OMG: Oh My God! movie review
God as a Bollywood hero is obviously not much of a casting headache if Akshay Kumar is on board as actor-co producer in your film. The dapper star has the look, the grin, the screen presence and fan power. Put him on a superbike or give him a bansuri to play, Akshay is just the right fit as Krishna Vasudev Yadav from Mathura.

OMG: Oh My God! however sees the screen god make space for an actor who has basically made his mark over the decades playing out more mere mortal avatars. If Paresh Rawal’s credibility as an actor has never been doubted, OMG – a film he incidentally co-produces with Akshay – sees him take centrestage as star of the show.

That bit is interesting. As a comedian, Paresh has often hijacked the limelight from bigger names in multistarrers. Yet, the only starring roles he has had till date have come in serious films – Sardar and Tamanna. OMG is special in that sense. This is his first lead role in a comedy setup.
