Review:Oh, My God!
Move over Morgan Freeman and Bachchan Tussi Great Ho (oho, this Mr Bachchan is all over the place). Right, so in his place Saurabh Shukla is here, and he wears a white suit, too, like all movie gods do, writes Khalid Mohamed. See 1| 2india Updated: Dec 07, 2008 01:04 IST
Oh, My God!
Cast:Vinay Pathak, Saurabh Shukla
Move over Morgan Freeman and Bachchan Tussi Great Ho (oho, this Mr Bachchan is all over the place). Right, so in his place Saurabh Shukla is here, and he wears a white suit, too, like all movie gods do. And god is absolutely fed up of a certain Mr Miserable (Pathakji). This man breaks the record for irritating the viewer by showing up in practically every frame. Did he re-edit? See
Mr Miserable has some half-baked scheme of earning lakhs, somehow lands up with a suitcase full of Rs 10 crores (not 11, please note), but can’t get rid of the jolly good lolly. His wife (Divya Dutta, assured) doesn’t know what to do, neither does god (except to chomp hamburgers) and nor do you. Except to look at the multiplex ceiling as if it were a planetarium.
Shabbily shot and replete with repetitive situations (like Mr Miserable’s backdoor visits to the temple), this oddity prompts you to ask god to just tell Mr Vinay Pathak that he was excellent in Bheja Fry but that doesn’t entitle him to Bheja Roast, Bheja Boil and Bheja Grill us. Even Robert De Niro and Al Pacino don’t believe in hogging the show. They’re subtle, cool, secure. But Pathakji. Oh, my God really.
