Oh My God!! It’s not Fair

December 25, 2008

Over the last few days I watched two recent movies – Oh My God!! and Sorry Bhai! Both were excellent movies thoroughly enjoyable and both even have an exclamation mark in their titles!!! J

Okay, so this isn’t a movie review post. For one I am not sure how to write one (I will I am sure sometime in the future, but not right now), and as reviews go, I’ll be like far far too late for a review.

omg1First Oh My God!! (OMG) Great movie. I really liked the portrayal of Rajinder Babu and loved it when he stumps God with his simple questions. So basically the movie tries to show how our happiness is in our hands (and not in God’s). But here’s the problem with the movie. It chooses the character of Rajinder Babu to try and propagate this message. Rajinder is shown as a good man, a little pakkau-types but a good man nevertheless. He is loving towards his wife and is ambitious. He is also shown as an honest man believing in hard work wanting to make it big without deceit or without help that he cannot justify. He or his wife is not particularly shown as being unhappy, except that his wife wishes to have a baby after five years of marriage. So here comes God and screws his mind by giving him a huge amount of money without any decent explanation of where it came from. And God helps him get away from the police by making the police see the money as brochures and making Rajinder see it as money. Rajinder practically goes mad as he is unable to explain what’s happening to him. Then finally after three months all is shown as being okay with a ‘Godly’ message that our happiness is in our hands and how we should make the best of the situation blah blah blah.

Great message but wrong protagonist to transmit it. There was no inkling that Rajinder was unhappy. Sure he was trying hard to run his own business (scheme). Perhaps his ‘scheme’ didn’t have the best business case but he was honestly trying and he wasn’t unhappy. So why chose this character to propagate this message? Oh my God!! I fail to understand why!
