A middle-class Gujarati agnostic named Kanji Lalji Mehta runs a Hindu antiquities and idols store in Mumbai. On one of these days, a low-intensity earthquake strikes the city, and Kanji's business is the only one that is destroyed. He is making light of the religious rituals going on around him. His atheism is to blame, according to his family and friends.
Kanji discovers at the insurance agency that the catastrophe claim excludes any damage brought on by the "Act of God" natural disasters. He chooses to sue God out of desperation but is unable to locate an attorney for such a case. After Kanji opts to fight alone, a poor Muslim lawyer named Hanif Qureshi assists him in filing the case. Religious leaders Siddheshwar Maharaj, Gopi Maiyya, and their group's founder, Leeladhar Swamy, get legal notifications inviting them to court as agents of God, along with the insurance company.
Kanji finds himself dealing with armed extremists and harassment as the court case gets underway and develops notoriety for its peculiar nature, his mortgage bank is occupying the home, and his wife and children have left him. Krishna Vasudev Yadav, who identifies as a real estate agent from Gokul, Uttar Pradesh, but who appears to perform fanciful feats that are impossible for a human, saves him from all of this.
There is a public uproar over the case. Kanji approaches the media on Krishna's recommendation and receives extensive coverage. As other persons with comparable circumstances join him in the lawsuit, the number of claims increases, and Catholic priests and Muslim Mullahs are added as defendants. Krishna directs Kanji to sacred texts including the Bhagavad Gita, the Quran, and the Bible when the court requests written evidence that the earthquake was an "Act of God." When Kanji studies them, he discovers a paragraph in each one that claims that God alone is responsible for creating the universe and everything that occurs in it, from start to finish. This enhances his argument and broadens popular acceptance.
But while in court, Kanji has a stroke and is taken to the hospital, where he falls into a coma and becomes crippled. After a month, he discovers Krishna when he opens his eyes. Krishna reveals that he is God and proves it by fully curing Kanji. He further explains that He was the one who burned Kanji's business because he wanted to punish the godmen who displayed their fear to the public in order to make money. He also says that He created the entire world, including humans and animals, but that religion was invented by humans. Contrary to what the godmen assert, he also says that since he created the entire world, he does not enjoy living in temples and is uninterested in the sacrifices that followers make in their honour. Instead, he produced millions of hungry people who would welcome receiving such offerings if they were instead given to them.
He did this by causing the disaster because he knew that if he didn't, an agnostic like Kanji would end up discovering them. He also began to assist Kanji with his lawsuit by posing as a human and joining him. Finally, he revealed himself in his real form so that Kanji realised that even though he exists, he does not really live in temples but rather in every creature he created.
Kanji finds that the lawsuit was decided in his favour and that the court ordered religious institutions to pay the damages to all of the plaintiffs; as a result, people have started to revere Kanji as a deity. This has been used by Leeladhar, Gopi Maiyya, and Siddheshwar, who established a temple in honour of Kanji and amassed millions in donations. Krishna emphasizes to Kanji that as God, his role is to demonstrate good and wrong, leaving it up to individuals to make their own decisions. Kanji chooses to take offence. He shatters his own statue while warning the gathering not to put their faith in god-men. He counsels people to look for God within themselves and among others rather than in statues, saying that belief should come from within and that God may be found anywhere, not just in temples. He warns people against placing their faith in false gods because it is their profession to make money off of religion.
Krishna happily observes as Kanji speaks, then disappears when Kanji tries to contact him. When Kanji and his family are reunited, he notices Krishna's key chain lying on the ground. When he is about to keep it, Krishna's voice tells him to throw away the key chain since all this time he had fought against the worship of idols and the fear of God. Kanji grinned and threw it away, seeing it flash away in the sky.
A sequel to the movie titled Oh My God 2 is set to release soon with a stellar starcast of Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam.
