    Verdict - Worth a watch

    OMG Oh My God!Watch trailerRelease date : September 28, 2012

    Based on a Gujrati play, OMG stars Paresh Rawal as a atheist who is fighting against God. While the play has been hugely successful in Gujrati & Hindi, can the film live up to its expectations?

    Not having seen the play, I can only say that the film is surely worth a watch.

    Antique shop owner Kanjibhai (Paresh Rawal) is enraged after his shop gets destroyed in an earthquake & his insurance company refuses to help him out. The film tracks his fight against religous faces & eventually God himself.

    Right from the onset, it is very clear that this film rests on one man, Paresh Rawal. The beauty of this veteran is the ease with which he anchors a film and the conviction which he plays this character.

    The film does slow down but keeps you engaged through most of it. Certain scenes will have you in splits & the song 'Go Govinda Go' is decent entertainment. The production values are poor but honestly, it doesnt matter.

    Akshay Kumar is not bad but anyone could have played that role. Loads of other actors fill this film of which Mithun C leaves a mark.

    To sum it up, OMG is an engaging, well-written fare that can be allowed its dull moments & tacky production values as it sends out a message to a nation obsessed with religion. Quite a fitting time to release the film. Great watch.

    P.S - Big ups to the censor board for passing this film without cuts.
