In the early years of the 20th century, Mohandas K. Gandhi, 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', endeavouring to win freedom for his people without resorting to bloodshed.

"This is an incredible biopic of a great leader!"
"This is a beloved film that lauched its star into such acclaim that he is now knighted. It depicts Gandi in a sympathetic light, without revealing his racist, sexist youth or other personal flaws. It makes for a great, distorted, view of history. If you are not familiar with what I'm talking about here, look up reports by BBC, NPR and various university scholars, including Arundhati Roy. We are none of us perfect."
