4.5 out of 10 Haven't seen it? Catch it now...
Andrew from Tipperary, 06 Feb 2014
This is about as good as film-making gets. It would take longer to say what's good about this movie than it takes to watch it...and don't let the length put you off, there's a nicely-placed intermission to let you watch it in two convenient parts. A brilliant telling of one of the twentieth century's most remarkable lives.

4 out of 10 kingsley at his best
finbarr from Cork, 13 May 2007
Very very long movie It spans from 1893 in south africa to 1948 in India to Gandhi's eventual assasination. Well worth a look as he was a pretty amazing man. Ben Kingsley in excellent form . Some very good special features included.

4.5 out of 10 Must See
Niall from Cork, 02 Jan 2008
For those interested in the historical perspective, this is essential viewing. For those who simply want to watch a good yarn, this won't let you down. Ben Kingsley is entirely convincing as the great man.

3 out of 10 Gandhi
Iris from Dublin, 03 Jun 2008
I am so glad that I finally got round to watching this. I learnt loads about Indian / Pakistani history (in a way that Wild Swans taught me much about China) as well as the amazing man and his circle.

What's it about....
Richard Attenborough's award-winning epic recounts the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi. In South Africa, a young Indian lawyer is booted off a train for refusing to ride second-class. Fed up with the unjust political system, he joins the Indian Congress Party, which encourages social change through passive resistance. When his "subversive" activities land him in jail, masses of low-skilled workers strike to support his non-violent yet revolutionary position. Back in...
