Movie Title

Om Shanthi Om


D Surya Prabhakar

Star Cast

Srikanth, Neelam Upadhyaya

It takes special kind of patience  to sit  through a movie like Suriya Prabhakar’s Om Shanthi Om.  It leaves you feeling battered and bruised. The plot resembles Suriya’s Masss but sadly the execution is amateurish and finally the film turns out to be an ordeal. 

Vasu (Srikanth) is a do-gooder, who always helps the needy and at one point of time, he comes across five strangers, who keep following him for some reason. Later, he comes to know that they are ghosts and they have unfulfilled wishes. After hearing their back-story, Vasu agrees to help them, which brings him a lot of problems including his girlfriend Shanthi(Neelam Upadhyaya) thinks that he is mentally retarded.  Later, all these ghosts reunite the couple in climax.

As you read the plot, the film would have been a new idea only if it had released before Masss but now everything seems to be outdated. Forget the basic idea; the screenplay is a pain  and the director tests our patience with wrong song placements, blant comedy and a lifeless romance.

It’s really sad to see Srikanth in such a messy movie that even his over enthusiastic performance could not save the film. The only solace in the whole movie is the CG shots in the bus accident sequence, which comes just before the climax but the damage was already done.

Overall, Om Shanthi Om is a damp squib. Watch it at your own risk!

Verdict: Avoid
