Om Shanti Om is a 2007 Bollywood film directed and choreographed by Farah Khan. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles as the protagonists while Shreyas Talpade, Arjun Rampal, and Kirron Kher feature in supporting roles. Arjun Rampal is the Big Bad in the movie. More than forty two well-known Bollywood stars appear in the course of the film, including thirty of them (not including the stars of the film) in one song alone.

Protagonist Om Prakash Makhija (Shahrukh Khan) is a junior artist in the 1970s film industry. He and his friend Pappu (Shreyas Talpade) are trying to succeed as leading actors. Om's mother, Bela Makhija (Kirron Kher), herself a junior artist, inspires and encourages her son to become a success. He is in love with the film actress Shanti Priya (Deepika Padukone), whom he eventually befriends after saving her from a fire in set. He tries to confess his feelings to her, but he gets overwhelmed by Shanti true kindness and decides to wait for a better chance.

One day, Om tries to talk to Shanti on the set of a film, but is almost ignored. He follows her into a dressing-room, where he, unseen except by the viewer, overhears her argument with the film's producer Mukesh Mehra (Arjun Rampal) about a recent promise of Mukesh's to marry a businessman's daughter in return for funding of a film. It is here revealed that Shanti is secretly married to Mukesh, and that Shanti is pregnant with Mukesh's child. Mukesh insists that his relationship with Shanti be kept secret, arguing that its revelation will spoil his plans; but Shanti demands that they marry in public. Mukesh relents when she reveals her pregnancy. Om leaves, disappointed, and remains miserable for some days.

This movie has the following tropes:

  • Actor Allusion: Almost all the actors featured in Deewangi Deewangi use signature dance moves from their most popular movies.
  • Adam Westing: Anyone who is not a fictional character.
  • All-Star Cast: The cameos. Dear god, the cameos.
  • Andrew Lloyd Webber: Inspired the second part of the movie.
  • Bad Bad Acting: The audition montage.
  • Big No: Om Prakash's mom shouts a big "Nehi!" when he wants to change his name.
  • Birth-Death Juxtaposition: When Om dies in the hospital, a mother gives birth in the next room. The baby turns out to be Om reincarnated.
  • Creator Cameo: Farah Khan is the woman who fights with Om Prakash at the beginning of the movie. Lampshaded:

 Farah Khan: Hey, who do you think you are, the star of the movie?

Om Prakash: Well, who do you think you are, the director?
