Protagonist Om Prakash Makhija (Shah Rukh 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.

Unfortunately. Mukesh doesn't really want to keep married with Shanti, and tricks her into in a soundstage with the excuse of talking about their next movie, where then he traps her and then set the place in fire. Om, after seeing this, tries in vain to rescue her, and he ends badly burn and run over by actor Rajesh Kapoor, who was carrying his soon-to-have-birth wife to the hospital. Kapoor carries them both to the hospital, but as his wife gives birth, Om dies from all his injuries.

The plot then moves 30 years and we meet Om Kapur (Shah Rukh Khan), the son of Rajesh Kapoor and the reincarnation of Om Prakash. Om Kapur, nicknamed OK, is a very popular and talented main actor, but also a very bratty one, accustomed to always get his way. He also has strange experiences, like having pyrophobia despite never having bad experiences with fire. A chance encounter with Makesh (now a successful international movie producer) and the discovery of the remains of the studios where Shanty died awakens in Om Kapoor the memories of his former life. Furious for the fact that neither his past life nor Shanti's deaths received justice, OK decides to make Mukesh confess his crimes. His plan is simple: revive the production of the movie Shanti was going to star had Muukesh not killed her, then having someone masquerading as her roaming on the studio to spook Mukesh shitless until the man breaks and confess on tape. OK even has the very good luck of finding a dead-on Shanti lookalike in the person of one of his fangirls; but even with that help, making Mukesh nervous enough to confess is easier said than done...

Added DiffLines:

* RasputinianDeath: Om is beaten down mercilessly by security guards, repeatedly. He still manages to rise up, and bursts into a burning house to save Shanti. An explosion knocks him not only away from her, but out of the building entirely and into a nearby street. And he still manages to rise up to his feet again, only to finally be mortally wounded when Rajesh Kapoor's car hits him accidentally.
