God Tussi Great Ho Review
God Tussi Great Ho is inspired by the Hollywood film Bruce Almighty. Perhaps, it is better for the Indian film makers to buy the remake rights of successful Hollywood films rather than copy them unauthorisedly and messing up with the story in the name if indigenisation.

God Tussi Great Ho tells the story of Arun (Salman Khan) who has been trying to be a successful TV anchor but somehow loses out to competition. He starts to blame God for his travails in his work and for not achieving success.
Arun is in love with Alia (Priyanka Chopra), who is also a TV anchor in the same establishment, but he is unable to express his love for her. When Rocky (Sohail Khan) is appointed as another anchor for the channel, Arun is apprehensive that Rocky will win over Alia.
Circumstances go awry for Arun and he loses his job. He again blames God for all his own troubles.
Unexpectedly, Arun has an encounter with God (Amitabh Bachchan), who decides to give Arun the power to run this world for seven days, since Arun claims that he can do a better job.
After Arun gets the powers of God, he becomes successful. He becomes more confident.. He puts Rocky into an uneasy spot and wins Alia’s heart. But then Arun’s problems start as he wants to solve all the problems of all the people around him.
The film peters down to predictable climax.
Salman Khan, as usual, gave a spirited performance. Amitabh Bachchan and Anupam Kher are very competent in their roles. Sohail Khan gives an efficient essay of his role. Priyanka Chopra looks lackluster mainly because of very weak characterization.
All other actors are quite adequate in their given roles, though many of them are typecast.
Rumy Jaffrey, who wrote many good stories, should do what best suits him, that is writing stories, dialogues and Screenplays. Direction is not his cup of tea. Any other competent director would have made a hilarious laugh-riot of this film. God Tussi Great Ho makes you laugh once in a while, but you will find that you have more time to yawn.
Music by Sajid-Wajid is an extremely average fare. Choreography matches the music in quality. Cinematography is OK, but it could have been better. With stars like Amitabh, Salman and Priyanka, the production values should have been far higher than what they are.
God Tussi Great Ho is a classic example of a doggy mess of a copy-cat. Incompetent handling of the film makes it a damp squib. In spite of Salman, Amitabh, Priyanka and Anupam Kher, one will be left with an empty feeling after watching this film.
