Critic Rating – 3.0/5
A film has hit the theaters that covers a very big issue. Rajkumar Santoshi’s film ‘Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh’ (Gandhi Godse – Ek Yudh) connected with the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi has arrived. whose story begins with fiction. What if Mahatma Gandhi had survived? What would have happened… The makers have tried to show these possibilities. He begins the film with the assumption that Gandhiji may have been shot but survived. Now what they do…these things are highlighted. It shows how Mahatma Gandhi forgives Godse. He visits her in prison. Both argue on their own ideology. The story of the film has been framed keeping it in the center.
In ‘Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh’, Deepak Antani is playing the role of Gandhiji and Chinmay Mandlekar is playing the role of Godse. Rajkumar Santoshi has shown another side of Gandhi through his film. The film begins with the partition of India and Pakistan. There is pain of division in the country. ‘Gandhi Godse Ek Ward’ covers some important events, such as Gandhi’s fast unto death for Hindu-Muslim peace and the conditions for ending it. The Gandhi vs Godse debate has been going on since 1948. The film imagines Gandhi and Godse arguing face to face. These scenes are from prison.
Gandhi Godse – A war of words is being waged. Both talk about their ideology and work. But this play of words seems weak. The film also touches on social issues. When Gandhiji established Gram Swaraj. He starts a campaign in support of Dalits. Many events are depicted through the scene. It also tries to show how the changes were made with the emotions and narratives of the people at that time. Talking about the acting, Deepak Antani and Chinmay Mandlekar have played the role of Gandhi and Godse. Both do justice to these characters. His pronunciation is also convenient. Apart from this, Pawan Chopra, Babasaheb Ambedkar, Maulana Azad, Sardar Patel have all contributed to the film in the role of Jawaharlal Nehru.
Rajkumar Santoshi has directed ‘Gandhi Godse Ek Ward’. He makes a good grip on this drama, there are many ups and downs in direction. But the treatment of the film, the cinematography looks good. Many events during the partition are depicted as if they were relived. Asghar Wazahat’s dialogues are impressive. There are also mentions of Jaiprakash Narayan, Harilal (Hiralal) and Manilal Gandhi or other leaders of Godse. If we talk about music, A.R. Rahman has given. Both the songs Vaishnav Jana To… and Raghupathi Raghav set well in the film. Gandhi Godse – Ek Yudh is a must watch movie. If you finish the first part patiently then the second part will be fun.
