Synopsis: Spanning decades and generations, celebrated Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta's (Earth, Fire, Water) highly anticipated adaptation of Salman Rushdie's Booker Prize®–winning novel is an engrossing allegorical fantasy in which children born on the cusp of India's Independence from Britain are endowed with strange, magical abilities. Midnight’s Children follows the destinies of a pair of children born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the very moment that India claimed its independence from Great Britain — a coincidence of profound consequence for both. "Handcuffed to history," and switched at birth by a nurse in a Bombay hospital, Saleem Sinai (Satya Bhabha), the son of a poor single mother, and Shiva (Siddharth), scion of a wealthy family, are condemned to live out the fate intended for the other. Imbued with mysterious telepathic powers, their lives become strangely intertwined and inextricably linked to their country’s careening journey through the tumultuous twentieth century. Salman Rushdie has written the screenplay, voiced the narration and executive produced Mehta’s adaption of his 1981 Booker-winning novel, which has become a beloved, contemporary classic. Featuring some of the most respected Bollywood acting talent, director, Deepa Mehta, has cast the legendary Shabana Azmi and Anupam Kher alongside Merchant Ivory stalwart, Charles Dance and a highly respected range of Indian acting talent.
