Have you watched? Akshay Kumar stars in OMG Oh My God

The movie is a must watch, as it is a film that “not only entertains and inspires but also enlightens: TOI

September 28, 2012

Bollywood director Umesh Shukla’s latest film OMG Oh My God released worldwide on Friday. With a cast boasting the loveable Akshay Kumar and the eternally hilarious Paresh Rawal, the movie has made it to our must-watch list this weekend. It even has an item song featuring the voluptuous Sonakshi Sinha and choreographer Prabhu Deva to draw in the crowds. 

According to a movie review published in the Times of India (TOI), OMG Oh My God is a must watch, as it is a film that “not only entertains and inspires but also enlightens.” The story revolves around the character Kanjibhai (Paresh Rawal), who plays an atheist that makes a living out of selling idols. When his shop is destroyed after an earthquake, he cannot file a successful insurance claim, since the insurance company says an act of God is not covered in their policy. Reviewers say it is gutsy for a matinee idol like Akshay Kumar (also the film’s producer) to make a statement against idol worship. Rawal has also been given rave reviews for his role.


The film has been banned in the UAE! Trade analyst Amod Mehra told TOI that “not a single Hindi film which depicts caste or religion in any way has ever released in UAE.” The decision has been quite a blow to the film-makers, who have lost out on a whopping INR4 crore.

Almighty God is AllahSWT.he alone is God.shirk is unforgivable sin in islam. it means worshipping imaginary gods or godesses instead of the true God who created us.

how can you think a film which promotes shirk to be released in an islamic country?

krishna was a man if he existed.
