The conceit or concept of the movie is a delight and leads one to think that is will be a light-heared romantic comedy. The clever idea of a mixed-up delivery of a lunchbox to a man who is very happy with the contents could easily become a predictable but enjoyable story of consummated love. The journey becomes darker and more emotionally involving. Sensing the possibility that the outcome was not a foregone conclusion, I sat on the edge of my seat, immersed in the complexity of the characters. Brilliant performances in all the roles -- lead and supporting -- contribute to a gratifying evening in the theatre.


Actors were fascinating to watch, and the view into the life of another city, the sights and sounds were so vivid. I almost felt I could taste the food too. Cinematography beautifully done. Story unfolded slowly, compelling despite its analog pace in the world of paper and pen. A different world from mine, yet I took thoughtful encouragement from their own thoughtful confrontations with life. For adults and very mature teens. A gem!


We enjoyed it a great deal. I don't like the rating options provided here- Go or Must Go. It's not so magnificent that your life would be permanently challenged for not having seen it, but it was a totally enjoyable, wonderfully acted, emotionally intense and moving exploration of connections, relationships, communication, hopes and expectations. It has the sensibilities one would expect from an Indian movie. It moves at its own pace, its subtleties and nuances gently developed and unfolding. Another superb performance by Irrfan Kahn, and the beautiful Nimrat Kaur's wonderful portrayal of the lonely housewife was believable and delightful to behold. NMW & DJL


thinking the director may write a sequel as it left us hanging and wanting more for the movie, did not like the ending, hope there is a follow up


To view this movie you have to willing to be with the characters as they develop, not expect lots of outer action, rather it's the suble working of relationships.
