This dissertation focuses on "The Viceroy's House," a film that vividly depicts the historic partition of India and Pakistan. The film begins with the turbulent weeks leading up to Partition in 1947. Jeet (Manish Dayal), a devout young Hindu, arrives in Delhi on the same day as Lord Mountbatten and is hired as a valet trainee. Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville of Downton Abbey fame) comes to Delhi to take on the difficult task of turning over power to India's new leaders while also overseeing England's orderly exit from its 300-year rule.
India has three colors on its flag and each color describes how India is standing unbreakable even after so many years. The top band of India's national flag is saffron-colored, symbolizing the country's power and bravery. With Dharma Chakra, the white middle band represents harmony and reality. The last band, which is green in color, represents the land's fertility, prosperity, and auspiciousness. But is this interpretation relevant? In my opinion, India has lost its inner strength, prosperity, and fertility many years ago. The partition of 47 took everything from this holy land. At first, this land was divided into two countries in 1947 India and Pakistan, and then in 1971 Pakistan was divided into Pakistan and Bangladesh. Today every citizen of these three countries knows and believes that the partition did not just divide their home, it divided their soul and took their peace, their strength, and their fertility. But who was actually responsible for the 47 partitions? People come across various interpretations, some say it was the Muslims who did that, some say it was the Hindus who did that and some say only and only the British were responsible for this act .
Today, we all know about India's struggle during the partition, and no words can adequately describe it. All we can do is remember the brave martyr and pay tribute to them with what we have and our best efforts. And this movie serves the purpose transparently, as we witness the anguish of people being separated from their families, homes, and, above all, their countries. Many films and books depict the unforgettable 1947 split, but "The Viceroy's House" has an aura that conveys the genuine tale of the partition and how people tried to break their own country by obeying an outsider.

#BegumJaan is one traumatic history chapter which our text books forgot to teach us. Vidya B proves once again, without any doubt, that she's the JAAN of every film. With her around, the males do not matter. This film showcases partition like never before n how it impacted several lives. A brothel turns into a bloody battle ground n the whores turn into fearless warriors. The film clearly highlights that the position of ladies, in our society, has remained very much the same, whether in 1947 or in 2017. Rating 4/5. 2b1af7f3a8
