MovieNotes: Oh My God

Movie - OMG - Oh My God!
*ing - Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar
Language - Hindi

This was one movie that I had wanted to watch when it released but for some reason wasn't able to. Finally managed to catch it while channel surfing looking for something to watch. And of all channels it was on DD National where I found something worth watching (The Irony!)

Movie Review
Basic Premise - A non-believer suing God

Thoroughly enjoyed - both the acting as well as the message coming out of the story. The concept of God and religion as depicted in the film was what I could personally relate to and more in line with my beliefs. And good acting by Paresh Rawal and others made this fantasy plot quite believable.

The film is also a nice commentary on the business of religion.

Best Line - Paresh Rawal & Akshay Kumar had lots of great punch lines but the line of the movie (IMO) was delivered by Mithun Chakraborty's character - "People here are not God-loving, they are God-fearing"

Rating - 9/10. For being a clean entertainer with a message.

P.S. 2012 was quite a good year for Hindi cinema with lots of repeat-watch movies coming in the year - Vicky Donor, Barfi, English Vinglish, Kahaani, OMG, Gangs of Wasseypur etc. not to mention the likes of Dabangg 2 & Singham

P.P.S - Want to watch the play Kishen vs Kanhaiya on which the movie is based.

P.P.P.S - I hope no one's religious sentiments got hurt on reading this post.
