Viceroy’s House: exclusive free screenings nationwide

Monday 13 February 2017 Film

We’ve teamed up with Pathe to give you a sneak peak of Viceroy’s House’ – the latest movie from acclaimed director Gurinder Chadha – for free, ahead of its nationwide cinema release!

Starring Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi and Michael Gambon, and set against an exotic Indian backdrop at the time of the Raj, the powerful new film Viceroy’s House tells the incredible true story of the final months of British rule in India.

A celebration of the resilience of the human spirit, the film’s release will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the independence of India and the founding of Pakistan.

The Viceroy’s House was the home of the British rulers of India. Charged with handing India back to its people, the Mountbattens lived upstairs, where the political elite wrangled over the birth of independent India. Downstairs, among the 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants, the social impact of this divide is reflected through the eyes of a pair of young lovers whose sweeping romance is forbidden.

NUS is giving away free tickets to twenty screenings across the country on Wednesday 22 February at 6.30pm.
