Viceoroy's house- Movie

This movie is about India's partition from Viceroy's house perspective.
I always saw movies from agitator's perspective but, from the person who works closely with British people during partition is interesting.

Not sure about the facts but, it's interesting to know that Mountbatten was made as victim to the partition. Though Winston Churchill drew a line in 1945 dividing India and Pakistan , Mountbatten was made as the architect of the whole partition.

Gurinder Chadha directed very well and glad to see Om Puri in the movie. Wonder what took the crew to release the movie very late even after the movie was done long time back. Background score is soothing and enhanced the movie a lot. I loved the movie.
