Salman Rushdie’s Booker winning novel Midnight's Children has been made into a film by Deepa Mehta and here is the first trailer.
Midnight's Children is an extraordinary tale of two boys born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, when the new independent India was born and Pakistan partitioned. One boy is born to a poor family and another to a rich one. However, the babies are switched by the hospital nurse.
Saleem Sinai, the illegitimate son of a poor woman, and Shiva, the offspring of a wealthy couple, are fated to live the destiny meant for each other. Their lives become mysteriously intertwined and are inextricably linked to India's whirlwind journey of triumphs and disasters.
From the unlikely romance of Saleem's grandparents to the birth of his own son, Midnight's Children is a journey at once sweeping in scope and yet intimate in tone. Hopeful, comic and magical -- the film conjures images and characters as rich and unforgettable as India herself.
