The way of truth and love has always won.

''Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always.''

Biography of Mahatma Gandhi, the lawyer who became the famed leader of the Indian revolts against the British through his philosophy of non-violent protest.

Richard Attenborough's Masterful Epic

Brilliant is too light of a term to describe this epic. I usually don't fall for epics, but when I do I really like them. This is a movie where you don't care how long it is (in this case it's 3 hours 8 minutes), you just sit through it and enjoy every word that is uttered... every movement by Gandhi is wonderful and you realize how much of a hero this man truly was... not was, is. This man is sti... read more

A phenomenal biopic!

"They may torture my body, break my bones, even kill me, then they will have my dead body. NOT MY OBEDIENCE!"

For decades, Richard Attenborough's sweeping epic biographical film Gandhi has been incessantly subjected to critical acclaim and abject disparaging. The film won no less than 8 Oscars in 1983, including the holy three (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor) in addition to... read more

"21.4 Olen tästä jo aikaisemminkin maininnut, mutta näissä Oscareita kahmivissa historiallisissa elämäkertaelokuvissa on usein se ongelma, että filmin vahvuudet pyörivät vain ja ainoastaan yhden vahvan roolisuorituksen ympärillä ja kaikki muu sen ympärillä on pelkkää kulissia, jonka ainoana tarkoitusperänä on luoda uudelleen historiallisia tapahtumia. Kuten hiljattain katsomani Last King of Scotlandin tapauksessa, jossa Forest Whitaker veti elämänsä roolisuorituksen Idi Amini"

"Gandhi's character is fully explained as a man of nonviolence. Through his patience, he is able to drive the British out of the subcontinent. And the stubborn nature of Jinnah and his commitment towards Pakistan is portrayed. "

" The inspirational intent of this biographic picture is far better than the liberties that with the story and Ben Kingsley do his signature role that any other performance will be compared to. Epic movie where one clearly see that Richard Attenborough has been inspired by David Lean's films. It is a tiny bit on the long side for my taste and I felt that Gandhi is treated as a God with no personal flaws and seemingly "political" correct in everything he does which I find to be a problematic portr"

"31.5. Voihan se olla niinkin, että Gandhi ei ole hyvä elokuva. Mielestäni kolmeen tuntiin on jopa sisällytetty vähän materiaalia, ja mutkia vedellään suoriksi. Toki jo heti alkuun kerrotaan, ettei kenenkään elämää voi kertoa yhden elokuvan aikana. Siksipä onkin ymmärrettävää, että Gandhin elämästä on valittu ne tärkeimmät hetket, jotka voi jakaa kolmeen eri osaan. Ensiksi kerrotaan nuoresta herrasta, joka saa kipinän itsenäisyystaisteluun Etelä-Afrikan reissullaan. Pu"

I mean, it has nothing to do with Gandhi, the guy was just amazing and one of the most aspiring human beings that ever lived and Ben Kingsley was just really impressive in the best performance of his career and yet the whole thing was still missing something in my opinion.
