Mahatma Gandhi Ben Kingsley Richard Attenborough South Africa Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi Academy Award Steve Jobs Best Picture Michael Phelps Navjot Singh Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston Anil Kapoor Walter White Academy Awards Hercule Poirot Annu Kapoor David Suchet
Was watching Poirot on Zee Studio HD and I thought this. The three best long portrayals of a male personality I've seen - perhaps they may classify as all-time best - are: David Suchet as Hercule Poirot, Ben Kingsley as Mahatma Gandhi and Bryan Cranston as Walter White [in Breaking Bad]. Suchet did it over 25 years, getting better along the way. Kingsley covered 25 years of the greatest modern politician in the movie Gandhi. Cranston did it over six compelling years in possibly the greatest American TV series ever. I don't recall comparable portrayals of one personality over a length of time in Indian acting. Hopefully, I'll be able to expand on this theme soon.
Dinesh Parikh SENSE OF PURPOSE : The most decorated olympic athlete ever with 16 Olympic medals is Michael Phelps. He says, "Keep your comments coming. Make me angry. It makes me perform better." He channelizes his anger to a 'sense of purpose'. Thrown out of his own company, Steve Jobs was a broken man. There was great anger simmering inside him for he believed injustice had happened to him. His comeback to Apple and the heights they achieved, after his re-instatement, is the stuff legends are made of. I believe his comeback is the greatest comeback ever in corporate history. He too channelized his anger to a 'sense of purpose'. My mind runs to the scene in Richard Attenborough's all time classic film 'Mahatma Gandhi' when Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was thrown out of the train in-spite of a valid ticket. As the camera panned Gandhi's face (deftly played by Ben Kingsley), I felt his anger. For a few moments I could feel that anger becoming mine too. I felt like getting up from my seat, punching that TC on ...

Must-see films on Mahatma Gandhi :- We list some of the movies that were about the man, revered in India as Father of the Nation, and also those that were not about him, but highlighted his philosophy: 'Gandhi' (1982) - Directed by Richard Attenborough, 'Gandhi' is one of the best movies on the Mahatma so far. Ben Kingsley essayed Mahatma Gandhi so convincingly that he walked away with the best actor award at the 55th Academy Awards for his role. The film's success can be measured from the fact that it won seven Oscars, including that for best director. 'The Making of the Mahatma' (1996) - Shyam Benegal, one of the best directors of Indian cinema, decided to adapt 'The Apprenticeship of a Mahatma', written by Fatima Meer, who also wrote the screenplay for the film. The movie recounts the 21 years that Mahatma Gandhi spent in South Africa. The director teamed up with talented actor Rajit Kapur, who played Gandhi with such élan that he won the National Film Award for best actor. 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' (200 ...

Gandhi has been an important part of Hindi films as well. On the eve of Gandhiji’s birthday, we list down some of the best Gandhiji portrayals on the Indian screen. The list has to start with Richard Attenborough’s film Gandhi (1982) which is by far considered to be the best biographical take on Mahatma Gandhi. Ironically it took a foreign filmmaker (Richard Attenborough) and a foreign actor Ben Kingsley to come up with the best film on Indian independence and the Indian freedom fighter. Ben Kingsley went on to win an Oscar for the film and his performance in Gandhi is considered to be the best till date. One of the most popular and entertaining Gandhiji played in recent times was by Marathi actor Dilip Prabhavalkar in Lagey Raho Munnabhai. This was the first film whic ...
Dedicated to the FATHER OF THE NATION:- Mahatma Gandhi is the most international of all Indian faces in the world of stamps. Besides India, 80 countries, from Antigua to Zambia, have issued some 250 stamps on the Mahatma. Outside India, it was the United States that became the first country to issue Gandhi stamps. On January 26, 1961, a set of two stamps was released as part of the Champions of Liberty Series. Congo followed in 1967. But it was the Gandhi Centenary in 1969 that saw a flurry of stamps being issued in honor of the Mahatma. Over 40 countries, including Great Britain, commemorated the centenary by issuing stamps. In London, the British government’s decision sparked off a debate in Parliament, with several MPs questioning the wisdom of philatelically honoring the man who caused the sun to set on the British Empire. But it was Gandhiji, who carried the day. Biman Mullick, a British citizen of Indian origin, designed the stamp of Gandhiji, which was instantly approved and issued. It was adjudg ...
