The Lunchbox

Batra’s debut film won him a Filmfare Award for Best First Film. Shot on location in Mumbai, a lonely housewife (Ila) tries to revive her marriage by some adventurous cooking with recipes shared by her neighbour Auntie. Unfortunately a lunchbox mixup means the food is mis-delivered to a very grumpy office worker who is nearing retirement and begins an unlikely communication between them.
