Format: DVD
It all began simple enough - with the purchase of a first class train ticket by Mr. Mohandas Gandhi, Esq., recently arrived in South Africa, and unaware that as an Indian, he was required to travel third class and not entitled to such a ticket. Literally thrown off the train for his transgression, the young attorney, embodied to perfection by Ben Kingsley, spent a full night sitting on the platform, musing how best to respond to such discrimination. Shortly thereafter, and after consultations with established members of his community, he wrote his first treatises and organized his first demonstrations. And when participants of a protest assembly stood up and proclaimed their willingness to die in the fight against suppression, Gandhi once and for all formulated his doctrine of nonviolent protest: "They may torture my body, break my bones; even kill me. Then they will have my dead body - not my obedience."

Shot largely on four Indian locations, Richard Attenborough's nine-time Oscar-winning biography of Gandhi is a sweeping epic that takes the viewer back to Britain's colonial past, covering all major events of Gandhi's political career from its beginnings in South Africa to the March to the Sea and India's independence, and contrasting the luxurious lifestyle of the foreign rulers with the poverty of those they governed; that India which, as Gandhi soon realized, not only the British didn't understand, but whose population also could not have cared less about the activities of the Indian Congress Party, at the time little more than a group of well-to-do city dwellers mentally and socially almost as far removed from the rest of their country as the British.

Wow. Phenomenal movie. Feels like you are living the experiences as they happened. No wonder it got so many awards. Add this to your collection. Mahatma (Great Soul) Gandhi suffered for the nation and people he loved. Inspirational.

Format: DVD
While 'Gandhi' the DVD is certainly one of the most visually beautiful packages I have ever seen, it is also a sad commentary on the ultimate impact this movie has made on Western studios (read : nothing). The DVD comes in a see through white plastic case, with a clear band window running on either side. This lets us catch a glance of the real case cover, which has Gandhi in white, illuminated by the multitudes of men chanting beside him and around him. When you slip the case out of its' plastic holder, you are treated to the fuller version of the same picture, which, with the wonders of Adobe Photoshop, have rendered what was once just another studio shot of Ben Kingsley as Gandhi, into something far more magical and memorable.
All the details of the DVD are listed on the back of the white plastic case. The actual DVD case itself is in a wonderfully regal dark gold color, and the back picture is of the train sequence, with the words "Be the change you wish to see" beautifully etched across the skyline. Indeed, I have never come across a packaging for a disc that has so aptly captured the film's sentiment. On this front, I give the disc a full five stars.
However, the DVD itself smacks of hypocrisy. I find that everytime a reviewer gives this disc a low star rating due to the fact that the DVD blatantly insults the fact that Gandhi spoke Hindi and that all the main actors (save for Ben) were Indian, people are quick to claim that the review was 'not useful'. I am not sure why this is, but the truth is that this is very much an Indian film, with all the important roles played by Indian actors, and yet there is not ONE mention of ANY of their names on the DVD packaging.

Format: DVD
I was totally disappointed with the DVD. "Gandhi" is one of my favorite movies. But I was so much disappointed with the DVD that I almost disowned it. It does not have audio or subtitles in Hindi or any other Indian language. Gandhi was a Gujarati (mother tongue: Gujarati) and an Indian (Language: Hindi). The DVD has all sorts of subtitles and languages but does not have any language for Indians. I think the producers of the DVD owed this much to the very Mahatma - and his fellow countrymen - whose life has been depicted in the movie. Such products should not be simply weighed on money and how much revenue the sales would generate. Corporations owe something grander than that.

This is a great film which gives us a good portrayal of Gandhi's life and achievements.
The film portrays Gandhi as an honest, hard working and kind individual who always tried to do the right thing, even when facing overwelming resistance.
If you like the film I would suggest reading his autobiography The Story of My Experiments with Truth, which will give you an insight into his mind.
