Known to be inspired by 2003 released Hollywood flick ‘Bruce Almighty’, God Tussi Great Ho has the spontaneous performance of Salman Khan but the depiction of script is a problem. Comedy is non uniform in the film and a few scenes are impressively acceptable. The songs of the film are choreographed well but the songs are rather disappointing for not being innovative.

The story basically revolves around Arun Prajapati (Salman Khan). Arun aims at becoming a big anchor but luck never favors him and all his attempts get shattered. Professionally he is a failure; his love life too isn’t something he could be proud off. For all the failures and troubles that Arun faces, he blames the one and only GOD. To Arun, God is responsible and accountable for everything that is bad in his life.

Alia Kapoor (Priyanka Chopra) is a brave, confident and gorgeous girl working for the same TV channel as Arun. She is Arun’s love who he always wishes to propose but never succeeds. And then we have an entry of Rocky (Sohail Khan) a smart, confident and successful guy, to add to his troubles. Who would Alia prefer… the looser Arun or the smart Rocky? Arun as usual holds God responsible for all his failures and one day to his surprise God appears in front of him and grants him special powers. What Arun does with these powers and how this does changes his perspective of both God and life forms the rest of the story.

The script could have been a strong point of the film but Rumi Jaffery concentrated more on direction though he hurried up with many sequences. The first half of the film is nicely paced but the second half doesn’t provide the kind of entertainment one expects to view at the interval point. Even the climax of the film is boring. Amitabh Bachchan, Rajpal Yadav, Anupam Kher and Salman Khan gave their best performance. Priyanka Chopra doesn’t have much to do in the film. But she does provide a glam quotient to the film. The star cast could have been an asset for the film but the movie did not have support from many sections to look brilliant.

The music is a disappointment, the costumes, cinematography is average and the overall impact of the movie can be termed as mediocre. There are definitely few funny moments which you surely tickle your laughter bones. It looks like, the film will do average business at the box-office.
