Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the
home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to
an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen
Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back
to its people.
The film’s story unfolds within that great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten
together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim
and Sikh servants. As the political elite; Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi, converged
on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted.
A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland:
Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day. A
personal film about a political tragedy that tore families apart.
