REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..The Lunchbox proceeds modestly and with minimal pandering (there are few mouthwatering food shots and even fewer jokey one-liners) to a satisfyingly bittersweet conclusion..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..a slow-building, pleasingly low-key romantic dramedy set in Mumbai..”
by Jon Frosch [Village Voice]
“..the comedy is more wry than uproarious, the melodrama gently poignant rather than operatic..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
