Synopsis

When Saajan (Irrfan Khan, Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi), an ill-tempered Mumbai office worker nearing retirement, is delivered the wrong lunch he is pleasantly surprised by the improvement in his food. The lunchbox had been intended for young housewife Ila's emotionally indifferent husband in an attempt to win back his favour. When he fails to respond to her efforts, Ila decides to enclose a note in the next meal and Saajan, his taste-buds tickled and his interest piqued, decides to write back... An exquisite comedy-drama featuring some of the most mouth-watering scenes of cooking and eating ever seen on film, The Lunchbox is a warm-hearted treat that will leave you hungry for more.
