Filmgoers will also get the opportunity to interact with the director Shubhashish Bhutiani during Q&A sessions following the initial screenings

Dubai, 26 April 2017: Following its successful April launch with Ken Loach’s recent release ‘I, Daniel Blake’, the new independent cinema initiative, DIFF 365@VOX powered by du, presents the second contemporary film in its compelling year round line up, ‘Mukti Bhawan (Hotel Salvation)’.

‘Mukti Bhawan (Hotel Salvation), the debut feature from Indian filmmaker Shubhashish Bhutiani, promises to have audiences both laugh and cry with its gentle yet ever so charming tale of life and relationships. The film centres around 77-year-old Daya (Lalit Behl) who, after a dream, 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 traveling to Hotel Salvation, a place where the elderly spend their final days.

The director Shubhashish Bhutiani, will attend screenings of the film on on Thursday, May 4th and Friday, May 5th which will be followed by Q&A sessions. This is an unmissable opportunity for audiences to gain an insight into the making of the film, with an exclusive question and answer opportunity for audience members.

Exclusive to DIFF 365@VOX the Hindi comedy drama (with English subtitles) has received glowing reviews and impressive praise after screening at the Dubai International Film Festival as well as the Venice Film Festival. It won the annual Prix Enrico Fulchignoni, an award given by the International Council of Film and Television at Unesco to the Venice film that best represents the values of peace and human rights.

Hotel Salvation will run at the DIFF 365@VOX dedicated theatre (cinema 9) at VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates in Dubai starting from May 4th 2017. Tickets are available now online at the VOX website and at the box office at VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates.
