Where did you watch this movie?

Fresh and incisive, this contemporary drama provides a humorous and insightful look into closely held beliefs about faith, God, religion and justice. This thought-provoking tale primarily revolves around the experiences of Kanji Lalji Mehta (Paresh Rawal), a middle-class atheist Hindu. Ironically, he happens to own a shop of Hindu idols and antiques in Chor Bazaar, Mumbai. Inexplicably, when a low-intensity earthquake hits the city and Kanji's shop is the only shop that is destroyed. When he seeks compensation from the insurance company for his losses, he learns that the disaster claim does not cover damage is caused by natural calamities classified under "Act of God". In an act of defiance, Kanji files a lawsuit against God to compensate him for the losses, finding an extraordinary lawyer to fight his case. This lawsuit sparks a complex sequence of events, that is much bigger than his individual concerns. How will the lawsuit turn out? Will Kanji find a satisfactory solution to this problem?

This movie generated a lot of controversy over the depictions of prominent Hindu gods and Indian spiritual traditions. Jalandhar State Mahila Congress Vice President Nimisha Mehta lodged a complaint against the lead actors, Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar, and the producers of the film, for hurting religious sentiments of Hindus. The notice asked them to delete objectionable scenes and dialogues. Akshay Kumar was given police protection, after this incident.

Many stars of Hindi cinema played cameos in this movie including Prabhu Deva and Sonakshi Sinha in a special appearance in the song "Go Govinda", Salman Khan as the narrator in a teaser trailer, and Dhushenraj as a taxi driver.
