  • Ritesh Batra's THE LUNCHBOX stars Irrfan Khan as Saajan, a government accountant who is nearing retirement. He pays for his lunch to be delivered at work from a local restaurant, but his order is mixed with a meal prepared by Ila (Nimrat Kaur), a housewife who thought she was making lunch for her husband. When he eats every bite of the incorrectly delivered lunch, Ila asks her husband about her success, but his response convinces her that her hubby never got the food she prepared. Ila puts a note in the next lunch, and soon she and Saajan develop a pen-pal relationship. THE LUNCHBOX screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival

  • Critic Reviews
    "THE LUNCHBOX tells its tale with exceptional grace, and an urgency that grows, paradoxically, from its slow but assured pace."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[T]his warm and affectionate human comedy from India is charming in a delicate and unforced way."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Serving as a backdrop, the streets, homes, and office spaces of Mumbai are rendered in warm tones by cinematographer Michael Simmonds..."
    A.V. Club

    "THE LUNCHBOX has the measured pace and Classical restraint of a romance from the 30s or 40s."
    New York Times

    "The realism and the fable blend nicely."
    Film Comment

    "[A] witty and perceptive film that reveals the hopes, sorrows and regrets of ordinary people."
    Chicago Sun-Times
