Ritesh Batra directs Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in this Indian romance where a retiring office worker begins receiving the wrong lunch box prepared by a frustrated wife he has never met.
Just a lovely film. Accessible to all but subtle in its gentle manipulations. Khan and Kaur have conspicuous chemistry for two people who share minimal screen-time. His central turn as a lonely man slowly recalibrating his life in unexpected ways is a symphony of restraint and taciturn likability. Treat yourself to one of modern cinema’s finest screen romances.
