Details

An ominous dream convinces 77-year-old Daya Kumar that his end could be near. He tells his son Rajiv, who feels compelled to take leave from his demanding job, drop everything and make the journey with his stubborn father to Mukti Bhawan, a guesthouse devoted to people about to die, in the holy city of Varanasi. As the days go by, Rajiv finds himself caught between his responsibilities to his father and to his boss, while Dayan starts to bloom in the hotel. A tender comedy full of emotional depth.

Preceded by Panorama of Calcutta from the River Ganges (1899, 1m30s), the earliest surviving film of India from the collection of the BFI National Archive.

£5.50 ticketsFri 25 Aug (13.15/15.45) 

The film's appeal is, like an arthouse take on the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, that it treats aging and death with sympathy and dignity, shot through with eccentric humour.
