The underlining point of the story is that the film does good business when released and audience continue to watch the film even today.
Om was a career-changing film in the careers of Shivaraj Kumar and Upendra. The movie gave a completely new image for Shivanna and it gave a big break as a director to Uppi. It has earned cult status and won several awards.
Despite being controversial film for the content over violence and for casting the infamous rowdies like Jedarahalli Krishnappa, Bekkina Kannu (Cat Eye) Raajendra, Korangu and Tanveer in the film, the movie not only set a benchmark at the Box Office but also won critical appreciation.
