Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson star as Lord and Lady Mountbatten alongside Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi and Michael Gambon in Gurinder Chadha’s sumptuous historical drama that tells the incredible true story of the final months of British rule in India. Charged with handing India back to its people, the Mountbattens lived upstairs at Viceroy’s House, where the political elite wrangled over the birth of independent India. Downstairs, among the 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants, the social impact of this divide is reflected through the eyes of a pair of young lovers whose sweeping romance is forbidden.
