AP (Salman Khan) is a disgruntled man working as an anchor for a TV channel. He fails at whatever he attempts. And he always blames his bad luck on God's inefficiency. During the heights of his frustration, God (Amitab Bachchan) appears to him and tries to explain the rationale. But AP does not budge. Then God offers his position to AP for 10 days. After taking up the job of God, AP straightens his life by granting whatever he wished for in his personal life. The rest of the story is about how AP realizes that one has to put efforts and take care of himself instead of blaming God.
Salman Khan is pretty good as a disgruntled youngster. But he acts in a loud manner. Priyanka Chopra is good. Amitab Bachchan's cameo as God is nice. Anupam Kher is excellent as a nagging father who relentlessly offers a post in municipality to his son who worked for a TV channel. Sohail Khan tries to be funny, but his characterization is not appealing enough. Dalip Tahil is adequate. Rajpal Yadav entertains.
Story - Screenplay - direction: The story is heavily inspired by Jim Carrey's Hollywood blockbuster Bruce Almighty (2003). Salman Khan, Amitab Bachchan and Sohail Khan did the roles of Bruce, God and Evan Baxter respectively. If Bruce Almighty is an elegant comedy film, God Tussi Great Ho is a loud comedy that tends to be cheap at times. Direction of the film is old-fashioned. Screenplay of the film is not good. Narration is loud.
Technical departments: Music by Sajid – Wajid is mediocre. Cinematography is just ok. Dialogues are clichéd. Production values of the film are not up to the standards of big hero films.
Analysis: When you have stars like Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra, you expect some good production values. And the director could not adapt Bruce Almighty in a good way. The entire movie is bad except for some occasional comedy moments by Salman Khan. No wonder, the producer displayed a big thank you card to Salman Khan for minutes in the title cards of the film. Salman Khan has done a big favor to the producer and the director by acting in this film. But the makers made a big disappointment of the favor Salman Khan has done to them. On a whole, God Tussi Great Ho is a huge let down.
