I am glad that Sir Richard was not afraid of showing

Jinnah in his true colors in the movie Gandhi.

Jinnah started of on unsound ground as a Well Educated, WOG (Westernized Oriental Gentleman) who wanted to ape the British in every way possible.
He wanted lead the Congress after Gokhale and become India's first PM.

Along came Gandhi and his acolytes Nehru and Patel and upset all his plans by taking the freedom struggle directly to the masses and involving them in his civil disobedience campaigns.

Seeing his preeminent position usurped by a leader who had gone "native" in his own words,
Jinnah seethed with rage inside.

His chance came in the late 1930s and early 1940s when the Congress abdicated its
leadership during the Quit India movement while the Second World War was raging.

Jinnah used this interlude to get on good terms with arch India-hater Churchill and fulfill his recruitment quotas with a steady supply of Punjabi Mussallas to the Indian army.
Churchill egged him on and promised him all the help.

After the end of the war, Jinnah extracted his pound of flesh in the form of Pakistan, from the body of India.

No amount of reasoning would convince this mule-headed and sadistic man that religion cannot be the basis for Nationality.

Millions were uprooted from their homes and a million more died in fratricide.

All this was wrought to satisfy the ego of one impatient man who was Indian man for 71 years of his life.

Astounding performance

The movie still lives in most those who watched it. I am sure those who watched repeated numerous as I did. We Indians owe to Sir Attenbrough for the marvelous and ever green memories in to our mind. May his Soul Rest in peace.

I have seen it several times and I have shown it to my coroorate colleagues on the occasion of Independence Day 2013 and I have given Video of the Film some of them. I have given a brief presentation before screening it at our office premises and I like it verymuch and I like to request to make all the students all over India look at the film once, if the Educational institutions both Govt and private sector consider it as true to honour BAPU, father of our nation Bharat ( India) It helps a lot to promote peace and non-violence in the country and UN already declared 2 october as the day of Peace and Non-violence in honour of Mahatma Gandhiji Nulu Sree Rama Chandra Rao Bangalore

Gandhi moved in trains

Lucky that Gandhi moved in trains. It was easier for Attenborough to picturise the times of Gandhi even in 1982. I think he can do it even now. Tains in India has not changed..

I felt pained in 1981, to note that, even 34 years after getting INDEPENDENCE from the British, NO Indian could produce a film on Gandhiji. Even that had to be done by an other Britisher, named Sir Richard Attenborough. And that too, a VERY , VERY GOOD Film which won multiple Oscars and various other awards.
