Mumbai has a famously efficient lunchbox delivery system. Every day, a community of 5,000 delivery men, called Dabbawallahs, bring hot meals from the kitchens at homes to office workers. They navigate a busy, labyrinthine city, unable to read the street signs or names of buildings, yet delivery to the wrong address is almost unheard of, a Harvard University study concluding that just one in eight million lunchboxes goes astray.

Ritesh Batra’s delightful debut feature film imagines what might happen when that rare wayward delivery happens, and from that premise creates a heart warming romance that has been charming audiences worldwide since it premiered at Cannes last year.

Irrfan Khan stars as a jaded accountant close to retirement who makes a connection with a lonely housewife (Nimrat Kaur) when he samples her cooking by mistake. (Notes by Michael Hayden.)
