8. Indian-American's Anti-Obama Film Hit in U.S Box Office



Indian-American scholar Dinesh D’Souza directed an ironic anti-Obama movie in August, which turned out to be a huge success in U.S box office. The movie entitled "2016: Obama's America” received favourable response within the opening week and became one among the top ten movies in the United States. The movie also created a rage in political campaign, thus resulting in numerous controversies.




The movie is a corrosive anti-Obama documentary that managed to secure 7th position in the movie sweepstakes and mainly got much attention due to the ongoing Republican Convention, at that time.



 



D’Souza’s directed documentary is a conversion of his previous written piece that includes ‘Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream’ and ‘The Roots of Obama's Rage’ that was accepted by ultraconservatives and conspiracy theorists, even though liberals and Democrats criticized the writings as noxious and outright partisan against the president.
