The Lunchbox - Preview

The Lunchbox

Preview by Jack Foley

THE Lunchbox, India’s hottest indie film of the year, a feel-good romance with global appeal, comes to DVD & Blu Ray in July.

Saajan (Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi), a Mumbai office worker nearing retirement, is delivered the wrong lunch by a dabbawala. Young housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) had intended it for her emotionally indifferent husband. To Saajan’s surprise, the food is a vast improvement on his usual meal.

When he finds a note from Ila enclosed with another meal, he decides to write back. So begins award-winning short filmmaker Ritesh Batra’s exquisite comedy-drama.

The Lunchbox, directed by Ritesh Batra, is released on Blu-ray and DVD by Artificial Eye on Monday, July 14, 2014.
