Hotel Salvation

Dir: Shubhashish Bhutiani|India|2016|99 mins|12A | Hindi w/Eng subtitles

'An arthouse take on the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' (Screen International) Hotel Salvation is a story of equal parts wry wit and tenderness.

Winner of the UNESCO award at Venice Film Festival, young talent Shubhashish Bhutiani's debut feature Hotel Salvation is a charming drama about a father and son as they try to navigate through complexities of family life.

Following a prophetic dream, 77 year-old Daya (Lalit Behl) announces that his time has come and demands to travel to the sacred ghats of Varanasi to achieve salvation in his final days. His overworked son Rajiv (Adil Hussain) finds himself roped into accompanying him to Mukti Bhawan (Hotel Salvation) where Daya finds a new lease of life among the residents of this last stop hostel.

Released as part of the BFI's India on Film project.
