MOVIES NOW and MN+ to simulcast 'Gandhi' on 30th Jan
On the death anniversary of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, MOVIES NOW and MN+, will air Gandhi -- unarguably the most loved biopic on Bapu and a creative and emotional tour de force -- as a tribute to the great peace-loving leader of India’s struggle for independence.
The epic biopic, directed by Richard Attenborough, will be simulcast on MOVIES NOW and MN+ at 1 pm simultaneously on Saturday, the 30th of January. The movie will be aired again on MOVIES NOW at 11 pm on the same day.
Written by John Briley and produced and directed by Richard Attenborough, Gandhi features Ben Kingsley in the title role of Mahatma Gandhi, with Edward Fox as General Dyer, Saeed Jaffrey as Sardar Patel, Alyque Padamsee as Mohammed Ali Jinnah and Roshan Seth as Jawaharlal Nehru. The 1982 biopic dramatizes the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the leader of India's non-violent struggle for independence from the British, and also stars Amrish Puri as Khan, Candice Bergen as Margaret Bourke-White, John Gielgud as Lord Irwin and Martin Sheen as Walker, among others.
Gandhi is amongst the most awarded films, having won as many as eight Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Writing, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design and Best Film Editing, along with 10 Golden Globe awards, and several top creative and technical awards from some of the most reputed guilds and associations across the world.
Lovers of world class movies can look forward to a glorious treat of the best film making with the simulcast of ‘Gandhi’ on MOVIES NOW and MN+ at 1 pm simultaneously on Saturday, the 30th of January
