OSO


Farah Khan’s OSO has been declared the biggest commercial blockbuster of Indian cineman, where on the other side Sawaariya by Sanjay Leela Bhansali even though was described as a Visual Poetry, created aping the Broadway style bombed at the BO. The film critic panned the latter saying that it had no story line. Haven seen both, I found OSO’s packaging real good while Sawaariya very dull, gloomy and boring. However being a King Khan movie, OSO went laughing away to the coffers while the other bombed. OSO is an outright bollywood dhinchak movie and doesn’t pretend otherwise. a full on entertainer; it never leaves anything to crib. Debutant Deepika was really commendable while Shahrukh was back to being himself as he has done over the years in his entire chocolate boy image, playing the lover boy to the hilt. A spoof on yesteryears sometimes even the overacting seemed over the top. And a lot totally unrealistic though what is commendable is, reincarnations as a topic was well handled even though one can find several loop holes. Music well, there is nothing great to talk about, its good, Vishal and Shekhar has brought forward, ankhon mein teri is one song which seems to have brought back the beauty of lyrical poetry adding melody to the already beautiful song. Shreya Talpade leaves a mark on our minds as Pappu Master, and in a never before role is Arjun Rampal as the admirato, the villain hero was really wonderful. Writing about OSO and not mentioning the 31 star song, deewaangi deewangi is without question. Its almost like a game to spot our favorites in seconds of appearance. all in all a good movie lacking a finishing touch here and there and its best advised to watch it only while your brain is malfunctioning or is totally absent. A complete masala bollywood movie a must watch for time pass.

Perspective from and intellectual level:
OSO was what I call an insult to intelligence and expectations out of an entertaining movie

Saawariya a story told about delirious nature that TRUE love unfolds on humans - a sensitive movie again not for the masses - but a movie with a very intense use of light colors and free spirit - to understand this one needs to be in love or really broken very deeply....

TZP just to add my two bits - thats a good movie, with a good story and very interesting delivery......
