For its first screening in 2015 Pics and Flicks is pleased to present:
Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system transports thousands of meals every day from kitchens to offices. A Harvard University study found that just one in a million lunchboxes is ever delivered to the wrong address. This is the story of that one lunchbox.
Ila, a neglected housewife, attempts to spice up her marriage by preparing a special lunch for her husband. When it is accidentally delivered to Saajan, a lonely widower on the brink of retirement, they exchange notes to each other to get to the bottom of the mistaken delivery. Their notes gradually evolve into a series of intimate little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears and small joys. Still strangers physically, Ila and Saajan become swept up in a relationship built on the fantasy of their letters.
Charming and whimsical, it’s a feast for the eyes – David Parkinson, EMPIRE MAGAZINE
For the acting alone, “The Lunchbox” is a sumptuous treat – Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL
The comedy is more wry than uproarious, the melodrama gently poignant rather than operatic, and the sentimentality just sweet enough to be satisfying rather than bothersome – A.O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES
