In "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," the low-budget movie from Fox Searchlight Pictures and Participant Media, seven middle-class British retirees decide to "outsource" their retirement to India.

Drawn by advertisements of the newly renovated Marigold Hotel, the retirees arrive in India to find a run-down dump far from the exotic and luxurious setting that they imagined.

The film, which opened in U.S. theaters Friday, was shot mainly in India in late 2010 with an all-star British cast including Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith and Graham Broadbent.

Photographs highlighting some of the Indian locations used in the movie went on display this week at an exhibition at the W Los Angeles hotel in Westwood. The photographs, taken in Jaipur and Udaipur, India, will be on display at the hotel through May 31.

Here's a look at some of the scenes:
