Although seemingly in rude health, curmudgeonly patriarch Daya has decided that his time is up! He demands that his son Rajiv take him to end his days in the holy city of Varanasi, where he he hopes to attain salvation. This is hardly convenient for Rajiv, a hard working accountant, already juggling a demanding job and a complicated family life. However, he feels he has no choice but to comply with his father’s wishes.At Varanasi they check into the rather dubious Hotel Salvation, where guests should have the decency to die within 15 days! Failing to do this, they must re-register under a different name! Despite initial difficulties, the time spent in the hotel proves to be positive and life-affirming for father and son alike. Imbued with a delightfully wry sense of humour,”Hotel Salvation” is a touching meditation on the mysteries of life and death.
