Viceroy’s House (2017, UK/India) 106 mins, Cert. 12A

Screenings at 2.30* & 7.30

  • The 2.30 screening will be subtitled for those with hearing loss
Director: Gurinder Chadha
Stars: Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Om Puri
Due to pressure of work this web-page is STILL a work in progress.  More content will be added in the next few days

The campaign for Indian independence culminated in a decision that the end of British rule would be accompanied by Partition – the separation of India and Pakistan.

The suddenness of this process would cause huge unrest and bloodshed, and while Viceroy Mountbatten (Bonneville) and his wife Edwina (Anderson) prepared for the transition, its impact was greatest among their staff, such as Jeet (Manish Dayal), a Hindu, and Aalia (Huma Qureshi), a Muslim.

Chadha (Bride and Prejudice, Bend It Like Beckham) brings her characteristic keen eye and storytelling flair to this vital episode from the recent past.

 

Here is a link to a Review in The Telegraph.  Further links will be added for those who want a deeper insight into the events underpinning this film.
