At a time when people are just a call away, debutant writer-director Ritesh Batra used the idea of exchanging notes in tiffin boxes to help the leads of ‘The Lunchbox’ communicate their feelings and emotions. Interestingly enough, as most of the film’s users communicate through texting, this old-fashioned love story was quite heartwarming. Be sure to hit the theaters to see The LunchBox releasing soon at a theater near you!
