Right from the announcement of its title, there was some negativity associated with Akshay Kumar‘s Grazing Goat Pictures’ OMG OH MY GOD! The all English title was smirked at by many who considered the anglicized title as inappropriate and unimpressive and unidentifiable.

Even the theme of ‘Kanjibhai versus God’ was frowned upon keeping the Indian religious sentiments in mind with people questioning the fact that in a conservative Indian society, not many are going to accept the theme where the religious ‘aastha’ (faith/belief) of the people are challenged.

However, all that went for a toss with the very first promo (with Salman’s commentary) followed by the theatrical trailer of the Paresh Rawal starrer. The extremely entertaining, and novel manner in which the sensitive topic was handled was quite evident from the dialogue promos. And the hype just got a real kick-start with the entry of superstar Akshay Kumar essaying an interesting cameo, that of Lord Krishna and the superb chemistry that Akki-Paresh share is visible to all.
With a chart-buster in the form of ‘Go Govinda’ already under its belt and some good music by Himesh Reshammiya one can easily predict a winner in Akshay’s OMG! OH MY GOD when the film releases all over on 28th September 2012.
