Arriving in sun-baked Jaipur, with only the hope to begin their life anew amidst their own personal baggage are: the bereaved and financially stranded Evelyn (Judi Dench), the disillusioned High Court Judge Graham (Tom Wilkinson), the quarrelsome couple Douglas and Jean (Bill Nighy and Penelope Wilton), the die-hard love seekers Norman (Ronald Pickup) and Madge (Celia Imrie), and Muriel (Maggie Smith) – who intends to have her hip replaced and immediately leave India for good. They are all at the mercy of the hotel’s ambitiously naïve young owner, Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel), who inherited the once sophisticated building from his father hoping to turn it into a high end luxury hotel. So far, he might only have chaos to offer, but what Sonny lacks in resources, he makes up for in enthusiasm.

Still, the new residents are aghast to find “improvements” to the property have stalled, leaving such amenities as water, electricity and phones iffy at best. They are equally disoriented by an India full of contrasts, at once intoxicating and frightening, traditional and modern, beautiful and strange. At first, these seven newcomers seem unsure about what the future might hold. However, as they begin to forge new friendships, they make some unexpected discoveries and start to let go of the past.
