So I saw “Oh My God!” as usual, a few months late. Whenever I think of this movie, I am reminded of another well-made entertainer with the same name (and without the exclamation) with Vinay Pathak in the lead role. Although I do not understand the fun in having the same name for movies that came in a rather short span (and also, not having a more desi sounding name), I won’t get in to that now.
Some people say that this is based on a Gujarathi play (Kanji Virudh Kanji) which is based on another Hindi play. Some people say its a free-make of “The Man who sued God“. Whatever it is, its a good watch and very entertaining too.
Dialogues are very well written. If I watch the movie again at any time, dialogues are a major reason. Paresh Rawal was as usual brilliant but actors like Govind Namdeo were a bit over the top as time passed… but who really amazed me was … Mithun Chakraborthy! He was brilliant as this evil God man with rather weird mannerisms. This is really why I write this post. To say that I am amazed by Mithun’s expressions! 🙂
End to story!
