The life of India's messianic spiritual leader and pacifist revolutionary is presented by director Dickie Attenborough as an old-fashioned, three-hour epic, with a compelling central performance by Ben Kingsley (supported by a cast of 400,000). It's a slow, reverential biopic, but it compensates for its sedate pace with a dry, gentle humour and a humanity that befits its extraordinary subject.
