OMG 2 review
The Hindustan Times review of the film reads, "OMG 2 is a sincere attempt at reducing the gap between Indian parents and children when it comes to having a comfortable discussion around physical intimacy. The progressive outlook the film tries to show through its characters reaches us well, and with some thought-provoking lines, it leaves a lasting impact. Also, I liked that Rai hasn't introduced too many subplots, and he remains focused on highlighting the importance of sex education. Other than its script, OMG 2 belongs to Pankaj Tripathi, and he carries the film effortlessly on his shoulders."
Pankaj about OMG 2
Recently, Pankaj told news agency PTI, "The film is entertaining and towards the end it gives you a social message, it is an important message. It revolves around the issues of teenagers and towards the end it talks about sex education. We know the society will not become progressive or change because of cinema. But at the same time, the film keeps values and belief systems intact in a logical way."
He had also added, "I'm from North Bihar and Yami is from Himachal Pradesh. We come from a strong, cultural, social and spiritual background. Because of our backdrop, whether it is a social drama or thriller film, we are mindful about what impact it (film) will have on the audience. As actors, we are always aware, as we have seen both urban and rural life closely."
