Storyline

Kanji Lalji Mehta is the owner of a small shop selling religious goods, though he himself is an atheist. He cooks up some or the other explanation and is able to extract a lot of money from his customers. But when an earthquake destroys his only source of income and the insurance company refuses to pay up on the basis of 'act of God', Kanjibhai takes God to the court. Having many people clinging their hopes to him but not having any experience of fighting a case in court, he is not able to prove his point due to lack of evidence that is, not until he is approached by a person who introduces himself as Krishna Vasudeva Yadav. Krishna helps Kanji win his case, his family and helps him find his faith in God. The film shows us how priests can turn religion into a business and that God can be found everywhere and particularly in a house of worship. Written by srijanarora-152-448595

OMG - Oh My God!... Must Watch For All Ages.
30 September 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

OMG Oh My God! Is a wonderful film with an amazing message that everyone should apply in their lives!

Paresh Rawal delivers an outstanding performance, one of his best till date.

Akshay Kumar is top notch you can't think of anyone to do his role in the movie.

Mithun Chakraborty is fabulous as a fraud preacher.

Om Puri, Govind Namdeo, Mahesh Manjrekar and rest have played their roles perfectly.

There are some glitches in the movie like abrupt camera work but it has nothing to do with the story or screenplay.

Grip makes a movie perfect; That's what happens here, you'll get glued to your seats start to end!

I don't know how the play was, but I simply loved the movie.

After Watching OMG! My religion is OMG! Oh My God!

I'll rate it 8/10 Unmissable especially for "so called" religious people wasting time, money, milk and oil at temples.
