This is now confirmed for the 6.30pm showing, meet outside entrance for 6.15pm (inside if it's raining).

One of Mumbai’s miracles is the lunchbox delivery system. Mumbai’s Dabbawallahs are a community of 5000 dabba (lunchbox) deliverymen. Every morning the Dabbawallahs deliver hot meals from the kitchens of housewives to the offices of their husbands, and then return the empty lunchboxes back home in the afternoon. Our story starts with a wrongly delivered lunchbox. With this mistake a connection is made between a young housewife and an older man in the dusk of his life. As the two begin to exchange notes they build a beautiful fantasy realm together that threatens to put their real lives at risk.
