It is always very difficult to review a movie that has a story that is so close to my heart. The original movie is VICEROY'S HOUSE and in that regard this movie is quite excellent. It has shown a rather different side of Viceroy Mountbatten and what had happened at the time of partition inside the Viceroy's House now our Rashtrapati Bhyawan. But this title PARTITION 1947 has made the film problematic. If you expect to see some kind of partition related big spectacle do not expect it here. All these things mostly are done by news reel footages. But the first half of the movie is really great. The ending and second half falters a bit. But as a whole this movie is a great experience that is excellently acted and directed with real heart.Last words it has shown a new theory, at least to me, behind the partition also.
