I have seen the movie and while the sceneries were absolutely breathtaking, with great eye for detail, the title was misleading. Yes, Louis and Edwina Mountbatten were major characters but there were four storylines:

1
that of the last Viceroy and his family,

2
that of the Household,

3
that of an Islamic valet of the Viceroy falling in love with a Hindu companion to Lady Pamela (showing divisions in the Household)

4
That of the politicians (the British and Nehru, Jinnah, Gandhi, etc.)

The Viceroy himself, Lady Edwina and their daughter Lady Pamela were not the Leitmotiv of the film, let me say. But all by all a fascinating movie about the Partition of British India. Especially Lady Edwina made a strong impression, being more or less a wise counsel to Lord Louis, in this narrative that was.
