Mumbai is famous for its highly efficient lunchbox delivery system. It's often said that the carriers only make one mistake per six million deliveries. THE LUNCHBOX, a superb debut from Indian writer-director Ritesh Batra, focuses on that rare mixup. Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi) stars as Saajan, a widower who accidentally receives a delicious meal prepared by Ila (Nimrat Kaur), a younger woman attempting to rekindle her marriage. When Ila realizes what's happened, she begins a heartfelt correspondence with Saajan. A breakout hit both in India and across the world, The Lunchbox is a thoughtful, intelligent romantic comedy, as well as a fascinating look at modern-day Mumbai.
