After a prolonged history of sequels falling short of surpassing the original’s legacy, the film “OMG 2,” starring Pankaj Tripathi, Akshay Kumar, and Yami Gautam, stands out as an exception. This movie underscores the significance of sex education while actively addressing the misinformation stemming from the absence of a comprehensive curriculum in schools.

The storyline revolves around Kanti Sharan Mudgal, a devout follower of Lord Shiva, whose son faces suspension from school after a non-consensual video of him engaging in masturbation surfaces online. Subsequently, Kanti comes to realize that his son fell victim to misinformation propagated by bullies who convinced him that he had a small penis and inherent issues. His son attempts to seek guidance from his school teacher and turns to pseudo-experts who wrongly guide him into purchasing medications that supposedly enhance his genital size. Tragically, this leads to an overdose of Viagra pills, resulting in hospitalization due to guilt and shame.

Akshay Kumar, portraying a divine messenger, enlightens Kanti about the true source of blame: society’s failure to provide proper education. This realization compels Kanti to sue all responsible adults, including the school and even himself, for his son’s plight.

Subsequently, the narrative transforms into a courtroom drama with Kanti taking up his son’s case, while Sanjana Tripathi (Yami Gautam) represents the opposition, defending the school and others involved. The film admirably tackles the societal stigma surrounding sex and underscores the crucial necessity for sex education in school curricula.

In a society where innocent displays of affection are often labeled indecent and lewd, the movie boldly delves into the subject by drawing from ancient texts like the Kamasutra and Panchatantra. It offers a social commentary on the gradual transformation of sex into a taboo, despite the nation’s celebrated writings on the topic.

The silence surrounding sex breeds ignorance, which in turn spawns myths and misguided information. Individuals resort to unreliable sources like pornography or self-proclaimed experts, leading to potentially harmful and even violent sexual practices. The film sheds light on the inadequate approach to sex education, where biology lessons hurriedly brush over the reproductive system, leaving important questions unanswered and spreading misinformation. “OMG 2” takes a significant step towards normalizing conversations about sex in a country where it is often perceived as unnatural and immoral.

Kanti’s son’s misconception about enlarging his penis size is just one example of the widespread misinformation prevalent in society. The film addresses this sensitive topic with care. However, there are instances when the film verges on being didactic, overlooking the struggle to eradicate the social taboo surrounding sex. The conclusion of the film seems somewhat rushed, with society suddenly embracing open discussions about sex. This hurried climax fails to fully acknowledge the intricacies and nuances of a healthy and open conversation about sex.

Nonetheless, the film acts as a commendable starting point. It skillfully employs satire to hold a mirror up to society, encouraging introspection and revealing our collective hypocrisy without shying away from discussing subjects considered “vulgar.” Nevertheless, there remains a considerable distance to traverse. The controversies surrounding the film, the need for numerous edits, and its “A” certification from the censor board underscore the imperative for further progress and improvement.
