Searching for "Ghandi" under the default "all" search option brought up a single match: A fake actor profile from two spoof movies. Searching for "Ghandi" under "title" brought up a dozen partial matches before the actual movie (and only exact match not including a television miniseries episode) being 13th in the list.

Clearly there is some problem with the search engine -- possibly the same problem I reported a month ago and several months before that which were both replied to as being temporary self-resolving problems. Respectfully, a problem that persists for months is neither temporary nor self-resolving.

KADC: I agree that this is a problem. While "Ghandi" is a misspelling of the film title "Gandhi", it's a very common misspelling, and the search engine needs to account for that.

I find it surprising that the search engine ranks the following titles ahead of "Gandhi" when one searches for "Ghandi":

August: Osage County
Hard Candy
Jack the Giant Slayer
The Right Kind of Wrong
It's Kind of a Funny Story

Whoops. Colour me embarrassed. ...and I didn't even notice my error when I finally found the right result.
