Storyline

Kanji Lalji Mehta, though an atheist, owns a small shop selling religious goods, concocting cock-and-bull stories to extract higher fees from his customers for his wares. When, in openly defying God, an earthquake destroys his (and only his) only source of income, with the insurance company refusing to pay up on the basis of it being an 'act of God', Kanjibhai takes God to the court. With many similarly unfortunate people pinning their hopes to him, Kanji's lack of courtroom experience may leave him unable to prove his point - that is, until approached by a man introducing himself as Krishna Vasudeva Yadav. Krishna helps Kanji win his case, his family and helps him find his faith in God, along the way showing how priests can turn religion into a business and that God can be found everywhere, particularly in a house of worship.

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.
