You’ll be able to even inform who’s profitable the authorized battle fought on ethical grounds nevertheless it’s nonetheless fairly fascinating.
It’s uncommon for sequels to outshine the unique and writer-director Amit Rai’s intelligent and crisp courtroom comedy fulfils this mammoth activity.

The A ranking is a matter given how necessary this movie is for households and youngsters.
OMG 2 boasts of a gifted ensemble forged. Pankaj Tripathi is great as a father torn between guilt and anger. Akshay’s starry presence and hippie look make an impression. He buzzing ‘Udd jaa Kaale Kaava’ of Gadar is a chef’s kiss, for the reason that two movies (Gadar 2 and OMG 2) conflict on the field workplace. Yami Gautam is honest however the try and venture her as a menacing lawyer by resorting to over the shoulder digicam angles don’t work.
