Farah Khan's re-birth saga literally makes an art of retro and paints the seventies pop culture in Andy Warholish strokes.

Hush up and lean closer to the screen, my curious friend.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
Above all the enterprise belongs to Shah Rukh Khan, who tackles comedy, high drama and action with his signature style – spontaneous and intuitively intelligent. Six-pack or no-packs, he’s the entertainer of the year in this valentine to the movies - hatc

Cut the crap, cut the gyan-baazi, cut the will-it-won't-it work naatak.

Sulekha Reviewer, Sulekha
The story built around the theme of reincarnation is about the lives of two men – Om Makhija – a charming junior artiste of the 70s and Om Kapoor – an arrogant present day superstar (both played by Shah Rukh Khan). Om Makhija’s filmi escapades are delight
Lidia Ostepeev, Planet Bollywood
The film has a bollywood setting and incorporates the 70’s genre in Hindi cinema during the first half, the witty impersonations, the digs and jibes made about bollywood and many bigwigs definitely brings in the lighthearted elementSeveral twists and turn
Bollywood Mantra
Overall, Om Shanti Om is definitely one of the best films made in 2007. Whoever is expecting another Main Hoon Na will be surprised positively. A sure-shot hit!
Aryan Khan, Bolly Spice
With an embarrassment of riches the film offers by way of comedy, lively songs (Vishal-Shekhar) and spirited performances (in the first half), we can forgive the many things that are not inspiring, especially Shah Rukh's emotional scenes in the second hal

OM SHANTI OM is truly a near 3 hour circus show in the offering. You get to see dozen odd item sequences one after another that tie the script together for a circus and turn out to be amusing and entertaining by themselves.
