    My parents and I LOVED this movie. Reminded us of Gandhi both the film (brilliant acting, fascinating history) and the man. We highly recommended it!

    It’s vivid, substantial and works hard to be worthy, but as it ticks off the milestones of a monumental life it flickers more often than it really catches fire.

    He decided early on what he wanted and pursued it straightforwardly all his life. That rarely yields riveting drama, however well-intentioned filmmakers may be.

    The movie is extremely well produced, it features two excellent lead performances, and it is dull.
