Mahatma Gandhi is certainly the most well-liked personality in the history of India and his name has always been come first, whenever someone speaks about India's freedom and its struggle against British rule. As a true leader of India, Gandhi has forever been an important part of our Hindi movies. Thus on this auspicious day of Gandhi Jayanti (Birthday of Mahatma Gandhi - 02 Oct), we list down 5 films from Bollywood which are based on the life Gandhiji.

Gandhi (1982)

If any film which is based on Mahatma Gandhi is to be remembered, then how could one ever forget the all-time famous and the award winning Richard Attenborough's film Gandhi (1982). The list has to be start with this movie, which is although considered to be the as one of the finest biographical take on Mahatma Gandhi. Ironically it took a foreign filmmaker (Richard Attenborough) and a foreign actor Ben Kingsley to make this best movie on Indian independence and the Indian freedom fighter. Moreover, Ben Kingsley also went on to win an Oscar for this particular movie, where his performance as Mahatma Gandhi has been praised all over and is being believed to be the best till date.

Lage Raho Munnabhai (2006)

After Gandhi (1982), one can also never forget Rajkumar Hirani's take on Mahatma Gandhi, in the company of his most popular and entertaining movie 'Lage Raho Munnabhai'. In this movie, the role of Gandhiji was played by a well-known Marathi actor Dilip Prabhavalkar. This was the first movie that showed Gandhi in a modern background, and was not showcased in some story related to his freedom fight against British rule. The movie was very smartly showcased, with respect to Gandhiji's several teachings, and thus modified it to present in the contemporary world by introducing the perception of Gandhigiri.

Gandhi Se Mahatma Tak (1996)

Shyam Benegal's much loved actor Rajit Kapoor enacted the role of Gandhi in Benegal's bilingual biography which was titled as 'The Making of Mahatma' in English, and 'Gandhi Se Mahatma Tak' in Hindi. The movie had a quite dissimilar viewpoint on Gandhi as it presented the evolution of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi from being a lawyer in South Africa to eventually turning out to be a Mahatma. The film's title was therefore given as 'Gandhi Se Mahatma Tak'.

Hey Ram (2000)

Earlier Mohan Gokhale was signed for enacting the coveted role of Gandhi in Kamal Hassan's movie 'Hey Ram'. However sadly, because of his early demise, Kamal Hassan had to then choose for another actor to play the role of Mahatma Gandhi. Versatile actor Naseeruddin Shah was then chosen to enact the role of Gandhiji in the movie, and to be honest, he had carried out a fabulous job in it. To be precise and straightforward, he was in the midst of the first actors to present Gandhiji's Gujarati tone of voice and body language in an accurate manner.

Gandhi My father (2007)

The last Gandhi's character played on the screen until now was Darshan Zariwala, who played the role of Bapu in Anil Kapoor produced movie 'Gandhi My Father'. The movie had the most exceptional take on Gandhiji as it was focused more on his personal life, rather than the political one. It actually showed how in spite of being the 'Father of nation', Gandhiji couldn't be a good father to his son Harilal Gandhi. Though the movie received mixed responses from all over, but to some extent everybody liked Darshan's portrayal in 'Gandhi My Father'.
