OMG! Oh My God box office: The film rakes in Rs 16.5 crores weekend bounty

The myth buster starring Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal started slow at the box office, but recovered over the weekend

It seems God is finally being kind to the Akshay Kumar-Paresh Rawal-produced film OMG! Oh My God. Although the movie was praised by critics for its strong story and the gutsy way it was told, it started very slow at the box office.

The opening day’s collections for OMG! stood at Rs 4 crore, which was lower than expected for a film starring the hit comedy duo of Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. However, the collections did pick up with word-of-mouth publicity over the weekend, and despite competition from the televised India-Pakistan match on Sunday, the film managed to touch a total of Rs 16.5 crores – a decent opening total.

Places like Gujarat saw the highest occupancy for the film, considering it was the remake of a Gujarati play and also because Paresh Rawal is quite popular in the state. Mumbai saw collections totalling Rs 1.5 crore, while Delhi and UP saw below par collections of Rs 80 lakh. Now it seems it is more word-of-mouth publicity and the upcoming Gandhi Jayanti holiday that could help OMG! cross the Rs 20 crore mark.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    It’s brilliant story concept, now i watch movie 10 times. I am not film critic, so i don’t command acting, direction etc. But i respect writer ‘Umesh Shukla’ for his Character ‘Kanji Lalji Mehta’. Kanji Lalji Mehta’s dialauge is 100 percent true. And i think all SADHU is not genuine, some are genuine. Genuine person is not want any transaction for god, he only distribute ‘SHANTI’

    Absolutely brilliant movie, it’s about time India wakes up and realizes a movie is about a strong story, brilliant performances and awesome scripts rather than star power, pretty locales and fluff marketing. OMG is a thought provoking Must WATCh!!
