Viceroy’s House (PG) The mo­men­tous events of 1946-47 that in­volved the par­ti­tion of In­dia and the de­par­ture of the Bri­tish from the sub­con­ti­nent are the fo­cus of a beau­ti­ful new film by Gurinder Chadha. She con­cen­trates mainly on the ef­forts of In­dia’s last Viceroy, Lord Louis Mount­bat­ten (Hugh Bon­neville), un­cle of Prince Philip, to find com­mon ground be­tween the op­pos­ing in­ter­ests of Jawa­har­lal Nehru (Tan­veer Ghani), leader of the Congress party, and Mo­hammed Ali Jin­nah (Den­zil Smith), the Mus­lim leader, who de­manded the es­tab­lish­ment of Pak­istan as an in­de­pen­dent state for the sub­con­ti­nent’s Mus­lim pop­u­la­tion.
