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
'Shahrukh Khan' was also expected to play a supporting role in the film but later opted out of the project. See more »
During the court scene where he's almost strangled by the enraged priest, Kanji's beard stubble magically disappears and reappears in various parts of the same scene. Even when it is seen, its length varies constantly. See more »
Oh My God is based on successful gujarati play Kanji Viruddh Kanji. Oh My God is a story of Kanjibhai who does not believe in god. One day Kanjibhai's shop gets destroyed in earthquake. Then Kanjibhai complains about God in court.
Paresh Rawal is absolutely splendid as a Kanjibhai and his arguments about reality of religion will make you think for a while. Akshay also plays the role of lord Krishna superbly. Surprise package of the film is Mithun Chakraborty. His comic timing is bang on.
First half of the film is filled with some good comedy sequences and second half will make you amazed with some heart touching and heart shaking scenes. Main USP of the film is its unique concept. The film ends with a noble message. Story is perfectly directed by Umesh Shukla and he deserve a big cheer.
Oh My God is a must watch film for everyone because intelligent Kanjibhai and modern lord Krishna cant be missed.
