“A wistful, elegant love story played out across the streets of Mumbai, The Lunchbox is an unexpectedly aromatic charmer from first-time film-maker Ritesh Batra.”—ScreenDaily
Winner of the critic’s week viewer’s choice award at Cannes. A mistaken delivery in Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects a lonely young housewife (Nimrat Kaur) to a nearly retired number cruncher (Irrfan Khan – Slumdog Millionaire), as they build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox. The story of the life we dream of versus the life in which we live, and of the courage it takes to turn fantasies into reality, in this elegant Chekhovian comedy-drama.
