Viceroys House 2017
The whole of the sub-continent waits to see how Mountbatten will manage the transition. And through the five hundred or so household staff, a mix of Hindu, Muslim and Sikh, we see the tensions that threaten to wrench the country apart played out on a small scale. On the front line is Jeet, who is reunited with the Muslim girl he fell in love with two years previously. Aalia (Huma Qureshi), who also works closely with the Mountbatten family, is torn between her love for Jeet and her sense of duty to her blind father (the late Om Puri).
Viceroys House 2017
In 1947, Lord Mountbatten assumes the post of last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people, living upstairs at the house which was the home of British rulers, whilst 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants lived downstairs.
Queen Victoria was the first British monarch to be titled as Empress of India. In Victoria and Abdul, she develops a friendly relationship with a young man sent from India to serve in the royal household.
LESSON #1: LEARN THE HOST CULTURE-- Thanks in part to assertive performances from Bonneville and Anderson, the charming and empathetic Mountbattens, as foreigners, create a connective and inspiring awareness and interested benevolence towards the indigenous people facing a crossroads. No only did they respect the help and treat others within the house with due respect regardless of their demographic or spiritual background, they put in the tireless humanitarian effort and assumed their own personal risks to understand and assuage the ongoing conflict in India. Other leaders would have stayed above the fray with dismissive privilege.
