So what's so delicious inside The Lunchbox that everyone recommends to have a bite of it? Well, I could think of only one comparison i.e. it's like delicious home-made food on which this movie is based. Like home made food, it's all about the taste of the food which comes out when your mother or your wife or your sister cooks it with their unconditional love. It's not about flashy ambiance where food is served or expensive utensils in which food is served. So, The Lunchbox has lot of taste in small moments of love and sadness. The characters, locations, dialogs, atmosphere are all straight from the real life. The three lead actors Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in their superlative performances wear their characters like they wear their clothes. First half lights up with good blend of humor and emotions but like not all the time home-made food ends with sweet desert, so the movie also goes the unanticipated hard way and leave you to embrace its bitter sweet ending. All in all, Ritesh Batra's first cinematic dish is delicious but leaves you hungry at the end wanting for more.
