After getting positive reviews, Akshay Kumar-Paresh Rawal's OMG Oh My God! has collected over Rs. 16 crore over the weekend. The film that did not open well on Friday picked up on Saturday and Sunday after getting positive word of mouth, according to trade reports.

"Despite the film’s central protagonist being Paresh Rawal, OMG Oh My God! has managed collections of over 16 crores in the first weekend," reports

OMG"Great news to start the day. #OMG biz picks up and how! Sunday numbers are double of Friday in most circuits," tweeted trade expert Taran Adarsh.

"Much of these collections have to be attributed to some positive feedback that started coming its way once the film opened on Friday. This means that even though the opening wasn’t as strong (one expected at least 50% footfalls but it was much lesser at around 30%-40% mark), Saturday and then Sunday saw good escalation coming its way," according to
