Midnight's Children

Now Playing Synopsis: Filmmaker Deepa Mehta adapts author Salman Rushdie's Booker Prize-winning novel about the mysterious connection between two boys who were born at the moment India declared independence from Great Britain. Midnight: August 15, 1947. An impoverished Hindu woman gives birth to a son named Saleem in the same Bombay hospital where a Muslim child named Shiva is born to a wealthy couple. When a nurse at the hospital purposefully switches the children, their intertwining fates are forever sealed. Years later, Saleem discovers that he and the rest of the children born on that historic night have telepathic abilities that permit them to communicate with one another on a psychic level. When Saleem uses his powers to call the so-called "Midnight's Children" together, their country enters a tumultuous new era that will forever change the world as they once knew it. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Satya Bhabha, Shahana Goswami, Rajat Kapoor, Seema Biswas, Shriya Saran, Siddharth, Ronit Roy, Rahul Bose, Charles Dance, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Anupam Kher Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
