About Midnight's Children

Historical epic with a touch of magic realism based on the book by controversial author Salman Rushdie. Saleem Sinai (Satya Bhabha) is born at midnight on August 15th, 1947, at the exact moment that India officially proclaims independence from Britain. Shiva (Saddarth), another child born at the same time to much wealthier parents, is switched with Saleem and from that time their destinies are inextricably linked. Saleem later learns that he, along with other 'midnight children,' was born with special powers. As his family endure the various wars that ravage the subcontinent, Saleem embarks on a life-long journey to unite the others like him, a journey that takes him to war zones and cricket pitches and introduces him to love and sorrow.
