A mistake in Mumbai's famously infallible lunchbox delivery system connects a young housewife to a melancholy widower (Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi), who instantly falls for the anonymous creator of the delicacies. Halting, tentative, but eventually tender, communications ensue. This elegant Chekhovian comedy-drama, anchored by Khan’s mesmerizing presence, is the story of the life we dream of versus the life we live, and of the courage it takes to turn our fantasies into reality. D: Ritesh Batra, India, subtitled, 2013, 104m
