Cillian Murphy plays the physicist in Oppenheimer. Florence Pugh, Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., and others also appear in the movie.
The Christopher Nolan-directed film Oppenheimer got off to a strong start at the Indian box office. According to a report, the movie made over 13 crore rupees in India. The movie’s opening day revenue in India has eclipsed that of Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. It cost 12.5 crore when it debuted in theaters.
The biopic, which takes place during World War II, follows J. Robert Oppenheimer, a physicist best recognized as the inventor of the atomic bomb. It takes place at a time in history when he knew that testing the atomic bomb would set the atmosphere on fire and end the world, but he nevertheless went ahead and did it. In World War II, J Robert Oppenheimer contributed to the development of nuclear weapons.
The dense first hour of Oppenheimer is a chore to follow, as we’re bombarded with information and pushed into a frenzy of names, places, and events in quick, frantic succession, according to the Hindustan Times review of the movie. The Manhattan Project, Robert’s involvement in the struggle against the Nazis, his time as a teacher who introduced quantum mechanics to the US, his affiliation with the communist party, his tumultuous relationship with Jean Tatlock (Florence Pugh), and more. all at once. In one go. A movie that requires your full attention to keep up. Oppenheimer is not a movie that tells a story as much as one that expects you to know that story in order to entirely engage with it.”
