Bollywood Hungama - Taran Adarsh's Rating: 3.5
A movie tackling a sensitive and an untouched subject matter, it will find its share of advocates and adversaries, but the social message the movie conveys comes across loud and clear and that's one of the prime reasons why OMG - OH MY GOD! becomes a deserving watch.
Rediff - Sukanya Verma's Rating: 3.5
Oh My God is a brave and absorbing blend of satire, fable and fantasy that brings our attention to the misuse and commercialisation of religion.
Glamsham - Martin D'Souza's Rating: 3.5
OH MY GOD! comes as a bold move. A move that is likely to be viewed fanatically by those immersed in religious rituals forgetting the simple truth of living. But for those with wisdom, this movie is like, "Oh My God. Really!"
Oneindia - Nabanita's Rating: 3
Watch it out if you believe in genuine and clean concept rather than any mindless entertainment. It makes you believe that temple is not the Almighty's home, he exists everywhere, in everyone.
Yahoo - Rummana Ahmed's Rating: 3
Umesh Shukla should be applauded for making a film that is noble at heart and makes quite a few valid points that are sure to resonate with not only the youth but a lot of us who blindly follow religious practices without logic.
Hindustan Times - Anupama Chopra's Rating: 2.5
OMG Oh My God! is about something that touches all our lives - religion. It is a film about our relationship with God, how instead of being God-loving, we have become God-fearing. How religion has become a business run by godmen (here aptly referred to as 'salesmen') who aren't in fact very spiritual at all. A note to atheists and agnostics - the film is not an endorsement of those views. It insists on the existence of God.
NDV - Saibal Chatterjee's Rating: 2.5
Despite the high fun quotient inherent in the concept and the steady flow of droll one-liners from the principal players, OMG never rises to particularly great heights either as an entertainer or a social message-oriented drama.
Koimoi - Roshni Devi;s Rating: 2.5
Watch OMG Oh My God! for the interesting arguments and repartees.
Midday - Janhavi Samant's Rating: 2
Umesh Shukla's film makes its point but ends up preachy. And frankly, the people who must watch it will be busy lining up barefoot for Bappa's darshan.
Live Mint - Sanjukta Sharma's Review
OMG Oh My God! could have been a taut, edgy take on organized religion. But it stops short, almost scared to really question religion, and turns into a verbose and silly film.
