Storyline

New Dehli in March 1947. The huge and stately Viceroy's Palace is like a beehive. Its five hundred employees are busy preparing the coming of Lord Louis Mountbatten, who has just been appointed new (and last) viceroy of India by prime minister Clement Attlee. Mountbatten, whose difficult task consists of overseeing the transition of British India to independence, arrives at the Palace, accompanied by Edwina, his liberal-minded wife and Pamela, his eighteen-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, in the staff quarters, a love story is born between Jeet, a Hindu, and Aalia, a Muslim beauty. Things will prove difficult - not to say very difficult - both on the geopolitical and personal level. Written by Guy Bellinger

Trivia

Goofs

Gillian Anderson is credited as Lady Edwina Mountbatten. However, this was never her name. She would only be known as Lady Edwina if her father had been an earl, marquess or duke. After her husband was knighted, she was Edwina, Lady Mountbatten or Lady Louis Mountbatten. After her husband was created a viscount and then earl, she was styled as Edwina Mountbatten, Viscountess Mountbatten of Burma and Edwina Mountbatten, Countess Mountbatten of Burma, respectively, or more commonly Lady Mountbatten.

Touches my heart
20 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Beautifully made movie with two main story lines: a political-world- line, and a very personal-love-line. Somehow it was so true about how life IS or CAN BE that it moved me and touched my heart deeply. Besides: Great actors (good casting!) and very beautifully spoken language. Whoever spoke was so good at it! (I'm into voices for my profession).The movie is a blueprint-story for all countries that have suffered and had profits from countries that were their 'masters'. It also shows that there are all sorts of 'masters'. Besides, that it's time to become brothers and sisters. the other storyline makes clear that LOVE can be something very special, especially when you live in between millions of countrymen and there's all kind of wars going on.The director points it out very clearly!!Good for her, because this could have ruined the movie, but it somehow didn't. GO!!
