The upcoming Hindi film ‘Oh My God 2’ (OMG 2), starring Akshay Kumar and Yami Gautam, was screened in front of the Examining Committee of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on July 12th, 2023. This action is being taken as a preventative measure to avert any potential controversy or response like what the recent movie “Adipurush” experienced.


The Certification Process

-The Examining Committee and Review Committee: A film is watched by at least seven censors during certification, including the Regional Officer, who is made up of three men and four women. The Examining Committee conducts the initial screening, and the Review Committee then oversees the screening.

– Filmmakers’ Responsibility: The CBFC does not possess the authority to ban a film outright but can choose not to issue a certificate if objections arise. In such circumstances, it falls on the filmmakers to make the appropriate adjustments to allay these worries.


Mixed Reactions to ‘Oh My God 2’ Teaser

– Teaser Release: The makers of ‘Oh My God 2’ recently released the film’s teaser, which showcases Akshay Kumar as Lord Shiva and Pankaj Tripathi as an ardent devotee. Similar to its predecessor, “Oh My God,” the story appears to be about God and humanity’s relationship.

– Social Media Reactions: While some individuals on social media praised the teaser, others objected to depicting anointing scenes involving Lord Shiva, claiming that their sentiments were hurt.


CBFC Review and Silence from Stakeholders

– Recommendation for Review: Following the initial screening, ‘Oh My God 2’ was recommended for further review by the CBFC’s Review Committee, as a precautionary measure.

– Silence from Viacom India: The production company behind the film, Viacom India, has remained tight-lipped and refrained from providing any details on the matter. Other parties with a stake in the film have likewise stayed silent.


Lessons from ‘Adipurush’ Backlash

– Criticism of ‘Adipurush’: The film ‘Adipurush,’ directed by Om Raut, faced significant criticism for its dialogues and poor visual effects (VFX) quality.

– Revised Version and Apology: As a response to the backlash, the filmmakers released a revised version of ‘Adipurush’ by altering some of the dialogue. The dialogue writer, Manoj Muntashir, issued an apology on social media.


Undisclosed Concerns in ‘Oh My God 2’

– Unspecified Concerns: The specific scenes or dialogues in ‘Oh My God 2’ that raised concerns for the CBFC have not been disclosed yet.

– Impact of Review: Once the film undergoes review by the committee, the CBFC will decide on its certification, which may impact the film’s content and eventual release.



‘Oh My God 2,’ directed by Amit Rai, features Akshay Kumar as Lord Shiva and includes notable actors such as Yami Gautam, Pankaj Tripathi, and Arun Govil.
