Hindi movie “Gandhigiri” starring Om Puri, Sanjay Mishra, Brijesh Karniwal, Mukesh Tiwar and others hit the screens in India on Friday, October 14, 2016.
The film, directed by Sanoj Mishra and produced by Aagman Films, tries to answer questions like the importance of Gandhiji’s values in the corrupt world today.
The fiction movie is the story of Rai Saheb, an NRI who returns to India. Rai Saheb is a strong believer of principles given by Gandhiji. Rai Saheb’s father was closely associated with Gandhiji and played an active role in the freedom movement.
In India, Rai Saheb meets four different people who have taken wrong paths due to various circumstances.

The movie is well-crafted to show that even today Gandhi’s values remain meaningful and if implemented in day-to-day life can bring peace.
