The Times wrote, “If the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel had been remade by Ingmar Bergman it might have turned out a bit like this.”
An ominous dream convinces 77-year-old Dayanand Kumar that his end could be near. He takes the news to his son Rajiv, knowing he wants to breathe his last breath in the holy city of Varanasi and end the cycle of rebirth, by attaining salvation.
Being the dutiful son he is, Rajiv is left with no choice but to drop everything and make the journey with his stubborn father. Rajiv gives his father a shot at salvation but as family bonds are tested, he finds himself torn, not knowing what he must do to keep his life together.
Faced with his father’s bizarre demand to go and die in the holy city of Varanasi and attain salvation, a son is left with no choice but to embark on this journey. The film screens in Hindi with English subtitles.
