Recommended film of the week: Viceroy’s House (12A).

Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India and after 300 years...that rule was coming to an end.

For six months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville), great-grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people. The film’s story unfolds within that great house. Upstairs lived Mountbatten with his wife (Gillian Anderson) and daughter (Lily Travers); downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the house to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.

The Hunts Post has four pairs of tickets (two for Cineworld St Neots and two for Cineworld Huntingdon) to give away.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets, answer this question.

Who was Lord Mountbatten’s great-grandmother?

Send your answers to: The Hunts Post, 30 High Street, Huntingdon, PE29 3TB or email: competitions@huntspost.co.uk.

Deadline is March 21 and entries must include a postal address.
