Ritesh Batra was born in Mumbai. He was a fellow at the Sundance Institute Screenwriters and Directors Labs. He has directed the short films The Morning Ritual (08), Gareeb Nawaz’s Taxi (10) and Café Regular, Cairo (12). The Lunchbox (13) is his feature debut.
When a hot lunch is delivered to the wrong desk, a frustrated Mumbai wife finds herself engaging in an intimate, perhaps life-changing correspondence with a complete stranger. Ritesh Batra’s charming, intelligent feature debut is about communication, longing and the good things that can happen when we see accident as opportunity.
