Oh My God - Notepad

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

God proposes, man disposes. Oh, My God!! (OMG) is a man's surreal success at creating discontent for himself. If only, OMG didn’t end so suddenly. Yet another fabulous performance by Vinay Pathak.

Plot Summary

Rajendra Dubey (Vinay Pathak) wants to get rich using a multi-level marketing (MLM) scheme. He, like all MLM salespeople is not very popular. But, God takes a liking to him and gives him a whole lot of money. Is he happy, now?

What Worked

  • Rajendra throwing away the brochures by the end of the movie, those which were the aim of his life at the beginning.
  • The mouse trap analogy in the song during the end credits.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • How come there's no one in the temple whenever Rajendra prays there.
  • The item number during the end credits.

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • Continuity was off in the shaving cream patches on Divya Dutta's face.
  • Again continuity was off with Divya Dutta's scarf (dupatta). In the scene where Divya Dutta is talking to Vinay Pathak when he just enters his home.
