Foodie Flicks: The Lunchbox (2013)

The Lunchbox 1

I am not actually a fan of general Indian movies involving treechasing scenes or the high pitch vocals of the music and dances.

However, I am now watching again The Lunchbox upon seeing Chef Bradley @expandingpalates timeline which is a great reference for previously unknown food films.

By the way, not only that this movie involves good looking home Indian food and describes the astonishing yet complicated dabbawala system, it also takes us on an epistolary journey of love between two people who actually never met before over an error of the lunchbox delivery.

The Lunchbox is poetic, affectionate, tenderly humorous and also vividly portrays the struggles of life in India for common people.

The ending is a memorable one.
