Middle-class Mumbai housewife Ila prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to her husband at his workplace in an attempt to add some spice to her marriage. However, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan, a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following day's lunchbox which Saajan responds to. A strange correspondence between total strangers develops into little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. They each discover a new sense of self and find an anchor to hold on to in the overwhelming city that so often crushes hopes and dreams.
'The Lunchbox is perfectly handled and beautifully acted; a quiet storm of banked emotions.' Xan Brooks, The Observer
