THE LUNCHBOX (DABBA)

A mistaken delivery in Mumbai's famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects a young housewife to an older man in the dusk of his life as they build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox.

A sweet, feel-good movie that is pleasant on the eye. The whole story is very gentle and quite constrained with the focus primarily on the relationships between the two protagonists but some focus on their secondary ones. The shots of Mumbai are just what you'd expect - I'd like to visit it one day and travel on the public transport system. Seems like an adventure in itself! The movie seemed a touch long.
