IMDB- 8.5
RJG Rating- 100

Kanji ,a business man sues God for the destruction of his shop in an earthquake.

Starring- Paresh Rawal,Akshay Kumar
Director- Umesh Shukla

OMG is an adaptation of the Gujarati play Kanji Virudh (vs) Kanji, which is an adaptation of an Australian movie ,The Man Who Sued God.

Paresh Rawal is the star of the show.He plays Kanji to perfection and delivers both comical and emotional scenes brilliantly.Akshay Kumar as God ,is a supporting character to Kanji ,and he too delivers nicely.Mithun & Govind as the religious leaders were hilarious with their antics.The rest of the cast were all amazing in their roles.

The story is well crafted.Its a smooth run from start to finish and raises important points and thoughts that can really make an impact on the audience.Thanks to Paresh's excellent comic timing ,he carries out hard hitting points but still manages to make the audience laugh.Another plus point for the story was how delicately it treated the God character.The story itself mainly centers around Hinduism ,but its thoughts & ideas arent restricted to any one religion,but touches upon all.

Direction by Umesh is excellent.OMG blends a perfect mix of comedy-drama+starpower.It has an even pace and hasnt got a dull moment anywhere.The issues brought forward arent just put out to the the audience ,but are also given solutions and reasonable logic behind the solutions.

Overall ,OMG not only has an interesting concept but boasts of excellent performances and ideas that can really have an effect on our daily lives.
