Oppenheimer movie is based on the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer. It describes the story of a time when Robert Oppenheimer grappled with anxiety and homesickness while he was studying quantum physics abroad under the famous Patrick bracket at the University of Cambridge in the Cavendish laboratory.

He gets so frustrated that he leaves the poisoned apple to kill his professor, Blackett, just because of his attitude. Nails Bohar, a famous scientist who has done a lot of jobs in physics, advises open-minded students to study theoretical physics. After the completion of his PhD, he finally met the famous scientist Isidor Isaac Rabi. In Switzerland, they again meet with theoretical physicist Werner Heisenberg.

Oppenheimer teaches at the University of California to expand quantum physics research in the US. He also starts teaching at Berkeley and the California Institute of Technology. He marries two girls, the first, Catherine, known as Kitty, a biologist and ex-communist, and the other, Jean Tatlock, a troubled communist psychiatrist who later commits suicide and takes her own life. When the Germans succeed for the first time in splitting the item, it rings a bell in Oppenheimer’s ears.

In 1942, for the very first time, US Army colonial Leslie Groves, who was also the director of the Manhattan Project, recruited an open hammer for the project of creating an atomic bomb in the Los Alamos Laboratory. Oppenheimer has now assembled his team for the construction of the atomic bomb, and his team includes Hans Bethe, Edward Teller, Enrico Fermi, Leo Szilard, and David L.

Hill. After Germany surrendered, it seemed like the atomic bomb was useless, but as if Japan were not surrendering, the President, Harry S. Truman, finally ordered the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Oppenheimer further shows regret about the atomic bombings, and he completely isolates himself from the United States Atomic Energy Commission.

In fake trial allegations applied against Oppenheimer, the use of communism comes as a tool of defaming because of his relative past relationship with his girlfriend Kitty, who was an ex-communist. Oppenheimer received the Enrico Fermi Award as a gesture of political repack. Then I had in the movie, and a very lost part, it revealed the set open timer, and Einstein never discussed Straus rather, they were talking about the destruction of nuclear weapons.


The interval of the story marks the completion of the atomic bomb. And then it’s further used in the stopping of World War 2. The Allies’ occupation of Germany in the Second World War denotes that without the use of an atomic bomb. The work could be done, but later, the use of an atomic bomb was necessary when Japan was not surrendering in front of the Allies.

So, with the permission of the president of America, drops two nuclear bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After the casualties at the scene, Oppenheimer seems to show some regret. The president dismissed him from his position as advisor to the United States Atomic Energy Commission.

This era marks a new time of open-heart life, where he suffers a lot; he suffers just because of his wife’s link with communism. He also gets criticism because of his communication and his conversation with Albert Einstein. Now Straus becomes his archenemy, and he holds a private security hearing before a personnel security board. Where he tells everybody about Oppenheimer’s loyalty to America.

He tries to lower his political influence and his importance as a famous personality in the nuclear program. Openheimmer’s wife, Kitty herself, presents in the hearing, and she defies all the misconceptions and claims regarding Openheimmer’s association with communism. After a very strict and difficult time, Oppenheimer ultimately regained his lost position, not just as a loyal American but as an influential nuclear scientist.

He attends many ceremonies and functions held by the governments, and he also starts visiting the universities again. Later, after many years, it is revealed that Straus’ anger toward Oppenheimer is nothing but a misconception.


The end of the story also marks the same chain of events that are being followed in the same direction. Oppenheimer has finally become an apple of everybody’s eye. It becomes soon quite clear that he is not proud of just his invention of atomic bombs. But he seems to be distressful of the nuclear bombings held in Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

He even shows this regret on multiple occasions on television shows and in his news articles that were later published. Oppenheimer’s loyalty and his association with America were challenged many times. But in the end, it is all resolved when nothing goes against Oppenheimer. Not even a single connection of him with an association regarding communism was ever found.

Openheimmer’s wife appears in front of the court and confronts all the illegal claims of the people against her husband. Finally, both just came out of all this public humiliation and suffering that they had been suffering from for a very long time. Oppenheimer receives a lot of invitations from many people.

And finally, in 1963, Oppenheimer also received an Enrico Fermi award from the president. At the end of the movie, hammers and Albert Einstein’s conversation were all about the lives of the people. Oppenheimer was never proud of his invention of nuclear bombs. Rather, he seems to show regret at the killing of so many people.

Einstein also showed some regret in the conversation. They both seem to be upset about the innovations in atomic energy. This final conversation is a portrait at the end of the movie. At the very end of the movie, a portrayal of a flashback reveals that Oppenheimer and Einstein’s conversation was not against anyone. But full of regrets and their concerns about future atomic programs.
