The Partition 1947 is a period drama with many sub plots, set in the era of pre-independent India. The stories revolve around the last Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, in the last days of British reign on India. Apparently, Lord Mountbatten was assigned by Queen Victoria to settle down the chaos caused by the friction in people belonging to many religions. British rule wished to change the conditions for the better before they handed over their charge to the newly formed democracy and this responsibility was helmed to Lord Louis Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville).
The film also follows the love story of Jeet (Manish Dayal) and Alia (Huma Qureshi), who met again in the Viceroy's house, which further rekindle their old flames of love which took place in the Lahore few years ago, when Jeet helped Aalia to meet and provide amenities to her then imprisoned blind father Rahim Noot (Om Puri). The love birds become the victims of the tumultuous impact of Indo-Pak partition!
