What are you talking about…
Kanti Sharan Mudgal (Pankaj Tripathi), a staunch devotee of Lord Shiva, is scandalized to discover that his teenage son has been so disturbed by his “supposed” lack of virility that he has ended up in hospital. Things take a turn for the worse for his family when a video of his son working diligently on his sexual health from the school bathroom goes viral. The boy falls into depression and no one can help him except the Almighty. Mudgal decides to confront a system that considers his son a sinful, immoral and perverted boy.

Pankaj Tripathi is in stellar form. From mastering the language of Mahakal ki Bhoomi to delivering the subtle comedy punches, he is terrific. The actor shows all his acting skills as he plays a pious father who shakes off his shame to fight for his son. Yami Gautam acts like a business savvy lawyer. Pawan Raj Malhotra will make you applaud his performance as Judge Purushottam Nagar. The casting director deserves a huge round of applause for the cast. Amit Rai, who is the director, is also one of the writers of the film. He is in complete control of his material and actors. The comedy lines are clever and the actors are a joy to watch. Both songs Oonchi Oonchi Waadi and Har Har Mahadev are great to watch on screen. Akshay Kumar creates an impressive Lord Shiva. He brings the cool quotient, carefree attitude and strength that we associate with Mahadev. The concept of the film is western but the attitude and language make it relatable to every small town and village in India. Akshay Kumar has a limited presence in the film but shines and how. OMG 2 is a modern homage to how ancient Hinduism understood sex as one of the pillars in the passage of life.
What is not…
The climax of the film is quite predictable. Given the film’s unique treatment, it feels like a shock absorber. But this is a minor remark. Additionally, the creators could explore the topic of illegally recording people’s private moments, a problem that plagues people around the world.
Check out what Akshay Kumar had to say about OMG 2 here:
Amit Rai has sealed his place as an intelligent and masterful storyteller with OMG 2. This movie is a treat for all fans of Pankaj Tripathi who is awesome. Akshay Kumar is back with a film that uses his charisma in the right way. Watch this movie with your teenage children as it carries the positive message that godliness, pleasure, love and sexual exploration can coexist in a healthy and beautiful way.
