  Hotel Salvation on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Because it's Indian
  Hotel Salvation, the award-winning first feature from up-and-coming young director Shubhashish Bhutiani, is a charming, life-affirming drama set in contemporary India that tackles serious matters with a light and often joyous touch. After a UK theatrical release last August to much critical acclaim, Hotel Salvation will be released on both Blu-ray and DVD formats by the BFI on 26 February. Numerous extras include Shubhashish's film Kush (2013) which was shortlisted for Best Live Action Short in the 2014 Academy Awards.

This gently humorous film follows Rajiv, an overworked middle-aged son who is forced to accompany his 77-year-old father, Daya, as he seeks salvation in the holy city of Varanasi. The simple pleasures of this timeless place are explored as the pair belatedly come to know each other in the enforced intimacy of their cramped hotel room and the teaming streets.

Renowned actors Adil Hussain (Life of Pi), Lalit Behl (Titli) and Geetanjali Kulkarni (Court) lead an outstanding cast. While rooted in Indian values and culture, Hotel Salvation transcends borders with its themes of family ties, intergenerational relationships and the quest for contentment in later life. Try the trailer at the link.
