MAHATMA – Life of Gandhi 1869-1948, part 4 of 14, The Great Trial, 1921-1928
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
Gandhi identified himself with the Indian masses, donned the loin-cloth and preached disaffection towards the unjust government. The film depicts his trial for sedition which was also a trial of strength between a tyrannical government and a conscientious non-violent rebel. Prison gates were widened. Visibly India had turned Gandhian.
