Partition involved the largest mass migration in human history, as 14 million people were displaced, and up to a million died as a result of sectarian violence, starvation and disease.
'By setting the entire film in Viceroy’s House in Delhi, [...] I was able to explore the multiple points of view of the protagonists, and grapple with the idea of partition without being overwhelmed by its tragedy. I do not believe that anyone but a British Indian – a product of Britain and India’s inextricable links – could truly inhabit these differing perspectives. I only hope that I do them justice' — Gurinder Chadha, Director
Featuring Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Simon Callow, and Om Puri
