Filmmaker Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham, Bride & Prejudice) returns with the lavish, sweeping historical epic Viceroy’s House. Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”) stars as Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy of India. Arriving at Delhi’s palatial Viceroy’s House in 1947 to oversee handing the country back to its people, he and his wife (Gillian Anderson) negotiate with Hindu, Sikh and Muslim leaders as conflict erupts and two nations are carved out of the subcontinent—a newly independent India and a new Muslim homeland of Pakistan—leading to the largest mass migration in human history. The drama examines these events through the prism of both the Mountbatten marriage and the romance between a young Hindu servant, Jeet, and his intended Muslim bride, Aalia. The young lovers find themselves caught up in the seismic end of Empire, in conflict with the Mountbattens and with their own communities, but never ever giving up hope. Also starring Michael Gambon, Om Puri, Manish Dayal and Huma Qureshi.
