Aroview: Another handsome chronicle of Britain's imperial history, this one depicting events of 1947, when Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy, was charged with handing India back to its people after three centuries of British rule. The long simmering Hindu-Muslim tensions lead to the partition of India and the creation of a new Muslim homeland - Pakistan.

4 stars (Very Good) Portrays one of the greatest & most heart-rending events in the 20thC, exposing the foolish deal that destroyed the lives of 15 m, incl. 2 m. dead (Wikipedia). Ongoing enmity today. Great direction & contemporary footage. A great vista of a vital event.~Sandy
