Great movie, super acting, cinematography and story, anyone with a brain who likes history will love this, best film i have seen this year.

Enjoyable movie.

A very different perspective on the partition of India to the Gandhi film. There was no mention in it of Gandhi's assassination or Lady Mountbatten's affair with Nehru. I also did not know of Sir Winston Churchill's role in the partition plans.

A mostly accurate account of what occured in 1947, great acting by all and at times quite emotional to watch.

I wouldn't have wanted to play poker with Churchill. Fascinating account of the partition of India. Difficult to believe we are talking only 70 years ago.
