Shubhashish Bhutiani   India   2016   102 mins   PG   comedy  drama

When a nightmare convinces seventysomething Dayanand Kumar (Lalit Behl) he is about to die, his accountant son Rajiv (Adil Hussain) shelves his problems at home and work to join him on a trip to the holy Hindu city of Varanasi. The tranquil atmosphere soon has a restorative effect. And there’s nothing maudlin about Dayanand’s  odyssey, as he discovers life beside the Ganges to be very much to his liking, especially after he hooks up with a sprightly widow (played by his real-life wife, Navnindra Behl).

A leisurely, wise and ultimately affecting meditation on the benefits of letting go.
