OpIndia, on its part, tried to document as much as we could to ensure that our readers have the information that they deserve. 

As we bid adieu to 2022, here is a list of the top 10 most read articles on OpIndia.

1. ‘Film Critic’ Anupama Chopra attacks Madhvan starrer ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ for showing ISRO scientist as a ‘true-blue Hindu patriot’. 

2022 was a year that saw a Bollywood battle – between the industry and its viewers. While several movies that were expected to do well at the Box Office tanked, there were other off-beat movies based on ignored realities that did exceptionally well. With star kids and A-listers failing to impress at the Box Office, the ‘liberals’ in the media launched a media blitzkrieg against movies that displayed the truth.

In July 2022, movie critic Anupama Chopra reviewed R Madhavan’s newly released movie named ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ to report a problem with the subject’s Hindu religion and his patriotism. Writing a review of the movie based on the life of Padma Bhushan Nambi Narayanan, Chopra said that the movie repeatedly highlighted Nambi’s patriotism and also leaned pointedly into his religion.

“It’s admirable that the film has brought Narayanan’s many accomplishments into the spotlight, but the screenplay repeatedly underlines his patriotism and also leans pointedly into his religion”, she said in the review that was published on July 1.

The movie ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ is the story of one of India’s greatest space scientists, Nambi Narayanan.

2. Russia removes US, UK, Japan flags from rocket carrying OneWeb satellites but keeps Indian flag, puts conditions for the launch

4. Many Hindus still think what Nupur Sharma said was ‘unnecessary’: Here is a necessary read for them

On the 5th of June, BJP suspended the now-former spokesperson of the party, Nupur Sharma, after certain Muslim countries started getting irate about certain comments she had made during a debate (basically, quoting the Hadit).

There was widespread condemnation by the Hindus for the manner in which Nupur Sharma was being hounded by the Islamists. However, there were still some Hindus who believed that what Nupur Sharma said as a response, after a Muslim panelist made disparaging statements against Hindus, was ‘unnecessary’.

Hindus today might believe that Nupur Sharma’s comment was “unnecessary”, but if there was a word of caution, it would be this – tomorrow, they will say your very existence, the existence of the dirty Kafir that they are theologically and viscerally meant to hate is an affront to their faith.
