Lo! Behold! Here comes another one on God. Interestingly though, OMG: Oh My God attends to the issue of atheism. How it does this is quite another matter. The good news is that it seems that master actor Paresh Rawal is out to enact one of the most and best comic roles he’s ever done as Kanjibhai, the profound sceptic and disbeliever. And that in itself means that one should watch, watch and watch this film. Moreover, there is also the tried and tested jesting trio of Salman, Akshay and Mithun as the able complement. Overall, it looks like Umesh Shukla’s OMG: Oh My God would wrangle around fictionally and hobble humourously on the philosophical issue of ‘God or Godlessness’ that has continued to invite the attention of the world’s intelligentsia for about two centuries at least. And that is creditable indeed, especially when done in cinema in the religiously sensitive and conservative atmosphere of India and Mumbai. The film promises both to be a laugh riot and, as Hercule Poirot would say, to stimulate those little grey cells ever so slightly, Mon’Ami. One hopes that Himesh Reshamiya’s music helps OMG stay in the hunt and in league with its intentions right till the end. Amen!
