Rajeev Masand, IBN 
Paresh Rawal, as usual, rises above the material. He is the force in this film.
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times 
OMG, even at its worst, does not ever deteriorate into WTF, thanks to the wondrous presence of Paresh Rawal. It's certainly not a waste of time
There is a lot of charm in this simple, sweet film.

Nice morals neat message tedious film...Oh my God is that really Vinay Pathak and Sourabh Shrivasta! Hard to believe since the two actors have almost always delighted you with their slice-of-life portrayals.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
The same can be said of the movie.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
I’ll tell you right away that this film is possibly the worst this critic has seen in a long time.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
Formulaic but funny and insightful

OMG Oh My God' makes very pertinent points about commercialization of religion, religious symbolism and the farce that "devout" godmen manage to pull off. The intention was good but was that enough to make a good film?

It actually transpired in 2008 in Nebraska in the United States. A Senator filed a lawsuit...
Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
OH MY GOD!! is a feel-good fare with a strong second hour. At the box-office it should grow with a strong word of mouth.

OMG Oh My God is an honest film with a strong message which should be encouraged and seen especially for the brilliance of its script and the delightful acting of Paresh Rawal!
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
The movie has been inspired by a Gujarati play called as 'Kanji Virudh Kanji' which was also remade in Hindi version titled as 'Kishen Vs Kanhaiya' that starred Paresh Rawal himself in lead role. However these plays were also inspired by real incident as
Aakash Barvalia, Movie Zadda
Kanji Lalji Mehta is a atheist. But not just any old atheist: he’s the sort of unbeliever who has no qualms about milking overly gullible believers, especially if they happen to be cash cows.
Trisha Gupta, First Post
The film tries to give a message but the story is so uninspiring that it leaves you bored.
IANS, Now Running
If one talks about the other aspects of the film, from music to cinematography, they all seem pretty decent. If this movie works for you it’s because of Paresh and the fresh take at religion. Go watch it. It might be ages since we come across a decent com

Paresh Rawal is great with his trademark wit and humour very much in place but the concept hasn't translated so well from the play to film

Funny and original, but a bit too naive!
Reza Noorani, Bollywood Life
Oh My God directed by Umesh Shukla is based on a highly successful Gujrati play named ‘Kanji Virrudh Kanji’ by Bhavesh Mandalia, which was later adapted into Paresh Rawal’s own Hindi play ‘Krishan vs Kanhaiya’.

On the whole, Oh My God is a simple film which is straight from the heart. Interesting story, decent performances and some awesome court scenes are sure shot plus points. On the flip side a dragged out second half and a abrupt climax are some negatives. T

'OMGOh My God' turns out to be an engaging film which (thankfully) doesn't suffer from the first half-second half syndrome. It maintains good pace right through the narrative and keeps the viewer interested in knowing what would happen next.

On the whole, Oh My God! has novelty value and offers reasonably good entertainment. The producers have made a handsome profit by selling the all-India distribution and satellite rights at very fancy prices. The all-India distributors have paid big prices
