This is a very unusual, amazing Indian film. With he discreet it seems simple, but as is known, all ingenious is simple.

Here you will not see traditional heroism, drama and pathos inherent in most part of Indian cinema. In did not the dynamics and pressure, not the film abounds and rousing songs, no it traditional vibrating spirited dance rhythms and symphonic power.

And there is a slow story about a simple it's not a young employee of the insurance company whose life after his wife's death does not appear to be any change. His days flow very ordinary and boring as hell. Every day it is sent one same route of the house for work on train back. The work itself is also inseparable from him obsessive thoughts about that shortly after a pension will have to part with it, not give him peace. And yet every day at lunch time he consistently bring corporate lunch of the courier. But once this streamlined courier delivery for some mysterious reason, fails, and instead put him cauliflower in their metal cans he finds something long forgotten, and it, home cooked by someone unknown to someone no it, food.

So between the employees and woman cooking occurs invisible link, a kind of spiritual convergence and real friendship, even by e-mail at the help of notes left in the containers food.

This correspondence has a certain effect on his life and gradually, day by day makes a certain sense in the routine of its monotonous existence, and delivers her simple joy of communication.

Same thing about, is happening in the life of a housewife suffering from the lack of attention of her husband, and starting from unknown to her recipient secret correspondence is also not from the good we must assume life.

Although it would seem that it bad, because she has a husband, but as often, the presence of her husband have not guarantee family and individual happiness.

The main advantage of this film that he is very kind, he gives hope to all who tired of the dullness of everyday life and boring is experiencing the same a heavy period of his life. And not that will be representatives of the exclusively male, he tells the story how important, or turning importance in our life communication. Simple means we tell about complex things without any moralizing and pathos.

The film is also good and the fact that gave the opportunity to wander around the chamber for the streets, to show ordinary people a huge metropolis, which are exactly as the main character is daily moving to work on the same commuter train that literally synchronized their lives and put them together all together for a short period of time. There is a sense of documentary, of reality on screen, there is a depth imbued with human feelings.

This is a picture of faith, hope and about a happy occasion.

"The lunchbox" — movie magic. It is not India with the same name of the channel, where 24 hours some dancing in glitter flexes its muscles. It is the movie is not about how Raj fell in love with the Rath and between them stood a bad parent.

Sometimes India breaks with bright bracelets and with the audience is quiet, sincere conversation.

Accountant with a 35-year veteran his release in one offices in Mumbai one day receives not the lunchbox. Not state-owned food out of the canteen, and home delicious food. Housewife ILA made it for — office worker, but pan not sent to naznacheniyu.

Callous widower half-forgotten smells of homemade food prompted to write a note to the woman and put into the empty lunchbox. So and began a strange correspondence between two strangers in mnogomillionnoi the city.

Irfan Khan is one of the very few actors of our time, who is perfectly able to hold the pause. In pictures when, to ensure that with the ILA all right, the hero slowly brings the lunchbox to face draws the smell. And realizing that food "the same", it smiles, relieved. But so slightly, almost imperceptibly. On a surprisingly poignant moment.

Look no just recommended, must watch for everyone.

I think we forget things if we have no one to tell them to.

"The lunchbox" — the point the axis of Indian cinema, where merged together many genres and themes. There's drama met with family to talk about the fateful accident, love, (non)loyalty and problems of Indian society.

Until recently, when the mention of Bollywood in my head I had the image of a dancing crowd and I heard "Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy". Indian cinema was a set of songs, bright colors and declarations eternal love. But with the advent of "the Millionaire of slums", it finally became more human, sincere and truthful character. And "the Lunchbox" — a perfect example of this metamorphosis. Now the world can get only members of the highest caste of Indian society, but and other layers. So, "the Lunchbox" tells us about the life of middle class — an elderly clerk in a large company, Mr. Fernandez and young Housewives of Elah, the fate of which was found due to the mistakes of courier, delivering a shipment of lunch.

In this movie, just as — scenes of everyday life successfully replaced comical situations, and those in turn — lyrical moments. In no bright colors, but instead, the viewer is presented a palette of human emotions and real simulated romance — the quiet romance of everyday life. In"the Lunchbox" is said is not only love, but and friendship about the miraculous coincidence by which a lonely person, lost any hope on happiness, it suddenly acquired. This film is simple and versatile as life, this feature is unique to films of the highest class.

Overall, the film is almost perfect. The only thing that stops in the step of perfection — this is the final. But this is my personal opinion, perhaps you seem otherwise.
