Viceroy's House

Gurinder Chadha co-writes and directs this absorbing personal-political drama about the damage caused by partition. Warm-hearted, witty and accessible, it features a stellar UK cast including Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon and Tanveer Ghani. With lavish cinematography from the UK’s Ben Smithard.





In 1947, British statesman Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) and his wife, Edwina (Gillian Anderson), arrive in Delhi to oversee the transfer of power from British rule to an independent India. A compelling exploration of India’s partition and the creation of Pakistan.
