Oppenheimer, a highly anticipated Hollywood film, has trending across the nation. This film is based on Scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who made the Atomic Bomb. The movie based on the life of this scientist includes a moment that is generating controversy in India. In this scene, Oppenheimer is seen reading the Bhagavad Gita while having intercourse, which has now raised chaos.
Bhagavad Gita is one of the greatest Hindu Scriptures from Mahabharata. Many people are opposing this film as Bhagavad Gita is read during an intimate moment. This scene offended the sentiments of the Indian Public. Anurag Thakur, the Indian Minister of Information and Broadcasting, has also expressed his opposition to it. However, ‘Krishna’ from the most watched series of ‘Mahabharat’ has said that the Bhagavad Gita has not been criticized in this scene.
What did Nitish Bhardwaj say on ‘Oppenheimer?
Nitish Bhardwaj expressed his opinion of the movie, saying-
“There is no insult to the Bhagavad Gita in the film. Concerning “Oppenheimer,” Hindus and the government should exercise moderation. There is no need to ban the film. The creator of the atomic bomb is regretful at the moment which is the subject of so much debate.”
In this scene,” Nolan tries to show how a crime is weighing down Oppenheimer. He is thinking of creating an atomic bomb, due to which millions of people were killed in Japan. He is questioning whether he correctly followed his religion or not.
Nitish Advised to Watch the Film
Apart from controversy, Reel Life Krishna advised people to watch the film. He said- There are some people out there, who want to represent Hinduism negatively. But there is nothing like that in the film. The government shouldn’t be in a rush to ban the movie.
The verses of the Bhagavad Gita tell us about our obligations and the fight against injustice. The movie depicts the same thing as well. Hinduism and our scriptures are powerful. Hinduism and the Bhagavad Gita are currently receiving attention from the globe. In the interview, even the real “Oppenheimer” acknowledged Gita.
