Om Prakash Makhija (Shahrukh Khan) is a junior artist aspiring to become a superstar one day and live life of luxury and comfort. He is a die-hard fan and a secret lover of popular actress Shanti Priya (Deepika Padukone). His mother and Papu (Shreyas Talpade) are the only true believers of his talent. A fire accident on one of the shooting sets introduces Shanti to Om. As Om finds happiness and satisfaction in coming to Shanti's rescue, he is shattered upon discovering that Shanti is secretly married to film producer Mukesh Mehra (Arjun Rampal), a heartless opportunist, who kills her after she admits her pregnancy to him. As a witness to this crime, Om gets killed in a fight with Mehra's men. Om Prakash is reborn now as Om Kapoor, a star-kid. When flashes of his past-life are revealed to him in visions, Om Kapoor focuses all his energies on taking revenge on Mehra for killing his love, Shanti. He plans a conspiracy with Shanti's clone Sandy, his mother and friend, Papu to make Mehra (who is now a big producer in Hollywood) confess about his deadly crime. Will the purpose of Om's rebirth be fulfilled? Will Mukesh Mehra confess his crime? What is the future of Om and Sandy?

Crew/Equipment Visible
In the scene where Om and his mother are looking at the moon through the window, the camera starts rising. In the background, you can see a crew member standing behind Khan and Kher, stepping back to avoid getting into the field.

Continuity
During the dance number "Deewangi Deewangi", after Om Kapoor (Shah Rukh Kahn) removes his jacket, it re-appears on him no less than five times.

Continuity
When Mukesh Mehra (Arjun Rampal) is hit by the falling Chandelier, he falls in front of the crowd. Later on, when the crowd has disappeared, the chandelier is miraculously fixed by the time Mukesh Mehra regains consciousness.

Continuity
Near the end of the movie, when the Chandelier falls on Mukesh (Arjun Rampal), you see the entire Chandelier is broken, yet in the next scene you see the Chandelier still active up to Om's (Shahrukh Khan's) height, with him looking through it to see the ghost of Shantipriya.

Continuity
After Mukhesh Mehra locks up Shanthi in the burning studio of 'Om Shanthi Om' while kissing her good bye, his hands change. From inside it's the right hand, but from outside shot its the left hand.
Trivia:
The film features cameo appearances from a good portion of the Bollywood industry, with most of them appearing as themselves.

In the song "Dastaan-E-Om Shanti Om", Shanti's ghost can be seen on a balcony behind Mike, just after he chased Sandy for the first time. Shanti's ghost is in the same costume she was wearing when she died.

Director Farah Khan wanted to bring Sanjay Dutt, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan together onscreen for the first time ever. However, Aamir Khan refused to make a cameo appearance.

The yesteryear cars used in the film once belonged to Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini.
