LORD MOUNTBATTEN - THE LAST VICEROY 2 Vols. DVD
This excellent docudrama focuses on the formation of India's independence starring Nicol Williamson and Janet Suzman as Lord and Lady Mountbatten. Upon his arrival in India he serves as the go-between for the leaders of the Congress Party. The charismatic leaders India's Nehru and Jinnah who fought for the formation of Pakistan made Mountbatten walk a tightrope in securing peace to all sides of the conflict. But to no avail, civil disorder could not be stopped which led to the creation of Pakistan. Ian Richardson in the role of Nehru, adds a dimension to this historical drama that changed the Asian landscape. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
