Earlier, while disclosing the day 1 collection of OMG 2, Taran Adarsh stated that the movie is “heavily dependent on word-of-mouth.” He added that this factor will determine the movie’s fate at the box office. The trade analyst claimed that on its opening day, OMG 2 performed beyond expectations. However, the day 1 numbers were “severely impacted by the Gadar 2 wave.”
Taran Adarsh wrote, “OMG 2 fares much better than expected, although the numbers are severely impacted by the Gadar 2 wave… Recorded better occupancy at prime multiplexes in evening and night shows, which should ensure solid growth over the weekend… Fri Rs 10.26 cr. #India biz. OMG 2 is heavily dependent on word of mouth and this factor will decide where it lands in the coming days… The Independence Day holiday [on Tuesday] will certainly boost its biz, but it needs to sustain beyond the big holiday to establish itself.”

The glowing word of mouth has come into play… #OMG2, as predicted, shows EXCELLENT GROWTH on Day 2… The solid gains at national chains – despite #Gadar2 juggernaut – is a clear indicator that #OMG2 has found acceptance… Fri 10.26 cr, Sat 15.30 cr.

Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his NDTV review, gave 2 out of 5 stars to Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2. Talking about the movie, he added, “God’s messenger in OMG is embodied by a flamboyant Akshay Kumar. The star’s presence in the film is understandable. It enhances the box-office potential of the venture. But why Kanti Sharan Mudgal would need divine intervention to sort out his and his son’s everyday problems in the real world is never clearly and convincingly established.”
The film also stars Yami Gautam in an important role.
