Gandhi (1982) was produced and directed by Richard Attenborough and written by John Briley. Starring Ben Kingsley, Candice Bergen, Edward Fox, John Gielgud, Trevor Howard, John Mills, Roshan Seth and Martin Sheen, it is one of the most iconic films of all times. The story is that of the Indian lawyer who returned from racially segregated South Africa to drive the British out of his home country through successive acts of non-violent protest. The portrayal of how simplicity and the power collectivism can throw over a whole British empire bringing them to their knees.
On receiving the Oscar for ‘Best Picture’ Sir Richard Attenborough said that Gandhi simply asked that we should examine the criteria by which we solve our problems. That surely in the 20th century, we human beings could find other ways of ultimately solving our problems than blowing the other man's head off. He begged us to re-examine that criteria. He believed that we would not resort to violence. That the route that we would take in solving our problems would be a quite different one to the one that we accept now. He believe he had something to say to all of us everywhere in the world.
