Wednesday 03rd October 2018 02:37 EDT

Coinciding with Gandhi Jayanti, on October 2, Dubai-based Nugen Media has released the trailer of 'The Gandhi Murder', a full-length feature film that will question the history and truth behind Mahatma Gandhi's death. 71 years after his tragic murder at the hands of Hindu right-wing nationalist Nathuram Godse, the movie digs deeper into the political events leading to the murder that changed the future of Independent India.

A period movie based on true events that led to the eventual assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, the movie demonstrates a violent India, against the backdrop of a non-violent Gandhi, and hard-line fanatic mindsets beginning to grow roots in a country divided on the basis of religion. It will unravel facts that will prompt questions on the history we have all come to know. 'The Gandhi Murder' follows three senior police officers in different parts of India, who were well aware of the intelligence that Gandhi's life is under threat, must take key decisions that would eventually either save the Mahatma, or the country.

Featuring Om Puri in his final on-screen role before his death in 2017, American actor Stephen Lang, and British actors Luke Pasqualino and Vinnie Jones, the film is set to rock the very foundation of Indian history.
