Sarit Ray | Hindustan Times: 4/5 | 8/10
A brilliant tale of human life (and death). Mukti Bhawan is a heightened culmination of Benares, a last leap of faith for the unquestioning believer ... Full Review

Nihit Bhave | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
If in-your-face Bollywood blockbusters have bored you to death, Mukti Bhawan is your salvation ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A film to live and die by. Other than a few faultlines, this is a superb film that shows us how it is entirely possible to die, irradiated by life ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 4/5 | 8/10
Beautifully shot and although languidly paced, Bhutiani delivers an evocative drama that has surely got to be one the best films you’ll see this year ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 4.5/5 | 9/10
Adil Hussain's Film Is A Beautiful, Meditative Triumph. Somewhere in the middle of this beautiful, meditative film comes the greatest lesson of all: that a perfect, poetic goodbye doesn't have to wait for the end ... Full Review

Surabhi Redkar | Koimoi: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A Must Watch Film That Gives You A Life Lesson On Death Itself. Mukti Bhawan is filmmaking at its best. It is cinema that's stirring on so many levels and makes one introspect as well ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 4/5 | 8/10
Mukti Bhawan is a work of staggering depth and sublime vision, is as much about its characters embracing the inevitability of death as it is about their loved ones grappling with conflicting emotions ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | FirstPost: 4/5 | 8/10
A heartwarming tragicomic tale about life, death and reconciliation ... Full Review

Devarsi Ghosh | India Today: 3/5 | 6/10
A celebration of death and old age that works in parts. It tells us that a life well-lived, where one is loved and wanted, can be celebrated even after it is no more. Mukti need not be miserable ... Full Review

Rohit Bhatnagar | Deccan Chronicle: 3/5 | 6/10
An unusual journey to death. Watch Mukti Bhawan for its beautiful thought and outstanding performances but if a pot boiler is on your mind this weekend then happily skip this one. Not recommended to the masses ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 4.5/5 | 9/10
A Masterpiece That Embraces Life and Death. The subject and treatment might make those bred only on masala commercial films shift in their seats, but it still is a near perfect film ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Any film that can get you laughing about death deserves to be seen ... Full Review

David Parkinson | Empire Online: 4/5 | 8/10
But, ultimately, it's Hussain who most merits the audience's pity, as he returns to his stressful city existence without the father he so clearly adored and without seeming to have learnt anything about living well being key to the art of dying ... Full Review

Leslie Felperin | The Guardian: 4/5 | 8/10
Life, death and marijuana-laced lassis in trippy Indian arthouse flick ... Full Review

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

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 4/5 | 8/10
A rare, gentle, heartwarming gem on life, death and relationships. An extra for holding Indian values and traditions and exploring the philosophy of life and ageing with dignity ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | India Glitz: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Mukti Bhawan promises to lead you to the path of salvation but thanks to its slow narrative and repetitive scenes the movie ends up as a half road to salvation ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 5/5 | 10/10
A masterpiece that dares to smile at death. A well executed story ... Full Review

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 3/5 | 6/10
In spite of its beauty, this is a morbid film which depresses, to a much greater degree than it enlightens ... Full Review

R.M. Vijaykar | India West: 2/5 | 4/10
This one could have been a thought-inducing, genuinely funny masterpiece. But its makers decide to take what is now the standard easy way out, committing a sans-salvation suicide in global festival terrain! ... Full Review

Filipe Freitas | Always Good Movies: 3/5 | 6/10
Engaging in a different kind of tension, [Bhutiani] crafts a modest yet spiritually inspiring story ... Full Review

David Parkinson | Radio Times: 4/5 | 8/10
The father-son bond dominates this bittersweet tale, which is not only impeccably played by a fine cast, but also beautifully designed ... Full Review

Mark Kermode: - | 8/10
Quietly profound, very moving, very engaging and made me feel like I was in a kind of magical bubble and when cinema works at it best, that's what it does ... Full Review

An Indian comedy full of emotional depth and understated paradox ... Full Review

Wendy Ide | Screen International: - | 6/10
The filmmakers make the most of a tiny budget here ... Full Review

Lucy Popescu | CineVue: 4/5 | 8/10
Hotel Salvation is a bittersweet meditation on life, death and salvation ... Full Review

J Hurtado | ScreenAnarchy: - | 7/10
Hotel Salvation is a celebration of all the things we miss when we stop looking around at just how amazing life can be, and sometimes a reminder is all it takes to remember to smile ... Full Review

Tom Birchenough | The Arts Desk: 4/5 | 8/10
Hotel Salvation is a film of great tenderness, one that relishes the details of physical reality, even while acknowledging that leaving all behind is the most natural, even essential thing of all ... Full Review

Kevin Maher | Times (UK): 4/5 | 8/10
A dextrous Indian drama set in a hostel for the dying on the banks of the Ganges, replete with wry humour, cheeky visual gags and an obsession with the paradox of celebrating life on the edge of death ... Full Review

Linda Marric | HeyUGuys: 3/5 | 6/10
A wonderful look at how tradition can still hold values despite societal and technical advancements in a deeply spiritual country like India ... Full Review

This modest, melancholy affair unfolds with wry humour and a warm heart as the demanding father and his resentful son find peace, love and understanding ... Full Review
