The film industry witnessed an impressive box office surge over the past two weekends, driven by two highly anticipated movies: Warner Bros/Mattel’s toy adaptation, Barbie, and Christopher Nolan’s epic three-hour World War II-era drama, Oppenheimer. While Barbie is expected to outperform Oppenheimer on a global scale, the situation is distinct in India. Here, the Nolan brand holds significant allure, attracting enthusiastic audiences to watch Cilian Murphy’s exceptional performance in Oppenheimer, despite the higher ticket prices. Intriguingly, India stands out as the only country where Oppenheimer surpasses Barbie by a considerable margin.
