Gandhi My Father - Movie Review

Apun Ka Choice: Gandhi My Father is a hard-hitting film that tells a sad and tragic story. The film is a piece of quality cinema.

Gandhi My Father is like a boring history lesson.

Gandhi My Father is much more than a movie. It's a moving story, told about the father of our nation and his eldest soni, it's also a lesson in history, and the art of making period films.

Hindustan Times:
Gandhi My Father is cinema of A-class quality.

A landmark film in all respects, highlighting a scene or two would be doing gross injustice to the film. For, every sequence has the power to keep you hooked and most importantly, carries the stamp of a genius.

Movie Talkies: It is a very sincere attempt to tell a story of a father and son caught in web of history. Every minute detail has been carefully looked into, thus giving it a very authentic look and feel, beginning with the sepia-tinted documentary footage.

Now Running:
Gandhi My Father is a heart-wrenching tragedy about the Gandhi family- it is a story that needed to be told and deserves to be seen and heard.

The film is worth a watch for its brave attempt to paint another picture of the Mahatma, not found in our history books.

Times Of India:
Gandhi, as an individual may have been long gone, but the idea of Gandhi not only lives on forever, it grows stronger with each passing generation. An interesting debut for Anil Kapoor as producer and Feroz Khan as director.
