The Lunchbox

May 19

Filmed on location in the bustle of Mumbai, this romantic comedy stars Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi, The Amazing Spider-Man). Khan gives a beautifully reticent performance as a world-weary office worker, surprised to find himself in a lunchtime relationship, of sorts, thanks to the city’s legendary dabbawala lunchbox delivery service.

“perfectly handled and beautifully acted; a quiet storm of banked emotions” Xan Brooks, Observer

The Lunchbox is either a piquant romance or a wise comedy. The director’s confidence with such a delicate story makes it successful as both.” Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald

Starring: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Cannes: Grand Rail d’Or for Ritesh Batra; Asian Film Awards: Best Actor for Irrfan Kahn
