The Lunchbox (2013) Movie Reviewson rottentomatoes

"A lovely little film from a place where the little things linger."Joe Williams
"A pleasure, from the fascinating intricacies of Mumbai-style interlocking lunch containers to the quietly masterful performance of Khan."Moira MacDonald
"Warm, and warmly predictable."John Anderson
""The Lunchbox" is a feast of delights, one of the best stories about the connection between food and love the movies have ever seen."Colin Covert
""What do we live for?" is the question that pops up in The Lunchbox, a romance set in Mumbai. The film, a first feature from Ritesh Batra, aims to offer a meaningful answer: We live, ideally, for love."Steven Rea
"A humanist fable from India, the film is actually a romance in the classic tradition, a "Brief Encounter" transposed to the rhythms and flavors of modern-day Mumbai."Ty Burr
"A romantic comedy based on the most trifling and sentimental of conceits, while deftly avoiding a descent into schmaltz."Tony Wong
"Atouching and credible story that easily draws the viewer into the lives of its characters."Mary Houlihan
"From the start, the movie mingles savory realism with elements of magic."Michael Sragow
"As in an old Nora Ephron comedy, each of the prospective lovers is supplied with an irritating comic foil."J. R. Jones
"Like a lot of movies, but especially foreign films, "The Lunchbox" has a central idea and winning characters, and it builds a compelling situation."Mick LaSalle
"This gentle romantic drama, by the Indian director Ritesh Batra, packs twenty minutes of action into its hour-and-three-quarters running time."Richard Brody
"This warm and affectionate human comedy from India is charming in a delicate and unforced way."Kenneth Turan
"The Lunchbox is a first feature for director Ritesh Batra, but it nicely captures the almost overwhelming crush and noise of contemporary India, and it plays cleverly and delicately with the tension of whether its two correspondents might eventually meet."Bob Mondello
"For the acting alone, "The Lunchbox" is a sumptuous treat."Joe Morgenstern
