Nine Hours to Rama is 1963 CinemaScope British film, directed by Mark Robson, and based on a 1962 book by Stanley Wolpert of the same name. The film was written by Nelson Gidding and was filmed in England and parts of India. It stars Horst Buchholz, Diane Baker, Jose Ferrer, and Robert Morley.


The film is a fictional narrative set in the nine hours in the life of Nathuram Godse (Horst Buchholz) that lead up to his assassination of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (J.S. Casshyap). As he prepares for the shooting at Gandhi's residence, flashbacks recall Godse's troubled life of violence with Muslims, his problems with his family, and his involvement with two women (Valerie Gearon and Diane Baker). Meanwhile, one Officer Das (Jose Ferrer) is attempting to find the killer before it is too late.[3]
