The film captures what happens when a mistaken delivery in Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects a young, lonely, disillusioned housewife to an older man in the dusk of his life as they build a fantasy world together through notes in a lunchbox. It stars thinking actors noted for their mature, understated performances – Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles.
The film was released in India on 20th September 2013 and holds the unique distinction of being an all-round box-office success along with being widely acclaimed by critics. The film was screened at International Critics’ Week at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and later won the Critics Week Viewers Choice Award also known as Grand Rail d’Or. It was shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. The Lunchbox was nominated for the Film Not in the English Language category of the British Academy Film Awards 2015.
