Hotel Salvation

Dir. Shubhashish Bhutiani. India, 2016. 1h 42m. Hindi/subs. Starring Adil Hussain, Lalit Behl, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Palomi Ghosh, Navnindra Behl, Anil K. Rastogi.

A gentle Indian comedy about a 77-year-old man who decides to end his days in the holy city of Varanasi, and the reluctant son he persuades to take him there. A tender intergenerational tale of hope and humour from first time director Bhutiani.

'The film has feeling, warmth, wisdom and locations gorgeous with history.' ★★★★★ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

'This beautifully rendered Indian arthouse film enacts a subtle family comedy-drama that anyone who has spent time with an ageing parent could relate to easily.' ★★★★ Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
