MAHATMA – Life of Gandhi 1869-1948, part 11 of 14, Hour Of Destiny, 1944-1946
Script, commentary and direction by Vithalbhai Jhaveri Produced by The Gandhi National Memorial Fund in cooperation with the Films Division of the Government of India in 1968
The atom bomb could not explode Gandhi's faith in non-violence which he considered to be the mightiest force in the world. The film narrates the story of the visit of the British Cabinet Mission to India for working out the details of the transfer of power. Just when Gandhi brought his people to the very gates of liberty, communal frenzy darkened the horizon. Gandhi's search of the divine in the maddened man is depicted with all its pathos and poignancy.
