While the world thinks of Gandhi as the sainted man in khadi loincloth leaning on a cane, there is another Gandhi - a painfully shy young man struggling to formulate his ideas, the man before he became the Mahatma. This is the Mohandas K. Gandhi documented in The Making of the Mahatma.

Réalisateur / Director: 

With his first four feature films Ankur (1973), Nishant (1975), Manthan (1976) and Bhumika (1977) Shyam Benegal created a new genre, which has now come to be called the «middle cinema», between art and mainstream.
