Good film - but a serious distortion of history...

The film is beautifully acted and a good sub-plot revolving around staff in the viceroy's house.

However, the central conceit of the movie is complete rubbish (plot spoiler averted)...The film, unwittingly or deliberately, robs the Indians and Pakistanis of any agency in their own fate when, in fact, I-Congress and Jinnah made nearly all the running on what happened at partition. The potential for terrible violence between the two main religious communities was always present in India and not a cunning ruse by the imperial government or the Mughals before them. Less painful to blame third parties...

Anyway, the history aside this is a very well put together movie. It would have got 9 stars if it had not played so fast and loose with the truth, which matters if we are to deal with the hurts of the world.

What a carve up

Viceroy's House lays bare the British tradition of divide and rule. Churchill no lover of all things Indian had planned the break up of India before Lord Mountbatten even set foot in India.

Gurinder Chadha's film looks sumptuous but the script is rather clunky, the characters thinly sketched and people prone to violence at the drop of a hat which sort of confirms Churchill's bigoted views of Indians. You see important white characters being threatened or spat on by lowly servants. If this indeed took place, the servants would had been beaten to a pulp and imprisoned or worse just shot dead.

Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonnerville) appointed as the last Viceroy of India is seen as more honourable and well intentioned in this film. His progressive wife, Lady Edwina Mountbatten (Gillian Anderson) is seen as trying to relieve the misery caused by the break up of the country which swelled the refugee crisis.

If I wanted to see a better film that covers the subject matter, I might as well watch Richard Attenborough's Gandhi. This film is rather lumbering but there is some tenderness with the love subplot. Om Puri playing a blind father unable to sense the romance that has developed between his Muslim daughter and Hindu neighbour, both of whom work at Viceroy's House.

A history lesson but a good one

A history lesson but a good one. Gurinder Chada's "Viceroy's House" is about the British withdrawl from India and the eventual partition of the country and it's a highly intelligent picture, full of good talk. In order to sell it to a wider market there's a 'Romeo and Juliet' style love story between two young Indians that makes up a fairly substantial subplot though it is the divisions that exist between the Hindu and Muslim staff that provides the film's real interest.

Cast as Viceroy Lord Mountbatten, Hugh Bonneville brings more than a touch of Downton Abbey to the Viceroy's House though Gillian Anderson is outstanding as Lady Edwina while the entire supporting cast deserve kudos. Hardly likely to set the multiplexes alight on a Saturday night this is still well worth seeking out.
