||A bunch of British pensioners arrive at the Best Marigold Hotel in Jaipur, for their own reasons, but mainly because they think retiring to it will be cheap. But it is not quite as described and could either be fixed up or pulled down. The guest become involved with it, its fate and each other.
||Lots of Indian scenery and atmosphere and some laughs and emotion due to the dramas which unfold.
||Inoffensive and enjoyable, but maybe just a bit more fun if you have been to India, or seen Slumdog Millionaire.
