Our Score
Writer/director Farah Khan (Main Hoon Na) reverses the recent Bollywood trend towards action and glamour, with this romantic and colourful supernatural romp. India's leading man Shah Rukh Khan stars here alongside newcomer Deepika Padukone in a story of thwarted passion, violence and rebirth that begins in the 1970s. Khan plays Om, a young artist madly in love with superstar actress Shanti (Padukone) But before their love can flourish, Khan meets with an untimely death - only to return years later determined to expose the truth. With themes of loss and grief delicately handled, this makes for charming viewing. Khan excels as the humorous Om while newcomer Padukone proves she has the acting ability to back up her flawless looks.
