Mukti Bhawan (Hotel Salvation)
The debut feature from Indian filmmaker Shubhashish Bhutiani is a charmingly gentle drama about a father and son getting to know each other while also dealing with life's realities. After a dream, 77-year-old Daya (Lalit Behl) decides he needs to travel to the sacred ghats at Banaras before he dies, and recruits his son Rajiv (Adil Hussain) to accompany him. Their journey is laced with humour and pathos as the pair gradually make their peace while on their journey, eventually making their way to the Hotel Salvation, a place where the elderly spend their final days.
