Randeep Hooda Suggests Oppenheimer Is A Propaganda Film, Says 'American Movies Tell The Entire…' – DellyRanks

Randeep Hooda Uses Oppenheimer to comment on the American style of film-making.

Randeep Hooda commented on the American style of film-making and cited the examples of Oppenheimer to claim their movies are propaganda.

Actor Randeep Hooda has raised doubts about the acclaim for the Oscar-winning movie Oppenheimer, suggesting that the U.S. tends to produce ‘propaganda’ films where Americans are depicted as heroes. He pointed out the tragedies following the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, which led to the destruction of these Japanese cities and the loss of numerous lives. The film focuses on J. Robert Oppenheimer, involved in creating the first atomic bombs.

In an interview with Ranveer Allahbadia, Randeep criticized the portrayal in Oppenheimer, stating, “America made Oppenheimer. That man built the atomic bomb. It was such a painful incident… in Japan, on civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they detonated the bomb at night. America is the good guy. What did they do in Vietnam? Their movies are propaganda, their movies tell the entire world that ‘we are the best army, we are the good guys. Japanese, Germans are bad’ And history also has the same thing, because they have written history.”

He added, “But this is not true. They even say that aliens always come to America. Aliens can only spot America. They made pictures on their heroes like Oppenheimer, Truman and the world watches them. We are always trying to demean our heroes because of political agenda.”

Oppenheimer, featuring Cillian Murphy as the physicist, triumphed at the Oscars this year, receiving widespread acclaim following its 2023 release. Despite its popularity, the film faced criticism for its portrayal of the complex historical character.

Speaking about Randeep Hooda’s latest film, released on March 22, Swatantra Veer Savarkar stars Randeep Hooda, Ankita Lokhande, Amit Sial, Apinderdeep Singh and Mark Bennington among others. The film is based on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar and his contribution during the Indian Independence struggle. The film opened to mostly positive reviews. Showsha gave the film a three-star rating and wrote, “Randeep Hooda has shouldered the film with ease. He proves that his performances in films like Sarabjit and Highway were not just flukes. Randeep gets under the skin and bones of the freedom fighter. You are spellbound with the conviction of his performance.”

“While Randeep was a treat for the eyes as an actor, he needs to polish his directorial skills. In an attempt to pack everything about the freedom fighter’s life, Randeep loses track in the second half of the film. As a result, several scenes were high on dialogues and performance but lacked depth,” the review added.
