Om Shanti Om - 2007 Bollywood Film
I have recently been given the role of introducing drama into a school that has a large population of Muslim and Sikh students. Engaging the students and making them see the importance of drama has been a real challenge. I developed this scheme of work after a conversation with a group of very able Muslim boys and girls, who were underachieving in my subject. It has many elements to keep Year 9 students from all cultural backgrounds interested.
- To study the key themes and synopsis of Om Shanti Om
- To have an understanding of and an experience of Bollywood film, responding to objects, tableaux, improvisation, thought tunnels, news story theatre and improvisation
- To discuss reincarnation, ambition and personal identity
