Partition: 1947 Review & Rating|
Partition: 1947 is a historical drama film directed by Gurinder Chadha who is an English filmmaker. The film stars Huma Qureshi, Om Puri, Arunoday Singh and Hugh Bonneville in lead roles among others and tells the story of the Partition of the Indian state into India and Pakistan.
The film seems repetitive and will remind you of the Sunny Deol film ‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’ at times. The actors do a good job of portraying the historical figures but their characters are lost as the director focuses the film on a love story.
A.R. Rahman’s music enhances the story at times but fails to provide anything to the director’s vision of the film. Gurinder Chadha tries to over simplify the planning that went into the partition of India and tries to show Lord Mountbatten in a positive light.
Overall, Partition: 1947 is a one sided vision of the director who tries to explain the complexities that went into the partition of our country in a little over 100 minutes. The film loses focus and gets into the love story which was not necessary to a topic like this where facts are meant to be accurate and to the point. The film fails to understand its core audience.
