Viceroy's House | Ratings & Reviews

"Viceroy’s House is a costume drama, tragic history lesson, and star-crossed love story all rolled into one. It’s based on fascinating facts, with a top-notch cast (including Michael Gambon, Simon Callow and the late, great, Om Puri), lashings of lush scenery, impeccable suits, divine dresses, and sumptuous cinematography. But grand themes, sumptuous cinematography and good intentions do not necessarily an engaging movie make."

""Viceroy's House" clumsily merges a waxworks biographical study of Lord Louis and Lady Edwina Mountbatten ... with a passionless Romeo-and-Juliet romance between two of their servants caught in the fray."


"Clumsily fuses political drama with romantic melodrama."

Time OutTime Out

"Viceroy's House is no very profound work, but it is a nimble and watchable period drama."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"If you liked The Hundred Foot Journey then Viceroy's House is of a similar ilk, boasting high-profile actors whose characters deliver an underwhelming tale."


"There's a lovely mix of seriousness and dry British wit, and the settings and landscape are beautifully captured."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"A curious beast, and a not entirely successfully executed one."


"Too quaint, too polite, too focused on the light comedy rather than the terrifying drama."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Chadha has distilled a fascinating and epic true story into a starchy, stuffy, sanitised period piece that never fully engages on an emotional or educational level."
