On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, we look at some of the memorable films portraying the father of our nation…

Films have often looked to larger than life historical figures for inspiration. And Gandhi, the man responsible for restoring the confidence of a young India and introducing the world to the concept of non-violence, has been essayed in films a number of times. From biographies on Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi that show the transformation in the life of a man from a simple student to a revolutionary on the path of non-violence to films that revolve around his life and draw conclusions based on what he taught, what he followed, what he believed in – so many forms of expression have tried to portray the freedom fighter as a more human figure than the larger than life legend that his life story has become.
