OMG 2 Analysis:
OMG 2 gets it right in casting Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam for the subject. As lawyer who has negative shades Yami Gautam is great. But the makers doesn’t try to make her look as negative as Amrish Puri in Damini or Boman Irani in Jolly LLB. She tries to make the case with conservative beliefs while Kanti becomes more progressive. The performances make this court room drama highly intriguing. Also, OMG 2 gets it right in using Akshay Kumar’s cameo. It doesn’t try sell it as his movie all-through. The movie stays true to the subject in hand and Pankaj Tripathi performance carries the movie on his shoulders. OMG 2 is a movie that will definitely start some kind of discussion about Sex education in schools.
The movie has good writing from Amit Rai. He does a good job in directing it as well. OMG 2 suffers with slight underplay and one-sided discussion at places. It feels like the makers did not want to go too deep into the debate from the other side. The conversations are completely mature and direct as well at places. Unlike OMG, it doesn’t have the full-on debate in court room from both sides. OMG 2 stands on its own as a movie and delivers on the aspects that it wants people to discuss. BGM is minimal and effective. Cinematography and production values are good for the budget of the film. OMG 2 is a good watch for people about the subject it deals with.
OMG 2 Positives:
Yami Gautam performance
Akshay Kumar is good in his bits
OMG 2 Negatives:
Underplays too much at places
Absence of strong arguments from opposing side
Not really needed to be OMG sequel
OMG 2 Bottom-line: Sex Education is necessary!
