Evelyn, newly widowed, wants low-cost experience, Graham seeks a long-ago love, Douglas and Jean have lost their pension in a family investment, Muriel needs cheap hip surgery, Madge seeks a rich husband, and Norman is chasing women. India affects each in different ways, enchanting Douglas and Evelyn while driving Jean deeper into bitterness. Their host, young Sonny, has dreams but little cash or skill; he also has a girlfriend whom his mother dismisses. Stories cross and discoveries await each one.
Plot: British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways as the residents find new purpose in their old age.

This is an excellent movie with a great cast. Before seeing the movie I saw one review categorizing it as having Benny Hill style comedy. I did _NOT_ see that at all in this movie. In fact, one criticism that I have is that I’d liked to have seen a little more comedy. One of the characters is truly over the top, but not slapstick. But regardless this movie flows elegantly start to finish without being overly saccharine or morbid or falling back on what you might expect for comedy involving the elderly. This film won’t move you like Slumdog Millionaire but it is a quality film in its own right.
This is easily one of the best films I have ever watched. I cannot put it into words that will describe my feelings towards the film. From the very beginning to the very end, the characters were introduced excellently.
You feel a strong bond for each and every character. Every single one of them are so relatable, as if this was a reality show and not a film.
Especially in the days when most of the world continues to live repetitive lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people question the ordinary lives we all have. This film can be the one spark you need in your life to start over.
Would I watch this again? Absolutely! Would I make my friends watch it? Without a doubt!
Absolutely loved it!
Just got back from having seen this wonderful film at a packed cinema and I’m still smiling. It really is the most entertaining, colourful and uplifting film I’ve seen for a very long time. Apart from India itself – which is a star in its own right – it is the performances from this stellar cast that really make this movie. At times it was like an acting masterclass, but never at any time could you see the cogs turning. The central characters were all wholly believable, and to be honest I find it impossible to single anyone out, although if I had to, my vote would probably go to Bill Nighy. He is just superb as Douglas – the apologetic, hesitant, henpecked husband of the self centred, bitter, scolding Jean portrayed by Penelope Wilton, who is also excellent. There is one particular scene between the two, where Douglas, for once bites back – and the emotion from Nighy is just mesmerising to watch. When you add the likes of Dames Maggie Smith and Judy Dench to the mix, the delicious Celia Imrie, Tom Wilkinson and Ronald Pickup (with an honourable mention to the latter, who brought a wonderfully rakish comedic performance to the mix) – and you can’t go wrong.
The younger cast members and all the supporting players do an excellent job – but it is the oldies who steal the show. That doesn’t mean it’s an oldies film – far from it. I took my 16 year old daughter and she laughed, cried and loved it as much as I did.
Just not a very good movie
Amazing cast, quite a good story, fabulous scenery and setting, but a rubbish script, jokes as old as the cast, and characters as wooden as lots of wooden things in a wooden box. What a waste, as they had the opportunity to create something quite meaningful out of the lives of older people who are down but not out. All the back stories were weak and unbelievable, and the Maggie Smith character was by Les Dawson, out of Rose in Upstairs Downstairs!I’m not sure what they were attempting here, but the end result was trite and negated any idea that older people are interesting. Judi Dench was fabulous as usual, but had nothing to get her teeth into
