For the last few days in Global Studies, we have been watching the movie "Gandhi." As an Indian, You here a lot about Gandhi, however, he revered as a God, and you never learn about his life as a person, only his accomplishments as the leader of the Indian independence movement. Watching the movie gave me better perspective on the man himself, how his experiences affected his later actions, and it provides a humble portrayal with all of his strengths and his flaws. You learn how Gandhi, in South Africa, is shy and not very inspiring. But as the movie progresses it shows his growth as a leader, especially his orating skills. The movie shows not only Gandhi’s evolution as a leader, but it also shows the evolution of his ideas. When he first came back to India after a successful campaign for equal rights in South Africa, he hear tales of discrimination in India. His main goal at first was only to demand more rights from the British, but not complete independence. He slowly realizes that the only way for the Indians to be happy was to be self0governing. With this realization, he became the leader f the Indian independence movement. The movie presented the information in a way that was captivating, as well as eye-catching. The filmography was beautiful, and it portrayed India much like it portrayed Gandhi, in a respectful but honest way. Overall, I feel the movie gave a detailed, honest and insightful look in to Gandhi’s life.
