Usually when i see a really long film like this,three hours,on the list i get a bit depressed and dread having to troll through the whole thing,but this one was very interesting.I have to say myself i don’t or didn’t know much about Gandhi before watching this.I knew he pioneered the peaceful protest and that’s about it.We see Gandhi as young lawyer landing in Southern Africa for the first time and being treated like a second class citizen because of his colour.He get the media riled and sorts out the whole situation.A few years later he’s off to India to sort them out as an independent country not ruled by the Brits.This is a bit trickier.Lots of people killed and a brutal massacre to boot.Overall the film paints a bad picture of the Brits and their whole view on the situation.Keep an eye out of Daniel-Day Lewis in the first 10 minutes with an un-credited cameo.
