If Gandhi wanted, he could have created a vietnam like situation where the British army would have had to leave India with their tails between their legs. But he chose the non violent path. It is not the British who took pity on Gandhi, it was the exact reverse.

This acclaimed biographical drama presents major events in the life of Mohandas Gandhi (Ben Kingsley), the beloved Indian leader who stood against British rule over his country. Dedicated to the concept of nonviolent resistance, Gandhi is initially dismissed by English officials, including the influential Lord Irwin (John Gielgud), but eventually he and his cause become internationally renowned, and his gatherings of passive protest move India towards independence.

FILM DESCRIPTION: 
 
It was Richard Attenborough’s lifelong dream to bring the life story of Indian political and spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi to the screen. When it finally reached fruition in 1982, the 188-minute, Oscar-winning Gandhi was one of the most exhaustively thorough biopics ever made. The film begins in the early part of the 20th century, when Mohandas K. Gandhi (Ben Kingsley), a British-trained lawyer, forsakes all worldly possessions to take up the cause of Indian independence. Faced with armed resistance from the British government, Gandhi adopts a policy of “passive resistance,” endeavoring to win freedom for his people without resorting to bloodshed. In the horrendous “slaughter” sequence, more extras appear on screen than in any previous historical epic. The supporting cast includes Candice Bergen as photographer Margaret Bourke-White, Athol Fugard as General Smuts, John Gielgud as Lord Irwin, John Mills as the viceroy, Martin Sheen as Walker, Trevor Howard as Judge Broomfield, and, in a tiny part as a street bully, star-to-be Daniel Day-Lewis. Gandhi won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director.

19 Mahatma Gandhi – dying for freedom | DW Documentary

31 jan. 2018

Indian freedom fighter Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on 30 January 1948. Why was Gandhi killed and what events occurred before and after Gandhis murder?

This documentary shows how India was dogged by nationalism and religious conflict on its path to independence – and how these factors mark the country to this day. On 20 January 1948, Gopal Godse, a Hindu fanatic, attempted to assassinate Mahatma Gandhi. Ten days later, his brother Nathuram Godse managed to finish the job: he killed Gandhi. For Gopal Godse, India’s Independence Day in August 1947 was a day of mourning. “Bharat Mata,” “Mother India,” which the young Brahmin zealously worshipped, had lost many of its provinces. Predominantly Muslim East Bengal had become East Pakistan, whilst western Punjab, the provinces of Sindh and Baluchistan and the land of the warlike Pashtuns made up West Pakistan a thousand miles away. This too was predominantly Muslim. Godse didn’t just see the former colonial power, Great Britain, as responsible for the “amputation,” he also believed the Muslims were to blame. But, in Godse’s eyes, the main culprit was a Hindu who was celebrated as a hero because he had defied the English, a small man with round wire glasses and a white cotton robe: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, also known as “Mahatma,” the great soul. The Godse brothers did not care that Gandhi had always condemned conflict between the various religious communities and opposed the partition of India. They were members of the far-right Hindu Mahasabha, the “Great Assembly of Hindus,” which had close links with the anti-British and fascist National Volunteer Corps. And now extremist Hindus are gaining ground in India again…

The film ‘Mahatma — A Great Soul of 20th Century’ is a documentary film which records the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and his social, political and spiritual influence on the country during pre and post independence times. The film starts with Gandhi’s childhood, his early influences, and his study at England and then goes on further to South Africa to practice Law. When he attempted to claim his rights as a citizen, he was abused and soon saw that all Indians suffered similar treatment. He developed a method of action based upon the principles of courage, nonviolence and truth called Satyagraha. Using the principles of Satyagraha, he led the campaign for Indian independence from Britain. Gandhi had been an advocate for a united India where Hindus and Muslims lived together in peace and helped free the Indian people from British rule through nonviolent resistance, and is honored by Indians as the father of the Indian Nation or ‘Mahatma’, meaning Great Soul.

BIOGRAPHY® profiles the small man who took a great nation on his shoulders and changed the world. Trace his rise to power and fearless campaign of truth, non-violence and non-cooperation with injustice that defeated the British Empire. Biographers offer insight into his surprising personal life, while historians explore his remarkable accomplishments.

32 Gandhi’s legacy – Where is India headed? (2/2) | DW Documentary

Back to menu

12 aug. 2022


 
India, the world’s largest democracy, turns 75. With his special brand of non-violent resistance, Mahatma Gandhi paved the way for the country’s independence. He campaigned for a pluralistic, secular state and equal opportunities for all. What remains of those ambitions, today?

How far as India distanced itself from the ideals of equality and non-violence espoused by Mahatma Gandhi and other founding fathers? How are democracy, human rights and social justice faring today – and where is India headed?

These are the questions that form the basis for this film’s narrative. The film focuses on people still working today to keep Gandhi’s ideals alive – a challenge, as contemporary reality is often a world away from those goals. Taken together, their stories form a mosaic representing the multi-faceted nation that is India.

A nation marked by stark poverty and great wealth. On the one hand blighted by Hindu nationalism, violence against women and overwhelmed by major environmental problems. On the other, India fosters great geopolitical goals and has an ambitious space program. Although discrimation on the basis of caste is banned by the constitution, the country continues to marginalize certain sections of its population; children continue to be exploited in urban brickyards; and indigenous populations are driven from their land to make way for corporate development. At the same time, India is a highly spiritual place with a rich cultural history; a nation that comes up with innovative, critical and creative responses to all manner of problems. Both films in this two-part documentary explore the intersections of these colliding worlds – brought to life through personal stories.

Contemporary accounts of India frequently look to the past, when the foundations were laid for the world’s largest democracy. One person in particular who was able to build a bridge between the past and the present is Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, who was murdered in 1948. Arun lived with his grandfather for many years and relates personal anecdotes from that time. He captured his grandfather’s ideas in a well-respected book (“The Gift of Anger: And Other Lessons from My Grandfather Mahatma Gandhi”) and draws comparisons between India’s recent history and its current predicament.

The Indian academic and globalization critic Vandana Shiva sees a vast chasm between Gandhi’s ideals and the modern reality. Her stance is unequivocal: civil disobedience is necessary to this day.

8 nov. 2009

In this final episode, Mishal Husain (Pakistani origin) explores the dramatic last years of Gandhi’s life, which culminated in his death by an assassin’s bullet. She gets to the bottom of an enduring mystery – why is Gandhi revered as Father of the Nation, when India turned its back on Gandhi’s blueprint for the country? In the final episode, Mishal retraces Gandhi’s visit to England in 1931 and uncovers evidence that Gandhi may have unwittingly contributed to the eventual partition of India. Newsreel footage from the time captures Gandhi meeting the people of Lancashire and London’s East End, and Tony Benn recalls meeting him as a six-year-old boy. Sixteen years later India is free, but by then Gandhi is a broken man: sidelined from the centre of power and devastated by partition and the horrific violence that independence brings. But it is Gandhi’s darkest hour that finally brings his greatest triumph. This documentary is telecasted in BBC around Gandhi Jayanthi year 2009. It’s one of the best and reasonable effort to find imperfection in Gandhi.
