OMG – Oh My God! was a satirical comedy-drama film that starred Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal in lead roles. The film was a critical and commercial success and received praise for its unique storyline and thought-provoking themes. The sequel, OMG 2, has been in the works for several years and has generated a lot of buzz among fans of the first film.
The film’s cast and crew have been tight-lipped about the storyline and plot details, but it is known that the film will address some contemporary social issues and challenge some established religious beliefs. Pankaj Tripathi has described the film as a “commentary on our society and how we perceive religion.”
The news of OMG 2’s OTT release has been met with mixed reactions from fans. While some are excited to watch the film on the streaming platform, others are disappointed that they won’t be able to experience the film’s grandeur and impact in a theatrical setting.
However, the possibility of a theatrical release is still on the table, and Akshay Kumar’s decision will determine whether the film will be released on OTT or in cinemas. The pandemic has led to a surge in OTT releases, but the theatrical experience is still valued by many, and a film like OMG 2, with its themes and message, could benefit from a wide theatrical release.
Akshay Kumar is known to be a supporter of the theatrical experience and has previously mentioned that he would like to see more films released in cinemas. He also mentioned that he would like to release his upcoming films, including Bell Bottom and Sooryavanshi, in theaters. Therefore, it is possible that he may opt for a theatrical release for OMG 2 as well.
The news of OMG 2’s OTT release has been confirmed, but a theatrical release is still a possibility. The film’s themes and message make it a perfect fit for a wide theatrical release, and fans are eagerly waiting for Akshay Kumar’s decision. Whether the film is released on OTT or in cinemas, it is sure to be a thought-provoking and entertaining experience for viewers.
