Set to release on September 28th is OMG – Oh My God! starring Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal and directed by Umesh Shukla, who also directed the stage version. It tells the story of Kanji Mehta (Paresh Rawal), who is an atheist who runs an antique shop. For him, God and religion are nothing more than a business proposition. He buys religious idols and sells them off as ‘antiques’ for double, triple and even ten times the original price.
Then one fine day, the tremor of an earthquake shakes the city but causes the destruction of only one shop – Kanji’s. As they say, man proposes, God disposes, or in this case, insurance company disposes as it rejects his claim, citing the earthquake an ‘Act of God’. Frustrated and left with no option, Kanji decides to file a case against God on the premise that if God is responsible for his loss, then it is God’s responsibility to compensate him for his losses. Enter Lord Krishna played by Akshay Kumar. What follows is a journey of epic proportions, self-realisation, legal masterstrokes and borderline insanity.
