Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the fifty-fifth Best Picture Winner: “GANDHI.”
“Gandhi” is the biographical drama that presents the major events in the life of Mohandas Gandhi, the beloved Indian leader who stood against British rule over his country. Dedicated to the concept of nonviolent resistance, Gandhi is initially dismissed by English officials, including the influential Lord Irwin, but eventually he and his cause become internationally renowned, and his gatherings of passive protest move India towards independence. Directed by Richard Attenborough, the film stars Ben Kingsley as Mohandas Gandhi, Rohini Hattangadi as Kasturba Gandhi, Roshan Seth as Pandit Nehru, Candice Bergen as Margaret Bourke-White, John Gielgud as Lord Irwin, and Martin Sheen as Walker.
