It is by now well known that Farah Khan's Shahrukh Khan, Deepika
Padukone and Arjun Rampal starrer, Om Shanti Om, is about
reincarnation. The theme has already been used successfully in
movies like, Neel Kamal, Karz and Karan Arjun to
name a few. Though it will be a crime if one fails to mention the
mother of this genre, late Bimal Roy's 1958 classic,
Madhumati, starring Dilip Kumar and Vyajanthimala.
Coming back to Om Shanti Om, the director of the Diwali
extravaganza, Farah Khan has openly talked about the reincarnation
angle from day one, but rubbishes rumours of it being a rehashed
version of Subhash Ghai's Karz. The lady also adds that
Om Shanti Om is a fun-filled, feel good cinema and a pure
entertainer; hence there is little or no emphasis on the dark
This should set the record straight, once and for all!
