Om Shanti Om (2007) continues to be a top pick for must-see Bollywood films for a number of reasons. The story, the stars, the songs, the sets - all these contribute to a truly remarkable film set across two different time periods.
One of the most dramatic scenes is "Jag Soona Soona Lage", which shows Om Prakash Makhija (Shah Rukh Khan) after he overhears a conversation which shatters his world.
What makes this item number extraordinary is not only the outcry at the beginning of the song but how the initial shock and emotional turmoil of the character are visually displayed as he numbly walks through the streets. The torrential storm taking shape on a Bollywood set is an outward manifestation of Om's emotional state.
As the scene continues, his personal turmoil and deep sadness remain unabated despite the compassion offered by his family.
