Here is the first look at a new film focusing on events prior to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination.

The Gandhi Murder will question the history and truth, that billions of Indians across the world, believe about Mahatma Gandhi’s death. 

71 years after his tragic death at the hands of the Hindu right-wing nationalist, Nathuram Vinayak Godse, ‘The Gandhi Murder’ delves into the political events leading to the assassination that changed the future of Independent India. 

The period movie is based on true events that led to the eventual assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. 

The movie unravels facts that are bound to trigger the thought that what is conveyed by governments is seldom the full truth, and that politics define what history books write. 

That both the police and Indian politicians were well aware about the impending assassination, and even knew about the key planners, and yet did not act in time, demonstrates that the assassination was not an act of a single assassin, but a collective plan hatched within the corridors of power of the newly independent India.

The film follows three Senior police officers in different parts of India, who, well aware of the intelligence that Gandhi's life in under threat, must take key decisions that would eventually either save the Mahatma, or the country.

It stars Om Puri in his final on-screen role prior to his death in 2017, American actor Stephen Lang (Avatar, Salem, Into the Badlands) and British talents Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Musketeers, Our Girl) and Vinnie Jones (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, X-Men: The Last Stand).

The Gandhi Murder releases worldwide on 30 January 2019.
