The Viceroy House, directed by Gurinder Chadha, is a British-Indian historical drama with screenplay by Paul Mayeda Berges. It follows Lord Mountbatten’s last year as Viceroy of India, and the challenges he faced before the partition. The movie itself has been slammed for its inaccuracies, but the soundtrack has won a lot of praise.
