Mahatma Gandhi: "An eye for an eye just ends up making the whole world blind". The non-violent leader is shown first as he is a lawyer as he rises to fame for protests against the British. Biography. Ben Kingsley as Gandhi was a prefect casting choice and nothing can top him. The directing was brilliant and well done, the writing was well written, and the line are so remediable as well.Richard Attenborough directed this movie brilliantly.

Gandhi is one of those great films - like Casablance or the Godfather - that gets nearly everything right. The spectacular cast is led by a completely immersive performance by Ben Kingsley, still possibly the best of his career. The film manages to hit on the highlights of Gandhi's lights without seeming episodic and by grasping the themes that the man himself expounded through his teaching.

Richard Attenborough's reverential biopic of Mohandas K. Gandhi that charts his progress from idealistic young lawyer fighting for civil rights in South Africa through to his assassination by a Hindu nationalist in 1948.

Gandhi review

Daniel Corleone - wrote on 07/19/2011

The story of a young lawyer Mohandas K. Gandhi (brilliantly portrayed by Ben Kingsley) starts when he himself has been a victim of racial discrimination (for being non-white) during a train ride. His main purpose is to end racism, discrimination, poverty and violence. Part of the main figures include the devoted wife Kasturba (Rohini Hattangandy), Candice Bergen the photo journalist from Time magazine, the inhumane General Smuts (Athol Fugard), a reasonable reporter Walker (Martin Sheen), Congress Party men Mohammed Ali Jinnah (Alyque Padamsee) and the reliable and faithful Pandit Nehru (Roshan Seth). The scenes of this film have more impact than any other horror film since this is based on real events. A prime example would be the Amritsar massacre where thousands of unarmed non …
