Shubhashish Bhutiani's award-winning Hotel Salvation has been acquired for the UK by BFI Distribution as a centrepiece of the BFI’s India on Film season. The film won the Prix Enrico Fulchignoni at last year’s Venice Film Festival, Best Film at the New York Indian Film Festival, and it is now a strong contender to be India’s Academy Award entry in 2018.
This gentle and tender Indian comedy follows the ordeal of an over-worked modern son forced to accompany his 77 year old father, who is in search of salvation, to the holy city of Varanasi. The film showcases bravura performances from renowned actors Adil Hussain (Life of Pi), Lalit Behl (Titli) and Geetanjali Kulkarni (Court). The film will receive its UK premiere at BFI Southbank in the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival (22 – 29 June) on 27 June.
