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

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 »
One of the most path breaking bollywood films ever!!!!
WOW, what a film, I was pretty much speechless after i exited the theater. The message this film gives is that god is in every human being, then why do we go looking for him in mandhirs, churches, mosaics, gurdwaras, etc Why has god and religion become a business, why do we spends millions and billions of dollars at religious places as people when we can take that same money and help the poor, won't god be more happy then. This and many more messages are conveyed in this movie through characters, like Kanji Bhai, Krishna, etc Another really plus point about the film is that it is told in a light hearted way, in a comedy, the film isn't very preachy and still conveys its beautiful and real message. For me when it comes to performances Paresh Rawal has just done such an amazing job, he deserves all the applauds, accolades, awards, in the world for his portrayal as Kanji bhai. Akshay Kumar as always is very good in a small but important role, his and Paresh's chemistry is just too good. Other notable performances Mithun, was really good as the sadhu, and so was Govind Namdev. Music was good and suited the film very well. All tech aspects were just perfect. Umesh Shukla the director is the heart of the film and he has done an incredible job, he deserves, a national award for his efforts, he was just that good. A special mention for the amazing dialogues very smart and well written,
So all in all this is must watch film for not just the people in India, but for everyone in the world. A masterpiece film, this should be India's official entry to the Oscars. its that good and beyond one of the best movies ever made in bollywood. 10 out 10 rating
