The Lunchbox Dabba

Ritesh Batra / India, Germany, USA, France / 2013 / 104 min / Slovene subtitles, English, Hindi / 15+


The DVD of the film is available in our Bookshop. (List of available DVDs in Slovene only)

“Sometimes even the wrong train can take you to the right destination.”

Every day, Ila prepares with love and affection a meal for her husband, delivering it through Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox system. One day, she discovers it is not her husband but an estranged accountant who enjoys her delicious meals. Upset at first, their note-sending via the lunchbox soon turns into a loving correspondence between these two solitary souls. (Hindi and English spoken)

»The Lunchbox is a simple story of friendship that develops between two strangers, prisoners of their respective inhibitions. Of course, the epistolary relation is more a mark of literary tradition than film but considering this is the story of two people who find it difficult to communicate with people around them and that are behind the times, it seems to that the letters and notes in the lunchbox would be the best way for the them to communicate and bring them out of their shells and give them confidence.«
