Why is ‘Gandhi’ more than just an outstanding film?

          ‘Gandhi’, released in 1982, was directed by Richard Attenborough and is the story of the life of Mahatma Gandhi. It is an epic movie, covering Gandhiji’s life from his days as a struggling lawyer in South Africa, fighting against racism, to becoming the leader of the non-violence movement that won India freedom from British rule.

          ‘Gandhi’ is without doubt, one of the finest biographical epics ever made. The film shows that Gandhi was not just a simple, humble man in a loincloth, but a shrewd, practical man as well. Ben Kingsley’s portrayal of Mohandas K. Gandhi is amazing.

          The film won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director. ‘Gandhi’ is not just an outstanding film. Its importance lies in the fact that it brings a deeper message to its viewers-that peace, justice, and equality for all people can best be achieved through non-violent means.
