18 February 2017 4:02 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The film tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India and its release will coincide with the 70th Anniversary of the Independence of India and the founding of Pakistan.

The film is accompanied by a beautiful and moving score, composed by Oscar and Grammy winning maestro A.R. Rahman. Speaking in a recent interview, Rahman references Viceroy’s House:

“Gurinder’s expectation was to have something very classic, very rooted and at the same time universal. I’ve used the sarangi, a strings and brass orchestra, a lot of flute — mainly classical instruments.”

The official soundtrack for Viceroy’s House coincides its release with the film and will be available to buy on all digital outlets on Friday 3rd March. The album »

Viceroy’s House Movie Review

16 February 2017 2:17 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

There are some films that you see and you instantly know what you want to say about it, how you want to say it and exactly what you think.  Then there are the types of films that make you think. You need to go away and understand what you saw and then write. The Viceroy’s House is one of those films.

A story about the transfer of power from Britain to India and the partition is something I think every South Asian with an Indian or Pakistani heritage is familiar with. It is a sensitive subject that has been presented many a times in the Indian film industry and is used even now as a main topic or an underlying backstory. The stories we are familiar with, are generally told from the South Asian perspective. Gurinder Chadha has turned the story around, and told it from the British point of view. »

Gurinder Chadha finds muse in Huma Qureshi

15 February 2017 6:14 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her Hollywood debut in 2004 with the film Bride and Prejudice, directed by the acclaimed Gurinder Chadha. The filmmaker will now be launching Huma Qureshi on an international platform, as she takes on a large-canvas film of epic proportion in her upcoming The Viceroy’s House.

While Gurinder Chadha has always been all praise for Aishwarya, referring to her as “a very sharp, intelligent woman who knows how to hold her own in a male-dominated industry” , the filmmaker has now found a favorite in Huma Qureshi, who makes her big Hollywood debut with The Viceroy’s House.

The film headlined by Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Huma Qureshi and Manish Dayal is all set to premiere at the Berlinale 2017. Huma is no stranger to international festivals and with Viceroy’s House becoming an official selection at Berlinale 2017, the film becomes her third to be screened on a global »

‘Viceroy’s House’ Review: India’s History With the British Gets a Bland Makeover — Berlinale 2017

14 February 2017 12:26 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

To its credit, “Viceroy’s House” does tell a gripping story about the Partition of India and the mass displacement that then followed. Full of harrowing details and unbelievable twists, the tale is then brought to a powerfully emotional close with the reveal that it is the story of director Gurinder Chadha’s own family.

To the film’s detriment, it only does so in its final 30 seconds, as a series of titles over black just before the credits roll. Unfortunately, there is nothing a fraction as engaging in the preceding 106 minutes.

“Viceroy’s House” gives away its intentions right there in the title. The film depicts those momentous events of 1947 – the year the British left India for good, though not before carving out chunks of India’s east and west to create the Dominion of Pakistan – from the limited vantage point of the Viceroy’s New Delhi residence, now known as the Rashtrapati Bhavan. »

Viceroy’s House: Two sides of the story emerge in these new character posters

14 February 2017 6:05 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Two new character posters have arrived for British drama, Viceroy’s House and we can’t help thinking they have a link to Valentine’s Day. With Gillian Anderson gazing lovingly at her Husband, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) on one side and the young lover’s, Jeet and Aalia cosying up to each other.

Related: Viceroy’s House Trailer and Poster

Viceroy’s House is set in a time where men were seen to rule their women and these posters depict this in a blatant manner with both Lord Mountbatten and Jeet in regal, honourable stances ever so slightly in front of the ladies. Even though fitting for the time, to portray this on promotional posters in the 21st century makes them feel dated. Oh and while we are here does anyone else, after watching our previous trailer post for Viceroy’s House, think Gillian Anderson has »

Viceroy’s House character posters featuring Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Manish Dayal and Huma Qureshi

14 February 2017 5:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a little over two weeks to go until its release, two new character posters have arrived online for Gurinder Chadha’s historical drama Viceroy’s House featuring Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson, and Manish Dayal and Huma Qureshi; take a look below…

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 (played by Hugh Bonneville), 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 (Gillian Anderson) and daughter (Lily Travers); 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, »

“Jolly Llb 2 Is Good…But Part 1 Was Better” – Subhash K Jha Review

13 February 2017 5:31 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Jolly LLB2

Starring Akshay Kumar, Sourabh Shukla, Annu Kapoor, Kumud Mishra, Hum Qureshi

Written & Directed by Subhash Kapoor

Rating: *** ½ (3 and a half stars)

Don’t get me wrong. I am a big Jolly fan. Whether played by Arshad Warsi or Akshay Kumar the small-town lawyer’s socio-political awakening is heartwarming, to say the least. While Jolly Llb 2 is suffused with a swarming all-pervasive social conscience that ribs our guilt-ridden middleclass values and elbows our cynicism and slothfulness out of our range of activity, it suffers from a sense of overweening ambition.

Everything here is much larger than Jolly Llb, the 2013 sleeper hit about a lazy lawyer played with judicious jocosity by Arshad Warsi who takes ona cause-celebre that turns him into a responsible citizen. Arshad’s Jolly made us cheer for his growth into conscientiousness.

Again this writer-director Subhash Kapoor has his heart and conscience in the right place. »

Berlinale: ‘Viceroy’s House’ Is Personal and Political Says Gurinder Chadha

13 February 2017 3:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Contemporary politics came to the fore once again at the Berlin Film Festival. This time it concerned “Viceroy’s House,” Gurinder Chadha’s period piece about turbulent events at the time that India separated from the British Empire.

While the end of end of empire is clearly large canvas stuff, Chadha chose not only to set the film in a microcosm – the ridiculously opulent palace inhabited by the Viceroy of India and 500 servants – she also pitched it as a personal project.

Chadha was born in East Africa of Punjabi parents and grew up in the U.K. where hostile locals told her to go home. “But my homeland was now in Pakistan,” she said. She refused to call it anything other than “pre-partition India,” until a research trip took her to the Punjab and her family’s ancestral home, where five refugee families had taken up residence.

Berlinale 2017: Viceroy’s House Review

12 February 2017 11:45 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Prior to the screening of Viceroy’s House, in London, before the film’s premiere at the Berlin film festival, director Gurinder Chadha introduced her latest endeavour, and she struggled to find the words, even pausing momentarily when overcome with emotion. As the film progresses it become clear why this was the case, as the talented filmmaker presents a distinctly personal tale, as one that delves into the series of events that went on to define who she is, and her identity.

Set in 1947, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) and his wife Edwina (Gillian Anderson) relocate to India, as the former becomes the nation’s very final Viceroy, tasked with ensuring a steady, comfortable progression to independence, away from the British ruling that has been in place for centuries. Any such transition is far from smooth however, as the country is heading dangerously close to a civil war, »

Viceroy’s House review [Berlinale]: Dir. Gurinder Chadha (2017)

12 February 2017 11:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Viceroy’s House review: Gurinder Chadha co-writes and directs this massively intimate and indeed epic story at the time of partition and independence in 1947 India.

Viceroy’s House review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival.

Viceroy’s House review

Bend It Like Beckham and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging director Gurinder Chadha brings Viceroy’s House, her most personal and ambitious project to cinema screens, a film debuting out-of-competition at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival, where it receives its world premiere.

The film is the true story of the 1947 handing over of power in India from the British Empire back to its people after three centuries of rule. Hugh Bonneville assumes the role of the last Viceroy of India, and indeed Queen Victoria’s great-grandson Lord Mountbatten, the man tasked with overseeing the transition. The motion picture, which is huge in scale, focusses its attention on the Partition of »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Viceroy’s House’

12 February 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To begin at the very end, the closing credits of “Viceroy’s House” bear a detailed dedication to a woman who survived the devastating upheaval of the 1947 Partition of India, was forced to trek a vast distance from her home to the newly founded Muslim republic of Pakistan, and was finally reunited with her eventual husband in a refugee camp. The woman in question, it turns out, is director Gurinder Chadha’s grandmother, and her story is evidently a remarkable one — so one can’t help but wish that Chadha had elected to tell it directly in this stiff historical dramatization of events leading to the Partition. Instead, “Viceroy’s House” clumsily merges a waxworks biographical study of Lord Louis and Lady Edwina Mountbatten, the last Viceroy and Vicereine appointed to oversee the British handover of India, with a passionless Romeo-and-Juliet romance between two of their servants caught in the fray. »
