Kitchen Stove Film - The Lunchbox

The Lunchbox

April 24th, 2014

4 p.m. & 7 p.m.  

(India ~ subtitled) PG
Director: Ritesh Batra         
Cast: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddique                           

In Mumbai, home to over 18 million people, more than 5,000 dabbawallas – lunchbox couriers – navigate the chaotic streets to deliver homemade lunches to working men across the city. Ila, one such housewife, pours love and devotion into her meal preparation, all for a husband who devoutly ignores her for career gains and extramarital affairs. One day,  Saajan, a beaten-down widower about to retire from a numbing, number-crunching job, mistakenly receives an astonishingly delicious lunch and unexpectedly, friendship and courtship begin with a note about cooking. Carefully blending themes of gender values, social class and generational differences into a central love story, this film’s small nuanced moments culminate in big impact. In a word: enchanting.

Also screening as part of the 2013 TIFF Student Showcase, Teamwork by Tor Aunet of Emily Carr University
