Saajan (Irrfan Khan), a Mumbai office worker nearing retirement is delivered the wrong lunch by a dabbawala. Young housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) had intended it for her emotionally indifferent husband. To Saajan's surprise, the food is a vast improvement on his usual meal.
When he finds a note from Ila enclosed with another meal, he decides to write back. So begins Ritesh Batra's exquisite comedy-drama.

This is a very touching almost perfect romantic film. It is a moving story that doesnt quite finish as one might have expected were it a more conventional Hollywood/Bollywood production. Yet if it falls short of the idyllic conclusion it would have received elsewhere, it is nevertheless a very satisfying, if ultimately a more realistic ending. In spite of the failure of the characters in the film to seize the opportunities they appear to be presented with, I found the characters likeable and entirely human. Ultimately, the film tells a universal story situated in an exotic setting. Well worth it.
