Naye mulkh kabhi aman mein paida nahi hote.
Gurinder Chadha, director of movies like Bend It Like Beckham and Bride And Prejudice is back with another a historical drama titled Partition: 1947. Also known as Viceroy’s House, the movie is an attempt to narrate the story of the Partition.
The trailer takes off from the point of Lord Mountbatten being in chair as the last Viceroy of colonized India. The movie portrays the romantic tale of Jeet, a Hindu manservant and Aalia, a Muslim assistant for Mountbatten’s daughter in the backdrop of the partition.
The movie is based on “hidden facts” of Indian history and acts as an alternate historical account of the Partition. Chadha believes that there are many layers to the partition of India and Pakistan and that the movie will attempt to “unmask the conspiracy in Indian history.” She also argues that the partition was not the result of infighting rather, it was a full fledged calculated political move.
Huma Qureshi plays the role of Aalia in the historical drama. The movie will also see late veteran actor Om Puri portraying the character of a blind man. Apart from Puri and Qureshi, Partition: 1947 is an international project that stars Downtown Abbey actor Hugh Bonneville as Lord Mountbatten and Gillian Anderson as his wife. Manish Dayal will be playing the character of Huma’s love interest in the movie.
The movie captures the transition Lord Mountbatten had to face of British India to independence and his confrontation with conflict as the sides clash in the face of monumental change. Partition: 1947 is all set to release on 18th August, 2017.
