...Eloquently expressive and technically exquisite....The score, springing from the talents of Ravi Shankar and George Fenton is a major plus in evocation of the film's many emotional variations...

Tthe film Gandhi is more stuffy than stately, more prestigious than prodigious. It never quite captures the essence of Gandhi, or the influence he exerted on other leaders, including Martin Luther King. It's a broad but shallow river of information. Full Review

Product Description:

This Oscar-winning biopic is the acclaimed dramatization of the life of Mohandas "Mahatma" Gandhi, from his beginnings as a South African-educated lawyer through his historic, galvanizing struggle to free India from British Colonial rule. With a large, distinguished cast, headlined by Ben Kingsley in a nuanced performance, Sir Richard Attenborough's biopic is a classic of the genre. GANDHI earned a mammoth 11 Academy Award Nominations and took home nine statuettes, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--Ben Kingsley, and Best (Original) Screenplay.
