MAHATMA – Life of Gandhi 1869-1948, part 14 of 14, Martyrdom, 30 January 1948
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 epic life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was ended. The film tells the story of the tragic but glorious day of Gandhi's martyrdom in the cause of unity and love - a day that turned the nations of the world into one mourning family. He had said, "If I am to die by the bullet of a mad man, I must do so smiling." He bowed to his assassin and died with the name of God on his lips. He was the Victorious One in death as in life.
