Details

A warm tale of life and relationships, embedded in Indian culture and Hindu rituals. Daya, a 77-year-old father, and Rajiv, his over-worked accountant son, journey to the eponymous Hotel Salvation in the awe-inspiring holy city of Varanasi. Rajiv struggles with anxieties about his responsibilities back home, while Daya (whose prophetic dream about his own death led them there) starts to bloom in the hotel as he befriends a delightful widow.

The simple pleasures of this timeless city are explored as father and son belatedly come to know each other in the enforced intimacy of their cramped hotel room and the teaming streets. With superb performances from renowned actors Adil Hussain (Life of Pi), Lalit Behl (Titli) and Geetanjali Kulkarni (Court), this gentle and tender multi award-winning film will make you laugh and cry.
