Hotel SalvationHotel Salvation (2016; Hindi)

Dir: Shubhashish Bhutiani 1hr 42mins. Colour PG

A 77 year-old father decides to end his days in the holy city of Varanasi and attain salvation, with his son accompanying him. This beautifully rendered film, the debut of young director Shubhashish Bhutiani, enacts a subtle family comedy-drama that anyone who has spent time with an ageing parent could relate to easily. A gentle charmer of a film – life, death and marijuana-laced lassis in a trippy Indian arthouse flick! (BFI; Guardian)
