Oh My God (2012)

Today, I watched a movie Oh My God (2012 film) and I liked the movie very much. Every one acted very well in the movie and I liked the role of Kanjibhai Lalji Mehta (Kanji Bhai) played by Paresh Rawal. Paresh Rawal is a great actor. Mithun Chakraborty has played a very different role and he was also good. Akshay Kumar was in the role of modern Krishna and he also performed very well. The story and subject of the story were also impressive.

I like theme based movies. This movie was message to all the people in this world, that how today most of the people make use of the religion and have made it their businesses. The people are very superstitious and easily misguided by godmen (priests, pandits and maulvis). These god-men have made business in name of religion. They themselves are not spiritual and having any knowledge of religion, they don't know the meaning and purpose of the rituals. They just have made use of religion to earn money.

It's true that the people like to give money and other things to the temples, churches and masjids, but not to needy people. They are god fearing people, not god loving people. The God is everywhere. We should have faith in him. Whatever religion we follow, first we are the human beings. And we should respect every person in this world. Every religion teaches us to spread love everywhere.

Hindus advocate the practice of ahimsa (non-violence) and respect for all life because divinity is believed to permeate all beings, including plants and non-human animals. Jainism teaches us "ahimsa parmo dharmah" (Non-violence is main religion) and "Jiyo aur jeene do" (Live and let live). Islam also is a great supporter of peace and non-violence. It is proven in the article Ahimsa. All other religions also follow the same. Our great leaders like Mahatama Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Malcom X and Cesar Chavez were also the supporters of non-violence.

The drama was shown in the movie to question the existence of God and to attack on Godmen's selfishness. And the movie was based on a Gujarati play called Kanji Virudh (vs) Kanji, and with a plot similar to that of the Australian film The Man Who Sued God.
