OMG: Oh My God!

Synopsis: Kanji Lalji Mehta, though an atheist, owns a small shop selling religious goods, concocting cock-and-bull stories to extract higher fees from his customers for his wares. When, in openly defying God, an earthquake destroys his (and only his) only source of income, with the insurance company refusing to pay up on the basis of it being an 'act of God', Kanjibhai takes God to the court. With many similarly unfortunate people pinning their hopes to him, Kanji's lack of courtroom experience may leave him unable to prove his point - that is, until approached by a man introducing himself as Krishna Vasudeva Yadav. Krishna helps Kanji win his case, his family and helps him find his faith in God, along the way showing how priests can turn religion into a business and that God can be found everywhere, particularly in a house of worship.

You dwell in my heart.

Whether its dusk or dawn.

Whether in light or darkness.

You're always with me.

lt was my mother's dying wish..

..to take the entire 'Bhajan Mandli'

group along with their family..

..on a trip to Badrinath.

Please do come.

Of course.

Please join us on the trip..

..and pray for my mother's soul.

Why do souls become

restless after they die?

l mean, once you're dead

it's the end of all problems.

Why become restless?

That's not it.

Suppose the deceased

has a unfulfilled wish.

Then his son will fulfil it.

You won't go on the trip.

Get that.

Her mother was in the

hospital for two years.

And he didn't even

come take a look.

He was making dollars in America.

This charade is for the world.

Not for his mother's soul.

No need to look so depressed..

..you won't get an off.

Get that.

Just one idol left!

By the way,

where's the trip headed?

l can't believe

you're coming with us.

The children are so happy.

She thinks l'm going

for beholding the Lord.

Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare.

Hare Rama, Hare Krishna

Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare.

Where is he?

A dozen of pot

bellied Ganesh idols.

What!

And those 250 a peice Krishnas.

Eight of those brawny Hanumans.

What are you saying?

- And five of those 'Sherawali'.

The lady sitting on the tiger.

What's the total?

Three dozen, sir.

- Three dozen, right!

Then, three Sai Babas bonus.

- What?

They are in a big demand.

Send it to the white

Volvo parked there.

- Okay.

Great, wine shop.

Hare Rama, Hare Krishna.

What did you give him?

Give me too.

Funny people, they're distributing

alcohol like holy water.

What's that?

What should l say?

Water of Ganges.

- Yes, yes.

Oh, give me some.

Why is it so bitter?

Because the Ganges is polluted.

Oh!

- Yes.

Hare Rama, Hare Krishna.

Krishna,

Krishna, Hare, Hare.

- Mother.

Hare Rama, Hare Krishna.

Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare.

Apologise. They were fasting.

Hello.

- We were fasting.

And you gave us alcohol.

Alcohol is permitted in fasts.

lt's made from sugarcane.

lt fills you with energy,

and makes you lightheaded.

Rascal. Keep the phone down.

- You'll never learn.

Abusing in the month

of 'Shravan' (pious month).

See. Truth sounds

bitter than liquor.

There's a limit to cracking jokes.

Papa, please.

What you did yesterday,

is a sin in mummy's view.

And mummy's fasting

today to repent for it.

l want to know.

How can she repent

for my sins by fasting?

Sushila, it's like

your phone's on charging..

..and my battery's getting charged.

Like wi-fi?

Chintu, careful.

Papa.

Get down.

Papa, we're practising.

Today's 'Janmastami'.

You've your exams tomorrow.

Who will write that?

Get down!

Why do you always stop

for religious things?

He'll be absolutely fine.

My son's playing Govinda.

My son won't become

Govinda or Chunkey Pandey.

He'll grow up to

become a cricketer.

Get down. Get down.

Put me down.

Mahadev.

- Coming.

Let's go.

- Come soon.

Listen. Remove the

tag of Rs.250 from..

..all the new idols that we bought

Just watch how l sell

them for 10-12 thousand.

And keep one idol

from each on display.

Understand?

- Yes.

Come on.

One and only one

piece in the world.

This idol appeared

from the ground..

..when the temple at

Badrinath was being built.

What are you saying?

A great sage from Dwarka

set out for a journey on foot..

..and that afternoon

the sun was really scorching..

..l gave him a jug

of water to drink.

He was so pleased.

And gave me this idol.

And this idol turned

my luck around.

l bought this, once a rented shop..
