Flashback Friday-Gandhi (1982)

There are only a few people in history where a single name conjures an image. One of these people is Mahatma Gandi.

In 1982, a biopic of his life was released in theaters. Starring English/Indian actor Ben Kingsley in the title role, the film follow’s Gandhi’s life as he fights the rights of the people of India opposite the British, who ruled a majority of the world at that time.

This is one of the films, I believe that everyone must see at least once. It is a powerful reminder that it only takes one person with one voice to inspire others and change the world. Gandhi’s choice of non-violent protest is also a reminder that one does not need to destroy things or hurt other human beings to protest against injustice.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
