Customer Review

on 8 June 2007
Gandhi recaptures the historical period of the British Raj. It is an excellent portrait of a spiritual, political and a remarkable man, whose legacy inspired other great leaders like civil right leader Luther King and ex-South African president Nelson Mandela. The movie is an epic and chronological journey of Gandhi's life which includes the shocking trip to South Africa as a lawyer, family life, to his continued imprisonment, endless diplomacy campaigning and his tragic death. This man was truly an inspirational and a shining example to fellow politicians. His legacy continues to live on.

Gandhi is compelling and distressing viewing with so many unpleasant scenes. The scenes are really emotional. Ben Kingsley's acting of the great Indian Gandhi's is credibile and solid. This remarkable man continues to attract global attention and recognition for his historical accomplishments. Even in countries as far as Brazil, Gandhi status is displayed and he represents a symbol of peace. The cinemagraphy is outstanding, with the perfect locations chosen to blend with the British Raj period. The authencity of the actual period is clearly and accurately depicted in the movie. The movie requires immense patient to watch, as the duration is an enduring 3 hours of the great man life. A large bulk of Gandhi's life is incorporated into this movie. It is worth watching to gain valuable insights into this man and develop a solid appreciation and understanding of what propelled this leader to historical status and greatness he achieved so gracefully.

Gandhi truly justifies for its Oscar winning performance, as it contains the ingredients of an outstanding movie, which are already outlined above. Richard Attenborough's movie masterpiece Gandhi is a well delivered and an excellent epic, which takes a journey about a man who was diplomatic and always believed in non violence, no matter the severity of a situation. No one can rewrite the history book, the way this great Indian uniquely achieved with flying colours and in tender harmony. The DVD extras provides further insights into the life of Mahatma Gandhi, including pictures and documnetaties. If a survey poll is reproduced about greatest Indians to emerge, Gandhi without doubt would righteously earn the leading spot as the greatest Indian in my books.

If you are passionate about history and epics, Gandhi will certainly satisfy your taste.
