THURSDAY THE LUNCHBOX
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.
