Gandhi The Conspiracy is a conspiracy theory period movie based on true events, that led to the eventual assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. The movie demonstrates a violent India, at the backdrop of a non- violent Gandhi, and hard-line fanatic mind-sets beginning to grow roots in an India divided on the basis of religion. The feature is a story of three 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.
Gandhi The Conspiracy is a movie based on real events that shaped India as a secular, democratic country and paved the way for the world’s largest democracy, as it struggled and survived through it’s formative days immediately after independence from The British Empire. The movie draws an interesting parallel between India during the life & assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, and USA during the life & assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and how their eventual assassination, though a tragic event in itself, virtually turned around the two countries to be successful secular democracies, from the separatist and civil warpath that both were trudging on.
