OMG 2 Review {4.0/5} & Review Rating

OMG 2 is the story of a father fighting for his son. Kanti Sharan Mugdal (Pankaj Tripathi) resides in Mahakaal Nagri. He runs a shop that sells pooja items in the temple complex. He also resides in the vicinity with his wife Indumati, son Vivek (Aarush Verma) and daughter Damyanti. All is going well in their lives until one day, Vivek is hospitalized for overdose of Viagra. Kanti learns about it and at first hides it from his Indumati and Damyanti. But soon, a video of him masturbating in the school toilet goes viral. The school principal Atal Nath Maheswari (Arun Govil) decides to rusticate Vivek for his 'indecent' act. Kanti is advised to leave town and lie low for a few days along with his family. This is when Lord Shiva sends his messenger (Akshay Kumar) to help Kanti fight for his son. What happens next forms the rest of the film.

Amit Rai's story is splendid and the need of the hour. Amit Rai's screenplay is gripping. He has peppered the film with plenty of entertaining and thought-provoking moments. Also, the way he has merged the importance of sex education and the divine element is seen to be believed. Amit Rai's dialogues are sharp and clap worthy.

Amit Rai's direction is simple. He has kept the narrative uncomplicated and effortlessly talks about taboo topics. The way Kanti learns about his son's predicament is praiseworthy. The flashback idea works well. The film obviously goes on another level when the courtroom drama begins. Several scenes stand out here like Indumati and Damyanti being interrogated by Kamini (Yami Gautam Dhar) and the scene of the sex worker. A lot of issues are raised without getting preachy. The finale is quite impactful.

On the flipside, the director doesn't sum up the film properly. Kanti doesn't address an important point about how no action was taken by the school against the bully who shot Vivek's video. Similarly, the defendants don't raise the point that Vivek almost got arrested for attempting to murder charge. Lastly, a few developments are convenient.

Speaking of performances, Pankaj Tripathi is too good. He entertains with his antics and also impresses with his meaningful monologues. Akshay Kumar sadly doesn't have a lot of screen time. Yet, he leaves a huge mark. He looks dashing and his performance is exemplary. Yami Gautam Dhar is a surprise as one has never seen her play such a part. Aarush Verma puts up a confident act. Arun Govil is dependable. The same goes for Govind Namdev (priest) and Brijendra Kala (Dr Gagan Malviya). Pavan Malhotra (Judge Purushottam Nagar) is the surprise of the film. The actors playing Dr B D Shah, medical shop owner and Pranlal Mutho are also fine.

Songs don't have a shelf life. 'Har Har Mahadev', however, stands out as it’s very well shot. 'Oonchi Oonchi Waadi', 'Ho Tayyar' and 'Akelo Chal Padiyo' are forgettable. Mangesh Dhakde's background score is in sync with the film's theme.

Amalendu Chaudhary's cinematography is appropriate. Nikhil Kovale's production design is realistic. Leepakshi Ellawadi, Jiya Bhagiya and Mallika Chauhan's costumes are straight out of life. Suvir Nath's editing is fine.

On the whole OMG 2 is a bold, powerful, progressive, and sensitively handled film with powerful performances as its USP. At the box office, the 'Adults only' certification and the competition in the form of GADAR 2 is likely to impact its business prospects to a large extent. The movie will require a solid word of mouth to attract footfalls. Recommended for every child and every parent.
