Let's talk Ghandi
I had the occasion to watch this recently. It really has held up well.

Ben Kingsley does an excellent job with the title role, and the movie, while on the long side, mixes in some "action" type scenes with good character work and dialogue.

It definitely was worth a re-watch.

You should check out the all-female reboot by Paul Feig called Ariana Gandhi.

It's the tits.

Kingsley was born to play that role. He crushed it.

I prefer Nuclear Gandhi from the Civ series.

re: Let's talk Ghandi
I remember watching an expert on accents going over Kingsley's work in the movie and how he was able to evolve the accent depending on what stage of Gandhi's life they were shooting.

Gandhi didn't really start using that thick Indian accent until much later in his life, he started out with a rather posh British accent. Kingsley, to his credit, manages to capture that wonderfully.

This is a great movie. One of my favorites.

Opening the movie with the funeral scene and showing us all of the various actors that we would be exposed to throughout the movie was very smart.

The call sheet for the funeral scene. Look at those numbers.
