Style and Cinematography

Gandhi by Richard Attenborough is an epic film. At over three hours in length, the film encompasses all of Gandhi's life. Viewers discover that Gandhi was just a normal person who had big dreams. His first actions in South Africa set him on a path to change the world, including his own country of India.

The setting is superb in this film. Since the director is seeking to recreate history, he uses a set that makes viewers believe that they are really there in the action. The film never seems redundant, and every new place actually looks authentic.

Ben Kingsley helps bring the film together. Part Indian himself, he understands the lives of the people. He creates an authentic representation of Gandhi and truly brings the person to life in his portrayal.
