THURS­DAY THE LUNCH­BOX

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Week In Movies -

★★★

A richly flavoured tale of mis­placed meals and un­re­quited love. In mod­ern­day Mumbai, a glitch in the city’s time-hon­oured “dab­bawala” food de­liv­ery ser­vice opens a line of cor­re­spon­dence be­tween two lonely peo­ple. Ila (Nim­rat Kaur) is send­ing heart­felt lunchtime dishes to reignite the in­ter­est of an inat­ten­tive hus­band. The ac­tual re­cip­i­ent is Sa­jaan (Ir­rfan Khan), a gruff ac­coun­tant be­witched by the feel­ing that has gone into the prepa­ra­tion of th­ese del­i­ca­cies. In time, notes are ex­changed along the culi­nary crossed wires, re­veal­ing the pair have much in com­mon. Will they ever meet and dine as one? A gen­tle, un­der­stated ro­man­tic drama. Lovely stuff.
