India, 1hr 44mins, Hindi and English, English subtitles, cert PG

The first of two films selected by Helen Mirra to coincide with Acts for placing woollen and linen at CAMPLE LINE this spring. A rare mix-up in Mumbai’s famously efficient ‘dabbawala’ lunchbox delivery system connects Saajan, a lonely widower close to retirement, and Ila, an unhappy housewife who prepares elaborate meals intended to win back her estranged husband’s affection. Saajan and Ila build an emotional connection through food and then notes exchanged in the daily lunchbox.
