Hotel Salvation (2016)
In this gentle charmer, a 77-year-old father decides to end his days in the holy city of Varanasi and attain salvation, with his son accompanying him. Their journey is a shining example of how humour, warmth and humanity triumph over pathos. The film won the UNESCO award at Venice and the Critics Award at Vesoul and showcases bravura performances from renowned actors Adil Hussain (Life of Pi), Lalit Behl (Titli) and Geetanjali Kulkarni (Court).
