Movie Review: The Lunchbox (2013)
The film is the story of a housewife who, in order to add some spice to her married life, packs some delicious lunch and sends it to her husband through the dabbawala. But as luck would have it, the special box is delivered at the wrong address and lands up in the hands of a widower, Saajan. This leads to a series of letters being exchanged by the two, who develop a friendship devoid of any inhibition, in fact which gives them a sense of liberation.
With actors like Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the picture, we do not have to say that the acting is impressive. Actress Nimrit Kaur (whom you have earlier seen in Kumar Sanu’s song “Tera Mera Pyar” the one which had a couple falling in love at a theatre, and more recently in a chocolate commercial) looks quite different as a Plain Jane; nevertheless does complete justice to her character.
Being presented by several banners, including Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap, the film seems to be reliable enough for a dekko.
