On August 15, 1947, India won its Independence from British Rule. Almost six months later, Mahatma Gandhi, the man who successfully led the struggle for Independence and a hero to millions across the world, was assassinated. How did Gandhi die and who killed him? These questions have never been adequately answered when looking at the life, legacy and biography of Mahatma Gandhi. Who Killed Gandhi? is the definitive inquiry into a deeply entrenched conspiracy that has remained only a footnote in history. It looks closely at assassin Nathuram Vinayak Godse, his mentor Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, and how a man considered by many to be a saint and the father of modern India was murdered.
Narrated by Canadian Gordon Pinsent, this investigative documentary weaves together rare film, audio and photographic archives and gives unprecedented access to the family of Mahatma Gandhi, gun man Godse, and his guru Savarkar. Director Anand Ramayya reveals an epic battle of clashing ideologies set in a formative era that would define the world we live in today.
