The much-awaited film will now be released in theatres tomorrow (on August 11). If you are confused about whether to watch the film or not, then, let us give you the top five reasons to watch the Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi starrer.
Most awaited sequel
Even though the se quels that take time to be made, generally lose the steam that was generated by the original film, this is just not the case in ‘OMG 2’. For the unversed, the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘OMG: Oh My God’, which happens to be the original film, was released in the year 2012. And with the help of extremely strong word of mouth publicity, the film went onto become one of the sleeper hits of that season. But, the resonance of the impact of the film can be felt till date.
Unlike the original film ‘OMG: Oh My God’, the storyline of ‘OMG2’ is definitely bold. Also, its not just bold, but also, it challenges the societal norms and taboos. We know that, many of you must have made plans to watch the film. Even though we will not ‘leak’ the film’s crux plot, we can give you a bit of a spoiler alert that, the film’s storyline deals with the topic of sex education, which has been shot not just aesthetically, but also meticulously. The very fact that the Censor Board had ordered for as many as 17 cuts, has only increased the curiosity amongst the cinegoers to watch the film.
Pankaj Tripathi stepping into Paresh Rawal’s shoes
When the makers of ‘OMG: Oh My God’ announced that they are making a sequel to the ‘OMG: Oh My God’, many felt that the film will surely see the camaraderie between Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. But, when the makers said that, the film will not have Paresh Rawal, it had upset many. And when it was announced that the void left by Paresh Rawal would be filled by yet another equally stellar performer Pankaj Tripathi, everyone was super excited to see what he brings to the table.
Akshay Kumar’s ‘divine’ performance
Just like the original ‘OMG: Oh My God’ where Akshay Kumar was the ‘driver’ of the film, ‘OMG2’ also sees him in the ‘driver’s seat as he ferries along Pankaj Tripathi’s character in the film. Even though Akshay Kumar was initially supposed to be playing the role of Lord Shiva, the Censor Board then, decided to call his character as the ‘Messenger of God’. Pankaj Tripathi’s character in the film addresses Akshay Kumar’s character as ‘Maharaj’ and ‘Prabhu’.
The ‘M’ factor
You guessed it right! We are indeed talking about one of the strongest reasons to see the film- its music! Even though the film was dealing with its own set of controversies of different levels, one thing that everyone liked about the film was its soulful music. Tracks like ‘Oonchi Oonchi Waadi’ and ‘Har Har Mahadev’ have already upped many people’s curiosity to see the film.
As for the film’s release, it is being readied for a theatrical release tomorrow (August 11). The film stars Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam as the leading stars.-
