★★★★ “… smart, spellbinding and achingly relatable.”
Believing that his life is coming to an end, 77 year-old Daya decides that he must travel to the Indian holy city of Varanasi so that he may attain salvation before dying. His overworked son Rajiv reluctantly accompanies him. Hotel Salvation is a charming comedy-drama about death that, at its heart, is a delightful, poignant celebration of life.

“An enjoyable, thoughtful comedy about dying, freedom and family ties.”
The Hollywood Reporter
“The film’s appeal is, like an arthouse take on the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, that it treats aging and death with sympathy and dignity, shot through with eccentric humour.”
