Synopsis:
Gandhi was not a ruler of nations, nor did he have scientific gifts. Yet this small, modest man did what others before him could not. He led an entire country to freedom - he gave his people hope. Gandhi, the man of the century is explored in this breathtaking, unforgettable motion picture. After 20 years in the making, this masterful epic garnered nine 1982 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay.
In stirring detail, Gandhi's life, principles and power explode on the screen with vivid scenes such as the horrific massacre at Amritsar, where the British opened fire on 15,000 unarmed men, women and children, and the dramatic march to the sea where Gandhi led thousands of his fellow Indians to prove that sea salt belonged to all and was not just a British commodity.

Ghandi - Gandhi review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
24/10/2007

Beautiful photography provides a majestic backdrop to the unfolding saga of Ghandi developing as a man and finding a role in Indian life. Fabulous acting but it is a long film and you need to concentrate.Not a film for the faint hearted but worth dedicating time to.

Easy to understand - Gandhi review by AF

Spoiler Alert
01/02/2021

This epic and beautifully acted film, gives an unbiased and easy to understand "potted history" of the run up to Indian Independence and the problems of "Partition". I enjoyed it as much this time as I did when it first was released. Ben Kingsley is outstanding in his role as Gandh.

I would recommend it to anyone interested in modern history.
