About the films

Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi's OMG 2 is the sequel to the 2012 release of the same name. The story of the film revolves around Kanti Sharan Mudgal (Pankaj), who is an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva. One day, his son is blamed for immoral conduct at school and is thrown out. Later, Kanti decides to leave the town with his family until a messenger of Lord Shiva (Akshay) arrives in his life. 

On the other hand, Gadar 2 continues with the story of Tara Singh and Sakina post-Independence. During the 'Crush India' campaign in 1971, their son gets imprisoned in Pakistan, leaving no choice for Tara Singh to travel to the neighbouring country and rescue his son.
