Where did you watch this movie?

Fresh and incisive, this contemporary drama provides a humorous and insightful look into closely held beliefs about faith, God, religion and justice. This thought-provoking tale primarily revolves around the experiences of Kanji Lalji Mehta (Paresh Rawal), a middle-class atheist Hindu. Ironically, he happens to own a shop of Hindu idols and antiques in Chor Bazaar, Mumbai. Inexplicably, when a low-intensity earthquake hits the city and Kanji's shop is the only shop that is destroyed. When he seeks compensation from the insurance company for his losses, he learns that the disaster claim does not cover damage is caused by natural calamities classified under "Act of God". In an act of defiance, Kanji files a lawsuit against God to compensate him for the losses, finding an extraordinary lawyer to fight his case. This lawsuit sparks a complex sequence of events, that is much bigger than his individual concerns. How will the lawsuit turn out? Will Kanji find a satisfactory solution to this problem?

At the last scene where Paresh Rawal meets Akshay Kumar for the last time, Akshay Kumar disappears as soon as Paresh Rawal looks back. But at that scene, there is a change in back-ground before and after his disappearance.

During the court scene where he's almost strangled by the enraged priest, Kanji's beard stubble magically disappears and reappears in various parts of the same scene. And even when it is seen, its length varies constantly.
OMG Oh My God! was banned in the United Arab Emirates.

This movie created a lot of controversy over the depictions of prominent Hindu gods and Indian spiritual traditions. Jalandhar State Mahila Congress Vice President Nimisha Mehta lodged a complaint against the lead actors, Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar, and the producers of the film, for hurting religious sentiments of Hindus. The notice asked them to delete objectionable scenes and dialogues. Akshay Kumar was given police protection, after this incident.

Many notable stars of Hindi film industry played cameos in this movie, Prabhu Deva, and Sonakshi Sinha appeared in a special appearance in the song "Go Govinda", whereas Salman Khan as the narrator in a teaser trailer, and Dhushenraj as a taxi driver.

The story of this movie has similarities to an Australian film 'The Man Who Sued God'. Yet the screenplay is based on a Gujarati stage-play entitled Kanji Virudh Kanji in original.
