The Lunchbox (PG tbc)
Director: Ritesh Batra
Starring: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui
India, 2013, 1 hour 44 minutes, subtitles
A delightful comic romance between two mismatched characters who never meet. Lonely young wife Ila is dissatisfied with her daily lot that includes preparing lunch for her neglectful husband that’s delivered by the legendary Mumbai Lunchbox wallahs who everyday deliver a million similar lunches to desks all over the city. Solitary widowed accountant Sajaan is not sure what his imminent retirement will bring. But when Ila’s lunchbox goes astray, she builds a gentle rapport with the grouchy Sajaan via the notes they exchange in her lunchbox. The deftly paced, humorous script reveals a wonderfully observed range of subtle emotions as their friendship blossoms, making for a feel-good love story that anyone can enjoy.
