Gandhi (1982) is an Anglo-Indian film, directed by Richard Attenborough, about the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (also known as Mahatma Gandhi, Great Soul), leader of the nonviolent resistance movement against British colonial rule in India during the first half of the 20th century. The film won eight Oscars in 1982, including the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Shooting began on November 26, 1980 and ended on May 10, 1981. The funeral sequence was filmed on January 31, 1981, coincidently 33 years after Gandhi's real funeral. Approximately 300,000 extras were used in that scene.

The film premiered in New Delhi on November 30, 1982. It was released in the United States on December 8, 1982.

Synopsis

The film begins with his assassination and funeral on January 30, 1948. The story then flashes back to 1893 with him being thrown off a train in South Africa for being a "kaffir" travelling in a first class compartment. The film goes on to chronicle his revolutionary and successful nonviolent resistance movement during his time as a lawyer in South Africa, where he becomes a hero amongst the Indian population. He then returns to his native India, where he leads the country over half a century to independence.
