Product Description

A modern day romantic Hindi drama movie, The Lunchbox DVD movie is about the lives of two completely different people and the strange series of unexpected events that forces their paths to cross. Saajan Fernandes, played by Irrfan Khan, is a man who never strays from routine and is dealing with bouts of loneliness. He gets the wrong lunchbox delivered to him one day and that's when our story takes off. This delicious lunchbox was carefully put together by Ila, played by Nimrat Kaur, who is desperately trying to regain her husband's lost love by trying out delicious new recipes everyday. When she finally discovers the mix-up, it gives rise to a note-exchanging relationship between the two protagonists, which could change their lives forever.

The Lunchbox shows us the beginning of a wonderful friendship between two people, who are on the lookout for something more from life. Saajan is trapped by habit while Ila is confused by her commitment to her husband and father of her child. Exchanging notes with each other becomes the thing they look forward to everyday, until they decide to meet face-to-face. Both Khan and Kaur show off their acting chops by taking you to through the ups and downs of a lonely and unsatisfying life. The Lunchbox Hindi movie involves a beautifully woven story that will leave your smiling and crying in equal measure. So, if you're up for a movie about modern day relationships, then you should definitely give it a watch.

  1.  EXCELLENT STORY FOOD 14 February, 2015 On


    There are three good artists in this movie – Nimrat Kaur – as Ila, Irrfan Khan – as Saajan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui – as Shaikh. There is another good actress of her time – Lillette Dubey – as Ila’s mother. The movie Lunchbox has been directed by Ritesh Batra, and was able to bag Filmfare Award 2013 for the best movie. It also bagged Critics Week Viewers Choice Award also known as Grand Rail d’Or. The movie was honored by screening at International Critics’ Week at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

    The story goes like this. Ila has a neglectful husband Rajiv who does not pay attention to her. She tries to impress her by sending her lunch cooked by herself. All such lunchboxes are delivered by Dubbawala (delivery guys). The lunchbox lands into the hands of wrong person (Saajan) who is a widower and orders his food from a restaurant. His Lunchbox also comes through the same Dubbawala.

    Aloo-Gobhi has a good role to play in the story. Ila gets completely clean lunchbox that day and thinks Rajiv would praise her in the evening after coming back from office. But it does not happen. Ila gets to know that the lunchbox had landed into the hands of some other person and it is that person who consumed and enjoyed all the food that she specially cooked for Rajiv to impress her. Next day she sends a letter in the lunchbox stating that she knows that the lunchbox she had sent for her husband had got exchanged and the guy who enjoyed it is you, perhaps. Saajan sends a reply that the vegetable had excess of salt instead of a Thank you note.

    The story evolves with more such interactions between Saajan and Ira where they start exchanging their views on many issues, one among those issues is Ila’s neglectful husband. The friendship grows further and the story takes an interesting route.

    A must watch – for all who love to watch natural acting, good story and an offbeat theme. The movie grabbed substantial number of awards from various Institutes of Awards/ in various Film Festivals.
