Foreign Film & Discussion Series

Gandhi, My Father

Join former Drexel Professor Ramesh Kajaria tomorrow afternoon on August 25th at 2:00 pm to watch and discuss this award-winning film from India.

In English & some Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali w/English subtitles, 2007. Not rated. Registration not required.

As a child, Harilal (Akshaye Khanna) grew up resenting his absent father, Mahatma Gandhi (Darshan Jariwala). As he grows to adulthood, he rebels, intentionally rejecting every tenet of his father’s philosophy, exploiting his family name to bilk the faithful and converting to Islam. Feroze Khan directs this searing drama based on a little-known aspect of Gandhi’s life, adapted from the book by Chandulal Dalal.
