Hotel Salvation

Shubhashish Bhutiani

India, 2016, 102 minutes

Set in a Varanasi hotel where the faithful prepare to die, this Hindi comedy addresses issues of tradition and modernity, life and death, and family ties with gentle humor. An ominous dream has convinced 77-year-old Dayanand Kumar that the end of his life is drawing near. Although no one else in the family sees any reason for the healthy old man’s premonition, his middle-aged son, Rajiv, feels duty bound to set aside his job, leave behind his wife and daughter, and accompany his father to the holy city. Two weeks is the stipulated maximum stay at the dilapidated Hotel Salvation, but as the old man engages with the other guests it becomes clear that several of them have been there much longer. As the days become weeks, Rajiv is forced to reckon with his father and the power of tradition as he never has before.—New Zealand International Film Festival
