What would you like to watch this Diwali? 

Om Shanti Om

Farah Khan‘s Om Shanti Om,

OR

 Saawariya

Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Saawariya?

I thought it would be interesting to see which movie scores in terms of the different areas of film-making… What works in favour or against them…

Director: Saawariya

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has much more sensibility as a director than Farah Khan. Frankly, I hated the much hyped Main Hoon Na, directed by Farah. While, I have loved all of Sanjay’s movies, right from Khamoshi to Black. The odds are that the director will not disappoint this time as well…

Promotion: OSO

With SRK donning the over-hyped six-pack abs, and Farah going all over the industry to promote OSO, it has a much better promotional strategy. Hate it or love it, you simply cant ignore it. Saawariya is not too far behind, but cant match the scale of OSO promotions

Music: Saawariya

Anybody who has listened to the tracks of both the albums, will agree that Saawariya wins hands down! OSO’s songs are painfully average, with the only respite being Ajab si, which is good to hear. While, in Saawariya, not one, not two, but the entire album has the music to win you over, completely!

OSO-Saawariya

Even though, Saawariya is a less star-studded affair, it seems a lot more promising!

My vote goes out to Saawariya.  

So, whats your choice???
