Huma Qureshi starrer ‘Partition 1947’ official trailer released. The trailer is quite intriguing.
The two-and-a-half minute trailer shows how Lord Mountbatten (played by Hugh Bonneville), the last Viceroy of India, has to oversee the transition of British India to independence. However, he is faced with a hurdle as clashes between Hindus and Muslims begin to rise and he is forced to divide the nation.
In the film, Huma Qureshi portrays the role of a Muslim woman, Aalia. She falls in love with a Hindu man, who works at the Viceroy’s House. However, they are separated as the borderlines are redrawn.
Partition 1947 stars Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi, Om Puri, Hugh Bonneville, Tanveer Ghani, Denzil Smith and Neeraj Kabi. This film will also see late veteran actor Om Puri in the role of a blind man.
