The film, set in contemporary Mumbai, revolves around a mistaken delivery by the famously efficient Dabbawalas (lunchbox service).
Ila is an unhappy housewife who realises that her husband has tired of the marriage. She attempts to please him with special meals she cooks for his lunch. Her husband’s lunchbox is sent mistakenly to Saajan a clerk in an insurance office, a lonely widower facing retirement. The mistake leads to a correspondence via the lunchbox and an unusual romance.
A charming and gentle film, one of the quiet hits of 2014.
