OMG Oh My God! (2012)

OMG Oh My God Movie PosterWhat do you believe in? 

Oh My God had been in my “to-watch list” for sometime but the poster of it didn’t appeal to me much. I thought that it most probably was another cheesy comedy movie but hey it was only 2 hours long. (Could be even considered as a shorter movie in Bollywood terms) So I decided spending (or wasting?) my 2 hours watching it last Sunday. Well, I quickly realized that I was wrong… Not about watching it but thinking it was cheesy…

It is the story of a shop owner in Chor Bazaar, Mumbai who sues God for destroying his shop with an earthquake. Kanji Lalji Mehta is not a believer to start with but also he takes advantage of the “religious” people who believe in and practice all the rituals of the religion. (This movie takes place in India, that’s why we  mostly see the rituals of Hinduism.)

After he loses his shop because of the earthquake Kanji goes to insurance company but they don’t want to pay out because earthquake is “act of God” and it isn’t covered in the insurance. After that point everything starts going downward and Kanji only finds the solution in suing God since the problems are caused by act of God. As soon as he understands that he can not directly sue God because he doesn’t know the address to send the legal notice, he chooses temples as the opponent for his case.

I should admit that the presentation of religious rituals and the gurus etc. were a bit caricaturised to make sure that people get the point. This also makes us feel more close to Kanji emotionally because we think that he might not be the perfect man but he has a point.

Oh My God might look to you like a light-hearted movie  at first glance however it gives some serious messages and make you re-think about your beliefs and the way you practice them. According to me Oh My God is definitely a must-see from 2012.
