaged ‘complex’ of two theatres called Krishna and Narasimha – more about this in a separate post maybe) was too near to even complain about the drive.
The movie was quite enjoyable, and proceeded at a decent clip. “The first half is a lot of fun,” friends had warned, “and the second half is okkaaaay.” But surprisingly, I found the first half ‘okkaaaay’ and the second half thoroughly entertaining. But hey – I loved Sivaji and Chandramukhi too!
