viceroy's house

For six months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten assumed the post of last Viceroy in Delhi. With British rule coming to an end after 300 years, Mountbatten was charged with handing India back to its people. Mountbatten and his family lived upstairs whilst 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants resided in the rest of the house. Meanwhile the political elite, Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi, converged on the house to wrangle over the birth of an independent India. The film frames this monumental moment in the country’s history through romance – that of Dickie and Edwina Mountbatten and young Hindu servant Jeet and his bride-to-be, Aalia.
