Viceroy's House (12)

Director Gurinder Chadha. Drama/History

Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people. The film’s story unfolds within that great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day. ""Excellent film - broad sweep of History, mixed with a human interest. The Audience sat in silence at the end as they watched the credits roll""

Starring Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A very thought provoking film which had the audience enthralled.

Excellent film enjoyed by everyone

The pace of the first half seemed more like a documentary. The second half was more dramatic. Slightly disappointing overall
