Fed up with depressing social dramas? Then don’t miss this funny, elegant and optimistic romance set in contemporary Mumbai. One of the city’s unusual phenomena is the 5,000-member community of Dabbawallahs, who have filled Mumbai’s streets for some 120 years. Every morning, this courier service delivers lunchboxes from housewives’ kitchens to their husbands’ offices, and then brings the empty boxes back in the evening. This incredibly sophisticated delivery system was even studied by a team from Harvard University, which found that only one in four million lunchboxes is delivered to the wrong person. This talented Indian filmmaker’s feature debut tells the story of this lunchbox. “Spiced” with just the right ingredients, this story of a wayward lunch that brings together the attractive but neglected wife Ila with the sad, retirement-ready Saajan could just as well have been written by a screenwriter from the golden age of Hollywood.
