Gandhi My Father - A Must Watch
Jan 11, 2009 01:08 PMRead
I am a die hard fan of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi a.k.a. Mahatma Gandhi, whom we also know as father of the nation. I have seen Gandhi, which won 8 Oscar awards and have thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I knew that a play called Gandhi V/S Gandhi was made by Feroz Abbas Khan (but never got the chan...Read More

MAHATMA v/s GANDHI
Aug 09, 2007 11:51 AMRead
There are many movies made on the father of our nation, Mahatma Gandhi but they have all portrayed how Gandhi helped our nation in achieving independence. Here comes a movie, Gandhi My Father, which throws light on the personal life of Gandhiji and the relationship he shared with his son, Harila...Read More

Gandhi My Father – powerful, yet incomplete.
Apr 12, 2009 09:22 AMRead
Rarely in the history of Indian cinema do we touch upon such a sensitive topic! The failed relationship between a father and a son is poignant enough. But when it is about the Father of the Nation and his prodigal son – it wrings your heart and gives you an amazing insight into the burden of bei...Read More

"Gandhi, my Father" is a movie on Mahatma Gandhi shown from the point of view from how he was as a father especially to his son Harilal Gandhi.HariLal Gandhi skipped his education frequently due to Gandhiji's frequent tarvel to and fro from South Africa to India, then he was not interested i...Read More

This is the only choice today for those who love some good movies, as opposed to only light hearted fun. To each his own... But if you go in for some good stuff, do not miss this one.This is a thought-provoking, tightly woven story revolving around 3 characters- Mahatma Gandhi, Kasturba Gand...Read More

Who Am I?
Aug 19, 2007 06:53 PMRead
Finally a biopic of a faded person hidden behind the stupefying curse of an (in?)FAMOUS father.*The father of the nation! M K Gandhi.This name has been an aura and an enigma to those who have the distinct quality of a very logical and a practical brain! "I will pray to god to forgive him...Read More

Living in the shadow of Mahatma
Aug 18, 2007 05:11 PMRead
The story is not about Gandhi, or about the freedom struggle. The story is about Harilal Gandhi, Mahatma's son, fails to cope with his father's fame, peer pressure, and a turbulent life. Not a very smart businessman, Harilal dreams of becoming a lawyer, and thus attaining fame in a fashion simil...Read More

A film worth watching
Aug 16, 2007 06:33 AMRead
I saw Gandhi my Father awhile ago. I found the film good though I would say that it was a bit of a slow movie but I think that Feroz Abbas Khan and Anil Kapoor deserve  credit for attempting to make a film on a new subject, and making a movie about Gandhi's personal life. I think its interesting...Read More

Gandhi My Father“Gandhi se bada is duniya main kuch nahin hai”In the history of Hindi cinema it was for the first time that we came across such a heart-touching story based on father and son relationship. It defines the real characters of Gandhi’s own family, his principles, his beliefs ...Read More

The little boy lost.....
Aug 08, 2007 12:50 PMRead
There is an old poem by William Blake (1791) called “The Little Boy Lost”, that seems to describe the way Harilal Gandhi related to his awe-inspiring, larger than life father, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi…“Father! Father! Where are you going?O do not walk so fast.Speak, father, speak t...Read More

A poignant tale: Mahatma vs. Gandhi
Aug 07, 2007 02:04 PMRead
I, from the bottom of my heart, believe that this Bohn quote is only half true when it comes to Gandhi, My Father. I would do so much as to stand up and fight whosoever accuses Feroz Abbas Khan of pretension. He has made a bad movie, agreed.He has made a stupefying bore, agreed. At time the ...Read More

"One family's tragedy was the price of a nation's freedom".Reads the tagline that is moving and so is the plot. The circumstances are acute and touch anyone’s sensitive nerves, but the treatment is not upto the plot which had such tremendous potential.A forcibly done cinematic adaptation of ...Read More

If you had any expectations from this movie forget them and just watch richard attenboroughs version of gandhi again  , as mr .kapoor and feroz abbas khan are entirely lost as how to interpret one of the few non-controversial figures from indian sub-continent .The movie kicks off with a dyin...Read More
