Viceroy's House

Cinema

This highly anticipated film from Gurinder Chadha is a personal piece set during the Partition of India in 1947, starring Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson.

It’s 1947 and British colonial rule in India is coming to an end. Queen Victoria’s great-grandson Lord Mountbatten moves with his wife and daughter for six months into the Viceroy’s House in Delhi. As the last viceroy it’s his task to oversee the country’s transition to independence.

Soon, violence erupts between Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs, which also affects the 500 staff working at the viceroy’s palace. The love between Jeet, a young Hindu servant, and Aalia, a Muslim woman working at the palace, is in danger of being engulfed by the tumultuous events and their own conflicts with their respective religious communities. When the situation escalates they are forced to make a momentous decision.
