The Lunchbox is about two people who build a tenuous relationship when the famous Mumbai dabbawallas mess up and produce meal to the wrong person.
Saajan(Irrfan Khan) is widower on the brink of retirement while on other side Ila(Nimrat Kaur) is a housewife. Their relationship expressed entirely through notes exchanged in the lunchbox - evolves into love.
Every detail in this beautiful film speaks of the care with which it has been crafted. Saajan, who is Catholic, writes to her that he has been offered a vertical burial plot - “I’ve spent my life standing in trains and buses,” he says, “now i'll have to stand even when I’m dead.
This film served as great entertainment with its colorful cast and their wonderful perfomance.
The Lunchbox is exciting, creative, and well worth a few hours of your time.

Saajan : I have spent my life standing in trains and buses, now i'll have to stand even when I’m dead...
