The 1982 biographical film ‘Gandhi’ is a timeless classic, which depicts the contribution of ‘The Father of our Nation’ in the struggle for Indian independence. The film propagates the message of following a non-violent approach against wrongdoers—the way Mahatma Gandhi passively protested against British Raj. The film also traces Mahatma Gandhi’s efforts to stop the partition of India, and his belief in secularism. Various events of MK Gandhi’s life, where he fought for the rights of oppressed minorities, are also powerfully recreated in ‘Gandhi’. Since the release of this film, several other films have been made on Mahatma Gandhi’s life and on Indian independence.
