Tweet Review: 'Oh My God', first day, first show

New Delhi: Akshay Kumar's last film 'Joker' didn't do well at the box office, so he didn't leave any stone unturned to promote his latest home production ‘Oh My God’.

The film revolves around Kanji Bhai (Paresh Rawal) who becomes a non-believer when a tornado destroys his antique shop. He starts to question the existence of god but things take a dramatic turn when Lord Krishna (Akshay Kumar) decides to give him a surprise visit.
