OMG 2 Movie Review: Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi have a talk with society

By Some Coincidence, In 2012’s Epic Gangs of Wasseypur, Bitter Enemies – Manoj Bajpayee and Pankaj Tripathi – Both Acted in this Year’s Courtroom Drama which Appeals for Reformation through Hindu Religion. Just One Guy is Enough, in a Solid and Self-assured Film, Bajpayee has Presented a Mythical Story to Put a Monstrous Deity in Shackles. In OMG 2, Tripathi’s Strategy is Quite Similar. However, He Also Brings a Humorous Gentleness that is the Actor’s Identity. The Character Conveys Everything with a Calm Smile and Soothing Voice. In Court, Sometimes He Amplifies His Desi Accent, Resulting in Laughter.

OMG 2 Review

OMG 2 Follows OMG – Oh My God!, a 2012 Film that Satirized Organized Religion and Featured Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, and Mithun Chakraborty. Rawal and Chakraborty – Both Former MPs – are Absent from the Next Installment; Only Kumar Remains, and Also Brave Govind Namdev. The New Film’s Focus is Not Religion but Sex Education in Schools, Which Tells Why the Producers Asked for a UA Certificate. The Censor Board Ordered Several Changes with Prudence and Gave it an ‘A’ (Adult) Rating. Allegedly, Kumar’s Character was Altered from Being a Repaired Version of Lord Shiva to a ‘Messenger’ of God (Already a Separate French Franchise, Distinguishing a Criminal).

OMG 2 Movie Details

OMG 2 (Hindi)

Director: Amit Rai

Ensemble: Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, Yami Gautam Dhar, Govind Namdev, and the presence of Arun Govil

Run-time: 156 minutes

Story: A Divine Messenger, Portrayed by Akshay Kumar, Assists a Troubled Father in Winning a Defamation Case Against His Son’s School.

The Protagonist of OMG 2, Kanti Sharan Mudgal (Pankaj Tripathi), is a Devout Shopkeeper at a Hindu Shiva Temple in Ujjain. We Meet Him amidst Orange-Colored Flowers; from Rangolis and Tents to Tilaks and Marigolds Adorning the Temple Premises. Kanti Lives in a Temple-Adjacent Abode with His Wife and Two Children. It’s a Simple, Peaceful Existence, Until His Son, Vivek, is Expelled from School. Kanti Discovers that After Being Convinced by Some Miscreants that He’s Equipped with a Tiny Phallus, He Prefers Masturbation More; Later, the Children Tease Him and Upload a Video Online.

A Doctor (Brijendra Kala) Advises Kanti that Boys who Seek Masturbation Experience a Weakened Sense of Crime. We See this in Real Time, as Vivek Attempts to End His Life and a Ruthless Stranger Saves Him with a Sweet Smile. Of Course, It’s Kumar, a Messenger of Shiva, who Descended for Divine Help. Urged by Him, Kanti – Who Admits He’s Not an Ideal Father – Files a Case Against His Son’s School and All Those Con Artists and Miracle Workers who Misled His Child. He Also Files a Case Against Himself, Becoming Convinced that He’s Equally Guilty. A Judge (Pawan Malhotra) and a Witty Defense Lawyer (Yami Gautam Dhar) Watch Astonished.

In Court, Kanti’s Arguments Begin Simply and Sincerely but Often Lead to a Larger Point. Citing Ancient Texts, He Sheds Light on the Centrality of Sex and Sexual Well-being in Indian Society. The Film Commendably Utilizes Hinduism’s Liberal Tradition. It Seems Kumar has an Affection for Shiva’s Role; Wherever He Goes, a White Bull Follows Him. Every 10 Minutes or So, We’re Given a Shot of a Trident, a Shiva Lingam, or a Frame with the Deity. Kanti Transforms the Courtroom into a Symbolic Temple (Malhotra’s Judge Attempts to Protest, Gets Flustered, and Surrenders). Yami Gautam’s Character is Named Kamini; The Sanskrit Word ‘Kam’, Meaning Lust and Pleasure, is Repeated Several Times.

However, the Film is Careful. Kanti Alludes to an Open and Progressive Past – “When the World was Taking Small Steps, Our Ancient Hindu Religion was Advancing,” He Proudly States – Yet, There’s No Mention of Homosexuality in Ancient Indian Texts (Even Nearby). His Speech “Sex Education is Important” Disturbs Orthodox Groups from All Religions; We See TV Screens Simultaneously Criticizing Hindus, Muslims, and Christians. OMG 2 is Better than Ram Setu – It Balances Clarity and Allurement – but Ultimately, Like Macaulay-Cosna, It Relies on Speculating to Explain the Flaws of Indian Society.

The Film Could Have Been Shot and Edited Better (CGI Appears Worn). Kanti’s Easy Character is Enjoyable; Geeta Agarwal Sharma Adds Humor to it.
