Set in New Delhi in 1947, the film tells the story of Lord Louis Mountbatten's tenure as the last Viceroy of India. Newly appointed by Prime Minister Clement Atlee and accompanied by his liberal-minded wife, Edwina and eighteen-year-old daughter, Pamela, he is charged with the difficult task of overseeing the transition of British India to independence.
Conflict ensues as the different sides clash in the face of enormous change.
Meanwhile in the servants' quarters, a love story develops between Mountbatten's new manservant, Jeet, a Hindu and Aalia a beautiful young Muslim woman who is Lady Pamela's assistant. All characters find they have their obstacles to overcome, both on the geopolitical and personal level.
Stars: Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi and Michael Gambon.
